Sony Computer Entertainment Japan is (slowly) getting the PlayStation 3 into the consumer eye. Last week, the company put the PS3 on display at an event in Akihabara, Tokyo's electronics capital. This week marks the start of retail demo kiosks which will eventually appear in 1000 shops throughout Japan.
But the PS3 will be best represented at Sony's own store. Set for display at the Sony store in Tokyo's Ginza district is a deluxe version of the PlayStation TV demo units that will appear at retailers. The display will house four separate systems and monitors, allowing the public to try out Devil May Cry 4, Power Smash 3, Gran Turismo HD and Ridge Racer 7, as well as view 30 promotional video clips.
