    Those will be out the same day, 8/1 launches the MH3 Black Bundle, and separately black wiimotes, black nuchucks, and the black and white classic controllers.

    Good thing about the controllers is they are region free, I expect we will get this stuff all next year some time as part of a slow hardware "refresh" since sales in the US are still record breaking month to month

    But my god, Kojima doing Castlevania?!?!?!?! I can hardly wait to see my favorite series finally get just the push it needs as it has struggled trying to evolve into 3D.

    I'm just a little worried about the fact that it's not connected to any other games in the series. I don't know if that just means it's literally not connected to a specific previous entry, or if that means no Belmonts, no Dracula's curse, etc.
    At least we know with Kojima at the helm the new CV will not be lacking for story!

    The first thing I actually noticed was the character art direction-nice to see Castlevania male characters not look like androgynous man-women.

    I love the way the concept art for the MGS series looked, and it's good to see this game is following a similar path (at least the one piece of concept art I saw was in the MGS style).

    I'm extremely excited for this game. I just played through Super Castlevania IV, and I think it might be time to pull out SotN soon.

    Oh wow! That is so cool! Was that intentional, or did someone just line those pics up after the fact?

    Either way, it's cool. I'm a big Conan fan and am thrilled that he's on earlier now. I'll be watching him much more now than ever before!

    Picked up Wii Motion + and Grand Slam Tennis today, it is so freaking awesome.

    I feel like I am playing competitive in school again, I took the game online and won a match with no lag 3-0. Never once did M+ not do what I was doing, its like Wii Sports Tennis how it should be since it detected every move I made with my wrist and direction I was aiming.

    If you guys like Tennis you need to check this game out with the M+ add-on, I am online as markatisu

    I will not get to try it out till next week, but here is the first 10min of the Wii version if you want to see what its like.

    I am hearing the PSP and Wii versions are great (plus the Wii version comes with the old point and click Indy game as a bonus) but stay away from the PS2 version

    I've been playing the PSP version of the new Indy game, and I have to give a big thumbs down. The controls are so clunky, and they break levels up into several "missions" that are so short, you constantly feel like you're at loading screens, removing you from being immersed in the game play. I'm hoping the Wii version is good though......

    I upgraded mine to a 500GB drive about a month ago. It's real easy. The only thing to be careful with is removing the 4 screws from the drive cage. They're REALLY tight, and the screws will strip easily if you don't take care. I suggest using a set of pliers to loosen the 4 screws, and then remove them. The whole process of swapping the hard drive consists of:

    1. Pop off the plastic cover covering the hard drive bay
    2. Remove the blue screw you will see
    3. Slide and remove the hard drive cage
    4. CAREFULLY remove the 4 screws from the drive cage
    5. Remove old hard drive from cage and replace with the new one
    6. Replace the 4 screws back into the drive cage
    7. Insert and slide drive cage back into the PS3
    8. Replace the blue screw
    9. Replace the plastic drive bay cover

    Done! All in all, it should take between 5-10 minutes. The PS3 will detect a new drive and format itself when you turn it back on. Make sure to back up anything you want to keep before doing so. Game saves, media, etc. Don't bother saving game install data, as it won't copy back over, and you'll have to reinstall it anyway. Anything from your PSN store history can be re-downloaded.

    FYI to anyone considering getting the PS3. Amazon's gold box deal of the day today is the current standard 80GB PS3 for $349.99.

    In case no one is aware of this you can download the song, The Touch, for free if you have guitar hero world tour. It's the same one from the animated Transformers movie.

    That's pretty sweet, I love seeing old dusty Atari's.

    Anyone picking up Ghostbusters for the 360? I've heard mixed reviews so far.
    I loved growing up in the 80's....wish my kids someday could experience the same thing....

    So, thoughts on Ghostbusters yet? I'm picking it up for PS3, but I spent too much on Hordak yesterday, so I probably won't get it until next week.

    I'm picking up my copy after work today.

    Yesterday I got a nice prerecorded message from Dan Akroyd letting me know that my copy will be in at Gamestop today.
