Pre-pay for your next-gen console at GAME and you'll get a fast-track ticket for launch night that will let you skip the standard queue.

 

Customers who pay off their console before launch day will be allowed to enter a "fast lane" to quickly exchange their ticket for their shiny new game gubbins and avoid a wait in the cold.

GAME has begun emailing customers with details of the offer, as spotted by NeoGAFand XboxOneForums.

You'll be able to pre-pay for your Xbox One on the 20th and 21st November to quickly pick it up on the night of 22nd November.

PlayStation 4 customers can do the same on 27th and 28th November ahead of Sony's big launch.

Alternatively, you can place the value of your pre-order onto a GAME gift card from 10th - 19th November for a quick redemption on launch night.

GAME is also suggesting you bring along any games or accessories you want to trade in when you pre-pay. Trading in three or more items will net an extra 20 per cent value which can be used against your console payment.

I was just searching earlier for details on picking up the console, I have some stuff I wanted to trade in to go towards the XB1 and was planning on doing this the week before so this just gives me a specific day to do it :)

The staff in the game stores in Scotland I've visited have terrible gaming knowledge.

To be honest as long as they now how to work the machine to let me pay... who cares!

 

I'm using them because I wanted to be able to pick up the console rather than rely upon a delivery service.
