202w ago - SCEA PR Manager Eric Levine has revealed alongside a video that MLB 10 The Show is pitching in to support Cancer research through Stand Up To Cancer.

To quote: As we approach the MLB All-Star break, I'd like to tell you all about an important partnership that SCEA is involved in this summer.

We are teaming up with Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) and Major League Baseball (MLB) to aid in the fight against cancer.

Beginning June 13 through July 10, for every copy of MLB 10 The Show purchased for PS3 in US retail stores, SCEA will donate $10 of its proceeds to SU2C to fuel research centered on getting new treatments to patients quickly and saving lives.

With Father's Day approaching in just over a week, MLB 10 The Show provides the perfect gift for the baseball fanatic dad in your family.

Not only will fans get the most authentic and realistic sports game around, but it will also allow them to join the ever-growing SU2C community to raise awareness and support for cancer research.

Major League Baseball is a founding partner of SU2C and has been continuing to support in the years since. We're thrilled to join...
 

Controller Modifications: Cheating is the Cancer of Online Gaming

282w ago - One day, many years ago, a programmer playing Halo: Combat Evolved became frustrated by his lack of skill.

He died over and over again, so rather than practice until he could hold his own, he - as many programmers do - asked himself how could automate the experience. And thus, the infamous AimBot was born.

AimBots have been a thorn in the sides of many noble gamers for almost a decade. Talentless players have used them to bring misery upon their innocent foes; foes primarily out to have a good time themselves.

Unfortunately for the honest among us, AimBots are the least of our worries now. A plague of modded controllers have now entered circulation among gamers. These controllers are used to center on a target's head, pull the trigger, and move on.

Others are used to make the buttons easier and faster to push, or are modified with a rapid-fire button (like an old SNES controller) to make mowing down hordes of foes incredibly easier.

Included with one product description was: Everyone has been asking for a Rapid Fire that was "TRULY" universal, and contained our famous Rapid Fire for Halo 3, Call of Duty 4, and our new, first released, undetectable Rapid Fire for Call of Duty 5 World at War.

Mobiles 'not brain cancer risk'

324w ago - Mobile phone use does not raise the risk of brain tumours, a Japanese study suggests.

The research is the first to look at the effects of hand set radiation levels on different parts of the brain.

Tokyo Women's Medical University found no increased risk of the three main types of brain cancer among regular mobile phone users.

The study, comparing 322 brain cancer patients and 683 healthy people, appears in British Journal of Cancer.

The cancer patients had one of the three most common types of brain tumour - glioma, meningioma or pituitary adenoma.

The researchers rated each subject according to how many years they had been using a mobile phone, and how long they spent talking on it each day.

They studied the radiation emitted from various types of mobile phone, and placed them into one of four categories relating to radiation strength.

And they also analysed how each phone was likely to affect different areas of the brain.

Lead researcher Professor Naohito Yamaguchi said: "Using our newly developed and more accurate techniques, we found no association between mobile phone use and cancer, providing more evidence to suggest they don't cause brain cancer."
