Sony today revealed that they have granted licensing agreements for some of their top games with four apparel companies. The result will be a slew of T-shirts, hats, boxers, even something called "loungewear" featuring the artistic stylings from such Playstation greats as God of War, Ratchet & Clank, Resistance Fall of Man, Heavenly Sword and Little Big Planet.
I can't friggin wait to lay about in my house wearing nothing more than a pair of LittleBigPlanet whitey-tighties under my silk God of War smoking jacket while I sip cognac and pass judgment on the gaming world.
IV Gear already has their list of games up, but no product pics yet.
So excited. List of companies and silly quotes on the jump.
