PS4 and Xbox One will be given to every GameStop manager across the country for free this holiday season.
Reports of this originally surfaced from the GameStop Expo in Las Vegas and was confirmed through their PR team, according to Joystiq.
The general managers of the chains will be receiving both consoles perhaps in an attempt so they can try them out and educate their employees and customers on the games and how the systems run. All in all there are 6,500 stores across the country according to Forbes.
The Playstation 4 will also come with seven games, Killzone: Shadowfall, NBA 2K14, Madden, FIFA 14, Need for Speed: Rivals, Battlefield 4 and Beyond: Two Souls (PS3).
Yesterday reports of Microsoft giving each of their employees an Xbox One surfaced as well.
The free console is the white and silver version, which comes in a nice package of a black Kinect, white controller, a year's worth of Xbox Live and more.
Perhaps the coolest perk on the machine reads on the front "I Made This," according to PCMag.
The story broke on Reddit and NeoGaf forum boards, and many users expressed that they liked the white version of the console over the black one that has been in the bulk of the advertising.
In 2010 Microsoft also gifted their employees with Windows Phone 7's and the Windows 8 phones.
