    Eager gamers itching to snap up their PlayStation 4 consoles will have to wait until Friday to play -- but 24 hours before that, they'll have a shot to win.

    Sony is scheduling a giveaway at 6 p.m. on Thursday at the Game Stop at 830 Market Street in San Francisco, according to the PlayStation Blog.

    Game demos as well as prizes including t-shirts "and more" -- and presumably some PS4 consoles -- will be just handed away free of charge, the blog reported.
