    EA may cut prices on certain EA Sports titles

    Uh oh. A guy in a suit is saying that Electronic Arts is going to be slashing the prices on certain EA Sports titles, mostly for the PlayStation 2 although I’d expect some PC-version cuts in there as well. These are the "08" games too like NBA Live 08, Madden 08, and Tiger Woods 08. Fourteen games in all will be price-reduced. Analyst Evan Wilson says that "pre-holiday… Read More

    Redesigned, cheaper PS2 due out in 2008?

    Teenager Buys PS2, Gets Lotsa Cash

    eBay can be an interesting place. You never quite know what you’ll end up getting when placing a bid. This is the case of one British teen who bought a Playstation 2 off eBay, only to receive a package full of $90k worth of euros stacked inside. Talk about an awesome freak accident, considering the teenager only spent about $195 on the auction. But like all things good, a problem arose. Read More

    CrunchArcade: Pedal to the Metal


    A sad yet simple fact of life is that most of us won’t ever own, let alone drive, a Ferrari or Porsche. That doesn’t keep us from feeling the need for speed, and wanting to floor it while behind the wheel of a high performance auto. Racing games are almost better than shooters in pushing the limits of video game design. These racing simulations really show off the fast moving… Read More

    Freedom V Wireless Guitar Controller Review

    The Freedom V Wireless Guitar controller was developed by TAC (The Ant Commandos) for one of the biggest Playstation 2 hits ever, Guitar Hero. The game puts you on stage to rock out to classic tunes while strumming along and matching the on screen notes. The whole process is similar to Dance Dance Revolution, but a whole lot more fun (and a whole lot less homoerotic). In my opinion, Guitar Hero… Read More
