PS4 games work the same in Glacier White, but I want one anyway

I'll be the first to admit that I'm a sucker for alternate colors in electronics hardware. As a tech journalist and as a consumer, I always look forward to new versions of devices - even when a new version is only marked by its new external trappings.

Street Fighter V will shame rage quitters with public profile icon

Even almost a year after launch, Street Fighter V still has problems dealing with rage quitters, or those players who leave a match before its completion, either out of pure frustration or to avoid the penalties of losing. In the months since the game's release, developer Capcom implemented changes to make sure rage quitters were appropriately punished, but poor sportsmanship continues to be a downer for those who play online.
