No Backwards Compatibily for 40gb Version of PS3 In Europe  - It's official! there is no backwards compatibility for the 40gb European model of the PS3, I assume the US version will be the same although this has not been confirmed, and with current development issues with PS3 games you would have it would be a must.

Heelys Reveals The Gaming Shoe? - If there were a competition to make the ugliest shoes in the world. And if that competition had an entry that was so good at being ugly it was disqualified to give the other entries a chance: The Gamer would be that entry. Kotaku can't figure out which they find more disconcerting.

Achievements Sell Games  - A new study by a San Diego-based research group has found that games with a higher volume of "accomplishments" generally sell better and receive better critical reception than their less goal-oriented counterparts.

Great job of editing, hoZt. And to answer Cpt Lazybones's question, I'd say right now that it's Nariko from Heavenly Sword.

Miles's favorite is the yellow square from Adventure.

I have yet to listen to the show, darn Zune. I'll try to listen now since it was supposedly so funny. I'm gonna feel like an even bigger geek for saying this but, the hottest would have to be Kasumi from DOA in her school girl outfit. Man I would love Halo's save film feature for that.

I was reading some playstation forums and they were complaining about warhawk coming with the headset saying they didnt want it to become like the xbox 360 with the annoying people always speaking shit in games.

I see the complaint I hate listening to some people on the 360 but when it is used properly , voice adds alot to the multiplayer experience and tactics .

I did not even start this tangent.....

Right now it has to be Alyx Vance from Half Life 2, but if you factor in the physics then it would have to be Kasumi from DOA. smile

To bad your Zune is having issues. The new Zunes are out, but they look as old fashioned as the current ones. Microsoft is behind the iPod by at least a couple of years.

It is too bad more people do not use the chat feature in Warhawk. It has a good proximity chat. I wish the 360 could use any bluetooth headset.

You've been playing Halo way to much, remember Bling do not try re-enact any of the stunts, rampages or killings in the game in real life. Trained virtual actor were used to carry out you murderous actions, and they can respawn and you cannot.

Alyx Vance is a lovely bit of crumpet.

But...

Aries, Tifa and Yuffie off of Final Fantasy VII would be something else if Square got there fingers out and remade it. Also, a hot french bird off of ridge racer 4, bu you hardly see her - it's like comic-stripey.
