Manchester United Youth Player Fosu-Mensah Isn't Impressed with His Face in FIFA 17

Good job he hasn't played PES

Timothy Fosu-Mensah has a bright future ahead of him, breaking into Manchester United's first-team alongside fellow youth talent Marcus Rashford under the watchful eye of the flat-faced Louis Van Gaal last season.

Should the PS4 Pro Have a UHD Blu-ray Player?

A moment of clarity

Sony took a bath on the PlayStation 3 just to get Blu-ray into as many homes as possible, so it's strange to see the company ignore the fledgling Ultra High-Definition Blu-ray format a decade later. Times have changed since the turbulent days of 2006, of course: streaming is, for many, their primary means of consuming media now...
