Win A Super Rare 20th Anniversary PlayStation 4 Games Console

By Gizmodo UK on at

It's the season of goodwill, giving, and walloping family members at FIFA, so we thought a little Giz UK Christmas competition was in order. And it's a big 'un, too: we've managed to convince PlayStation to give us three (count 'em: THREE) of those rare-as-hen's-teeth 20th anniversary PS4 consoles that look like PS1s we've been banging on about. And we're not even allowed to keep them – the cheek!

We ARE allowed to give them to you, though, as long as you're based in the UK. We've decided to give out one console apiece to a site commenter, a Twitter follower and a Facebook liker to say thanks for another great year of Giz UK. But with the just-12,300-run of these £399 games machines being scalped for silly money on eBay, we want them to go to suitably good homes.

So if you'd like one in your house, you'll need to prove your passion for PlayStation to us. None of this waft-a-DualShock-at-us cobblers – we want pedigree: session stories, gaming setup snaps, regrettable tattoos, relationships lost over joypads and other barely held memories and recollections from your PlayStation heyday, whether it was yesterday or two decades ago. The three that tickle our funny/nostalgia bones the most, win.

We'll take a break from our post-Christmas Baileys drip to pick a winner this coming Saturday and winners will then need to send us their addresses and phone numbers for the courier. The lucky three will then get their shiny new-old plaything in the week commencing January 5th.

So, those three ways to enter again…
