playstation 4 console

If you play video games, you've had November 15 circled on your calendar for months. Today is the launch of Sony's PlayStation 4 (in North America, at least), and the official start of the next generation in gaming.

In a nutshell, the PS4 is an excellent console. It's well designed, has great graphics and gameplay capabilities, the PS Network is exciting, and the possibilities for remote play using the PS Vita are pretty cool. But there are some issues here that you might want to consider when comparing PS4 with Microsoft's forthcoming XBox One (which will be released next Friday).

reebok answer I OG colorway

In stores today is an old-school classic: Reebok's Answer I OG in black, red, and gold. The first Answer I was worn by NBA superstar Allen Iverson and hit the court in 1997. This re-released sneaker features the same DMX 10 moving air technology as the original shoe, and the design elements that made it iconic — the concealed laces, the I3 logo, and, of course, the color scheme. (Iverson's name is also embroidered on the tongue.) 

Check out a few more looks at the shoe, including some shots of it chilling on the streets of Philly, Iverson's old stomping grounds:

adidas crazy ghost green

You're on the court, you put a move on the defender, and you're gone before he even knows you were there. You could've been a ghost you moved so fast. Of course, it takes lots of practice and training to be that good. But it helps to have the right shoe, too.

Today, adidas debuted the Crazy Ghost, a new basketball shoe that features the company's newest performance innovation, the Crazyquick outsole traction system. When you wear the shoe, the Crazyquick system give you maximum control and flexibility to make quick cuts on the court. The shoe is also lighter and more breathable thanks to adidas' redesigned SPRINTWEB, and the bright colors and design elements make it look snappy. 

Three NBA players will wear the Crazy Ghost this season — Harrison Barnes of the Golden State Warriors, New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday (that's the the Holiday Pelicans version of the shoe at the top of the page), and the Denver Nuggets' Kenneth Faried. Scroll down to see more images of the shoe (including a cool blue/orange Faried Nuggets colorway), and a shot of Holiday wearing it on the court.
