Due to the pandemic, Joey Chiu can’t queue for a PlayStation 5 right now. However, he’ll still be one of the first to enjoy Sony’s next-gen console, as the Japanese giant sent him a system ahead of this week’s launch. Alongside the device, the company included a commemorative plaque, which reads: “First in line for PS4. First in line for PS4 Pro. Patience is a virtue. This is for you. Play has no limits.”
Joey, as you can imagine, was pretty stoked to receive the package. “Okay, this is 100 per cent the craziest thing to happen,” he wrote on Twitter. “This is insane.” A happy chap, then.
For those of you who weren’t around for the PlayStation 4 launch, Joey was the first person in the world to purchase the console, where he was presented the system by then-PlayStation executives Jack Tretton and Andrew House. During a Geoff Keighley livestream, he celebrated his new acquisition by pantomiming the famous Antonio Banderas GIF – a popular meme at the time.
That has to be such a surreal moment. Kinda reminds me of that livestream series Etika and CND made when waiting one whole month in line to be first to get the Nintendo Switch at launch
I was watching that PS4 stream with my buddy while we were in line to get PS4's of our own! Good times! Seems like just yesterday too!
Pretty cool of Sony to do that for him
I miss Tretton and house
Nice move Sony! That guy must be over the moon with that kind gesture.
That's a nice move by sony
@Dodoo Yeah, I miss those old era of more open and talkative playstation.
Ok, that's a really, really cool story. Well done, Sony. Well done !
Ngl, this is dope. This is better PR than giving the console to some celebrity few have heard of.
Pretty cool, but there are some pretty insane things that happen in the universe, so ya know...
Fair play to the guy, but fully deserved? I dunno about that 😂
I thought they gave him every single Launch game for PS5, not a console?
That's pretty cool. And surprising with the current mood at corporate.
Andrew House and Jack Tretton......I miss that era so much.
I was lucky number 7 in the queue outside my local GAME store when PS2 released. Where's my PS5? 🤔😥
@Paranoimia you get yours for the ps7 lol
