PICTURES: PS4 arrives at PlayStation’s pop-up lounge

PS4 has arrived in the UK.

Following Xbox One’s arrival last Friday, that means that the next-gen is now officially the current-gen. PS3 and Xbox 360 are SO last-gen.

Blaine Smith from Bedford was the first person to pre-order the PS4 from GAME and was the first in line to collect the machine from PlayStation’s PS4 pop-up lounge along with London’s Imran Chowdri who had been queuing since Tuesday.

Last night was incredible. We opened more than 300 GAME around the country and the response from gamers was fantastic,” GAME’s chief digital officer Ian Chambers stated.

The buzz for PlayStation 4 has been huge – visitor numbers to our website hit almost two million last week and we’ve seen an explosion of social media activity too.

PlayStation 4 has been years in the making and its arrival marks a real highlight in this epic season of gaming. Looking at the initial response it’s clear that sales will easily top the PlayStation 3 launch sales and there is still huge demand which we expect to continue into 2014 and beyond."
