GAMING DAILY: Defective Samus Amiibo Sells For Some Serious Cash on Ebay, and PlayStation Spain Releases a Cryptic Teaser

Whether you’re still trying to catch your breath after that new Batman: Arkham Knight trailer released this morning, or from all of the food you consumed this weekend, we’re here to relieve you with some awesome gaming tidbits from the day. In today’s Gaming Daily, a Redditor sells defective Samus Amiibo for a pretty penny on eBay, some serious changes arrived with Destiny’s recent update, and Spanish PlayStation Blog teases “Sony’s best kept secret.”

defective Samus

Remember that dual wielding Samus Amiibo a Redditor received from Best Buy last week? Well, the lucky owner just made $2,500.00 off of the defective toy on eBay. Yes, really.

After realizing the flaw, Adam Truesdale (“Adamantium126” on Reddit) snagged a normal version of the figure and placed the dual cannoned Samus on eBay. Luckily for him, it only took a matter of days before it sold. It seems people will do anything to get their hands on a one-of-kind item.

Xur Destiny

Big changes made in Bungie’s latest Destiny update.

If you’ve been spending most of your gaming hours raiding, exploring, and striking as a guardian, this one’s for you. Bungie released the full patch notes for today’s update, and boy have some changes been made.

In addition to exotic weapon tweaks and another Templar fix that seems pretty routine by now, the post revealed that players will now be able to purchase upgrade materials from the Vanguard and Crucible Quartermasters. This is HUGE, especially for those who’ve experienced the tedious activity of farming for Relic Iron, Sprit Bloom and the like.

Also, Xur–the elusive NPC who sells exotics at the tower a few days a week–will now sell exotic shards, which according to the notes will be used to upgrade the final node of exotics. These bad boys will cost a grand total of 7 Strange Coins.

Ehrmahgerd, what the heck is Emagon?

With the PlayStation Experience days away, the Spanish PS Blog has revealed a teaser for one of “Sony’s Best Kept Secrets.” Prepare your butts! The hype train is coming.

For those who don’t understand a word of Spanish, the post stresses the importance of PlayStation’s birthday and the PSone in particular. As of right now, it seems nobody knows what the company is alluding to with the above clip entitled “Emagon.” Luckily we won’t have to wait too long to find out as the video reveals that more will be announced December 5, which just so happens to be the day before the huge PlayStation event.
