Fancy a 20th Anniversary Edition PS4? Here’s how to get one

20th Anniversary Edition PS4

You’ll need to keep a beady eye on Twitter and race to get to the front of the queue

The limited edition 20th Anniversary PS4 console goes on sale today in the UK but acquiring one online is going to take more than the average amount of footwork.

To be in with a chance you’ll need to follow either @GAMEDigital or @PlayStationUK on Twitter and then familiarise yourself with the list of 300 game characters on PlayStation UK’s 20 years of PlayStation Characters website.

Once done, you’ll need to keep an eye on the Twitter accounts above which will be tweeting clues that relate to one of the 300 PlayStation characters on the anniversary site. The tweets in question will be dished out this week at the times given below (GMT)

  • Monday 4 pm
  • Tuesday 5 pm
  • Wednesday 2 pm
  • Thursday 8 am
  • Friday 12 pm

When you’ve solved the tweeted character referencing clues you’ll need to head back to the list on the anniversary site, where clicking on the corresponding character’s picture will take you to a ‘secret website’ where you can fill out a form. If you’re in the first 100 to do so then GAME will email you a link to go ahead and purchase within 24 hours.

If you miss your place in the first 100 PS4 punters, there’s still a slight chance you’ll get your hands on the limited run of anniversary PS4s, as each day one person who filled out the form but failed to be in the first 100 will be selected at random.

GAME will only be offering one console per person, won’t ship outside of the UK and you’ll need to be over 18 to take part. The price for the console is £399.99.
