Sony ‘unveils’ social-focused PS4

Sony is sharing its PlayStation 4 with the world, but there was no word on price or availability, other than a fl ash on the screen saying “Coming holiday 2013”.

The Japanese electronics giant unveiled their new gaming system this week, hyping the machine as a “supercharged PC” with the ability to effortlessly share interactive experiences, by instantly broadcasting video of gaming action or virtually handing out health potions to friends online.

“Today marks a moment of truth and a bold step forward for PlayStation,” said Andrew House, Chief Executive Officer of Sony Computer Entertainment. Read more about Sony ‘unveils’ social-focused PS4

Gladiators eye 2016 success

The team had needed a victory to ensure they reached the next round but were undone by elementary mistakes which allowed the Super Falcons to score two quick goals through Gloria Ofoegbu and Francisca Ordega.

Say it

Leave Ilukena alone, your leaders are the most corrupt ones and they are the ones who started corruption. They are the founders of corruption in Namibia.

*If the Education Permanent Secretary Alfred Ilukena really did not know what the wife was up to, then I am wondering what kind of marriage they have. It seems she was really dishonest if she even used her maiden surname on documents. But why did he also rush to get the papers through without Namwandi’s blessings? Something is very fishy here.
