At these pre-launch events, customers who pre-ordered a PlayStation 4 will receive triple trade-in bonus credit for all hardware. Yeah, that’s a 90% increase. Nice. However, this offer is only able to be applied to their PlayStation 4 purchase, and credit from software trade-ins will remain the same as always.

Some branches of GameStop will have PlayStation 4 units available for demos. Customers can also purchase PS4 accessories and some games at these events, including DualShock 4 controllers.

Many GameStop stores will also stay open until midnight on the night of November 14 and will begin the sale of PlayStation 4 consoles at 12:01am. As GameStop has sold out of the PlayStation 4, this, of course, only applies to those who have already pre-ordered a console.

Similar events should be occurring the following weekend in preparation for the Xbox One release on November 22.
