Gamestop managers to receive a PS4, seven games

Monday, 26th August 2013 21:47 GMT By Debabrata Nath

Being a GameStop manager will net you a free PlayStation 4 console along with seven new games. All of this will be delivered on launch day.

The retail chain confirmed this news to Joystiq during the ongoing GameStop EXPO, which is being held in Las Vegas.

A source also informed Joystiq about what those seven games are going to be. The games will include Killzone: Shadow Fall, NBA 2k14, FIFA 14, Battlefield 4 and Need for Speed: Rivals among others.

The PS4 comes out November 15 in the U.S and November 29 in Europe.

    It is. If MS did this though, we’d have over 50 comments in here allready.

    @8 Its called retail. And it happens everywhere. It never use to happen in the games industry because it use to be so niche. Now, especially with competitors going head to head, there’s selling to actually do. To be honest I’m shocked MS isn’t doing it to.

    @8 As it happens, Microsoft have already done this – with their “preferred retail partners”, GAME and Gamestation . Nearly two years ago, after the 360 S was released, all the store managers received a brand new console (320GB of course), a Kinect and two games at the managers conference.

    It’s nothing new.

    @9, 10
    Doh. The cool thing these days is to hate on MS, no matter if it’s something new or old.

    Well it can’t be anyone hating on ms this time can it? Because the problem people are having is that Sony is doing this and not that MS is. So, technically people just don’t like the fact that others are getting a free console?

    @8 – I think MS has kind of. They’re giving them out at a Gamestop Expo or something like that.

    Must admit, I’m pretty jelly of dem managers right now.

    You guys realize they get a lot of games for free from companies to test to talk about, this is not a “new thing” by any means, not sure if you know that or not, and they are getting the xbox one also. No word yet if games come with it.

    I make more than they do but secretly its been a dream job of mine to manage a GameStop. With perks like these what gamer wouldn’t want to work there.

    This is no different than what the music industry used to do with radio stations to get them to play certain music, what the drug industry does with doctors to get the to push certain prescription drugs, or what major industries like big oil or heavily funded interest groups like the NRA do to the US Congress to get their laws passed.

    It’s lobbying.

    @3 Not a bribe at all. They’ll probably get an Xbox One as well. Same way that the Game/Gamestation managers (you know, the ones that never do any selling as they leave it all to the staff) have been confirmed as getting here in the UK.
