To quote: Here first HIGH RES picture of ARGON 13 wires installed on a D2C PAL WII!!!
Many customers are asking in these days if ARGON is or not compatible with US and JAP WII... well teorically it works without any problem on them, this because all consoles have the same DVD controller, BUT the 100% confirmation will arrive this weekend, when we can test two consoles that are in arrival from US and JAP.
317w ago - Are you a Canadian who was looking to purchase a new 40 GB PS3, but are little tight in the wallet from days spent on beer or women? Well look no further, because Dell is offering the console for $399.99. You must be reading this thinking "Where's the deal, isn't that the original price?"
Dell is offering it at that price, but it also includes Spider-Man 3 on Blu-Ray, Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction (check out our review) and a Startech 6 ft. HDMI cable. Original price, yes, but it does come with the free game, movie, and cable- and you can't beat that.
Forming the perfect Rock Band can be very difficult to say the least, but Electronic Arts is doing their part to make it easier on your wallet by offering the guitar, drums, and microphone bundle at $169.99. While that deal is nice, we have something even better.
Newegg.com will save you ten dollars more, as they have the Xbox 360 and PS3 bundles for just $159.99. Be aware that Rock Band doesn't come out for another couple weeks, but you can preorder it, and so far this is the best price we have seen for the bundle.

323w ago - Video game violence is, as ever, a hot topic, and Gamasutra and GameProducer.net asked former Thrill Kill and current Sony producer Harvard Bonin, Bizarre Creations' Peter O'Brien, Stainless Games' Ben Gunstone, and Gas Powered Games' Frank Rogan to discuss legislation, responsibility, and mature games.
Thrill Kill & Ethical Censorship
Said Bonin, "This particular topic is very timely, and also very, very complicated. As the publishing producer of a notable fighting game [Thrill Kill, pictured] that was canceled years ago I believe I have unique insight. Unlike the recent Manhunt saga it was a business and ethical decision - not a governmental censorship issue."
325w ago - Winamp, first launched in 1997, quickly became a staple for every MP3-loving music listener back during the days when digital music files were a novelty. Since then, millions have downloaded the MP3 and media playback software. A recent Comscore report says that over 60 million people worldwide actively use the free product (every month). While the music and entertainment nature of the software has continued to focus heavily on Windows-based users, the upcoming 10th year anniversary of the product adds new options that continue to embrace its PC-centric nature but expands its reach onto to gaming consoles.
