272w ago - Bond. James Bond. I am a fan, always have been. I've even dabbled in a Martini or two based on nothing more than that they are the drink of choice in the movies. They're good by the way.

274w ago - Originally scheduled to ship on October 21, EA has just announced that they're pushing up Dead Space's release date.
The sci-fi horror title will now ship October 14 on the Xbox 360 and PS3, a full week before the original date. (The PC version will still ship on the 21 - sorry PC gamers.)
This marks the second time Dead Space's release has been pushed forward, as the game was first slated to release on Halloween.
One of the most anticipated games of the year, Dead Space takes place aboard an immense mining ship, the USG Ishimura. It has come into contact with alien life in a distance star system, and when communications with earth are suddenly cut off, engineer Isaac Clarke is sent to repair them. Obviously, things don't go as planned and he finds himself thrust into the middle of a living nightmare, fighting to survive.

277w ago - Note: Please take this with a grain of salt. This has not been 100% confirmed, we are going to keep it as a rumor.
As you probably already know, there will be a Home Expanded BETA opening it's doors to a group of lucky PS3 owners by the end of the summer. While European Playstation owners have received confirmation E-mails as well as previous Home BETA testers, the rest of us are stuck wondering when we will receive our shot to expierence the revolutionary social gaming application. Well, I think I may have the answer you looking for.
Today at 7:50 PM (EST) I dialed the number for SCEA Consumer Support. I was greeted by a woman named Betty. I asked Betty "When is the Home expanded beta going to be released?". Silence struck my ear for two or three seconds. Then Betty exclaimed, "August 26!". Could this be true? I pinched myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming (don't worry I wasn't).
I asked Betty the question again and she replied with the same answer. Suddenly, Betty said something suspicious. She said "Oops!". As I thought in my head what she meant by oops, I started to get nervous. Betty went on to tell me that she wasn't suppose to tell me that the beta was to come out on August 26th.
After hanging up with Betty I called SCEA several more times. The...
278w ago - Recently announced at E3, the 80GB PlayStation 3 finally has a release date in the UK, 29th August 2008, and will presumably be the same date across Europe. The new 80GB model will phase out the now older 40GB model while sharing the same features (or lack of) at the same price.
The PlayStation 3 80GB model does NOT feature:
* Backwards Compatibility with PS2 Games
* Memory Stick Card Readers
* SACD Playback
* Ethernet Cable
* 4 USB Ports, (The PS3 80GB model features 2)
It is also being bundled with a DualShock 3 rather than a SIXAXIS too, so if you were considering buying a PS3 then hold out just a little longer and grab yourself a great deal, and with the new platinum range which has just been released you'll be able to pick up some get PS3 titles for a decent price.
