Oh man, will this arduous four day week never end? Truly, no one has ever suffered like I have, and I’m not including that time I took a week off of work because I saw a spider in the shower.

In Other News: Dark Souls 2 ain’t no downgrade, Smash Bros goes to super Mario land, Rockstar is cheap like my last date and Oddworld hopes that it’s tasty enough for a sequel.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because the public protector was busy telling us that we had to pay back the tax money we used to add several security measures onto the website. Firewall-Pit se gat.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now.So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.

    Next PS4 UPDATE News!!!!

    “Sony has announced the HDCP copy protection that previously prevented video capture through HDMI will be removed in a Share update due “in the upcoming weeks”. It’ll also add the ability to export to USB. There’s no mention of being able to play any other media through though.”

    “I’m happy to report that, as a direct result of your feedback, we’ll soon be bringing some of your most-requested features to PS4 with a system software update in the upcoming weeks. These features and additions will help make your PS4 even more socially connected by further enabling you to customise your most epic gaming moments and granting even more options to show them to your friends.

    This upcoming update will add a rich video editor with a simple tool to personalise your video clips, and you’ll also be able to export to and save the videos and screenshots you create by pressing the SHARE button to a USB drive. In addition, this update will add an HDCP off option for capturing gameplay via HDMI, a feature we’ve previously said would come after launch.

    We recognise that some gamers want to record and share longer clips of their gameplay sessions, and we’re excited to deliver this option with PS4. There’s a lot more coming in this update as well, so stay tuned for more — there will be plenty in the update to excite everyone.”
