Console demo units lead a harsh life. Not only they have to run non final, often glitchy software and a makeshift user interface that has very little to to with the final one, but they also get to run all day for twelve hours a day in the hands of store clerks with little training on how to use and maintain them.
The PS4 demo station you’re going to see here is one of such units, and in the video you can check out below, courtesy of YouTube user Patrick B, it’s indeed having a hard time. First it glitches, remaining stuck in the Knack demo with the players unable to get back to the dashboard. Then the GameStop clerk unceremoniously gives it a hard reset, and it finally boots up after a safe mode check.
