224w ago - Update: Gadget Show head Jason Bradbury has also [Register or Login to view links] that PlayStation Move will launch this September, to quote: ".. another thing I was meaning to say. Sept for Playstation Move!!! I'm sure of it. Can't say why. Just.. September 2010."

Today Engadget.com reports that Canadian retailer [Register or Login to view links] has priced Sony's upcoming PlayStation Move Motion Controller at $59.99, however, the premature listing now appears to be mysteriously removed.

Sony previously stated that the pricepoint of a PlayStation Move starter kit will be around $100 US and will include a PlayStation Eye camera, a game and a Move controller... meaning the listing above likely referred to a single Move controller.

To quote: Sony's been pretty fuzzy on pricing for the PlayStation Move - we've only really heard "under $100" for the full package with controller and camera - but it looks like the numbers are starting to solidify, as Gamestop Canada has the controller itself now listed for $59.99.

How that number will translate into a US price is obviously up in the air, but Sony's MSRPs tend to be the same or similar across the US and Canada, so we'd say we've...

249w ago - This weekend Bethesda's Sr. Community Manager Gstaff has [Register or Login to view links] that the French Canadian save file PS3 patch for Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition is now online.

To quote: "The patch will allow the GOTY re-release of Bethesda's wasteland wandering sim to recognize save files generated by Fallout 3 sans accolades.

As a Bethesda community manager helpfully points out, your old save files will only show up if there are new saves (GOTY) present - if you only have old saves, start a new game and, you know, save.

If you have in excess of 130 save files, you'll have to delete older ones in order for the new ones to be displayed.

Oh, and one more thing: If your saves are taking a long time to load you might want to resave them and back up or remove the old ones."

For your game saves from Fallout 3 to work with Fallout 3 GOTY, make sure your versions match up.

If they don't match up (US disc to US disc, UK disc to UK disc, etc) you're going to run into compatibility issues.

To quote: A bill modeled after the [Register or Login to view links] in the U.S. was introduced in Canada last year but died before it could be passed when the government called an election.
