Wood Veneer Cover For Your PS4

ps4-lifestyle-sd_1024x1024

Wood is the new black. Maybe. We’re not sure how cool wood is to be honest, but we can tell you we’re not hating on Balolo’s Wooden Cover for the Playstation 4. It’s made from a 0.7mm thin layer of actual wood, and you have the option of buying the cover and applying it yourself, or ordering a PS4 from the company with the cover already applied. You have a choice between walnut, bamboo, ‘zebra’, and cherry wood, and the cover only will set you back a hefty €149, or $205. Adding a PS4 along with that brings the price up to €599, or $826, which means there’s a roughly $200 bump for the cover’s installation. Maybe you can figure it out yourself?

PS4 Obliterated With .50 Caliber Sniper Shot, In Super Slow Motion

Like clockwork, as soon as a hotly anticipated device gets released, videos of that same item being destroyed in increasingly creative ways start popping up all over YouTube. The PS4 is obviously no exception, and the below video is a pretty satisfying account of what happens when you put a heavy duty .50 caliber bullet through the console, filmed at 50,000fps.

And no, we’re not making some kind of commentary on the already months-old new-gen console flame war. It’s just gratuitous destruction, because what’s not to like about that?

Sony Wins The Internet

E3 is underway, and unlike editions of the past few years, we’re treated to all new console reveals (if you ignore Nintendo, who’s already had one out for a bit… did you know?) which means people are excited. It’s been more than 7 years after all! And while a lot of folks had been talking about Microsoft’s XBox One and it’s next-gen Kinect and rumble-trigger controllers… Sony just gave them a slap heard round the world with the PS4. How? Two things: 1) the ability to share, sell, rent or lend any game, without restrictions and 2) pricing the console at $399 rather than Microsoft’s $499. There. Case closed. Sony wins.

It might look like we’re exaggerating, but in case you haven’t been keeping track, this matters because the XBox One will officially make it near impossible to do anything with your games once you’ve paid for them, unless the publisher allows it, which is unlikely. Yes, Microsoft is ready to deal a fatal blow to an entire industry built around renting games and reselling used ones. Worse still, the console has to check in to a central server every 24 hours or even single player games stop working! You’re not online? You’re a soldier stationed in the middle of nowhere? Tough luck, no XBox One for you, son. Rumble triggers, next-gen Kinect, super ultra TV central? That won’t matter to a lot of people who’ll be more than happy to flock to Sony for what is likely to be just as good a gaming machine for $100 less, and 100% more freedom. Good job, Sony.

Incidentally, you should watch the instructional video below. It’s Sony’s step-by-step on how to share a game when you have a PS4.
