Sony Requiring Devs to Include Playable Demos For Their Poorly Conceived Playstation Plus Service

According to GameDeveloper.com, Sony has begun communicating with developers that games that cost $34 or higher will be required to have time-limited demos on the Playstation Plus Premium tier. These demos must be at least two hours long.

Apparently, many devs felt blindsided by this announcement, as they were informed about the policy via an update on Sony’s developer portal.

As someone who has been gaming a long time, I can give two shits over game demos.

Boston Logan Airport Evacuated Because the TSA Doesn’t Know What an Original Playstation Looks Like

Air travel these days is rough. I remember when people used to dress up for air travel. Nowadays, flying on an airplane is like taking a greyhound bus with wings, especially if you fly on Spirit.

I get it, after 9/11 security is a priority, but we got to hire people for the TSA that can identify am original Playstation and not confuse it for a bomb. This was the case on Easter Sunday when Boston Logan International Airport was evacuated a suspicious item was discovered. The item was an old Playstation.

“Troopers responded and, after investigation and research, determined that the item was a PlayStation video game console with a degraded condition caused by age or damage.”

After an investigation from the Boston Bomb Squad, passengers were eventually allowed to re-enter the terminal at about 5 p.m. when police gave the all-clear.

Thank god the authorities didn’t encounter someone traveling with a Sega Genesis or SNES, they probably would have shot the person on sight.
