Comcast’s Purchase of NBC Approved by FCC

The proposed purchase of NBC by Comcast has been one that's stirred the pot for a little while now. With Comcast suggesting that they "could" offer low-cost Internet connectivity to families that fit the profile necessary, as long as the deal was pushed through.

It's just been revealed that the deal has been approved by the FCC, but the details are still missing.

Nintendo Confirms 3DS will be Region-Locked

The Nintendo 3DS is launching in Japan on February 26th, 2011, ahead of any other market. Getting the device imported to another region would probably not be that hard, and some highly-devoted gamers out there not wanting to wait for the device to launch in their region were probably already trying to figure out the best way of getting the device shipped to their home, outside of Japan. Unfortunately, a recent rumor last week put a damper on that possibility, with Nintendo supposedly admitting that the upcoming 3DS handheld gaming unit would be region-locked. Nintendo has finally come forward and provided an official statement regarding the rumor, and sure enough, the 3DS will indeed be locked to a specific region.

Xbox Isn’t a Gaming Console, Steve Ballmer Says

If you're a gamer, and you know other gamers, then you've probably had at least one conversation that focused on whether or not the Xbox 360 is better than the PlayStation 3, or vice versa. It's a heated debate, for sure, but if you've been talking about whether or not each of the consoles is a better gaming console, then Steve Ballmer can clear everything up for you rather quickly. In a recent interview, Ballmer opined that the Xbox 360 isn't, in fact, a gaming console at all. No, it's something much more.
