Sony Partners With Nike To Introduce PlayStation-Themed Sneakers

Sony recently teamed up with NBA All-Star Paul George and Nike to create some slick-looking sneakers based off the PlayStation's design. The shoe, called the PG-2 PlayStation Colorway, looks pretty cool – whether you're a basketball fan or not.

In a post on the PlayStation blog, Paul George calls the partnership between Nike and PlayStation a "long time coming," and that he's loved video games since he was young. "Just like basketball, I’ve had a knack for video games since I was a kid. When I was 8 or 9, I used to amaze my uncle and all his friends by consistently beating them in all the sports games we’d play."

Watch How Skipping Key Items Affects Ocarina Of Time In This Video

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was a landmark game for its time, but still functioned the way other Zelda games did, with a mostly linear structure with some spokes for side quests. Breath of the Wild broke this mold by letter players skip many parts of the base game and play how they wanted. But what if someone tried to play the former Zelda game like they would the latter?

Youtuber Shesez tries to find out in his latest episode of Sequence Break, which uses glitches and other methods to circumvent the rigid design of games and see what happens. In this episode, Shesez finds out what happens if you don't get the Ocarina for Saria before you have to play your first song, how essential the first three dungeons are in finishing are to finishing the game, and what happens with young and adult Link swap places in cutscenes.

Report: Metal Gear Survive Will Have Microtransactions, Require Online Connection To Play

Metal Gear Survive will implement two features Metal Gear fans may not jive with: microtransactions and the constant requirement for an online connection.

GameSpot reports that during a recent preview session, Konami confirmed the game will always require players to be connected online so that the experience of going between single and multiplayer can be smooth. "Metal Gear Survive's online connectivity requirements were built to support a seamless integration between single player and co-op," the company told GameSpot. "This will also enable us to provide ongoing content post-launch."

Players will also be able to purchase currency for real money, but will be able to earn this same currency through gameplay. Examples of what players can purchase with this currency include passes that increase the rate at which they earn various currencies, as well as "Support Defenders."
