GameStop managers get PS4, Xbox One
[UPDATE] Retailer confirms all store managers will receive next-generation consoles and games for free at launch this holiday season.
[UPDATE] Neowin has confirmed with a GameStop representative that all store managers will also receive an Xbox One at launch. No mention was made of any free games.
The original story is below.
All GameStop managers will receive a PlayStation 4 unit and seven games at launch, the retailer confirmed with Joystiq, after an original announcement at the GameStop Expo today in Las Vegas.
A GameStop spokesperson told Joystiq, "Beyond is for PS3, all others are for PS4. Some are physical and some are digital vouchers."
To prepare its employees for the impending arrival of the Xbox One and PS4, GameStop president Tony Bartel said last week that the company's 4,400 store managers in the United States will receive hands-on training with both platforms.
"We will continue to be the most knowledgeable source for buying a new console and related games and accessories," Bartel said.
The Xbox One and PS4 will launch in November. It is not clear if GameStop managers will also receive an Xbox One and games.
