American rapper Deandre Cortez ‘Soulja Boy’ Way has made a not-so-subtle return to the gaming industry – this time, releasing yet another console that looks to be a knock-off of the handheld PS Vita.

Despite the sudden disappearance of the rapper’s previous consoles in late December (due to possible legal action from Nintendo), Soulja Boy is once again pumping out the products, with his latest release suspiciously resemblant of Sony’s PS Vita.

However, the device’s specs aren’t exactly the same as its progenitor; in fact, the new ‘SouljaGame Handheld’ boasts a screen resolution of merely 480×272 (as investigated by DualShockers) – the same as the PlayStation Portable handheld console released in 2005.

The device is currently marked down at half price as of January 13, sitting at $99.00 (as opposed to a $200.00 price point). Additionally, Soulja Boy’s website advertises a larger console called the ‘Soulja Game,’ which comes with a set of controllers similar to those of the PlayStation 3. 

While this product cannot be accessed through the site’s thumbnail, it could be on its way very soon – provided that Soulja Boy doesn’t get hit with another lawsuit from Sony in the interim.

The rapper was apparently met with legal action due to his earlier product line in December 2018, which included a series of knock-off, rom-hacked Nintendo consoles that could be purchased for half of his asking price on websites like Amazon and Aliexpress.

While Soulja Boy’s current gaming fare is quite limited, he continues to offer such devices as the ‘SouljaPad’ and the ‘SouljaPod’ earphones, among other products.

Amouranth exposes erobb’s bizarre Twitch chat logs

Twitch star Kaitlyn ‘Amouranth’ Siragusa revealed some of the weirdest messages she gets from her viewers, including fellow streamer Eric ‘erobb221’ Robbins.

On January 19, the popular ASMR streamer was reviewing a slew of unban requests from users who were muted from talking on her channel.

During the broadcast, Amouranth noticed how Tyler1’s brother, erobb, was in the chat, which caused her viewers to request a rundown of his chat logs.

After some convincing, Amouranth decided to give her audience what they wanted – and the messages he sent were some of the wildest of the bunch.

Amouranth is one of Twitch’s most popular streamers.

“So, the first time he talked to me was in 2018 with a bunch of smiley faces,” she revealed, scrolling way back up. “Wow.”

From there, the messages got a bit stranger in 2020, with erobb asking to make an appearance on her podcast, claiming the idea could be fun.

A bit later, erobb called Amouranth his “favorite streamer,” accompanied by some emojis. The most bizarre comments, however, came in early 2021.

“You got any socks? Around?” she read the remarks. “I like your socks so much, they look so good.”

Speechless, Amouranth could hardly read the final message where Robbins wrote he was moving to Texas and the two should hang out. She did, however, leave a blistering remark to scold the streamer with sarcasm.

“Damn, that sounds like someone I want to hang out with, chat,” she joked. “Holy shit. Sock connoisseur such as himself. Such a high caliber, top-tier.”

Erobb wanting socks is a bit of an odd request.

It’s unclear why exactly erobb was asking the streamer for her socks, or what he wanted to accomplish – but given Siragusa’s popularity, it’s unlikely that this is the worst series of messages she’s ever received in her time on Twitch.

Nonetheless, it was incredibly strange, if not bizarrely hilarious, going to show that it’s not just viewers who can be guilty of sending weird messages to streamers – it can be other Twitch stars, too.
