Just a few days ago we learned that EB Games stores in Canada started to sell DualShock 4 controllers and PlayStation cameras to their customers, followed a couple days later by Gamestop in some states of the US (we’ve been told just today that north eastern states will have them available this coming week).
But is it just controllers and cameras? Looks like Canada is it again: twitter users Roy Alabado, Josh Lachapelle and One Way Gaming just tweeted pictures of newly purchased DualShock 4 controllers and Cameras, in the company of something a lot more interesting: three true blue Knack retail cases.
While we don’t know if Canadian stores are already selling games en masse, or it’s just a number of isolated sales, the cases definitely seem genuine.
Not only the plastic case itself fully looks like the real thing, but the jacket is realistic and bears no “promotional” label like preorder mock-ups do. The clincher that makes me believe they’re genuine is the bilingual “Only on/Seulment sur PlayStation 4” at the top of the jacket, which is a peculiar characteristic of games sold in Canada.
No picture of the cover art I could find online (and I looked for a while) has that labeling, and I really can’t imagine someone creating a fake being so attentive to details to purposely add such a small element that few would even notice. Of course three fakes of the same game appearing at the same time from different sources is also very unlikely.
So, if you live in Canada and want to hold your first PS4 game in your shivering hands, you may want to try giving your local store a call.
