Play PS4 Early – Only In Canada

on October 30, 2013 7:45 PM

If you’d like to try out Sony’s next-gen console, then you have as early as November 1st to get your hand fingers around the shiny new PS4 controller…that is, only if you’re in Canada.

Starting on the 1st, Sony Computer Entertainment Canada will be hosting hands-on sessions at brand new “pop-up stores” in the Greater Toronto Area’s Scarborough Town Centre, Calgary’s Southcentre Mall and Montreal’s Complexe Les Ailes. Each location will be equipped with “state of the art” displays and sound, comfortable seating, and dozens of PS4s.

Will they be as smooth as the PS4-themed “Apartment 4” in France? Who knows, but it’d be nice if the U.S. got a little PS4 time like the Xbox One Tour (or maybe I’m just being a greedy American).

Check out the titles and locations below: thanks, PlayStation Blog

Games on hand include:

  • Killzone Shadowfall — The latest entry in Guerrilla Games’ landmark shooter series.
  • Knack — A platformer for all ages with deep game mechanics.
  • Trine 2 — Gorgeous 2D art that fuses old-school design with new tech.
  • Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag — Live the dream of being a pirate on the high seas.

Additionally:

Octodad: Dadliest Catch
Super Motherload
Contrast
Awesomenauts
And many more!
