To quote: "Last night I attended the PlayStation Move event that was held in Seattle, WA. It was a great night filled with good food, mixed drinks, and of course some sweet giveaways.
I also messed around with the PlayStation Move, got a nice confirmation that there will be a Socom 4 Beta (thanks Jill Webber), and I also got a nice close look at the Playstation Move tech demo.
If you would like to take a look at last night's festivities go ahead and check out the videos below."

To quote: VidZone like it when we can give something to our users that is a little special, fortunately one of those times is now. So without further ado please Welcome... Tiffany Page.
Mercury record's brand new signing is a hot new artist coming out of London's music scene. The 23 yr old has been described as having "the sassy swagger of Chrissie Hyde, Shirley Manson's vampish purr and the hellion roar of Courtney Love"... for you that are unsure as to what that means, it means she is good... very good!
To give you a little taste of what her debut album will sound like, we have a free download of her current single 'Walk Away Slow' for your listening pleasure. You can download the track here then head over to VidZone to watch the video... Why wouldn't you?

196w ago - Sony's PlayStation 2 console turns ten years old today (yesterday in some parts of the world) and was first shown at a Japanese event in 1999.
Launch titles were limited, with Ridge Racer 5 and Street Fighter EX3 standing out. The machine went on to launch later that year in both the US and EU, hitting on October 26 and November 24 respectively.
To quote: "Ten years ago today on March 5th, 2000, Sony released the first version of the PlayStation 2 in Japan, which means the game-console is essentially turning 10 years old today.
The PS2 was later released in North America on October 26, 2000. With more than 140 million units sold as of September 2009, the PlayStation 2 has become the best-selling video game-console of all time and sales are surprsingly still going strong.
Believe it or not, several new games are scheduled to be released for the platform this year.
It's definitely a great milestone for such a revolutionary and innovative game-console that really changed the way we played video games. Happy 10th birthday to the PlayStation 2!"

203w ago - Xbox Product Management Senior Director David Hufford believes that Natal will give new life to the Xbox 360, and that there is no need to launch a new console.
To quote from a recent interview with Guardian.co.uk: "I think it's important to say that the Xbox 360 is the console of the long future for us.
There is no need to launch a new console, because we're able to give this console new life either with software upgrades or hardware upgrades like Project Natal," said David Hufford, senior director of Xbox product management in a briefing at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. "The Xbox 360 was designed for a long life, and I don't even know if we're at the midpoint yet."
This would mean that the Xbox 360 can survive a 10 year life span? Feel free to comment below!
