XBOX stuff from E3

XBOX stuff from E3

Microsoft has unveiled a bunch of XBOX related news at this year’s E3, here is a quick summary: XBOX is getting a YouTube App! Finally!!! The only reason I ever need to hook my laptop up to my TV is to show somebody a YouTube video. I always wished that the console had an app to play YouTube videos and now it will. Awesome.

Halo: Combat Evolved, Evolved.

There is an article on arstechnica regarding Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary – a remake of the original Halo: Combat Evolved updated with graphics from today.

Sony E3 conference roundup

Here is a highlight from Sony’s E3 conference: To start Jack Trenton got on stage with a peach shirt that clashed with his blue tie that didn’t go well with his suit.  Oh, and he apologized for the PSN outage – even though they clearly have not cleaned up their act yet.

Craptivision at it again: More WoW mounts for purchase

I just got sent this link: http://us.blizzard.com/store/details.xml?id=1100001495 25 dollars?  Sigh.  Activision Craptivision strikes again! Worst thing about all this, is that they will make MILLIONS of dollars on this because way too many losers will buy this. So then Activision will do it again, and again, until they completely devalue World of Warcraft and its franchise completely.  (See: Guitar...
