Sony's Mark Cerny: game developers have been calling for the PS4 since 2008 (video)According to the PlayStation 4's Lead Architect Mark Cerny, his team's biggest breakthrough wasn't in raw hardware power; it was something much more basic: conversation. At this week's New York City review event for the next generation game console, Cerny detailed the six-year journey to creating the PS4, and the surprisingly low tech revelation that could be the biggest difference between the new system and the PlayStation 3, which was notoriously difficult to program for.

U.S. regulator prepares crackdown on debt collectors
Vehicles travel near new houses which are under construction and for sale in San MarcosBy Emily Stephenson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Debt collectors using text messages and social media to pursue delinquent borrowers could come under new scrutiny as the U.S. consumer financial watchdog considers new rules as part of a crackdown on the collection industry. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau said on Wednesday that before it formally proposes any rules, it wants to hear how collectors verify borrowers' information and contact consumers. Among questions it is asking consumers, banks and the collection industry is whether there could be privacy concerns or other harm from communicating with debt collectors via text message, social media or other Internet-based tools. In recent months, regulators have warned debt collectors against misleading borrowers.

EU presidency proposes new weakening of EU car rules
New cars stand on a field outside the Audi factory in Ingolstadt near MunichBy Barbara Lewis BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Lithuania, holder of the EU presidency, has made a new proposal to weaken rules on how much carbon new cars can emit from 2020, in line with demands from Germany and its luxury manufacturers, EU diplomats said. The proposal is stoking anger in Brussels, where Germany's negotiating tactics are regarded as heavy-handed. The latest compromise would allow a phase-in of a 95 grams per kilometer (g/km) limit on auto carbon dioxide emissions until 2022 and increase the number of supercredits, a mechanism that gives companies more flexibility, the diplomats said. ...

Far-right rioters leave trail of destruction in Polish capital
By Marcin Goettig and Pawel Florkiewicz WARSAW (Reuters) - Polish police used rubber bullets on Monday to break up groups of masked far-right youths who threw firecrackers and set fire to cars when a nationalist march through the center of the capital turned violent. The march is an annual event to commemorate Poland's national independence day, and for the third year in a row it broke down into running battles in the middle of Warsaw between rioters and riot police. Prime Minister Donald Tusk said what should have been a holiday had been ruined by acts of aggression and violence.
