We know that lots of you want to get your hands on the PlayStation 4 20th Anniversary Edition Console and from Monday 15th December until Friday 19th you might just get that chance!
Join us every day for one week as we team up with GAME to give you the chance to purchase this limited edition console for £399.99!

How to take part:
1. Follow @PlayStationUK or @GAMEDigital on Twitter!

 

2. From Monday 15th at 11am you can head to [LINK REMOVED-COMPETITION NOW CLOSED] and take a look at our fantastic image containing over 300 characters from PlayStation history. Study the image well and make sure you know your PlayStation characters!

 

3. At an allocated time each day @PlayStationUK and @GAMEDigital will tweet a clue using the hashtag #20YearsOfCharacters.

4. Solve the clue, find the character it corresponds to, zoom in so the blue cross appears and click it, if you are correct you will be given a link which will take you to a secret website by GAME. *Please note that the page will need to be refreshed at the given time before the daily link will be updated.

5. Once on the page please fill out the form with the details required. If you are in the first 100 people to submit the form you will receive an email from GAME within 24 hours of the link going live, giving you all the details you'll need to purchase your PlayStation 4 20th Anniversary Edition Console. Don't worry if you aren't in the first 100, every person who completes the form on the page before it closes will be entered into a daily prize draw and one person will be chosen at random to win a PlayStation 4 20th Anniversary Edition Console.

The consoles will be available on a first come first served basis with GAME via the application page, they will not be available from GAME.co.uk. Don't worry if you miss it, there will be a new allocation of stock every day from Monday until Friday next week giving you five separate chances to pick-up the PlayStation 4 20th Anniversary Edition Console.

Want to know when we will be tweeting? Take a look below and get ready (all times in GMT)-  

Monday 4pm
Tuesday 5pm
Wednesday 2pm
Thursday 8am
Friday 12pm


Please note that GAME will not be able to ship the PlayStation 4 20th Anniversary Edition Console outside of the UK. If you are outside of the UK please check with your local PlayStation channels for more information about your opportunity to own the PlayStation 4 20th Anniversary Edition. The console is limited to one purchase per person.


Update 18/12/2014

 

We launched #20YearsofCharacters on [LINK REMOVED-COMPETITION NOW CLOSED] with the intention of giving our true fans the best opportunity of purchasing the PS4 20th Anniversary Edition console.

Following feedback from the PlayStation UK community we would like to remind everybody that the daily link for this activity won't be live until seconds before the clue is announced on twitter.com/PlayStationUK


Unfortunately we are now aware of some users attempting to run programmes to reveal the URL early and give themselves an unfair advantage. Users we identify as using these tactics will be disqualified from the process and will continue to be. Since reports of this behaviour surfaced we have been adding additional encryptions and will continue to do so in advance of the final clue tomorrow.

Good luck to whoever enters.

JUST SELL THEM!!!
People have jobs and can't have the luxury of sitting all day on twitter.
You have SO made this a promotion aimed at the unemployed or those who can pick or choose hours of work.
This has been turned from a celebration into a mockery of those who opened a ps1 in 1994, who now have families and have to provide.
Your p.r department have a lot to answer for.

At work seven days a week. I'm pretty positive these puzzles/pictures/websites won't be mobile friendly. Guess you gotta be a daytime loiterer to win.

Its a great idea. 

 

It means you wont have groups of ghetto thugs and random opportunistic passes-by calling their 50yrld moms, 8 cousins and whole family who know absolutely nothing about Playstation, getting their grubby hands on these anniversary models…. like they did with the farce that was the PS event in London on wednesday.

 

Also we wont need to contend with airhead marketing graduates giving away the whole allocation of consoles on the first day.

 

….I commend this approach, and thank you Sony for devising a proper method which rewards true playstation gamers and not Daily Mail reading career women or Gangster thugs who might stab you if you look at them wrong.

 

(yes i was one of the gamers who went to claim a £20 PS4, only to be appalled by the types of people who actually them got all)

Another stupid idea from Playstation UK, I though that after '94 shop it cant go any worse. There was scalpers festival, I went 100 miles to get it. I was 15th in the queue, few guys came, I was punched and literaly kicked out from the party, lost my phone in the process. Hate PlaystationUK, thinkin about just giving up on this whole biglove for PS. So instead of great party and joy I am 400 pounds loss with a ugly looking lip cut. And how was your ps anniversary? Just think guys, about what you doing because I dont think it was for the players, I feel more like a looser right now

Interesting idea.  Just a note:

 

In the box with the times, it says "Wednesday 2pm".

 

In the terms and conditions it says "on 17 December 2014: at 16:00 (GMT);".

 

Can you clarify which time is the correct one?

being a "gangster Thug" doesn't mean you haven't been a PlayStation fan since young you might have only played grand theft auto and sports games but that's still PlayStation non the less. I think you've had your fair share of experiences as a victim and now lean on PlayStation to offer you support (u need a different forum) - your a looser focus on your own game instead of assessing the legitimacy of others. Finally not every one that visually intimidates you will stab you. #ThugsGrewUpOnPSToo

I think this is a fantastic way to award true fans of gaming. Better than someone who is looking for a quick buck trying to get one.

 

Hoping I can be one of the first 100 on one of the days. Fingers crossed :D

So a true fan is defined as someone who won't be at work at 4pm on Monday and who has £399 going spare nine days before Christmas?

 

Trying to find a method to beat scalpers is all well and good but this is just OTT

Incredible, you'd all be here complaining like hell if they went on general sale and sold out in minutes to profiteers just before the internet crashed.

This is admittedly a little convoluted but it's a special item and deserves a special process, even if it is partly driven by a need to circumvent the greedy masses.

Embrace the event and you never know, maybe you'll get a stroke of luck.....then complain about the delivery time or something....but I'm sure you'll manage to crack a smile for just a second or two.

You don't need to spend "all day" doing anything as you've been given very specific times and can get notifications from Twitter.

You seem to be under the impression scalpers won't be prepared to hover around Twitter and/or play the 'Where's Waldo?" type game?

 

"Oh, I want to sell a spec ed PS4 for mucho profit on eBay but the Twitter clue and find the character game has completely put me off!", said no scalper ever
