Games 13 as most of you all know is one of the biggest gaming events in the UAE.
The Gaming Alliance Middle East was formed in 2008 by Microsoft Xbox Gulf, PlayStation Middle East & Africa, Pluto Games and Red Entertainment Distribution. Collectively, these companies represent the major brands and players in the global video game industry.
While PlayStation and Xbox are the two major video game hardware platforms in the Middle East region, software publishers represented include Activision Blizzard, Capcom, Disney Interactive, Electronic Arts, Konami, SEGA, Take 2 Interactive, Ubisoft, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and their associated brands and labels.
In 2008, the GAME committee embarked on a project to create an annual show that would give video game enthusiasts a peek into the most exciting and anticipated games and hardware technology in the world.
The show was received very enthusiastically by the community and since then has grown into a much anticipated feature on the region’s gaming calendar.
