Extra Life, a charity organization which raises money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, has had its website come under DDoS attack, according to a post on the organization’s Facebook page. Jeromy Adams, founder and director of Extra Life, repeatedly apologized for the issue and asked fans to spread the word on “every form of social media” they could.

“I am not sure what kind of person would DDoS a charitable initiative,” Adams wrote.” I am so sorry that you are going through this frustration today. Our entire team is purely heartbroken that someone would do this. But it has happened. “

It’s rare a company is proud enough of the hardware in their home console that they release a trailer that contains a minute and 13 seconds of nothing more than the technical specifications of the hardware. I mean, who does that? Well, apparently Sony does.

There are no explosions, no gun fights, no ridiculous cameos from beyond-beautiful Hollywood sex icons or some silly motif in which the company is trying spin for viewers. Instead, Sony opted to keep it simple, showing different angles of the PlayStation 4 while some relaxing hi-fi elevator music matches the visual eases that go in and out while highlighting each of the PlayStation 4 specialties.

What we have here is basically just Sony saying “Look folks, no gimmicks. This is what we have. It’s sexy ain’t it?”

Nintendo has announced it will suspend the 3DS’s Swapnote application due to the distribution of offensive material.

The service, which allows users to exchange hand drawn messages using either Spotpass or Streetpass, will no longer be available from October 31.

“Nintendo has learned that some consumers, including minors, have been exchanging their friend codes on Internet bulletin boards and then using Swapnote (known as Nintendo Letter Box in other regions) to exchange offensive material,” the company wrote on its website.
