The competition in the video-game market is intense, even when it comes to console-induced injuries. You've got Wiinjuries, Guitar Hero arm strains, and now, "PlayStation palmar hidradenitis." That's the name given to some intense sores a 12-year-old Swiss girl developed on the palms of her hands after playing her Playstation for several hours a day. Ironically, hidradenitis is more commonly found on the soles of kids' feet who take part in heavy physical activity, like running. While doctors and Sony both say this is the first case of its kind they've seen, don't be surprised if politicians start railing against sore palms as another danger video games pose to kids.
