Sony unveils trailer for its first PlayStation original series, ‘Powers’

Sony has deliberately focused on the gaming capabilities of the PlayStation 4 to date, but the console isn’t just about video games. Sony Pictures Television is currently producing a PlayStation Plus-exclusive original series, called Powers, and we’ve just got our first look at the show at New York Comic Con.

The cop drama is based on a comic of the same name, and it follows detectives who keep an eye on people with superpowers. According to a press release, the show asks: “what if the world was full of superheroes who aren’t actually heroic at all? What if all that power was just one more excuse for mischief, mayhem, murder, and endorsement deals?” Going off the trailer, it seems the show strikes a thoroughly mature tone, though we’ll…

The ‘original’ Rickroll video has disappeared from YouTube

Rick Astley’s velvety vocals have been banished from YouTube. Well, sort of. The “original” copy of Astley’s cheesy 1987 pop hit “Never Gonna Give You Up” — perhaps better known as the Rickroll video — has been pulled down from YouTube. It’s unclear why the video was removed from the service some seven years and 70 million views after it was first uploaded.

If you’ve never heard of this video, you must be new in these parts. In a time before Twitter and Facebook dominated the internet, people used to get their kicks by fooling you into watching Astley’s slick dance moves and listening to his dreamy voice. All hyperlinks were fair game.

“Never gonna say goodbye.”

It seems very unlikely that Rick Astley himself is to blame for letting…
