Tesco offering first come, first served PlayStation 4 stock at 150 UK stores

PlayStation 4 will launch in the UK at midnight.

by

Tesco will offer PlayStation 4's on a first come, first served basic at 150 of its Extra stores for the machine's European launch tonight.

No preorder is required, but stock will be limited to one per customer, and Tesco has its own postcode checker to help potential customers work out their nearest store.

London outlets with day-one PlayStation 4 stock include Tesco stores in Surrey Quays, Lea Valley, and Purley. Other major branches in the UK include Stretford, Stockport, West Bromwich, Shoreham-by-sea, and Bournemouth.

Alongside Tesco, Asda is offering walk-in stock at 155 branches, and Sony themselves are offering to sell machines at midnight if you can make it to Covent Garden.

The PlayStation 4 will launch across Europe tomorrow. In the UK, the machine will cost £349.

I called several Tesco stores that the website lists as PS4 stockists and none has it at the moment in London... I am quite annoyed that due to an Amazon fuck up, I lost my day 1 pre-order.... Some greedy bastards are now selling the console for even 600-700 pounds on ebay... Anyway.. just have to wait now... probably 2-3 months...

I imagine that anyone not already in a queue somewhere is probably out of luck.

Good luck to those who don't have a pre-order, and good luck to those who manage to purchase a machine in making it home safe.

If Asda are doing it in 155 stores and Tesco are doing it in 150 stores, why are Tesco in the title?

Strange title, shouldn't it be "supermarkets offering walk-in stock or something."

seems kinda biased to me. xD

I am tempted to get one but I live in dodgy area in London, there is 50% of getting stabbed on the way back home.

Don't bother checking if Maplin have any. Those dumb fucks missed the boat on the console launches by fannying around moaning they wouldn't get a decent profit margin off them and trying to haggle the price with suppliers. Never mind the fact every single unit they could get was a guaranteed sale unlike most the shite they buy in (like the frigging Ouya which they expect to compete with the Bone and the Pisser). Sorry for non-sequiter but my employer is really really stupid.

That's cool and all but the ticket system of the U.S stores for PS4 lineup seemed more organized.

@IJONOI Well London is almost like a third world country, so it would not surprise me at all.

@berserker66666 Nah, there's nothing the British like more than an orderly organized queue. We can't get enough of them!
