New Consoles Will Make Game Prices Reach $100, Danny Bilson Says

Depending on where you live, you may already be paying $100, or slightly more, for videogames. And, if you're someone who always wants to get their hands on the "epic" or "limited" or "legendary" editions of games, then you're probably accustomed to paying (close to) $100 or more for a game.

Banksy’s True Identity Listed on eBay, Subsequently Pulled

Banksy is a British artist that has recently grown in fame due to some controversial, however well-done short films. The unknown individual, who has kept a secret identity despite his growing fame, is perhaps best known for his spoof on the popular cartoon, The Simpsons. Banksy created a new opening sequence back in October, 2010, that seems to start off normal enough, but then towards the middle gets a bit more "interesting."

Facebook Brings in $1.86 Billion Worldwide Advertising Revenue in 2010

Analysts are claiming that Facebook and Google may have more in common than previously believed, especially when it comes to how Facebook handles advertising. In new results from eMarketer, Facebook is raking in quite a bit of revenue based on advertising through the site.
