The killing was the result of a robbery gone wrong.

A 22-year-old Atlanta man has been convicted of murder and sentenced to life plus five years in prison in connection with the 2014 killing of a man over a PlayStation 4 game console.


Some people will do anything to get their hands on the PlayStation 4 console, even as bad as 'murder', and this low-life of criminal instead of doing it virtually via Grand Theft Auto, he decided to do it the real world with a real gun, all in a horrible attempt at trying to become gamer, in the end his reward was not a Trophy on PSN, it was 40 years behind jail bars, and hopefully with no chance to ever attempt to play an video game again.

Will likely be revealed during Sony September’s 7th PlayStation Press Event

We knew it would happen eventually. Sony has made it clear over the years that the PlayStation brand would evolve into a “service” accessible on all platforms. That included making PlayStation games available for the Windows PC and Mac.


If this rumor turns out to be true, you will soon be able to play The Last Of Us from the PlayStation era on your PC, instead of buying a console, buying the game, installing it, and playing it, now you just pay monthly for the service, and stream the PlayStation game to your PC, now of course NOW already been available for most Smart TVs and some phones, but this would be expanding it to PC.

And that's before Xbox One S sales, which don't count yet!

The Xbox One outsold the PlayStation 4 in July, says Microsoft, a newsworthy feat because it hasn’t happened in eight months. Microsoft’s flagship console last surpassed Sony’s in October 2015, propelled by sales of Halo 5: Guardians. Before that, you have to go back to April 2015 to find an Xbox One win.


The massive price cuts that both Microsoft (officially) and retailers (unoffically) to the old bulker Xbox One console worked out for them in July 2016, as the NPD Group is reporting for the first time in almost a year, the big huge XB1 beat the monthly leader (the PlayStation 4) in sales, and that is all before the slimer, faster, nice shiny white box called the Xbox One S came in in early August.

Available at release for Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4, GWENT is a free-to-play game that puts you, not your cards, in the center of the action.

It seems CD Projekt RED is not totally ready to launch their new GWENT Card Game which is based on their very popular The Witcher series of games, instead they announced a new delayed start for their Closed Beta testing.


Sadly, it looks like those that registered early to get into the BETA program for GWENT will have to wait a little longer before trying out their card counting skills with others online as you go head-to-head in the first mini-game from The Witcher series turned into a full-fledged stand-alone game that is launching after the BETA program ends for both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 plus of course PC.
