PS4 Launch: Midnight Event in NYC, 444 PS4s on Sale

Look for this sign and line up behind it. Remember: Only credit cards will be accepted, don’t bring cash.

Hey PlayStation fans. If you were unable to preorder a PS4 system, we are happy to announce that we are making 444 additional units available for sale at The Standard, High Line hotel in New York City (848 Washington St) at midnight on November 15th. Lines will start immediately at Washington and Little West 12th, so don’t wait. Only credit cards will be accepted — don’t bring cash!

To celebrate the launch of PS4 in North America, we will be holding a special midnight launch event at The Standard, High Line. Activities will include an arcade where fans can play PS4 games on up to 30 kiosks. Additionally, the entire north side and east sides of the hotel will transform into a gigantic interactive lighting installation. Starting Thursday, images depicting the creative process of developing video games will be projected on the entire north side of the 18-story building.

There will also be surprise ad-hoc PS4 games popping up all around The Standard projected on walls and other non-traditional locations. Fans will have the opportunity to meet and possibly play with industry luminaries. Who? We’re not saying just yet!

Additionally, a large art installation in the central plaza will showcase interactive content and real-time art jams. All activities will culminate with the live Spike TV broadcast at 11:00pm Eastern Time and the sale of the first PS4 at midnight. Come on down and check out the festivities, or tune in to the PS4 ALL Access: Greatness Awaits special on Spike. November 15th is almost here — let the gaming begin!

  • went is the psvita playstation plus free games for this month is going to be on the psstore am waiting to play some

  • PlayStation twitter account says come RIGHT NOW and try games?
    is that true can we come today? or only tomorrow?
    and one more thing, I’m totally broke but I don’t want miss this I want celebrate PS4 lunch :”( so can I attend even if I’m not going to buy PS4 right away? and can I cover this event for my website?

  • I’m assuming the answer is no, but can we pick up a wristband, leave the area and return close to midnight?

  • and when do you start handing out the wristbands? thanks again.

  • will there tickets given out u guys want people to wait in the cold for 24-48 hours

  • Wow. Sony will do anything to keep the fans happy. One more reason that I stick with the Playstation Nation! Greatness does indeed Await! Woot!

  • Man i wish that gaming events could extend further than what they are offered at in select cities. PS4 day 1 shipping i’m out!!!!!!!!!!!

  • So there is no Age restriction for buying the ps4 at The Standard, High-line hotel? I can purchase it with a debit card at the event?

  • Did my prorder got lucky at fredmeyer when all the pre orders were all gone they did ten tickets I was #8 ONE DAY TO GO tomorrow at midnight PEACE TO ALL

  • Is it alright if we went and just try the games? Sry I’m afraid I can’t buy one right now.

  • Are there any age restrictions on who can come in and play the games? Also is the room open all night to come in and play?

  • How early will you start wristbanding people? Thanks!

  • I will be getting mine tomorrow night.

  • zOMG. I must attend this. I’m at The Standard all the time, usually at Le Bain.

    Can we come just to party? What time does it start? I’ve already preordered, so I wouldn’t want to take a unit that could go to someone else.

  • Are you maxed out yet or are there still wristbands left?

  • @Jennifer Clark will there be playstation home on the PS4?

  • exciting … PS4 is out shipping now. Hope they deliver tomorrow :P

  • Silly question, but It’s worth asking and I’m sure there have been other weird questions out there before me… If I pre ordered my PS4 at my current Gamestop (which is in NJ), would they have it available at the High Line, or does it have to be specifically for new orders at the High Line? Cause I wanted to join in the event so I wouldn’t have to miss all the fun at that place. Either way, this is THE best launch event for the new console and I can’t wait to see how this turns out.

  • So what about those reported issues about video output almost everyone is having? Is it even worth it, picking up a ps4 now? Disappointing.

  • Am i allowed to use my mom’s credit card? Unfortunetly she can’t come with me and i don’t have my own credit card, PLEASE reply?

  • What time will the games be playable until? Will that room be open all the way up until the launch event?

  • Hi. Most stupid think on PS4 is, that PS4 don’t support a BluRay 3D!! This is unbelievable… I live in England so it’s good idea to spy on America’s PS4 owners before I get mine. Who know, I may even change my mind about next – ouch sorry…- “next” gen console, I may get this another One.

  • I am not going to get into the whole “Console War” debate on which next-gen is better, for me personally Im a graphics guy. The more powerful the graphics the better, from what I’ve read about the specs of both systems and from video reviews of games on both consoles, PS4 is my pick. Im sure X-Bone will do just fine; I just don’t need all the extra “All in One” bells and whistles they are offering. I want a true gaming machine that focuses on what matters and whats important, and thats video games. PS4 has everything a gamer could want. Never been a Halo guy so the X-Bone exclusives don’t make me regret my choice. PS4 has more announced exclusives and that doesnt even include any God of War or Resistance titles. Regardless it’s an exciting time to be a gamer. We have so many options for gaming, whether we are on a console, Smartphone/tablet, handheld, or a PC we have enough options to keep us busy 24/7. We have come a long way since the 8-Bit NES days (which I still love). Good luck to all the PS4’ers out there who plan on picking up their preorders tonight at midnight (I’ll be there). The many sleepless nights r finally over! To the X-Bone diehard fans, enjoy your extra week of waiting! Let the Next-Gen Era Begin!
