# 28 PlayStation

playstation-3-game-consoleWho said video games are only for kids?  Many generations in Saudi love to play video games.  However,this post is not about Saudis who find their joy in playing video games.  I will not talk about video games in general, it’s specifically about the one and the only game console that has been dominating every house in Saudi for decades… allow me to introduce the Sony PlayStation.  The Sony PlayStation is the game console that every Saudi kid dreamed about and strived to get A’s in his classes in order for his parents to buy them one.
“BLAY” Station became a must in any Saudi household…it is one of those necessities that is a must have for a Saudi household… like TVs, dining table, sleeping beds, etc.   PlayStation became so popular that people started referring any video game console by calling it PlayStation.   Mention XBox to Saudis and they will think that you are talking about a new coffee shop in town.  Walk into any bachelor pad in Saudi, you will witness three entertainment aspects every one has in common; people playing cards (Bal’ot), hookah, and PlayStation.   Don’t be surprise if you see a bunch of Saudis reading Japanese.  They mastered the language by playing  the number one game on PlayStation for years, which is Winning Eleven (a Japanese soccer game).

  1. You updated! Yay 😀
    another oldie but a goodie!
    Playstation has been in my house since before I was born. I can’t imagine our house without it. However, now I’m seeing a lot of Wii’s.. could they possibly shift over to a Nintendo? 😛

  3. Hey I just wanted to let you know, I really like the writing on your site. But I am employing Flock on a machine running version 8.x of Crashbang Ubuntu and the look and feel aren’t quite satisfactory. Not a important deal, I can still essentially read the articles and research for information, but just wanted to inform you about that. The navigation bar is kind of hard to use with the config I’m running. Keep up the good work!
