GAME giving players early access to next-gen at "lock-in" events

UK high street outlet GAME is running a special "lock-in" tour of its stores, letting eager customers try out the PS4 and Xbox One in the run-up to the next-gen launches. Over 60 stores will extend their opening hours on select dates in the coming weeks, letting Brits across the fair isle try out the shiny new consoles. (PS4, Xbox One)

Why lock ins. Why not just have the consoles there so people can wander in & have a quick go. I remember just walking in & playing both the 360 & the PS3 when they were about to be released. I'd rather try before I buy. It's ok videos on YouTube etc, I wanna see those graphics with my own eyes.

Hopefully they will get a tv in the window so passers by can see as well hope its not invite only as to give everyone a chance to have a go.

GAME are a bit strange with this.

For the Xbox one all you need to go there was to tell them your name and phone number. But for the PS4 one you need your name, phone number, GAME card number and preorder number.
