Well, well, newshounds, looks like it’s another Saturday edition of ICYMI. The gang is out at a local brewery today, sampling a limited brew, while I’m back at HQ. It’s all good, I’ve got the Arsenal game on.
It seems Sony, who took great care to carefully reveal where fans could get their hands on a 20th Anniversary PlayStation 4 system, is a bit peeved that these systems are winding up on eBay, where they are selling for way more than the original $500 asking price.

Steam’s Holiday event, an auction where players bid on games using a special virtual currency, had a bit of the Humbug this week when it was taken offline. An exploit allowed bidders to amass lots of “gems” with very little effort quickly. The good news is that the exploit has been fixed and the auction is now live again.
Founders Brewing Company is bringing back Blushing Monk early next year.

You can look for Blushing Monk at Founder’s taproom starting in late February 2015, with bottle releases following a week later.
