The Mole: Let the Madden jinx go into effect

The latest news and rumors in the world of gaming.

Alexander getting ready for a horrible season - The annual Madden cover boy hex continues. This year's victim? NFL MVP Shaun Alexander. The over/under on his season ending injury? Week 3.

PS2 drops in price, nobody cares - Sony has announced that it has lowered the price of the Playstation 2 by $20 to $129.99 effective immediately. Forgive my lack of enthusiam but to date, over 100 million PS2's have shipped worldwide. Is there anybody on this planet with a TV that doesn't own one? And if they really want to help financially strapped people out, lower it to $50. Which is about the price I can pay for a used one.

Hello Mr. Cipriani - Rockstar will be releasing its PSP hit "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories" on the Playstation 2 June 6th. If that weren't cool enough, its going to sell for a measly $20. This almost makes up for the news of Rockstars upcoming Table Tennis game.

Joanna Dark update - Microsoft has announced new downloadable content for "Perfect Dark Zero". The updates will load automatically (as usual) when you insert your PDZ disc and include eight new bot personalities and four new multi-player maps. The new bot personas include Judge Bots (attacks the player with the most kills) and Bully Bots (attacks the player with the least kills) among others. No word yet on a Cleaner Bot (runs around picking up bullet casings).
