Back in 1979, I bought myself a TI-99/4a Home Computer because it had a nice printed label on the front which read: 'Solid State Software', because it was one of the first affordable PC's, that you could just slide in a Command Module containing the program, and turn it on, and bang you were using the computer, no waiting for slow loading times from Cassette Tape, or if you really into the future nice large bulky 5.25" 90K Floppy Drives, but now flash forward 37 years later, our computers are no longer 3Mhz, single-core 16-bit machines, but they...

Sony is increasing the cost of its PlayStation Plus membership program in the United States and Canada for the first time since the service’s launch in 2010, and members can expect to see higher renewal prices as early as next month.

Seems Sony is infact going ahead with an Slim PS4, much like what Microsoft released earlier the Xbox One S.

Pictures of the updated PlayStation 4 console have appeared in an online auction, showing off some changes to the device, including what appears to be a matte finish.


Seems someone has gotten hold of the PS4 SLIM version earlier and is selling it online, and as proof posted a few pictures of it, but no word if this is just a SLIM model of the PS4, or is it the rumored PS4 NEO model with 4K blu-ray player and VR support tech inside.

One thing that Gaming Consoles had over PCs has been their well-designed Gaming Controller, the only problem is when you tried to use it on your Windows PC, it would not talk to it at all, or you need buggy unofficial drivers or costly licensed accessory addons, well no more as Microsoft is signing-up as many PC partners as they can, to make sure those new PC Gaming Rigs shipping out will support the Xbox One Controller, right out of the box with no messing around installing unsigned drivers, or buying extra addons to talk to it!
