PlayStation 4 Midnight Launch in UAE [T-break Tech (Middle East)]

(T-break Tech (Middle East) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) After nearly a month since it’s US launch – and that’s a lot of waiting – gamers in the UAE will finally be able to get their grubby hands on a PlayStation 4 this weekend. Sony’s next-gen home console launches on Friday, December 13 (perfectly auspicious), and to commemorate the occasion both local retailers Geekay Games and Virgin Megastores will be hosting midnight launches at their respective stores.

The PlayStation 4 will retail at AED 1699, along with a plethora of exclusive and third-party titles such as Killzone: Shadowfall, Knack, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Battlefield 4, LEGO Marvels, NBA 2K14, FIFA 14, Need for Speed Rivals, etc., for approx. AED 299. PlayStation 4 accessories such as the PlayStation Camera (AED 299) and DualShock 4 controller (AED 269) will be available as well.

As with any high-profile launch, stocks will be severely limited and preference will be given to those have pre-ordered the system. However, those willing to try their luck might be able to score one as both Geekay Games and Virgin Megastores have confirmed that they have some reserve stock to accommodate day-one buyers.

PlayStation 4 launched on November 15 in the Americas, and on November 29 in UK. The system has sold more than 2.1 million units so far.

Featured Whitepapers

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
