LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens game re-imagines the movie as a comedy

The best way to make this clear is through a new take on the original teaser trailer for the film - you know the one. The one where Finn pops up in the desert to scare the pants off everyone watching. The one where you first saw BB-8 rolling. The one where you see Rey driving her popsicle speeder bike.

PlayStation 4 Christmas gift is a block of wood

PlayStation 4 Christmas gift is a block of wood

A Christmas gift from no less than Santa Clause himself was opened this past week with a less-than-fantastic bit of content. Inside the box was a block of wood instead of the console itself. Cut to a similar size and placed in the box, apparently without signs of damage to the box itself. Amazing that Santa would have such a strange mishap, yes? As it turned out, Santa purchased this particular PS4 from a local Target store, where they were more than willing to take the box back and, in addition, give the parents of the gift-getter a $100 gift card for their trouble.

PS4 gets new Call of Duty: Black Ops III standard edition bundle

With Call of Duty: Black Ops III having already been released on consoles and PC for over a month now, it might seem like an odd time for Sony to include the game in a new PlayStation 4 system bundle. However, with PlayStation now being the official home of the Call of Duty series, basically meaning they get DLC packs and other content earlier than other platforms, Sony is betting on the bundle being a big seller this holiday season, especially for those who haven't picked up the game yet.
