Look at zis crazy long line of Germans wanting the PS4

PS4 Uber alles

We’ve got less than two weeks to go until we get our hands on the PlayStation 4, but around the world, Sony has been shipping the console out to eager European adopters. While the Italians got a star-studded show in an Assassin’s Creed arena, the Germans did things by the book. With a very, very long line.

Outside a Berlin venue, thousands of ze Chermans queued up to get their hands on the PS4. See for yourself:

Naturally, stock ran out before people, leaving a bunch of Germans miffed about the fact that they spent the night standing outside in the cold for nothing. Still, it looks like the Germans clearly do love their Spielestazion.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.

      hahaha, that back roll at the end was epic

      • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

        He was just showing off. As if the busting through the windscreen wasn’t cool enough

        • Vampyric Squirrel of the Sith

          Not many people can fly kick through a windscreen, roll away and then still walk away like nothing happened

        Like a boss.

      how hectic is that ;D what happens when ninja scroll meets counter strike

      Let me guess… RUSSIA?

    I heard Sony gave the people that didn’t get the consoles a free major PS4 game.

    So how long before opening time (08:00) do you guys reckon I need to stand outside the local Makro to get my hands on the Killzone bundle? From the night before?? I wanted to rock up at 07:30 and hopefully there will be no line…

    • Admiral Chief of Souls

      Which Makro?

      I’d say 06h00 to be safe

      • Stanley Watson

        Thanks :) Makro at Springfield, Durban (though I live in Hillcrest)

        • Admiral Chief of Souls

          Rather be safe and be early. And bring along a baseball bat to keep the rabble away.

          Or better, buy a PC!


          • Stanley Watson

            Thx :) Maybe it must be 06:00. Darn. At least not an all-nighter. If anybody knows of a better or similar deal elsewhere, even online pre-order, that would be cool (my searches are to no avail)

        • That Tall Twit

          Can imagine the Makros @ Springfield & Amanzimtoti will be nuts either way.

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      Imagine that, a bunch of gamers lurking outside a Makro, banging against the glass, screaming for their PS4s…. :D

  • Hammersteyn

    PREORDER! How stupid are people

    • Stanley Watson

      Do you know where I can preorder the Killzone bundle special? Or too late?

    • Jonah Cash

      ………………………… Me……………………………..

      • Hammersteyn

        Oh, sorry bud, Hope fully it’s not too late, here’s a link.

        • Jonah Cash

          I don’t know about this launch…. I think I might stick to my original plan and wait for Watch Dogs to come around!! Hopefully I can get it in a bundle deal… Will suffer through Fifa 14 on PS3 till then…

          • Hammersteyn

            Cool, I just never had a day one console in my life. It’s silly but I just need to do it.

          • Stanley Watson

            It’s not silly.

          • Hammersteyn


          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            Sometimes you just need to. I understand.

          • Rikus

            Me neither… And since this is predicted as the last generations of consoles, this might be our only chance.

  • Martin du preez

    Good to see the Germans still using Blitzkrieg tactics…

    I stood in a line of 30 people. lol
