PRESS RELEASE: RECYCLED PLAYSTATIONS BECOME BRITISH DESIGNER CHAIRS

London-based Pli Design Ltd (http://www.plidesign.co.uk) is launching its latest eco-friendly product, a chair made from 100% recycled games consoles. The launch takes place on Wednesday September 10, 2008 in London, at the HQ of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.

The British manufactured 'Reee® chair' has a plastic seat and back made entirely from recycled PlayStation®2 computer games consoles*. Unlike most recycled plastics, which come from a variety of sources, the plastic in the Reee chair is entirely from a single source, making it the first of its kind in the country.

The Reee chair - which is available for the contract, education and domestic markets - was conceived at the annual Eden Project Suppliers conference in Cornwall, where the Pli team discussed the possibilities for reusing high-quality plastic from waste electronics products with other manufacturers, including Sony Computer Entertainment.

Each chair uses 2.4 kg of recycled plastic and the chair parts are designed to be disassembled at the end of their life and recycled again and again. The production of recycled plastic requires a fraction of the energy used for 'virgin' plastic that comes straight from...

Indeed, we've shown you some of these before! These are just like those.

If you visit the extras menu, go to passwords and enter jmsotsynrn, you'll get the Type 17 pistol.

Nice enough, but entering aottrykmyn will get you the Snake-dressed-as-Altair costume that left the Internet scratching its head a few months back.

It even matches his moustache!

Sony Taking Action Against Phony Uncharted Airsoft Gun

308w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment is none too thrilled over the fact that online retailer King of Swords is selling an unofficial replica of the Beretta M92F gun featured in PlayStation 3 title Uncharted.

According to a company spokesperson, they will be taking "appropriate" measures against the Web site very soon:

The Drake's Gun is not licensed or in any way sanctioned by SCE and one we certainly do not condone.

We are investigating the source of this product and will proceed with the most appropriate action.

It's worth pointing out that this same retailer is also selling a number of unlicensed swords from the Final Fantasy series.

309w ago - Konami have revealed that you will be able to unlock an Altair Assassin's Creed outfit for Snake in MGS4. It was seen in a video earlier this year, but was presumed to be an April Fool's joke.

To quote: Snake running around MGS4 dressed as Altair, looking for all the world like it was actually in the game... so would it surprise you to hear that it wasn't really a gag? Yeah, that's right.

It was announced at the MGS4 wrap party today that MGS4 players will indeed be able to unlock an Assassin's Creed outfit for Snake (we won't tell you how), which were it not for the silver moustache and trademark cigarette would have you thinking Altair himself had time-travelled his way into the final Metal Gear title.
