A big ‘Happy Birthday’ is in order for PlayStation’s Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars (phew, trying saying that ten times fast), and developer Psyonix is celebrating by giving out gifts instead of taking them. For a limited time, SARPBC will be available on the PlayStation Network for the low, low price of $4.99.
The game will be available at that reduced, happy-birthday price beginning October 15 and continuing until October 29. That’s two whole weeks of celebration. Wonder what they’ll do for the second anniversary?
If you haven’t already hopped on to PSN to download the game, you should. It’s a whole lot of Battle-Car fun. And they’re acrobatic. And Rocket-powered. You can’t go wrong with that.

Despite the fact that the Nintendo DSi just came out earlier this year, there’s already rumors circulating that a better, more powerful Nintendo portable console is in the works.

So, there’s no confirmation from Nintendo that the Wii is going down in price. In fact, everything we’d heard until now is that the Wii is not going to go down in price no matter what the other Big Boys are doing with their next gen consoles. But in business, like in life, there are no never-nevers and no absolutes. So, while Nintendo may have believed that their Wii was the perfect price, they may have changed their minds.
Bottomline: Both Walmart and Toys R Us are reporting a $50 price drop for the Wii console, bringing it down to a …read more

The latest PlayStation Portable update from Sony is likely to disappoint many. Considering the update labeled itself with the promising title of v6.00, nothing was revolutionary enough to warrant such a misleading firmware number. Alas, those at Sony felt that a splash of color was enough to make a few dreams come true. And hey, maybe for some it’s a bag of chips and more.
The full content update found in v6.00:
For those of you looking to customize your XMB (XrossMediaBar), a few new colors will be added under the Theme Settings. These new theme colors can be used on PSP …read more
If you’re the type that wants more more more when it comes to your video games and relishes the notion of downloadable content, then there’s potential bad news for you: There will likely be no DLC for Halo 3: ODST. During PAX 2009, Bungie made it clear that DLC is not in the cards for the shooter game. Why? Well, mostly because they’re working on “another huge game.”
Speaking to Eurogamer, Bungie’s own Brian Jarrard stated:
“The number one question these days is whether we’re going to do DLC for ODST and add more Firefight maps. Right now we honestly have no …read more
