SOE president: "people that don't play games have no business in this business"

Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley has been talking to Edge about his gaming habits. As a keen Eve and Dota 2 player, he believes that everyone in the industry should play and understand games.

“I really play," he tells Edge. "I’m in a Null-sec corp, the whole bit. The games I’m playing right now are Planetside 2, Dota 2 and Eve. Eve used to be the forefront game, but now it’s the background game because I don’t have a choice, I’m having too much fun in Planetside 2. And Dota 2 I’m playing a lot with my kids right now.”

Edge put every Edge cover ever online

This won't come as a surprise, but we're quite fond of magazines here at PCG. We also quite like gaming history. And pictures. Our friends at Edge have posted a gallery of every single Edge cover ever, stretching all the way back to issue ZERO, published back in 1993. That's almost 19 years worth of images and cover lines reflecting the gaming issues of the day. Dive head first into the time warp on the Edge-Online site.

There's a big bookcase stuffed full of every issue of PC Gamer UK ever in the corner of the office. I don't go over there very often because it smells like old, but it feels as though we could dust some down and put them online. Would you like to see us do something similar?

Edge iPad edition is a very pretty fusion of web and mag

Our hyper-chums at Edge have created something very clever. They've launched a new iPad version of their mag. It's a bit like the PC Gamer iPad version, but extra special. The Edge iPad edition has been designed from the ground up to be read on a tablet and comes complete with galleries, videos and other interactive elements.

Humble Indie Bundle includes Osmos, Edge and Anomoly: Warzone Earth

The latest pay-what-you-want Humble Bundle is the cross-platformiest one yet. The lovely blob-eat-blob eat 'em up Osmos, multidimensional puzzler, Edge, and the excellent reverse-tower defence strategy game, Anomoly: Warzone Earth are included. Buying you the bundle will give you access to Android, Windows, Mac OS X and GNU/Linux versions of each game and you'll get World of Goo, too, if you pay more than the average donation, currently set at $5.93.

As the trailer above neatly explains, you'll be able to dish out a customisable amount of your donation to the Child's Play charity and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. We love Humble Indie Bundles, so much that we names the Humble Bundle guys as our community heroes of the year.
