The evolution of the Xbox & PlayStation controllers in animated GIF

Posted On December 9, 2013

As with most products the first initial release isn’t always the best design that it could be. It normally takes a few years and a lot of input and use from users before they get it right. Today the Xbox and PlayStation controllers are probably some of the comfiest controllers you can use but it wasn’t always that way.
The people over at GadgetLove have recently demonstrated the complete evolution of both the Xbox & PlayStation controllers in two excellent animated gifs.

Is Lego getting ready to release Official Simpsons figures?

Posted On December 7, 2013

The Simpsons have been around for quite awhile and have conquered the world on many levels for the last 25 odd years. So by now you’d think they’d already have there very own lego set by this point.


Unfortunately that’s not the case for the time being but things might be looking to change as two eBay sellers votvik and lego*dudeshave have listed what could hopefully be official Lego mini figures for Homer, Marge, Lisa and Ned Flanders. There’s been no word from either Lego or Fox to whether this is true or not. But figures crossed it is.
