Watch Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida eat a very hot pepper

Executive swaps Nuclear Throne PS4 release date for a cup of milk.

The terrific video below features Vlambeer’s Rami Ismail, discussing Steam Early Access title Nuclear Throne.

Ismail suffers the agony of eating a very hot jabanero pepper like a champion, and is joined in the final minutes of the video first by the SCE Worldwide Studios boss and then by another member of his development team.

Ismail and Yoshida commit to a September PS4 release date for Nuclear Throne in return for a cup of milk to help ease their agony. We probably can’t hold them to it.

Don’t try this at home, people; messing with hot peppers and pepper extracts can be pretty dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing.

VG247 trivia time: our publisher Pat is very keen on hot peppers and hot pepper videos. I keep trying to make him upload some videos of his own. If Hot Pepper Gaming hadn’t stitched this idea up tight I’d probably try to talk him into a new podcast.
