UK Retailer GAME has confirmed that its shops will be open at midnight for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release.

This was confirmed via Twitter and their official website.

Looking at the details on the GAME website, it seems to suggest that almost every store will be open for this event. You can find out whether or not your GAME store is open by heading here.

If you’ve pre-ordered a PS4 or Xbox One with GAME, you now have the opportunity to pick them up at the midnight launch.

GAME is also putting forward a new ‘Get Gaming Quicker’ scheme. This will allow customers to pre-order either console, pay in advance or trade-in towards it. Trading in three or more titles will offer an additional 20% towards your purchase.

People who do the above will be part of GAME’s ‘fast lanes’ at the Xbox One and PS4 midnight launches and the following day. GAME reckon that it will make the selling process “ten times faster” for customers.

The Xbox One will launch in the UK on the 22nd November whilst the PlayStation 4 is scheduled for release on the 29th November.
