PlayStation Is Having a PS4 Pro Midnight Launch Event at Sony Square in New York City

on November 3, 2016 2:32 PM

With food, games and prices, Sony will join fans to celebrate the release of the PlayStation 4 Pro during a midnight launch event in New York City on November 9.

Announced via the PlayStation Blog, beginning at 7 p.m. ET, gamers can start lining up to get their hands on the new console. The first 200 people in line can get the Pro once midnight hits.

While everyone waits, Sony will award a few lucky gamers exclusive opportunities, including an all-expenses-paid trip to the PlayStation Experience 2016 in Anaheim, California on December 3 and 4. Each attendee will automatically be entered for a chance to win. Other giveaways include PlayStation VR and a limited edition 20th Anniversary PS4.

Sony Pictures Television will also be on-scene, and will invite attendees to play one of two escape game puzzles based on two NBC hit series: The Blacklist and Timeless.

Will you be attending? Sony invites you to “come dressed as your favorite PlayStation character or impress us with your PlayStation trivia knowledge and you just might just walk away a winner.” Be prepared to possibly show up on PlayStation’s Instagram and SnapChat — or even for a soundbyte of your beautiful voice to appear on the next PlayStation Blogcast.

Also note all purchases at the Sony Square NYC event must be credit card-only.

Sony recently listed a bunch of games that will be optimized for the PS4 Pro launch.
