Spore DRM put to the test: Rent, A, PC, Game?

Is Microsoft closing studios in favor of price cuts?: Wow, that actually makes sense, but it's seriously a flawed business plan.. good short term, but horrible long term.

SingStar's DRM is worse then Spore: This sounds... broken...

RUMOR: Microsoft unhappy with Price drop leak in UK:
It seems like in this industry almost everything gets leaked..

RUMOR: Nintendo to announce new products at fall conference: BETTER. BE. HARDCORE. GAMES.

Blend Games: The top 5 games that ned hype: Sounds about right.

How the PS3 can fight the cheaper Xbox 360 and Wii: Bundle #3 is bad, but the other two would be great.

Why the PS4 wont have a Blu-Ray Drive: This article is a truckload of Fail. First, if it were to have any Backwards compatibility, it would need one. The article talks about how HD Downloads will overtake Blu-Ray, then talks about how how the mainstream user isn't very tech-savy wont but a Blu-Ray player. No, people will go with disks because they are less complex then digital downloads. They also mention how people will not want rebuy movies they have on DVD, which is what people said about VHS-DVD.

Killzone 2 Preview: I want this, and soon....er then February.

Peter Moore: Sony didn't deliver on Emotion Engine and Killone 2: Isn't Killzone 2 not out yet?

It is time to publish games as Steam exclusives: Yeah, I can't disagree.

Is the iPhone becoming a legitimate platform?:
Sounds like it.

Is backwards compatibility still a factor: YES. I bought a PS3 because of it, and I am appalled that recently Sony has decided to phase it out. Microsoft isn't without blame either, with their Xbox 360 not even playing all of my 12 xbox games. Nintendo only lets you natively play the previous generation games, making you have to buy the rest.

Need for Speed Undercover car list: Cars Smarshes. I want good gameplay.

Google phone coming?: Let's hope not, because I feel it is a waste. Google should go for a different market.

Life with Playstation available now... sorta:
Odd, I wonder if it has to do with 2.43....?

White Knight Story coming December 2008.. in Japan:
Well, the JRPGs are coming...

Well, that sucked, it gave an error, and half the news disapeared... I guess that's what I get for taking like 12 hours to finish the news....
