207w ago - Just under two months ago we reported on five PS3 Slim customized mods dipped in 24kt gold selling for $4,999 each, and now Stuart Hughes has unveiled the gold and diamond studded Sony PS3 Supreme video game console.
The price of their Sony PS3 Supreme? It will be sold as a limited edition offering with only three ever created for a price tag of £199,995 ($320,000 US) each!
To quote: "Fashioned and designed specifically by Stuart Hughes, the company states that the system is the most expensive PS3 in the world. The sparkling wonder took twelve weeks of intricate workmanship to finally exuberate with great shine.
The main outer section of the exquisite PS3 console is replaced by circa 1,600 grams of solid 22ct gold. The disc loading entrance is laden with fifty-eight 0.50ct Flawless diamonds which amounts to a total of 26ct."
207w ago - In a recent interview with GameInformer.com (linked above), the director of analyst services for Electronic Entertainment Design and Research (EEDAR) Jesse Divnich predicted a new Grand Theft Auto game will be unveiled at E3 2010 in June.
To quote: "I think we're going to hear about another Grand Theft Auto. I think there won't be any playable stuff. I think they'll give you some type of teaser, because we do think that a year from then in 2011 we're going to see another Grand Theft Auto."
We asked Divnich about whether Sony or Microsoft would try and nab some sort of exclusive rights to the newest GTA, but he thought that those days were over.
"I don't foresee Microsoft or Sony attempting to obtain any type of exclusivity with the next Grand Theft Auto. Microsoft paid a lot of money for exclusivity on the downloadable content for GTA IV, which unfortunately did little to move consoles for Microsoft."
