At a private pre-Tokyo Game Show event in Shinjuku, Japan, a few IGN Editors and I crowded into a small demo room at a Japanese game studio and gathered around a row of televisions on a table to play an upcoming PlayStation 4 game while wearing surround sound headsets. I can't tell you about that game yet, but what I can tell you is that I played it during an actual earthquake.

More Mega 9.0 Earthquakes Are Coming, Study Says

No one should be surprised if a magnitude-9 megaquake erupts off America's West Coast - or anywhere else around the Pacific Ocean's "Ring of Fire," for that matter, NBC News reported. That's the upshot of a study in October's issue of the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America: Researchers say that computer models of future seismic activity, plus a check of past activity going back thousand of years, suggest most of the Pacific's earthquake zones are capable of generating shocks at least as strong as magnitude 9 every 10,000 years on average.
