We’re delighted to bring this exclusive evening experience to our stores and customers – we know they are going to be thrilled to be some of the first gamers in the UK to get hands on with PS4 over a month before it hits the shelves. Our relationship and partnership with Sony is key to the work we’re doing – we have already delivered three great lock-in tours with Sony this year and this PS4 tour promises to be the best yet.
