All of GAME and Gamestations's 600 UK stores will feature the Sony PlayStation Vita before its release.
The top 150 stores will also have an Interactive Display Unit. Every store manager has also been sent a Vita unit for them and their staff to carry out demos.
"PlayStation Vita is an amazing piece of technology – but the very best way to make people realise this, is by putting it in their hands," said SCE UK vice president and managing director, Fergal Gara.
"The beauty and clarity of the five inch OLED screen, the ergonomic design with the dual analogue joysticks, the interaction of the rear touch panel, all come emphatically to life.
"With our own Vita Rooms and now, with this opportunity for consumers to sample PS Vita in any of GAME or Gamestation’s 600 specialist retail stores, the excitement can only continue to build," Gara added.
The PlayStation Vita will launch in the UK on February 22, 2012.
