If there are any PlayStation 4 stock shortages this Christmas, then you’ll know who to blame: GameStop has announced that the managers at all 6,500 of its North American stores will receive a free PlayStation 4 this November. But that’s not all – lucky employees will also scoop an incredible seven games to play on it, as part of an impressive new console launch haul. Free titles will include Killzone: Shadow Fall, Need for Speed: Rivals, and Battlefield 4.

The announcement was made during GameStop’s annual company exposition in Los Angeles, where the organisation also revealed that store bosses will be netting an Xbox One, too. We suppose that it helps if managers have an understanding of the products that they’re flogging, but this sounds like the absolute best educational aid ever. Just in case anyone from the firm’s recruitment department is reading, we have experience in retail and several business qualifications. Just, er, sayin’.
