Playstation Hacker "Settles" With Sony - Actually Kind Of Wins

The hacker (known as Geohot) that was originally responsible for cracking the PS3's security has gotten off scott-free! Well, not completely. Under the pressure of the Anonymous hacker threats, Sony were forced to settle with the hacker by making him consent to a permanent injunction against the information he had gathered. Considering he was taken to court by one of the largest companies in the world, I'd say that's about as light as a guy can get off!

Pokemon Black And White FINALLY Gets Global Link

A feature that was to be included as part of the original game, known as the "Global Link", is set to go live on wednesday. Among the features it will bring with it are the Global Battle Union aswell as the chance to connect your game to a PC which will feature a dream world based on the dreams of your Pokemon. I love me some Pokemon so I'll be checking this out regardless, but it doesn't sound terribly exciting...

Ugh, get out of my site!

Dead Rising 2 Remake To Feature Frank West As The Hero

Think of it as an alternate reality version of Dead Rising 2, featuring new psychos, new weapon combinations, new areas and a new checkpoint system (which if you've played Dead Rising 2 is mindblowing). It's unclear whether you'll gain the ability to jump on zombie's heads at some point, but if you do, I'm all over this!
