UK Retailer Is Giving Away Free PlayStation 5 Consoles

UK Retailer Is Giving Away Free PlayStation 5 Consoles

‘Cause kindness is timeless.

GAME and PlayStation have banded together to create a real-life Easter egg hunt, and the prizes include four PlayStation 5 consoles.

Getting your mitts on a PS5 is a trial and a half. The short stocks, which are the result of the pandemic's impact on the manufacturing and freightage industries, were sold out as soon as they went live. Scalpers didn't help the situation, employing bots that would systematically soak up the consoles and then selling the units on for ridiculous prices. Thankfully, those people did lose out on a lot of PS5s and Xbox Series Xs as one UK retailer cancelled almost 1,000 orders of the next-gen gizmos due to a "technical error". Of course, some legitimate orders were caught in the crossfire, which isn't ideal. But, it is something.

So, as it is the season for peace on Earth and goodwill to all humankind, GAME and PlayStation have joined forces to give away 102 prizes over the course of two weeks this month. Of these prizes, there are four PlayStation 5s available. The two physical editions and the two digital editions of the console come with Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Demon's Souls, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, a PlayStation Plus 12-Month Membership, and a PlayStation Now 12-Month Membership each. Nothing to be sniffed at, to be sure.

The Easter egg hunt is very simple. Entrants will be looking for the classic triangle, circle, cross and square symbols from the PlayStation controller, and they'll be hidden in a sequence somewhere on GAME's website. They'll only be discoverable for two hours, and there are more than a 1,000 pages on said website. It'll be tough, but not impossible. The retailer will offer clues as to where these symbols will be found on the day, too. Once they've spotted them, players should click the four symbols, and then they will be taken to a prize entry page, where all that is required is to submit their contact information.

The Easter eggs will be hidden between 3.00pm GMT and 5.00pm GMT on the following days: December 7th, December 8th, December 10th, December 15th, and December 17th. If you want to have a go, I'd set reminders to scour their social media for hints before the clock chimes. Good luck!
