To begin with, a few caveats. I don't know if this guy was the first person in Australia to buy a PlayStation 4. Actually, I know he wasn't. Plenty of people imported the console from the US. Also, they always just sort of say the person at the most 'official' launch is the first one when we really have no idea. Maybe the store manager down the street has a watch that runs fast? We just don't know.
With that caveat, here is the person who most people would say is 'officially' the first person to buy a PlayStation 4 from a store in Australia. He attended the controversial Dick Smith launch and won a free PS4 and a trip to E3. The launch party itself wasn't quite the disaster I thought it would be, but more on that later.
The reason why I am posting this, and the reason why it is interesting is this: the man who was the first Australian to buy a PlayStation 4 looks like Louis Theroux. A lot. To the point where, when I posted the above image on my Facebook last night, with the Louis Theroux joke, entirely too many people thought I was being serious.
Anyway, congratulations Louis. Here's hoping you have many Weird Weekends with the PlayStation 4. I am a big fan of your work.
