The wait for the PlayStation 4 has been especially difficult for Europe. Those of you living in North America were able to snatch the next generation system two weeks ago, meaning that folks in the UK, France, and Germany have been left twiddling their thumbs for almost 14 days. No more, though, as the console arrives tonight across large chunks of the Old World – and we want to know all about your launch experience.

Are you waiting in line outside of your local retailer hoping to snag a stray system, or are you tucked up in front of the television while you wait for a delivery man to knock on your door? We want to know where you’re buying your console from, when you’re planning to hook it up, and what games you're planning to play first. Will you be jumping into Killzone: Shadow Fall to get your first taste of the new unit, or is it Resogun that you’ve got your eyes on?

In addition to information about your launch experience, we also want photos of your day one hauls. Are you snagging one of the Europe-exclusive Mega Bundles? Do you plan to add any additional DualShock 4’s to your spending spree? What about the new PlayStation Camera – is the enhanced lens at the top of your wishlist? Don’t forget to dive into the comments section and keep us informed.

If you’re reading this on your phone, or you are heading to a launch event, we’ve included plenty of reading material to keep your hype levels high while you wait for the clocks to strike midnight. We’ll also be active on Facebook and Twitter, so don’t forget to tap the ‘Like’ and ‘Follow’ buttons on the respective social networks in order to keep in constant contact with us throughout the night. Enjoy the launch.
