Heaven in a shop fitting

After an eternity of build-up, the PlayStation 4 is now approaching faster than a bullet train. In less than a month, you’ll be able to wrap your eager fingers around the DualShock 4 and settle down for some serious next generation gaming. If you need some sustenance to get you over the finish line, though, Sony has announced that it’s started setting up demo kiosks in retailers around North America.

The initial wave of pods should be available in select Sony Stores now, but will be rolled out in GameStop, Best Buy, Target, and Walmart over the coming weeks. Not sure where to find one? The platform holder’s set up this handy shop locator to help you out. Don’t feel too disheartened if there’s not a station in your area just yet, because, as mentioned, the roster of outlets with playable booths will expand significantly in the run up to launch.

Assuming that you can find a kiosk, you’ll be able to get hands-on time with Knack, Octodad: Dadliest Catch, FIFA 14, Contrast, Super Motherload, and the Pinball Arcade. Alright, it would be nicer if the likes of Killzone: Shadow Fall and DriveClub were playable too, but as an appetiser before release, we’re sure that the selected titles will get your juices flowing. Plus, look at the stand itself – it’s a thing of beauty.
