Those who haven’t secured a launch day PS4 will have the chance to buy one at the launch event at midnight on Thursday night (November 28th).
Stock will be available at the PS4 Lounge in Covent Garden and will be available on a first-come first-served basis. Queuing is expected to start in the morning and those brave enough to do so will be supplied with Dominoes and Red Bull.
UK hip hop artist Tinie Tempah will also be performing.
“Day one PS4 pre-orders sold out in record time and this could be the last chance for anyone who wants to get their hands on a console before Christmas,” SCE UK MD and VP Fergal Gara stated.
“We really wanted to offer some way for people to buy on launch day, and this is a fantastic opportunity for anyone that hasn’t already pre-ordered to get their hands on a PS4 on day one. The excitement in the run up to our UK launch has been phenomenal, and we want to thank gamers for their support by giving them the chance to take a PS4 home at the earliest opportunity.”
GAME CEO Martyn Gibbs added: “The excitement and anticipation for the PS4 launch is absolutely massive. We’re stepping into the next generation of gaming and this really is a fundamental shift for the industry.
The PS4 launch is going to surpass anything Playstation has done before – our pre-order numbers are around four times higher than the PS3 and we’re seeing those numbers grow every day. We’re delighted that we are able to bring additional last-minute stock to the UK market and keep delivering for the UK gaming communities and we can’t wait for the official launch.”
