If you weren’t one of the lucky few able to get your hands on a 500 Million Limited Edition PlayStation 4 Pro this morning, there is a silver lining: the limited edition accessories can still be obtained.
Because only 50,000 of these beauties were produced, chances of getting one were always slim. However, Sony is also selling the 500 Million Limited Edition DualShock 4 and the Gold 500 Million Limited Edition Headset separately and they are still up for grabs.

The company announced on Thursday its popular robot dog Aibo is returning to the US in September for the first time since 2006. The dog debuted in the 1990s in Japan, but excitement fizzled as cheaper robots entered the market.
Last year, the company debuted a smarter version with OLED eyes, facial recognition technology and the ability to develop a personality through artificial intelligence. It’s also packed with cameras and image sensors to detect and analyze sounds and images. Sony says Aibo’s main purpose right now is to be a companion robot.

Ultimately, this is still about a helicopter dropping you onto an island, but there’s a few catches and wrinkles to this standard formula. For one, the island is infested with NPC zombies. Second, you’re not just tasked with surviving – your mission is actually to collect blood samples from hives, gross little fleshy mounds growing out in the world.

Samples can also be collected from the corpses of slain players.
