I saw the Xbox unboxing vid with Major Nelson a while back but reading this made me think that I hadn't seen a PS4 unboxing.

So I found one on You Tube.

That thing is huge!!

But at least the PS4 box is quite small.

I'm going to need a police escort to get that box out of a busy meadowhall on Friday afternoon. I wish Game stayed open from midnight till all day Friday so I could collect at 7am before work.

That's a big ass box.

The local Game is right in the middle of our town centre and its a place you wouldn't want to be walking around flashing something like that through the day, never mind 12 at night.

I'm a little surprised the box isn't green though.

Size wise it reminds me of the original (phat) PS3 box. Guess it was always going to be big since it houses the kinect set up too and the XBone isn't a small console to start with...

Still I might be in the minority but I like Xbone's boxy design, then again I like the PS4s more minimalist style too, they both attractive in their own way and I find either more appealing than the rounded box style of the wii u.

Are you sure they aren't staying open all day, my local game (liverpool city centre) usually always stay open for 24 hours (9pm til 9pm) when something huge launches, i can't see why they wouldn't do it for stores every where

I recall getting my 360 at the midnight launch in the Glasgow city centre Game.

It was about 12:50 when I was walking out the shop with my friend carry a huge Game bag, drunk people everywhere.

"Hey, he must have a 360!" was the first thing I heard from a group of guys walking by.

"You, is that a 360 in there?!?" from another group.

"TAXI!!!!!" I shouted at a passing black cab

Taken from the Game website, ill give them a ring to see what my local Game are doing.
For Midnight Launches, stores generally open their doors around 11.45pm some may open earlier to help you with your trade-ins. Tills will be open from midnight. Stores will generally close around an hour later. Depending on customer demand, your local manager may choose to close earlier or stay open longer. For early morning openings, stores usually open at 8:30am some may open earlier.

All stores open at the discretion of your local manager. This list shows the latest information we have on stores that are taking part in the midnight launch, however there may be changes. To be sure that your store is opening, please check with your local branch before going out on the night as they will have the latest information

I'm not planning on getting one until next year. Plenty of time to buy a house with a larger front door.
