Folks in the UK will get lucky and snag a 20th Anniversary Playstation 4
Want to get your hands on a 20th Anniversary Playstation 4? Well, if you’re in the UK, you’ll be able to get your hands on one.
There’s a love of nostalgia in the gaming world that’s been slowly building steam. Our favorite consoles from the past, NES, Sega Genesis, the original Playstation, and others have been making a comeback as of late. Not one to miss out on reminiscing, Sony has embraced the 20th anniversary of the original Playstation in a number of ways. Besides releasing a nostalgic PS4 theme, Sony has released a 20th Anniversary Edition PS4, which has been selling out within minutes anywhere it’s been on sale.
But fear not, UK Playstation 4 fans can snag one online this week. Here’s how:
- First, on Playstation’s Website there’s a page that features hundreds of photos from the history of Playstation. If you know them and study the image, it could pay off.
- After following PlaystationUK and GameDigital on Twitter, you’ll start seeing daily clues along with the hashtag #20YearsofCharacters. The tweets will appear at predetermined times:
- Tuesday 5pm
- Wednesday 2pm
- Thursday 8am
- Friday 12pm
- Once you decode the riddle, click on the character it refers to and you’ll be taken to a hidden GAME website link where, if you’re one of the first 100 people to submit the required form, you’ll be provided instructions on how you can purchase your new, 20th Anniversary PS4.
This is only available in the UK and consoles are limited to one per person, as long as you’re 18 years old.
It’s amazing, isn’t it? A contest where the winners are given the ability to buy a particular version of the console. These aren’t being given away, nor are you entering a drawing. You’re following Twitter at the aforementioned times to try and win a chance to give Sony money. Meanwhile, Microsoft is dropping prices and creating interesting new deals to get their Xbox One to sell.
