Major videogame retailer Gamestop will have over 4,200 stores hosting PS4 pre-launch events in anticipation for Sony’s next-gen console this Thursday evening. The events will start at 6 p.m. on November 14 leading up to the midnight release for the console.
“Our knowledgeable associates and our unique trade programs make us the most convenient and affordable place to purchase everything that you need for a great gaming experience,” SVP of merchandising at GameStop Bob Puzon said.
These PS4 launch events will feature live music, contests, prizes, and at even some stores, food trucks. There will also be PS4 demo kiosks at participating stores before the console’s official launch.
The PS4 remains sold out though, so only people who have pre-ordered the console will receive one. There won’t be any available for purchase at the stores.
Customers can currently buy copies of Killzone: Shadow Fall and Knack along with the DualShock 4, Playstation Camera, and the PS4 vertical stand. All of EA’s titles will be available tomorrow, including Fifa 14 and Battlefield 4.
Gamestop have also stated that they’ll be hosting the same type of events for the Xbox One launch next week, on November 21.
