At first I thought this was a scam because the graphic design is pretty cheap and nasty, but it looks legit from sonyrewards.com: the PlayStation credit card.
It claims you can get $150 off an 80GB PlayStation 3 with one of these, but I wouldn't recommend you get one because that's only $5 less (once you factor in their "shipping and handling charges") than what Amazon
is already selling the exact same machine at, AND the APR is a whopping 30%.
While I was on holiday, I got to read Jim Rossignol's This Gaming Life
, and I really enjoyed it. It's a personal hike through PC gaming and game journalism land, and even if you're a gameblog-reading obsessive (what, us?) and recognise a lot of the stories in there, it's nevertheless an often gently-wry, information-rich read. Plus I got to read it in a hammock.
There's a solid amount of story in there too on Eve Online, a game I've never played, and a game I never realised was quite so fascinating-sounding. I don't suppose I'll ever get to play it - Licky King is out, and my stack of unplayed 360 games is teetering around 9 high - but boy did I want to on putting the book down.
Good work, Mr R! Worth pointing out too that this is a really beautiful artifact of a book, in terms of the book build quality. Tactile. Quite rare these days, that.
