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!
