Oh the hilarity of what is this day, April 1st. I greet it like any other day expecting nothing more than to check my email inbox, see that I've spent too much on Amazon again with delivery confirmations and spend the rest of my day trying to justify said purchases but today was - slightly - different. I open my email inbox, good ol' Gmail, to find a newsletter from my good pal's Playstation.
What could it be, I ask myself. Playstation have been rolling out various changes to their PSN experience introducing Playstation Music and the like, so reading the subject - and I quote - "Introducing PlayStation®Flow | PS4 gaming meets real world swimming" and for a mere desperate moment of witt and sniggering to myself what is this daft idea now?
You read the first paragraph, and the next, and then you read "When you get to a swimming section of a game you can hit pause, head to the pool, dive in and resume playing through PlayStation Flow." and those little spidey senses finally begin to tingle. Finally that hope of being one of the first to discover this marketing nightmare from our beloved Playstation was all but a faint dream.
I'll say it, Playstation, you had me for all of 30 seconds. In the palm of your hands. Wondering when would I be able to try out this Flow you speak of. Thanks for brightening up my Wednesday.
But seriously guys, if you read this, when can I have a go?
