Sony officially kicked off the launch for the PS Vita in the UAE. Sitting squarely in the center of The Dubai Mall Star Atrium was a giant blue PS Vita box, which drew plenty of curious looks from passing shoppers. Within the hour a sizable crowd had formed, drawn towards the silver models and acrobatic dancers who were parading around the stage.

With host Dave Crane working the crowd, 100 members of the audience as well as winners in the PS Vita Facebook game were invited to take part in a quick game on stage, where one lucky winner would walk away with the first ever PS Vita in the UAE. A simple Wheel-of-Fortune type game started to eliminate sizable portions of the participants, until there was just two players left. After a nail biting second spin, the winner was declared to be Derrick Pereira who was ecstatic at being awarded a brand new PS Vita from Sony Playstation.

The PS Vita will be officially available in the UAE at all retail outlets from February 22nd.
