UK Gamers Who Didn't Pre-Order The PS4 Still Have A Chance...

The PlayStation 4 launches in the UK on November 29, but maybe you didn't go out of your way to pre-order.

Normally, that would mean you're SOL for a while. But Sony wants to give gamers who didn't pre-order a chance to nab the new console on launch day; you just have to show up at Sony's PlayStation lounge in Covent Garden on Thursday night.

They wouldn't say exactly how many PS4s they'll have available, but we know it'll be a first-come, first-served basis so you had best move fast. It'll be a party atmosphere, too, as Sony will buy those who wait in line slices of Domino's pizza as well as cans of Red Bull. Attendees can also watch a performance from rapper Tinie Tempah. SCE UK MD Fergal Gara said that while PS4 pre-orders "sold out in record time," they still wanted to give consumers a chance to snag one on launch day; hence, the Covent Garden event:

"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."

So, if you've finally decided that you desperately want a PS4 this year and you didn't pre-order, this is your chance. Don't miss out!

Anyone here from the UK, I hope your PS4 turns out fine. Issues have been less than 10% so far in NA, but that's still quiet a bit. I'm hoping it won't be as significant over there.

Lucky for them.

Every retailer in AUS is sold out till next year. SOME of them have limited stock available for the second shipment due in December though.

wish companies would make these things a register event or something.
i mean they wont say how many systems they have, so what if they only have 100 systems and 1000 people turn up?
one reason why i stopped going to these things, no thanks but i got better things to do than stand in line in the wee hours in the morning for 5+ hours not knowing if im completely wasting my time!

Then pre-order the system before you have to wait in line for. This way you're done and you now know you have one coming for sure.

Doubt it will be only a 5hr wait. The wait at my local, Maine of all places Walmart, had people in line 6hrs before launch and this one is an official Sony event the one in New York had people lined up for over 24hrs.
