Playstation 4 User Gets His Console Early

HardwarePal : We have a lucky user who got his hands on Sony’s Playstation 4. He goes by the name “Longandworthit” on Instagram. He got himself a full mega bundle of the PS4 which includes a Dual shock 4, a PS camera, the game Killzone: Shadow Fall and of course the console itself. (Killzone: Shadow Fall, PlayStation, PS4, Sony)

Update 1.Longandworthit is son of Guy W. Longworth - Senior Vice President of PlayStation Brand Marketing.

2.Longandworthit's instagram account has been deleted.

You lucky **** lol, just to think you are playing Shadow fall right now, i´m envy congrats man
Abriael  +   283d ago
Probably fake. He removed the picture from instagram and said that the UI video he promised won't come, stating that it's because of a "clause of his father's contract".

That smells like excuse and empty box.

i got an OUYA early, anyone interested? :D

this article seems cheesy to me, let's see what comes up.
SonyNGP  +   283d ago
Fun fact: His father is Guy Longworth. Senior Vice President of the SCEA marketing team.
sigfredod  +   283d ago

Now back to you Microsoft...

I'm going to see if I can pick my PS4 up this Wednesday. (I live 30 minutes away from the amazon warehouse where the PS4s are at)
FamilyGuy  +   283d ago
Yeah this is bs, got it early and he stay quiet on the info? Don't think so, this article is pretty much empty of any real information.
Dohv  +   283d ago
Yeah I agree its fake. You can get boxes if you work at GameStop and game stores. And anyone can buy Killzone Shadow Fall,the Dualshock 4,and PS Camera now.
sentury111  +   283d ago
If he did he would get his console banned. Don't want any negative PR for Sony.
sentury111  +   282d ago
Funny I get disagrees about a ban if he posts footage then an update comes stating he won't post footage and his instagram is closed.

Coincidence?
PSX04  +   283d ago
There is nothing on instegram about this topic I think it's just a fake
pharmd  +   283d ago
User? like he's a ps4 druggie lol
Gamer1982  +   283d ago
Loving the fact that you dont get banned if you connect before launch like on xbox..
n4rc  +   282d ago
easy to say that when nobody has done so..

the only way they arent banning early users is if they cant connect to begin with. its a word game..
sentury111  +   282d ago
Only person banned posted footage!

Other user were not.

Have a PS user post footage and see how far it takes them.
RussellGorall  +   282d ago
He is the spoiled brat of some exec that works for Sony.
lnvisibleMan  +   283d ago
Whether he likes it or not there going to be a lot of people crashing at his house tonight.
Bimkoblerutso  +   283d ago
Or perhaps crashing into his house...with a truck to steal it.

Actually he's a sunuva bigwig in Sony's marketing department lol
4lc4pon3  +   283d ago
lucky SOB
skoorydook  +   283d ago
Wonder if they just randomly sent one early on purpose
nominal266  +   283d ago
They did. He has family ties to Sony, so this was a sort of underground way of promoting the console I suppose. Which is rather sad. The video that was posted was very childish and immature. It was supposed to be a fictional character attitude or something, but the video is just too silly and ridiculous. Not the kind of person that I would hope to see on the PSN \

EDIT: My apologies, a different person made the video I speak of, that was the weird guy.

I hate him. He such a Sony fanboy. You pic resolution looks sub 720p. I thought everything Sony was 1080p 60fps. Sorry, couldn't help myself.

If you won a PS4 from taco bell I think you get it on Tuesday which is two days away!
Soldierone  +   283d ago
13 codes (not all purchases by me) and not a single win. Did like 20 for the Vita one, not a single win. Think I'm done trying that lol
Hicken  +   283d ago
At least you got codes. Every time I went, they were out of the damn boxes.
Aleithian  +   283d ago
Same here. Oh well. Guess I'll have to wait to the PS4 is back in stock...
speedforce131  +   283d ago
I've had about 4 boxes, none of those were wins. I'm starting to think nobody won cause I haven't heard of ANYBODY who said they won one and there was supposed to be 1 winner every 15min.

Shouldn't there be 48 wins per day and the promotion was running for a good month or two now? We should have heard from SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE that they won.
Soldierone  +   282d ago
Was thinking the same thing. With the Vita, people were actually reporting wins daily all over forums. Haven't heard a single person celebrate with this one.

n4rc  +   282d ago
and the kid probably got it taken away and grounded for trying to become a lil internet celeb... lol
zpoc  +   283d ago
i love that the article doesn't even link to the dude's instagram, and instead wastes time speculating that sony will 'congradulate' him on twitter. gaming journalism at it's finest.
I'm actually not jealous of this guy at all. Hmmmm... I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that I have a life outside of gaming...hmmm....
Hicken  +   283d ago
The way you keep whining, that's hard to believe.
Sirlancealot  +   283d ago
I feel sorry for you guys because once the 15th comes around ya don't stand a chance against me in this killzone shadowfall.
Relientk77  +   283d ago
Yea I'm jealous, I want my PS4
JessiePinkmanYo  +   283d ago
Watching all these early release consoles being reported on is like watching other kids in Willy Wonka getting golden tickets. Come the 15th, and 22nd, all of us that preordered will get ours! Those who didn't well...Oompah oompah oompadee do, looks like a raping from eBay to you!
