192w ago - To follow-up on the previous rumor, today a leaked Toys R Us ad is pointing at a $50 Nintendo Wii price drop to $199 this month.
To quote: "While the Walmart listing we saw didn't put a price tag on the Wii--currently still at its launch price of $249 USD--the Toys R Us version does, pegging the new MSRP at $199.
And that's with Wii Sports included, not a stripped down package. The ad is purportedly from the end of September, due to hit the week of the 27th according to the tipster that forwarded a shot our way.
That's a week earlier than we were expecting based on the Walmart tip we received, but still not official in any capacity.
If accurate, that would mean a price drop announcement from Nintendo sometime within the next two weeks, possibly during the Tokyo Game Show."
195w ago - New information has been released on the various gadgets or 'toys' you will be able to play with in the upcoming game from Ubisoft, Assassin's Creed II, as follows:
Coins - Assassin's Creed II will feature an economic system allowing you to apparently pickpocket anyone you see and buy extra knives and other objects throughout the game. Ezio also has the ability to throw some coins into the crowd and watch people scramble to pick them, allowing a very juicy time to escape.
Poison - Ezio will be able to acquire poison to use on his hidden blades. The poison eventually kills the target (after a minute or so), but until such a time, the target goes insane, and will babble with madness, trash around and lash out at people and guards.
Smoke Bombs - These were first seen in a preview the developers of the game created at which time they used them to blind the guards and quickly run away.
The toys can also be combined in various ways. Poison a guard and have a crowd of people gather around to watch the show. Then throw some coins on the ground and watch them scramble to pick them up while crazy-pants beats them to a pulp. This creates a nice little distraction, allowing you to sneak past the guards.
These toys are confirmed as being available, in addition...

282w ago - Thousands of people will be unwrapping their shiny new gadgets at Christmas but one British artist and engineer is hoping his creation will find its way under trees in time for the next festive period.
Andrew Fentem has worked on innovative human computer interfaces for some time, after beginning his career in military research and development, specifically missiles.
His work today is part-art, part hobby, part business venture.
His latest creation, the Fentix Cube, is generating a lot of interest from toy manufacturers and buzz on the internet, based on a few clips he put on YouTube.
"Because of absurd level of interest generated by YouTube everyone wants the device," he says. "I'm being bombarded by toy firms from Korea."
A small plastic cube with playful lights, it could be mistaken for a mass market throwaway toy manufactured by the million in the Far East.
But the colourful exterior masks a combination of innovative technologies that have propelled Apple's iPhone and Nintendo's Wii to huge success this year.
The cube contains a large battery, an array of LEDs and crucially three accelerometers which can detect the pitch and yaw of the device, and sensors on the inside surface for touch control.
