PS4 pre-orders now open at GAME UK, requires £20 deposit

Thursday, 21st February 2013 09:03 GMT By Dave Cook

PS4 was only just revealed by Sony this morning, but UK retailer GAME is already taking pre-orders for the powerhouse new console.

In a statement sent to VG247 this morning, GAME confirmed that it is taking pre-orders on the console “immediately”, and championed Sony’s reveal last night.

You can now pre-order the console at GAME stores or on their website. All you need is a £20 deposit.

Martyn Gibbs, CEO at GAME said, “The PS4 is looking like a truly revolutionary console. Sony has raised the bar for how we will experience and access games and how gamers will control their experiences. The new features will give developers a whole new way to create incredible games, so we look forward to bringing the PS4 to the gaming communities of the UK.

“Many console launches have seen demand significantly outstrip supply so we would urge anyone wishing to get their hands on a PS4 from launch to register their interest with our store teams or online as soon as possible.”

Will you be getting one?

Meanwhile, check out every trailer from last night’s reveal here.

    Bah, surely at fall 2013 GAME doesn’t exists anymore.

    ShopTo have it up for pre-order too and you don’t have to pay £20 either. I imagine amazon will be up soon too, again with no deposit. Not sure why GAME are asking for £20. In trouble? If so you won’t get that back.

    GAME is collapsing, fellas. I wouldn’t pre-order on their website (especially when £20 are required) if I were you.

    I think Game have done deposits for console pre-orders for a while. Presumably your price is very much Captain Placeholder?

    Going with a company that that knows how to handle preorders like this is a good idea. There are always massive delays suffered when you order through Amazon and its ilk, so you have to weigh up the risks. But supply is always a problem at launch so stick with someone who is likely to have a larger slice of the pie.

    Edit: Also what #7 says below. I was in my local GAME on friday last week and it was bloody busy. Same with the newly opened and larger Gamestation down the road.

    You guys couldn’t be more wrong. I work at GAME, and I know that since our restructure we are doing really well. GAME as well as other shops (HMV, gamestation, Blockbuster) have always done deposits on consoles. Simply because if someone puts money on something, they are more likely to get it. If we didn’t we could take thousands of free pre-orders and then people could go else where. You don’t have to be a genius to figure that out.

    @7 I don’t agree with you, but I’m happy your not one of the people who got fired.

    £20 is a lot to ask, from a company who didn’t hesitate to stop people using gift cards. I don’t trust GAME, they are extremely overpriced, not just compared to online, but also other high street stores.

    @8 The only reason people couldn’t use gift cards was because we were in administration. It wasn’t our choice and it happens to every shop that enters administration. Just like HMV right now. They would never stop letting people use gift cards for any other reason.
