Those Nintendo Amiibo figures have been in the news a lot lately. This time, the story centers around a Samus action figure that recently sold for $2,500 on eBay due to the fact that it has two arm cannons instead of one, making it highly collectible. It is still in the original packaging, sealed up as it was the day it was purchased new for a heck of a lot less than the winning bidder just paid. Our guess is that it would have gone for a lot more had the media discovered it before the bidding ended.

The online porn giant has been trying to get into the eSports business for a while now, but was having trouble with the fact its name, um, has the word “porn” in it. This looks like a decent compromise. The word “porn” isn’t on their shirts or in their branding but, well, everyone still gets it.
