Hooray for anything: Video game themes hit iGoogle


Are you one of the eight people who actually uses iGoogle? Good news for you, then, as Google is working with video game publishers, like Nintendo, Capcom and Activison Blizzard, to produce custom themes for the site. (Two minutes pass.) I just turned on this Street Fighter IV theme, and the chances of me using iGoogle just went up by 100 percent. So, job done, Google.

My one complaint: they have FIFA 09 but not Pro Evolution Soccer 2009? Are they having a laugh? Anyone who knows anything about football (soccer) knows that PES is the superior game, despite the lack of certain official kits.

I don’t know, we’re all gamers here, thought you might get a kick out of seeing Donkey Kong, Final Fantasy and whatnot atop your homepage.
