Amazingly, i've done the last couple of days comp at work and the pages load up super fast.
On Wednesday, i got the clue, got on the page, found the answer within seconds, but I got the false link, which seriously hacked me off. Had to get the real link from here!

Yesterday, though, again I was super quick at getting the pages loaded and just lucked into it, i think - really didnt think I'd be one of the 100, but checked my emails this morning and here it was:

Hi

I know, it does seem an awfully complicated way to have a chance of getting one. However I am off work at the moment so I have some time, so will give it a try. Only thing is I might be on Jury Duty next week! have to hope I'm not called oO

But no I won't. I really wanted one, but the shop '94 was a crock of **** and made me quite angry in the end. I don't think it's right to have to go to so much effort, to buy it at such a premium, when people in London got to buy it for £19.94. I don't like my childhood memories being played on like this, it's dirty and I don't like the way they favour people in London over everybody else.

The London shop only had 94 consoles and people were queuing up waiting for it to open, the location of the shop really didn't matter, wherever it was it would have had a huge que and zero chance of getting one

That's crap. If the shop was in your street, for example, I think you would have stood a much better chance than everyone else in the rest of the country.

It's not feasible for Sony to sell loads of PS4 at £20 all over the country, so they only sold a handful. And they chose London, which always happens - due to it being the capital.

If you think about it MSK, wherever they did it, people would complain, Sony can't win.

They aren't making very many of these limited edition PS4's. I wager they could have afforded to sell them all at £19.94 and made lots more people happy and been legends. But they chose to suck people in, the jack up the price like a bad drug dealer.

Limited edition items are always sold at a premium though, it makes sense. Although I can see why you're upset, as you wanted one so much. :(

Still hope you get one, somehow. :)

If limited edition is always sold at a premium, why sell any for £19.94? It's just going to **** off most of the population.

There's one listed for $20,000 in the US. I could never bring myself to sell one though, so it wouldn't be a good investment. I'd want to play it.

lol. I can tell you're annoyed with Sony. :D

But you need to see it more of a competition, instead of feeling angry, upset or (possibly) jealous of those lucky 94. Sony did it for the publicity, and it's worked. Don't you think? ;)

Of course I am jealous. I think that goes without saying!

All I've seen is endless negative publicity though. Believe me, people were excited enough about there being a limited PSX edition without all the £19.94 London only stuff.

I dunno, I'm skeptical.
Many people just bid up to waste the sellers time; check out ebay uk.
So many people are bidding on them, but the auctions are reaching higher than the buy it now price of the others.

I think the £20 PS4 definitely added to the 'hype'. More articles were written as a result, but yes it was already 'big news' anyway.

For a "PSX" anniversary edition, the case needs to be white & the release scheduled for December 2028.

Disagree intensely. And even if that were true, which I don't agree with, if they had done the same thing online, it would have got an equal amount of publicity. They stated people who couldn't make it to London would get the same opportunity and it simply isn't true.

Yeah, some will waste the sellers time. But I think at least one serious buyer will pay a high price for one. A rich PS4 fanboy. oOX)

How many UK towns & cities need to open a "pop-up shop" for two days so that enough people have ample chance to buy one of 94 consoles at £19.94?
