    Anyone think the PS3 will have a price drop before xmas? My son wants one for his birthday next month but if they're going to drop in a few months I might see if I can hold him off until xmas since we already have a 360.

    xbox 360 at Amazon

    Does anyone know why amazon doesn't seem to have the $199 4GB xbox 360 (without kinect) in stock lately? I don't pay much attention to consoles but might be buying one soon and would prefer to do it without tax and my amazon credit if possible.

    XBOX live question

    Hopefully this will be an easy question for someone. My son's xbox 360 died (getting video pixelation type crap like it overheated or something). He just got a 12 month xbox live card for christmas. If he gets a new xbox will he be able to transfer his xbox live account to the new machine?

    Easy Dragon Age Questions

    I got in on the steam sale last week and am enjoying the game so far but I've got a few questions that I assume are easy and haven't found the answer in game. 1. where is your camp? It says to return to camp to repair injuries but I don't know where the camp is. I'm currently in the tower...

    Best Buy has puzzle quest galactrix for PC for $5.99 now. It was 19.99 up until recently and I was considering buying it at that price but with the price drop it was a no brainer. Price available online and in store but the DS version is still 19.99

    Compare Torchlight and Borderlands

    OK, I don't game much anymore but I downloaded the demo of torchlight and enjoyed it enough that I bought it (my first steam purchase) and have put in 15 hours or so on it so far. It is my understanding that there is no demo available for Borderlands so my question is, is borderlands basically...

    2 computers 1 monitor question

    What is the easiest/cheapest way to connect 2 computers to a single monitor so that I can switch back and forth between them easily? I'm not sure what I need to be able to do this but I assume they must make something that allows this. Thanks for any advice.

    Is there any difference between the CHEAP 22" monitors?

    I'm looking to get a 22" LCD for less than $200 (either black friday deal or microsoft cashback). I realize it won't be the best monitor in the world but are there major differences between models at this low end of the spectrum? I'll use it mostly for gaming and internet but not FPS games...

    I'm finally getting ready to get a new computer and am looking at going with a botique builder for the first time (always gotten dell's in the past). I will not be overclocking and I seriously doubt I will ever be using 2 video cards at once. Will probably go with vista 64. Anything look...

    X800XT Driver Question

    I'm in uncharted waters (for me) here so I thought I'd ask for advice rather than guessing. I reformatted my hard drive and reinstalled windows XP last night. I have a dell dimension 8300 with an X800XT in it. What drivers do I need to download for the video card? Just whatever the current...

    LOTRO Moria expansion

    Is there any good site for info about this expansion? There doesn't seem to be a lot of advance buzz about it as far as I can tell. I'm not playing LOTRO but I was thinking the expansion might be a good time to pick it up as I've always been fond of the moria scenes from the books/movies.

    Diablo Install Question

    I had been talking recently about playing Diablo since I had never played either of them and my girlfriend got me a copy of the original but it is for win 95/NT. Am I going to have a problem installing it on my XP machine? Did they make a different version specifically for XP? Thanks for...

    Can I add a 4850 to this Dell?

    I will be in the market for a new computer in the near future as my P4 2.8, x800XT isn't quite keeping up with the current generation of games. I'm not really comfortable building my own computer from scratch but I can install/upgrade parts. I've replaced video cards before but I've never...

    Used PS3 - which version should i look for?

    Looking to buy a used PS3 in time for GTA4. It looks like the 80GB version is about $50 more than the 40GB version. I know the 40GB can't play PS2 games which doesn't bother me. Are there any other differences between the two other than just the increased HD size?

    Hi all. My son has sold a bunch of his old systems and now has enough to buy an xbox 360. I was just wondering if there was any sort of price drop expected after the holidays. I don't think so but thought i'd ask here before he went and spent every last cent he has. Thanks for any advice.

    Is there a website that reviews game content for parents? I know there's some sites out there like that for movies. My son wants COD4 for x-mas and he's only 10. I don't have a problem with the violence from what I saw in the demo level but I don't know about language and stuff in the full...

    Sorry if this is an ignorant question but i've been completely ignoring Rock Band because of the price, but I just realized I have no idea what to get my son for christmas because he's addicted to WoW and Guitar hero and doesn't really play with much else so I thought maybe he'd like Rock Band...

    Recommend DS game for an 8 yr. old girl

    My daughter turns 8 at the end of the month and has said she wants a new DS game. The problem with licensed kids games is so many of them suck horribly and non-kid specific games I have a hard time telling if they're easy enough for her. So if any of you have kids around that age do you have...

    Wii: Virtual Console sales stats?

    Have VC download stats been posted anywhere? I'm hoping that before too long nintendo will wise up and lower the price on these a bit and was curious about number of sales of VC games at the different price levels and if a correlation could be drawn at all from that but I'd need data first.

    Using gamecube controllers with Wii games?

    Reading the PCmag review of the wii I noticed that they said you can NOT use the gamecube controllers on wii games. I was under the impression that this was possible (specifcally on metal slug). Does anyone know if it's determined by game or if I was just mistaken?

    Wario Ware Twisted on DS?
