[News]

In another attempt to increase the 30% share that women occupy in the video game market, Nintendo has released a pink version of the DS Lite. As a father of 12-year-old girl , I am happy to see this, and have always encouraged video games in her life, so long as she is still physically active, and does well in school. I have actually seen her grades improve since the introduction of games in her life, particularily in science and math. Kudos, Ninetendo!

"Andre" has created a great web-based NES Emulator. Go check it out; the picture isn't huge, but the implementation is near perfect, and there is a good game selection. (Sadly, Duck Hunt is not on the list.) In the meantime, check out the Sonic flash game below. Enjoy!

I doubt any of you even remember who Earl Sheib is (hell, I don't, but I do remember my parents making reference to him), but needless to say he could paint your car for the possible forthcoming price of a PS3 game. Now although Kaz Hirai never comes out and says what the cost of games will be for the next-gen console, he certainly does try to soften any potential blow. Mr. Hirai, in an interview with the Official Playstation Magazine, said, "Generally Speaking, over the past twelve years or so, there has been a consumer expectation that disc-based games are maybe $59 on the high end to $39 on the low end. So, what I can say now is, I think it would be a bit of a stretch to think that we could suddenly turn around and say 'PS3 Games now $99.99.' I don't think consumers expect software pricing to suddenly double. So, the quick answer is that we want to make it as affordable as possible, knowing that there is a set consumer expectation for what software has cost for the past twelve years. That's kind of the best answer I can give you. So, if it becomes a bit higher than $59, don't ding me, but, again, I don't expect it to be $100." My butt hurts just thinking about it.

[Wii] [News]

Okay, okay. So its not the anti-christ, but it is every Nintendo fanboy's noctural emission: the Nintendo Wii. According to The Inquirer.net, a "French gaming website, Impact Virtuel, ici, claims it took an unnamed Nintendo executive out to lunch, got him sozzled and he revealed to them the "magic date" of October 30."

Ranked Battlefield 2 Server administrators received the following message at the end of May. I thought some of you may find this interesting and helpful..

"We have noticed an increase in behavior where leased servers are being used by clans solely to pad players stats, even to the extent where clans are institutionalizing rules that forbid normal play. Currently the favored method is for player admins to set rules where players must use either a knife or Pistol, players must revive each other, and players must not take flags. This creates environments where players gain stats unrealistically and creates an imbalance in the ranked server playing field. In our opinion, these players are breaking EA's Terms of Service, and we have begun taking action on the clans involved. However, clan coordination to this extreme requires us to create a long-term solution for this (separate from any scoring changes in 1.03). As a group, Ranked Partners included, we need to work together to aggressively crack down on any server that is found to be promoting stats exploiting..."
