PlayStation AF1 _ 003.jpgEarlier today, NIKE posted an ‘Inside The Vault’ retrospective on one of their most coveted collaborations, the PlayStation Air Force 1. Within it, they briefly detailed the conceptual process and even teased about the future. It makes you think… can we see a retro release of the original full grain leather design? Either way, let’s take a look at MY story and how I acquired a pair of one of my favorite sneakers of all time…

Today was a great day. Other than some big news happening behind the scenes at work… I also got my 20th Anniversary PS4 consoles in the mail! I waited for FedEx to drop them off the headed to the Mad Catz office this morning. We filmed this earlier today! So check out our unboxing and a teaser for our future giveaway!

TE2I work with arcade sticks. Something I really like. One of the projects I worked on awhile ago was the design of the award winning Mad Catz Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition 2, the successor of the original Tournament Edition FightStick that I worked on back in 2008. The TE2 was first introduced with Killer Instinct on Xbox One but now we (at Mad Catz) are releasing it for other consoles & tying it into other games. Click below for a mini-gallery of all our TE2 FightSticks that are just about to release!

playstation_prime_01Gaming fans probably took notice of of the SEGA Mega Drive Megatron Transformer that Takara Tomy is releasing in October. Autobot fanboys were probably up in arms about the lack of gaming representation on their end… However just not too long ago, Takara Tomy announced and released concept art for their forthcoming Sony PlayStation Optimus Prime (which REALLY got me excited)…

If you’ve been following the site or my social media, you’ll know I am a big fan of the PlayStation brand. Everything from the games and hardware, to lifestyle things such as PlayStation sneakers, etc. I just love the brand that I grew up with. So when I woke up early this morning…

Today, courtesy of Radio Kaikan we have our first actual photos of the work in progress Autobot leader, donning the classic PlayStation styling.

The Transformers X PlayStation Optimus Prime is slated for release in early 2015.

DSC00510I have a lot of things that I’m fond of. Arcade sticks, video games and sneakers. One of my geekmode passions is studying design and history of products and the culture that stems from them. To me, that’s the best stuff… History. It may or may not be relevant to the general public, but to those in the know… It is a wealth of information that is appreciated and timeless. That’s what I love.

It was my birthday yesterday. I’m old. Forgive me if my tastes do not align with yours, but it’s okay 😉 ! I decided to post my first quarter (first 4 months of 2014!) review of sneakers I’ve acquired or ‘pick-ups’ so far this year. Some of them crossover with my other passions, which you’ll notice right away in the video below!
