236w ago - Today Wal-Mart has started selling pre-owned video games in many of its US retail locations.

Apparently the chain promises that each pre-owned game is polished, tested and inspected prior to its re-sale.

To quote: "US supermarket giant Wal-Mart has begun selling pre-owned games for the first time.

The ASDA parent has previously installed trade-in kiosks in its stores - a move which has been followed by the likes of Best Buy and the UK's very own GAME.

Now, however, Wal-Mart has also launched a standalone in-store pre-owned section - suggesting its kiosk experiment has been a success.

According to the firm's Web site, each pre-owned game the grocer handles will be 'polished, tested and inspected prior to shipping'."

246w ago - Update: Courtesy of caliblue15 comes more 'proof' screens on BluerayCenter.com, who is also reporting that apparently it can only be played at certain times (ala Fat Princess).

Today various Web sites, including TheGamerAccess.com (linked above), are reporting that the MAG (Massive Action Game) BETA for PlayStation 3 has begun.

To quote: "I just signed onto the PlayStation Network planning to hop onto Killzone 2, when I noticed something very interesting while viewing my friends list. One of the users on my friends list was playing the MAG Beta.

I will not release any information as to who this person is, but I will tell you that he/she is an employee for Sony. Because he/she works for Sony, this version of the Beta could be available only to a select few industry employees, but this could also mean that the MAG Beta is right around the corner."

That being said, if anyone else can confirm the news feel free to comment below!
