WSJ: PlayStation 4 to Stream PlayStation 3 Games
The Wall Street Journal has revealed that an unnamed source “familiar” with Sony’s plans with the Playstation 4 claims that the next console will be able to stream PlayStation 3 games. This is very interesting news, as it’s been swirling around that the PlayStation 4 will not be accepting used games. This may be the way around not pissing everyone off.
Joystiq’s report suggest “that online streaming of current PS3 games will be paired with new games sold on optical media through regular channels.” A good solution to not having backwards compatibility? Maybe.
Announcements from Sony regarding the PlayStation will be on the 20th. Stay tuned to Albotas for more on the next generation console.
Just as ‘Bop It’ came out with different, more challenging versions of the game when it became popular, so did Loopz. The original Loopz game was comprised of 4 simple U shapes. The light would flash, you would put your hand through that loop, and depending on your game you would move on. With Loopz [...]
SDCC 2013 Open Registration – My Story
Today was the day for SDCC 2013 Open Registration – or all those people who didn’t attend SDCC last year, or missed the pre-registration...

This year was Mia’s very first Valentine’s Day. Brooklin’s first Valentine’s Day at school and well Kaila just enjoyed the day. Brooklin is just learning to write her name and still unfocused enough to write all the names herself. I imagine next year she’ll do it all on her own. Kaila enjoyed passing out plenty of goodies to... [Continue Reading]
Brandt Peters got the weekend off to a great start with a quick sketch-y preview of his Greeter, one of several designs for the upcoming collaborative Wandering Misfits mini series with Kathie Olivas. The sreies will feature sculpting by Shinbone Creative and will be produced by Cardboard Spaceship. No release...
Ran across this fierce Ramakien Paw by Frank Mysterio during my news run and immediately thought ‘must post’. Based on a Thai version of Hindu mythology, the impressive piece brings a new dimension to the toy while flowing nicely with the sculpt. I’ve always enjoyed pieces with all-over patterns and...
KusoPop continues their expansion into lifestyle accessories with their new Ponshogun Wooden Pendant Necklace, a collaboration with LA lifestyle brand Swaggwood. An urban take on the warriors of feudal Japan, the piece features a 4” wood pendant with what appears to be a laser-cut design. The attached black beaded necklace...
I received my awesome "Mardi Gras in a box" from the terrific Patti Haskins last week, which was part of the Plush Team's yearly secret santa swap this year. I was really excited to open it up, and here's what I found inside:
Besides the fun Mardi Gras bling in the box, the star of the show was this amazing handmade plush Mardi Gras Crown! So awesome! It was so fantastic that some of my new plush snuck it out of the box along with some bling, and decided to have a Mardi Gras party of their own while I was out of the house on Tuesday. It seems that Merv the Muppet Reporter was named King of this Mardi Gras celebration, and, as you can see, really enjoyed having that crown on! (I think that they opened up the bottle of Yermit wine that Santa had, and this was the result. ;D)
Following on the heels of the debut Z0MZ drop in January, Dynomight has just released the new d20 Z0MZ. While similar in design to January’s Citrus Brute, the red d20 has six eyes darting in all directions. As with all the Z0MZ, d20 is a 4” non-articulated resin ‘bot and...

As soon as kids around 1-year-old begin to pull themselves up to a standing position and begin to walk, riding toys for toddlers become increasingly popular. They offer a great way for kids to practice walking and developing balance, as they push it from behind, and they learn to develop coordination and the muscles in [...]
Here are some fresh brand-new BATMAN and JOKER Papercraft Toys that we came across the other day & thought would be a good idea to share. ( Just click on them for larger versions )
Now, you can print these out with your computer printer ( we suggest using card stock, but regular paper will work too ), cut them out, and put them together. Hey, if you make some please let us know how they turned out. Thanks!
Here's some pics of some really fun brand-new BATMAN Toys to keep an eye out for. Shown here are 2 different Bendee Toys (bendable figures) of Batman and the Joker and then we get to see a Batman Key Chain too. They also have a Bendee based on Superman, not pictured here.
Wait! Are these called Bendees or Bendys? Ha Ha! Either way, they're pretty cool. The Batman figure looks a lot like it's based on the comic book artwork of Darwyn Cooke ( Remember DC Comics' The New Frontier? ).
McFarlane Toys in partnership with Ubisoft announced that they will be manufacturing Assassin’s Creed® action figures, one of world’s most successful video games franchises, this summer. McFarlane Toys’ Assassin’s Creed first series 6 inch toy figures will consist of seven figures including Connor and Haytham Kenway. The figures are said to be incredibly detailed and...
Lollipop Chainsaw Valentine Edition, Out Now In Japan
Lollipop Chainsaw Valentine Edition released in Japan last Thursday, with no release in North America as of yet. This edition of the chainsaw-welding cheerleader game includes a “perfect unlock code,” two DVDs, a comic book, and a ton of goodies for your computer, including wallpapers, a desktop clock, and a ton of trailers.”
This game edition runs in Japan at 4,980 yen, which is about $53. It’s pretty affordable if you ask me, but if you plan on importing it from Japan, don’t expect to pay that low of a price.
