After trying to buy a PS4 at Walmart for his niece for Christmas, Igor Baksht found himself with a box of rocks.  When he tried to return the not-console, he was initially turned away: "'[the employee] said they cannot do anything about it because they don't have proof, how it came in, nothing," but after considerable hassle, he got his money back.  Baksht noted that when he purchased the console, the employee assisting him made a comment about how the box was unusually heavy.

Playstation Plus has been a huge success for Sony and it's about to get a lot more friendly for the gamers that take advantage of it.

Though the membership service includes regular deals on games and movies, the big draw has been the rotating selection of free titles that come with the $18 for three months or $50 every year subscription price.

Now, players who pay for that program will have a say in which games Sony will offer for free the following month.

The Official Playstation Blog announced the feature and offered a few new details

The game with the most votes will automatically be included in our future free game lineup for PlayStation Plus. If your pick didn't make the lineup, don't worry. In the first promotion, PlayStation Plus members can get the runner ups at a discount. We love to listen to our fans – and we're super excited to launch this promotion.

We'll have more details for you soon on when voting begins, what titles will be up for voting, and how you can cast your vote.



While we're on the subject, the Playstation Plus games for Playstation 4 are Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris and Limbo. Sound Shapes and Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones will be available for PS4, PS3 and the Playstation Vita. CastleStorm will be available for the PS3 and the Vita, while God of War Ascension will be available for PS3.

Sony wants to give you some variety in your Playstation 4 controllers.

The company announced new color options for the Dual Shock 4 during its Tokyo Game Show keynote address.

Polygon has the details:

The controllers (above) will come in gold, silver and "steel black" beginning Nov. 6, with a clear plastic crystal following on Dec. 3. The launch dates are for Japan; Sony did not give any information for western availability, though the gold and silver controllers have been announced for Europe.

Additionally, the hard drive bay cover for the console itself will get nine color variants on Nov. 6., including gold, silver, red, yellow, purple, and pink. Again, no western launch plans were given there. The faceplates will run ¥2,500, which is about $20.

Finally, a wireless round headset will launch in Japan on Dec. 3, costing ¥12,000, or roughly $100.
