But where's Kate? - After missing out on any information on the "Lost" videogame at E3, the trailer for it debuted this week at Comicon. Jack, Sawyer and Locke are shown in the clip but judging from the video, there's no Kate. What's up with that?!? I can live without whiny ass Charlie in a "Lost" videogame, but no Kate? I don't think so. Head here http://www.gametrailers.com/player/22761.html to take a peek at the trailer.
Snake? Snake! - Konami reps at Comicon let Kotaku.com writers in on the possibility that the Metal Gear Solid Anniversary Collection might make its way over to the U.S. The collection of games and one DVD (Metal Gear PS, Metal Gear 2 Solid Snake PS, Metal Gear Solid PS, Metal Gear Solid 2 Sons of Liberty PS2, Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater PS2, Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops PSP, Metal Gear Saga DVD, The Document of Metal Gear Solid 2 PS2) was originally scheduled to be released only in Japan but now things are looking brighter for an American release sometime in the near future.
Can I get $50 for a game instead? - Internet rumors are floating around about a $50 price drop for the Xbox 360. While the rumors are completely unsubstantiated, pictures of a WalMart circular with the 360 priced at $349.99 are making the rounds. This makes me wonder - if the 360 warranty is retroactive, how about the price? I could use the extra $50 on Bioshock.
Sony says "Screw You!" - Remember that PS3 pricedrop? Well, don't get too excited because it won't last. The price cut is only for the 60G models, which Sony is phasing out to make way for its 80G model that will sell for $600. I certainly appreciate more memory, but I'm not even close to using what I have on my puny 360 hard drive. Why not do like MS and make it one of many options?
