Gamer Survives Lightning Strike While Playing PlayStation at Home

John Lopez, Tech Times 20 September 2022, 10:09 pm According to CDC findings, approximately 40 million lightning strikes strike the ground in the United States each year. Nonetheless, the chances of being struck by lightning are less than one in a million in any given year, and nearly 90% of all lightning strike victims survive. This man from the United Kingdom was struck by lightning and survived. He was also playing PlayStation in his living room when the bizarre incident happened.

Man struck by lightning while playing PlayStation in his living room

No, he’s not Ben Franklin — nor is he Thor. A UK man was rushed to the emergency room last Monday after he was struck by lightning while playing video games in his living room. Aiden Rowan was “happily playing” video games on his PlayStation around 10:30 p.m. when he heard a loud crack followed by a “heavy jolting sensation.” “So, I am absolutely not one for sympathy posts, I had to share this because of how insane it is,” gamer and cosplayer Rowan, 33, wrote to his 13,900 on Instagram followers. “[There was] a loud bang and … 5 hours at the hospital confirmed that I was STRUCK BY LIGHTNING through the open window! Never going to play cute cat games during a thunderstorm again. I’m fine, just very sore, hell of a headache and burn stripes down my arm....

PlayStation Under Fire With New Lawsuit

Sony has found itself under fire this week after a new lawsuit was directed at the company that involved the PlayStation gaming brand. In a general sense, we've seen lawsuits come about in the past directed at various gaming companies such as Nintendo, Xbox, and more. However, more often than not, these previous lawsuits tend to involve faulty hardware. Conversely, these new allegations that Sony is dealing with don't involve physical hardware at all, and instead, it involves digital goods. First reported by Sky News, this new lawsuit aimed at PlayStation is of the class-action variety and stems from the UK. Specifically, the lawsuit in question claims that Sony is "ripping people off" by charging a 30% commission on every game that is sold through the PlayStation Stor...

Will Call of Duty be on PlayStation forever? Phil Spencer doesn’t know

While Microsoft has said in the past that it will continue offering Call of Duty products on competing platforms like PlayStation, Xbox boss Phil Spencer doesn't know if these billion-dollar games will stay on those platforms in perpetuity. "So how far does this go? Does this mean Activision games, that Call of Duty that you'll be able to play on any platform in perpetuity?" Bloomberg's Emily Chang asked Spencer in a recent interview.Spencer replied:"I don't know what means in forever, like when you think about how long. It's not for any kind of nefarious business reason, it's just like what did platforms mean 10 years ago, like I think the definition of some of these things might change over time. But our expectation is we want more people to play."Microsoft had previously promised to...

PlayStation Uninvolved With Death Stranding’s Xbox Game Pass Release

PlayStation has confirmed that it has nothing to do with Death Stranding's Xbox Game Pass PC release. After Hideo Kojima split with Konami in 2015, it only took a few months for him to confirm he'd be partnering with PlayStation on his next game. He'd still be an independent developer, meaning his studio is not owned by Sony. Sony offered to publish and fronted some money for Kojima to make a new game. It seemed like he was able to make whatever he wanted, as he made probably his weirdest game yet with untraditional gameplay. It was received well by critics and even performed well commercially. Death Stranding eventually came to PC courtesy of publisher 505 Games and now, as a result, the game is also coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC users.This was a pretty sudden move ...

Popular Steam Game Finally Coming to PlayStation and Xbox

A popular PC game that has long been exclusive to Valve's Steam platform is finally making its way to PlayStation and Xbox platforms in the future. Specifically, that game happens to be Mordhau, which is a "multiplayer medieval slasher." And while Mordhau has somewhat dwindled in popularity in recent years on Steam, the game could soon see a major revival now that it's coming to consoles. Developer Triternion announced this week that after years of requests, Mordhau will be coming to PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, and Xbox One at an undetermined date in the future. This reveal was made via a new trailer that showed off some brief footage of what the console versions of the game will have in store. In a general sense, Triternion offered up very little details about these Play...

Former PlayStation Exclusive Hohokum Comes To The PC On Steam

Screenshot: HohokumWhile a big deal has been made about some former PlayStation exclusives coming to the PC—like Horizon and God of War—no deal was made last week whatsoever about a game with a much lower profile, but which I love regardless.That game is Hohokum, which was first released on the PlayStation 4 (and PS3, and Vita) in 2014, and which remains one of most chill video game experiences available. A collaborative work between artist Richard Hogg, developers Honeyslug and the record label Ghostly, Hohokum is a beautiful 2D adventure where you play as a worm...kite...thing that just floats around its various levels, poking around a colourful landscape just to see what happens.HOHOKUM | Now Available On SteamIt’s magic. I love this game so much that amidst all the hardware drama an...
