Game-related news roundup.
  • Sales of the Xbox 360 in Japan, in contrast to the rabid sold-out US, are "lackluster".

  • Long-time fans of the popular MMO Star Wars Galaxies are upset at major changes to gameplay and are reportedly leaving in droves.

It seems that there is software out there, that you can own, which lets you catalog your Hallmark collectible ornaments. I defecate you naught. Check out for yourself.
