GameStop will hold special PlayStation 4 pre-launch events on Sunday, November 10 at all United States stores, the company announced today.

As part of the one-day events, GameStop will offer triple trade-in bonus credit when customers turn in hardware, resulting in 90 percent extra in-store credit, but only if applied to paying off a PS4 they already preordered. Software trade-ins will yield the normal credit values.

PS4 systems remain sold out at GameStop.

Also during the PS4 pre-launch events, shoppers will be able to purchase available PS4 games and accessories. Killzone: Shadow Fall is currently available at GameStop, alongside DualShock 4 controllers and other add-ons.

Select GameStop stores will also have PS4 units available for customers to play.

On the evening of November 14, numerous GameStop stores across the country will remain open for the midnight release of the PS4. Units will go on sale at 12:01 a.m. for those who preordered a system, GameStop said.

GameStop will hold a similar event on November 17 for the Xbox One, which launches on November 22. More details on this event will be announced next week.
