GAME and gamestation have revealed their launch night plans for the PlayStation Vita. A number of stores will be opening at midnight Tuesday February 21, the eve of the Vita's release in the UK.

GAME on Oxford Street, London, will be giving away a year's supply of Vita games for the first person in the queue on the night, while other attendees will be able to meet and greet members of the WipEout 2048 development team, take home GAME PSN vouchers and get tickets to the after party taking place the PlayStation Vita Rooms.

If you're not planning to head out on launch night to pick up a Vita and prefer to get things delivered to you, a Vita can be yours for as little as £210 with a free 8GB memory card.

Oh, right didn't see that bit... Yeah you would have to be a bit mad to queue for that long :)

They would have to be a bit mad to queue now for an event on Tuesday night. This isn't an Apple event ;)

If they did this in the US Id almost be expecting some kind of fight to happen. Would be nice though depending how the free games break down.

Hmm.... I passed Oxford street on the way home a couple hours ago and didn't see large queue, but I guess there is really a point of coming that early unless you know you're first.

Well, it's London so I don't care.

As they haven't yet announced the in-store bundles I don't even know what I'll be getting and how much it will cost. A more cynical person might suggest that it has something to do with them worrying about people going elsewhere to buy.

I bet the winner will have to wait. I've seen competitions like this before where someone wins a year's supply of Marmite and it turns out to be one jar for 3 months because it's based on the serving suggestion!

What I'm more curious about is what time the first person in the queue will actually show up. I know we've discussed this before, but I just cannot think of a good reason for sitting outside a shop for hours and hours to buy something I could get in the morning.

Is that 12 games, 52 games, or 366 games? And, more importantly, will they be able to stock the games for the winner, or will the winner have to wait like all the wannabe Tekken 3D players?

If I complete the games they give me in less than a year, do I get my time back?
