267w ago - It appears as if GottaDeal.com (linked above) has done it again, sleuthing out a "Doorbuster: Friday 5AM to Noon Only" Sears Black Friday flyer promoting two new Nintendo DS bundles.
According to the listing, Sears will be offering two new DS bundles as follows: One bundle includes an Ice Blue DS, a similarly colored case, and a copy of the original Brain Age. The other packs a Mario Red DS emblazoned with the Italian plumber's iconic "M" and a copy of New Super Mario Bros.
Nintendo had not responded to requests for comment concerning the bundles as of press time. It should be noted that after the metallic rose DS's special-edition run in November, Nintendo opted to add the hue to its burgeoning rainbow of standard-edition SKUs by the following May.
The Sears flyer lists the bundles as $149.99 each.
269w ago - I like getting my video games cheaper. Especially when I don't have to wait for three months till everyone else doesn't care about the game.
It looks like ToysRUs is trying to get an upper hand on pre-orders this year with Gears of War 2. The limited edition is listed on the site for $59.99 instead of the regular $69.99 found at many other retailers.
If you do add the shipping costs to the order, and the possibility of the retailer receiving the game late then you may have a problem, but considering the site is selling it for 59.99 I don't see why they wouldn't sell it for 10 dollars less at their stores which would eliminate the shipping problem.
On the other hand, Amazon Canada has been slashing off $5-6 price tags on many upcoming games such as LittleBigPlanet, Dead Space, and Fallout 3. Even though the $5 dollar difference doesn't seem like a big deal, you have to realize that these products are available for free shipping meaning in this scenario you actually save money....
270w ago - Just bought a PlayStation 3 console when I read the rumors of a PlayStation 4 coming out soon and all the mind blowing possibilities of the theoretically new console.
I could barely afford the PS3 much less worry about what its going to cost for a PS4. But, based on what Paul Holman (Sony Vice President of Technology) told TechEBlog in 2006, the PS4 will not be out until at least 2010.
Then there's the rumor that the future PS4 will use the same existing cell processor that the current PS3 uses, according to a Japanese tech news site PC Watch. I'm not sure about that because if this rumor does prove to be true, I'd be sorely disappointed.
For the most part, why invest in all these upgrades for the PS3 coming out soon only to purchase a PS4 which as we experienced with the PS3, having limited to no backwards playability again?
They just came out with a PS3 Bluetooth headset for the console, not to mention a possible controller that will function like the controllers of a Wii.
