115w ago - With news of the 8.9 magnitude earthquake and tsunamis in Japan, several Sony factories are currently closed as a result of the disaster.
To quote from Engadget (linked above): "Sony and Toyota have both stopped operations in their factories due to damage. Tragically, one Honda worker lost his life after a wall collapsed, while several Panasonic workers are said to have suffered minor injuries.
It remains to be seen exactly what impacts this will have on consumers, but Sony's closed factories were responsible for the production of Blu-ray discs and batteries, while the numerous automotive shutdowns could result in short-term shortages. This bad news sent stocks downward, with German share prices for Sony dropping 2.5 percent and Honda 4.5 percent.
We're still watching with concern to see what other impacts the resultant tsunamis could have, but for now we'll keep hoping for the best."

170w ago - Today THQ's Global Brand Manager Clint Chapman has revealed that a Darksiders PS3 demo will be hitting PSN this week.
To quote: It's been over a month since Darksiders released with near-universal critical praise, and the team at Vigil Studios is still hard at work. On Thursday, Vigil releases a demo for Darksiders.
This isn't your typical demo, however. It packs an unprecedented 90 minutes of gameplay, encompassing the entire first dungeon of the game: the Twilight Cathedral.
I had a chance to talk to Vigil's Creative Director and comic book legend, Joe Madureira (Joe Mad) -- along with composers Mike Reagan and Cris Valesco -- to get some more info on the demo.
Now that Darksiders has been out for a few weeks, what do you think about the fans' reactions to the game?
Joe: We are incredibly excited to finally get Darksiders into people's hands! The response has been fantastic. We already have armies of ravenous fans clamoring for a sequel, and that's a dream come true for us.
For Vigil, the development of Darksiders was almost as epic a journey...
