Codelion, aka BBalling1, has released a video showing the PS Vita controlling a cube on his PC via its gyroscope. Some are refering to this as an native hack but since most of the functionality of this is running PC side I'm not sure that such a bold claim can be made. Yes... there is some exploit in play. What do you guys think?

To Celebrate the PlayStation's 20 Year Anniversary, Sony has made the PlayStation 1 inspired PS4 Console. Well, EA has also decided to do something special for the 20 Year Anniversary. This weekend only, courtesy of Electronic Arts, the games Need for Speed: Most Wanted (PS Vita), Mirror's Edge (PS3) and Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare (PS4) are free in the PS Store. I just went on the the PS Store to see for myself and sure enough, all three games are free. There was no banner or anything announcing the promotion. I just had to search individually for each game and "purchase" them. Hurry, as the offer is only available until 12:00 AM PST, December 8, 2014.
