If there's a market for them, it's certainly the UAE – realised by Jumbo Electronics, who will sell luxury gold gaming consoles to the Arab world at the GAMES14 convention

British retail icon Harrods recently debuted a gold-plated Xbox one, and now the shiny opulent gilded consoles are making their way to the UAE via regional retailer Jumbo Electronics.

The luxury 'toys' include Xbox and PS4 gaming consoles made of gold, which will be exclusively showcased at GAMES14, the largest video game convention in the Middle East that opened yesterday at Dubai World Trade Centre. The show runs until September 13 and Jumbo will present the special consoles, which feature a rose gold case created by renowned Italian jeweller, Gatti, at the convention. 

Nadeem Khanzadah, head retail at Jumbo Electronics, said: "With the Middle East gaming market estimated to be worth over $1billion according to Gartner, events such as GAMES14 play a crucial role in connecting game developers, console manufacturers and vendor-partners with end-users, and help to leverage the growing potential of gaming in the region.

"We are particularly excited to be launching the most unique and valuable gaming consoles in the world at GAMES14, specially created by Gatti. Available to both Xbox and PS4 fans, the high-end materials and exquisite detailing of the gold consoles make it a great collectible item for gamers who love luxury."
