A Georgia judge sentenced Kayla Dixon to 40 years in prison after she pled guilty to shooting a man over his Playstation 4. WSB-TV in Atlanta reports that Dixon gave her confession to the crime as part of a plea deal.

The horrific incident occured when Dixon and her boyfriend attempted to steal the Playstation 4 after 28-year-old Daniel Zeitz posted a listing for the console on Craigslist. Zeitz resisted, and Dixon shot him.

“I would trade anything, almost anything, to bring Daniel back. But I know I can’t,” she said in a statement to press. “I know he had plans. I wish I could tell him I’m so, so sorry that this happened, but I can’t.”

Your excuses are dwindling, you console hold outs.

Sony announced a permanent price cut for the Playstation 4 Oct. 8, lowering it to $349.99. That puts it on the same footing as Microsoft's Xbox One.

Since Sony's console has led this generation so far, it'll be interesting to see whether that lead will increase with the price drop or whether they cut it because of slipping ground.

Kotaku reported on it this morning:

Starting October 9, the PlayStation 4 will be a little cheaper in the U.S. and Canada. Oh goodie.

The PS4, which is currently $399.99 USD, will be marked down to $349.99 in the U.S., while in Canada, the console, which now costs $449.99 CAD, will be marked down to $429.99.

This appears to be for the 500GB HDD PlayStation 4 and follows hot on the heels of a price cut Japan got earlier this month.

It's one of those two times of year again. Your Playstation 4 is getting an update.

There's nothing mind-blowing in the update, which is turning the numeral dial up to 3.0. But there will be some reorganization and some new options to let you share those sweet, sweet frags.

According to the Playstation Blog, the most highlighted inclusions in the update will be the option to share videos taken on the console over Twitter and a new Playstation Plus section. The latter will aspire to try and pull all the membership features and games available into one place so you don't have to go search for it.

The rest of the changes are detailed here:

YouTube live: You'll see a new icon for YouTube on the Broadcast Gameplay Screen, accessible after hitting the Share button. Now you can live stream directly from your PS4 to YouTube. Livestreams will be viewable across YouTube.

PNG Screenshots: If you'd like your game screenshots to be in a higher quality format, you can now select PNG instead of JPEG. To access, press Share > Share Settings > Screenshot Settings > Image Format.

Events: A new hub for Events has been added to PS4, accessible from the home screen. This will give you an overview of activities taking place in the games you play most, as well as official broadcasts. For instance, here's an in-game racing event taking place in Project Cars, which you can register for directly from the Events hub.

Communities: PS4 users will have the ability to create communities based around shared interests, like games, genres, and more. Communities include a message board with general discussion, screenshots shared by players, and the ability to join parties / games.

Stickers: From the PS4 system's Messages app, you'll see a new option for Stickers. The 3.00 update will contain stickers themed around Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Knack, LittleBigPlanet 3, Resogun, and more. Instead of typing out a message, just send a sticker — like Drake looking at a watch, asking you to wait a minute."
