Our Birthday Hunt Competition ended last night so no doubt you are all wondering whether you won the big prize or not.

For those of you who didn't find all five monkeys, here are the product pages where they were located:

The most difficult clue was the pink one, “Obscured”, and the easiest one was the red one, “Marsupial”. Eighty two percent of people who found at least one egg went on to find all five.

Now for the important part; who won the prizes?

Māori Language Week at Mighty Ape

Company

5 comments By Che

Ngā mihi nui. Ko tēnei Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori. It's Māori Language Week and at Mighty Ape we will be marking the occasion in several ways.

First of all, have you noticed anything different about our logo? Makimaki Toa is a name that we have created to represent Mighty Ape in te reo Māori.

The name is comprised of Makimaki meaning ape or monkey, and Toa meaning mighty, brave, champion, warrior, etc. Coincidentally “Toa” also means shop or store. We did consider other options for “Mighty” including kaha (strong), nui (big, great), and wewehi (awesome) but decided that toa was the best fit because it looked the part visually, and the double meaning of mighty and shop was perfect.

Company

2 comments By Che

COMPETITION CLOSED. Congratulations to our winner Bruce Macfarlane

We have introduced a convenient new payment method that is perfect for those of you who don't have credit cards (or prefer not to use them).

POLi is just like internet banking – you pay for your orders out of your regular cheque or savings account – BUT your payments are cleared instantly so your orders are ready to ship immediately. No more waiting overnight for your payment to go through!

How it works:

To use POLi place an order as normal then when you come to the payment page in the checkout select POLi as your payment method. You will then be prompted to select your bank, enter your login details, and confirm the payment. That's it. Simple.

Give your PS4 a Storage Boost

Games Computers

Add a comment By Andy

Reaching the upper limited of your beloved console's storage? The fix isn't as intimidating as you may think.

Back in the day, it was a pretty tedious task expanding the storage in your PS4. It would involve opening up the console and extracting the HDD that was hidden away inside. Thanks to some nifty updates from the team at Sony, it is nearly as simple as just plugging in a external storage device.

There are a couple specs that you need to hit with your Storage Device. It needs to be between 250GB and 8TB, and it needs to be USB 3.0 compatible.

It has to be noted that not all Hard-Drives are made equal. SSD storage devices and even SSHD Hybrid Drives will have an impact on how quickly your games will load, so definitely something to consider. In terms of performance/speed:
