PS4 & Xbox One: GAME UK offering launch queue jump to pre-purchase customers
UK retailer GAME is offering launch-day queue jumps to anyone who pays for their Xbox One or PS4 before their respective launches.
MCV reports that the incentive is part of the retailer’s new ‘Get Gaming Quicker’ scheme which enables customers to pre-order either console, pay for it in advance and even trade-in towards it ahead of time. If you trade-in three or more titles you also get an additional 20% towards your purchase.
Doing the above will get you access to GAME’s launch-day ‘fast lanes’ at the PS4 and Xbox One midnight launches and the following day. They reckon it will make the selling process “ten times faster” for customers.
Not quite sure how they got the maths on this one.
Xbox One customers can take the steps above between November 20-21 ahead of the console’s November 22 launch, while PS4 customers can do it between November 27-28 ahead of the console’s November 29 launch.
So what do you think? Any takers?
