At 6:30pm EST Jan 31, the PlayStation website released a 45 second ad which which showed off the iconic 4 PlayStation controller buttons.  The fairly epic music followed by the Feb 20th date seems to suggest that PlayStation is finally going to announce their next generation console.

Rumors have been running wild over the last few weeks as more details about both the “Xbox 720″ and “PlayStation 4″ have been becoming far more detailed.  This is a strong indication that more and more people are beginning to get their hands on what could be close to the finished product.

PlayStation 3 was revealed at E3 back in 2005 and was launched in 2006 for a high retail  price tag of $499 for 60GB of storage.  Here we are eight years later from the PS3′s reveal and all signs seem to indicate that it is indeed time for PlayStation’s Next Generation.  This would be a highly surprising, and bold move by Sony as that have historically chosen to be the last to give such announcements.  Even last week Sony made a statement saying that they would rather let Microsoft show their hand first so they could then make adjustments to their system and come out with something better.  But obviously at this stage in the game few adjustments could realistically be made.

So what does Feb 20th hold for gamers?  Check back here at to get the latest on this developing story.

It’s good to be back blogging!  While I was going from my blog, over the holidays I discovered this FANTASTIC new hobby called “Perler Beading”  Basicly you buy these special kinds of beads and peg boards.  Line the beads up on the pegs and then iron them.  After about 30 seconds the plastic melts, fusing them together.

…No it’s not a girls hobby!  Well… It just depends on what you decide to make.  Case in point:  Old school video game character sprites are some of the best things I love to make.  I started off by buying s starter pack from Joe Ann’s Fabric (not the manlyest store around but whatever…)  and making a few simple sprites.
Once I got the hang of it I began to make a few more complex sprites with shading and everything.  I realized that I was running out of colors quickly so I went online and ordered 40 more shades of colors so I had a more complete color selection to work from.  I wish I could say I made all of these from my head – but no.  I copied them from what i’ve seen others do.  But it is so relaxing!

123231I love just putting on some music, and relaxing while placing bead after bead.  I made so many over the Holidays that I’m taking a short break now.  But please check out what I’ve done so far.  Everything next to this text is a picture of some of the 8-bit sprites I have made that are hanging above my patio door.  Tried to make a small scene from “Super Mario World” If you have any suggestions on what to make next, please leave a comment in the window below!
