Gravity Rush 2 'in earnest development,' my heart not yet broken

Since being teased at Tokyo Game Show 2013, Gravity Rush 2 has been quiet. I certainly missed it at TGS 2014. And just about every other event I went to this year, even if it was an event that there was no way a Gravity ...

Limited run, 20th anniversary PS4 is a PS1 throwback photo
Limited run, 20th anniversary PS4 is a PS1 throwback
by Steven Hansen

Just for a second I thought this was colored like the silver PS2 I always thought was kind of sucky (or the recent Dragon Quest PS4), and then I saw those PlayStation Japan live stream pictures (via Kotaku) with that matte gray look, that PS1-colored logo on the console and its controllers' PS button. Yeah, good stuff. 

Sony is only producing 12,300 of these individually numbered consoles (globally), which go on sale at Sony Stores in Japan tonight for 49,800 yen ($418). It comes with a vertical stand and that camera I forgot about, too. PlayStation Blog Europe has more, including a €499 price point, nice comparison shots, and no details yet on how to purchase this in that region. 

North American folks (US & Canada, at least) will be able to "pre-order" from a "very limited supply" on Saturday, December 6, says our PlayStation Blog. The PlayStation Experience keynote at 10:00am pacific will apparently give up details on that process, but Sony's Adam Boyes has said the console will be on sale at the event itself.

If you can't drop the cash on it, maybe check out the 20th Anniversary Theme for your regular old PS4. It comes with the PS1 start up sound.

Also, yes, you can buy me one of these for Christmas.
