Sony PS4: $100 Cheaper – Trying To Beat Xbox One In Price War


As a PlayStation fans, I certainly agree that Sony has made a great move this time in order to seize more buyers. Prior to E3, Sony planned to priced their PS4 for $500, which is equal to Xbox One offering.

However, later Sony decided to excluded their PS Eye and slash the priced down to $399. In fact, the PS Eye when you buy it separately, it’s cheaper at $60 a pop. It’s wise decision to exclude the exclusive bundle to help gamer save money on the initial purchase, and making competition looks much better on Sony’s side.

Most gamers (including me) are not really attracted to the extra peripheral, unless there are some exclusive titles that could fully make use of the PS eye and PS Move.

Sony would release this Standard Edition in this Dec 31, which is one month after Xbox One release date on November. Those gamers who’ve got some cash to burn would definitely buy both of the consoles. However, if you are willing to wait, You can get a $100 cheaper next gen console by getting the PS4 instead.

Neo Hammer: The Magnetic Hammer

Designer Jung Soo Park has come up with a nice idea of a new standard hammer call “Neo Hammer” with its handle could suck in and “carry” several nails at a time. It means worker will not have to bring a special nail storage or no need to clamp the nails with their lips anymore.

image credit: Jung Soo Park

There is a strong magnet residing at the bottom of the handle, so all you need to do is to jab the hammer into the nail container and a pile of nails will be picked up and ready to use. Of course, the magnet should be strong enough to suck the nails and won’t let them go even when you are nailing the wood.

Rubber grip allows better grip, while the red and black graphically shows a dynamic language and subtly shows the placement of magnets at the bottom of the handle.

This hammer will be a perfect partner for the ThumbSaver tool, which will help newbies hold the nail so they can nail something easily and safe from hitting their own thumb/fingers.

I wonder they will be on sale as a bundle in the future?
