SourcingMap HDD enclosure is also a PMP, very affordable

Sourcingmap launches series of Portable Multimedia Player that essentially the size of a typical HDD case with incorporated multimedia IO devices. The greatest asset of this PMP is not only the factory direct price of $85 or cheap (depend on quantity purchase) but its capability of supporting variety media formats including VCD, DVD, MPEG1/2/4, DIVX3.X--5.X, AVI, ASF, VOB, DAT, MP4, MPG, PEG, BMP, GIF and MP3. I could be wrong but probably the cheapest PMP I’ve seen with ability to read VOB format, great for direct DVD-archive-user.

Supermandolini’s Floppy Disc coasters

Supermandolini’s Floppy Disc coasters

Supermandolini has created coasters for geeks. You might be wondering why we geeks need special coasters and the answer is simple. It is merely, because we can, that's why. These coasters are fashioned after the extremely outdated floppy disk.

I've seen other geeky coasters before, some made out of old recycled circuit boards, however, I do believe these are my new favorites. Yes, you could use real floppy disks and it would likely be cheaper, however, they might get a little wobbly after a while. Plus, these are cooler.

Rumor – Saturo Iwata pulled the plug on Goldeneye for XBLA

Rumor – Saturo Iwata pulled the plug on Goldeneye for XBLA

If asked about my favorite FPS of all time, I would probably go with Goldeneye for the Nintendo 64. No game since has been able to match its incredible gameplay since. There have been times that I've wondered if I don't hold it to such a high standard because I played it so long ago. It's during those times of doubt that I would simply dust off the old N64 and remind myself just why I loved it. Needless to say, I was very excited when it was confirmed for XBLA, and greatly disappointed when it was scrapped. At least now I've got someone to blame.

Wii FreeLoader lets you play imports without the need for a mod chip

Wii FreeLoader lets you play imports without the need for a mod chip

In all my years of gaming, I've never actually imported any games from Japan (or anywhere else for that matter). The main reason for this is that I'm not fluent in any language other than English, which would mean all dialog would be completely lost on me. If you're one that loves you some imported games, you might be interested in the new Wii FreeLoader.

This disc will allow you to play imported games, regardless of region on your Wii without the need to have a mod chip installed. Unfortunately these types of discs are constantly being thwarted by system updates which essentially render them useless.
