Something big is happening tonight. Something that rhymes with Graysmasion Pour. We think. As usual, we’ve ditched our online integrity to open up a betting pool for whatever it is that Sony has planned. So here are your odds: 2-1 says it’s a PS4. 5-1 on a PS Move 2.0, and 10-1 that it’s firmware. We;ve 20-1 odds that Kaz Hirai will actually frown for once, and if you’re brave enough, 100-1 that Peter Molyneux will appear with a game that is actually worth the originality points and doesn’t come with ridiculous promises. Line up line up! Taking all bets!

In Other News: 100 million people are still drawing something, get an Origin discount on the Battlefield, F Zero leaves the Wii U in the digital dust, when piracy became welcome, how to make Xenomorphs playable, the memes of the PS3 and Wesley Snipes versus Cowboy zombies.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because I was too busy trying to convince Geoff to watch an old cartoon about a superhero who was essentially a massive penis metaphor.

Model: Sammy Braddy

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.

    Curses, ION’ed again.

    Time to drink a coke and Braddy

    • Anon A Mouse

      I don’t drink coke Sammy Braddy. I’ll have mine on the rocks thank you very much.

      I thought the master race has seen bigger rigs XD

      • Lardus

        Master race only sees “big rigs” like those on the ION on their pc’s. Console gamers see it in real life!

    The odds are that I won’t be awake then

    Why show a header of the Golden Globes?

    • Admiral Chief Erwin

      He was feeling MELONcholy

      • Deon Steyn

        That’s one JUGgernaut header

            It’s definitely going to be MAMMARYble

            Will you keep me abreast of the situation?

  • Admiral Chief Erwin

    Hey, I just noticed, Darryn has “liked” Lazygamer.

    Two things then:
    1. Is it ethical to ‘like’ your corporate logo to fake numbers? (:p)
    2. Why is he only doing this now?

    • Deon Steyn

      It’s weird because I don’t think he likes anybody he works with.

    You have it linked, but thought it deserves more of a mention. Sony are GIVING you 10$ to buy stuff on PSN (in the USA, meh). AssBalls Live better? I think not.
