The PlayStation 4 is set to launch in North America in less than a month but in the event you simply can't wait that long, Sony has you covered. As of this week, the company is rolling out PS4 demo kiosks to stores nationwide so you can try the new console before you buy.
In a blog post on the matter, Sony said the initial wave of PS4 demo units will appear in select Sony Stores. If you don't live near a Sony Store, fret not, as thousands more will be added to various retail locations including Best Buy, GameStop, Target and Walmart in the coming weeks.
If you're interested in finding a demo kiosk near you, simply visit the Experience PlayStation website and enter your Zip code (and cross your fingers). The system appears to be a bit glitchy at the moment as it showed my nearest location was a garage door company but we are hearing that Sony is working on a fix as we speak.
Once you find a kiosk, you'll be able to sample upcoming games like Knack, Octodad: Dadliest Catch, FIFA 14, Contrast, Super Motherload and Pinball Arcade. It's not the best lineup of games but at the same time, Sony has to be careful not to put out games with a Mature rating like Call of Duty: Ghosts or Killzone: Shadow Fall. Naturally, the new DualShock 4 controller will also be on display at each kiosk.
