Sony attempted to include the PlayStation 4 Eye camera peripheral with the console at launch but dropped its plans after costs proved prohibitive, Sony Computer Entertainment president and Group CEO Andrew House revealed this week. SCE Japan senior vice president Masayasu Ito notes that the company was determined to reach a $399 price point for the PlayStation 4 at launch, putting it $100 under the Kinect-bundled Xbox One. At the same time, Sony executives wanted to minimize loss on each console sold, driving the company's decision to release the PS4 Eye separately at $59.99. House downplayed the Eye's importance to PlayStation 4 buyers at launch. "Certainly for the earlier part of the lifecycle, the vast majority of the audience that we speak to tells us that their primary wish is for the full controller interface and there's not necessarily a huge emphasis being placed on camera interaction," he said. House hinted at plans to "adjust messaging" regarding the peripheral over the PlayStation 4's lifespan, suggesting that the PlayStation Eye could be included with future PS4 bundles.Sony abandoned plans to bundle Eye camera with PS4 to keep price down originally appeared on Joystiq on Wed, 09 Oct 2013 14:00:00 EST.

The markets are finally beginning to realize that the debt ceiling debacle, economic contraction in the US, housing bubble 2.0 bursting, China slowdown, Japan stagflation and European banking crisis are not good for stocks. With that in mind, the S&P 500 has briefly taken out the trendline that has supported it since QE 4 was announced. Remember, the Fed is printing $2 billion per day and funneling it into the system. So if the markets begin to break down NOW, the only thing the Fed can do is print more money. However, this combined with the debt ceiling debacle could make a REAL mess. Yesterday the US issued a 4-week Treasury bill that came darn close to outright failure. With investors beginning to question whether the US might indeed have a debt crisis on its hands, investors are beginning to shun some US Treasuries and T-Bills for others based on priority of payments. Remember, every single Treasury and T-bill out there is utilized as collateral for millions of Dollars worth of trades. So if the big financial institutions begin to refuse to accept some US debt as collateral based on the perceived risk of a deb ceiling debacle there could quickly be capital call in the market similar to what happened when Lehman failed. This is not to say that the US will default on its debt. Rather this is to say that the mess the Government created is affecting things behind the scenes in the financial system. And this is where the next crisis could emerg. With that in mind, investors should be prepping now for a potential run of systemic risk.

ReutersWhen Americans aren't fretting over being undereducated, we're usually fretting about being overeducated. Every so often, writers and academics start sounding the alarm about a coming glut of college graduates who will end up doomed to a life of underemployment. And, when the economy is down, those warnings can seem pretty reasonable. That's why the chart below, from a recent report by the OECD on jobs skills around the world, caught my eye. Though it doesn't deal specifically with the college educated, it shows that about 19 percent of all Americans say they have more education than necessary to qualify for their job. That's actually below average among the 22 countries listed. In Japan and the UK, the figure is around 30 percent. At the other end of the spectrum in Italy, it's about 13 percent. So there really are lots of overeducated Americans — and English and Japanese and Australians and Estonians for that matter, too. Interestingly, the OECD report finds that based on their literacy scores, most workers who claim to be overqualified for their jobs are probably well suited for them in terms of their raw skills. So it might just be that in any country with a functioning school system, some people's credentials are going to outstrip their talents.

As we continue to see the Ekiden Pack, a race in Japan between universities, revealed we get a look at another major institution’s colorway on the Nike faithful. Josai University is a private university in Sakado, Saitama Prefecture, Japan that competes in the 219 kilometer, Tokyo to Hakone race. The Air Max 95 inspired by the University of Josai has a red mesh upper on the top encasing the laces as well as a red midsole that holds the Air Max bubbles which is on top of the black outsole. The suede layers along the side of the kicks fades from light grey to black from top to bottom, the rest of the Ekiden Pack continues this same layer theme with all 5 shoes in the pack. Braided black and red laces cap off another dope pair of Air Max’s which are sure to be a favorite in the pack. You can scoop the Air Max 95 “Josai University” at mita online if you need your pair sooner than later. You may not be a fan of the 136 mile race but are you a fan of the “Josai University” Air Max 95′s? Let us know in the comments section below and stay tuned to Sneakerfiles for more on the Ekiden Pack and much more! Via EU

Researchers have come one step closer to understanding unstable atomic nuclei. A team of researchers from RIKEN, the University of Tokyo and other institutions in Japan and Italy has provided evidence for a new nuclear magic number in the unstable, radioactive calcium isotope 54Ca. In a study published today in the journal Nature, they show that 54Ca is the first known nucleus with 34 neutrons (N) where N = 34 is a magic number.
