Microsoft, the leader in computer technology, has decided to celebrate its 25th anniversary by updating the ever faithful mouse. Microsoft brought back the SideWinder line and showed it off to everyone at the Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany.

It might have taken people a little bit to get used to the Nintendo Wii, but once they did they loved it. It is second on the top selling list selling over 10,000 consoles(Xbox 360 was first) Which explains why there are shortages of Wii accessories and parts.
Nintendo was hoping to fix this problem by expanding the production in June of this year. Two months later we notice that they haven’t seemed to follow through with this.
Many people usually shop at Best Buy for all things electronic. Why? Because they have everything. Whether it be TV’s, cameras, or gaming consoles. Unfortunately you are going to want to think twice before shopping with them next time. They decided that they wanted a piece of the gaming action and started to raise prices on the Xbox 360 without any warning.
Best Buy increased the price of several Xbox 360 accessories at $3 above the manufacturer suggested retail price raising suspicions that the retailer is hoping to make some extra money on increased sales expected from Halo 3. While technically legal in a free market society, retailers typically sell goods at or below the manufacturer suggested retail price.
We all heard the rumors that Sony was adding the rumbling pack to the new PS3 SIXAXIS controllers that will be releasing within the next few months. Whether or not these rumors are true is still to be determined as there are conflicting rumors running all over the net and sometimes it is hard to tell fact from fiction.
Early reports started when a report was issued from GamePro in which one executive made mention of a change in the SIXAXIS. This of course made people feel that Sony just might have figured out how to include it in their controller along with its motion sensitivity. Dave Karraker, Sony’s director of corporate communications stated, “We have not added rumble [to PS3], and have no announcements regarding this feature”.
