Jacky’s Electronics, a leading consumer electronics retail chain in the UAE, has launched season four of its gaming competition.

Sponsored by Nintendo, and in association with ITP.net, participants will battle out one another to win a 32-inch TV and latest edition of Nintendo Wii console with game bundle.
“It has been our tradition for years to stage friendly gaming competitions from PC-based to console-based gaming. The UAE’s gaming community is continuously growing and console-based gaming currently dominates with Wii as one of the most popular products in the market,” said Ashish Panjabi, chief operating officer, Jacky’s Electronics.
“Nintendo are one of the pioneers in the gaming console business and the Nintendo Wii was one of those devices that revolutionised gaming. The interactivity that the Wii console brought to gaming has seen the Wii become a device that the whole family can enjoy.”
“The Mario Kart game that we’re using for the competition is one of the most recognisable video games on the Wii platform with its new set of tricks, brand new tracks & arenas and ways to play. The game has gained tremendous fan base even in the UAE due to the worldwide racing feature via the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection that shows regional and worldwide races,” Panjabi added. – TradeArabia News Service
