Welcome to Singapore, PlayStation 4

Early birds

iPads and smartphones were out in full force, and we saw some gamers performing some furious screen tapping and reading while they waited in line.

Bookworms

Oh hey, someone went analog and brought a comic book to read! A rare sight, if you ask us.

Baggage claim

Wait, is that a luggage? Dude, how many PlayStation 4s did you pre-order?

Release us!

That’s it. Get us a crowbar. We shall free these PlayStation 4s from their shackles and unleash them upon the world!

More after the break...

All hail the PlayStation 4 king

Meet Aaron Tan, and bow before him. This avid gamer, who owns the first, second, and third-gen PlayStation, was here since 5am. Nine hours later, he just can’t wipe the grin off his face. Getting the PlayStation 4 is just the tip of the iceberg. He's also going home with a free PS Vita TV and 10-year PlayStation Plus membership for his patience.

Update on 19th Decwe were notified by Sony Computer Entertainment that the 10-year PlayStation Plus membership was not offered to the first two pre-order buyers in the queue as stated in an earlier story. Instead, the first 30 pre-order collections (including the first and second buyer) gets a 1-year PlayStation Plus membership worth S$43.90

And the runner-up is..

Jayraj Singh, who reached the collection point half an hour later after Aaron Tan. We don’t know if he’s trying to do a Lion King here, holding the PS4 up high, but we think he deserves to do whatever he wants for being the second person in line. He also walked away with a free PS Vita TV and 10-year PlayStation Plus membership.

The absolute glee of the early collectors

More rewards for the early birds. As the queue continued moving, the next 30 in line got a free PS Vita TV, followed by the next 30 who received a 10-year PlayStation Plus membership.

Experience the PlayStation 4

What? You’re still not sure if you should get the PS4? While some of us are waiting for the right games, others are hinting for this as a Christmas present. Either way, PlayStation 4 demo units and games are available within the pop-up store, baiting you to dip into that Christmas bonus and bring the console home.

Greatness awaits

Man, we want that PlayStation 4. Somebody, anybody, give us S$639 so that we can buy one for the family this Christmas. Pretty please?
