This, of course, is the same planet that gets ridiculously hot around its equator, to the tune of about 800-degrees Fahrenheit. There has been speculation for quite some time that the craters located on the planet's poles might contain ice; now we have confirmation thanks to scientists working with the Messenger mission.

THQ stock climbs nearly 40% after release of Humble Bundle

Earlier in the day, we told you about the latest Humble Bundle. This Humble Bundle is more or less the same as past bundles in that players get to name their own price for it, but there's one key difference: instead of bundling together a bunch of indie titles, this latest one is a collection of THQ's biggest games. It would appear that THQ's investors like this idea a whole bunch, because THQ's stock ended the day up a whopping 37.96%.

Atari rings in 40 years of Pong with free iOS game and custom Xbox 360 with LCD

Atari rings in 40 years of Pong with free iOS game and custom Xbox 360 with LCD

The big 40 has come down for the original tennis game Pong, and the folks at Atari are ringing in the occasion with two big releases. The first is what the company calls "the first-ever official new Pong game on iOS", this meaning not that Pong has never been on iOS before, but that this is the first real redesign for the next generation - we guess. Either way, it's free, and the other big release is even more gigantically awesome than you can possibly imagine.

Nintendo’s Wii Mini Is One Big, Bad Idea

Nintendo quietly announced the Wii Mini recently. The console, which will be available in Canada for $100, supports over 1,000 Wii games, but lacks a host of important features, including backward compatibility with GameCube titles and the ability to connect in any way to the Internet.

Of course, Nintendo has said that the Wii Mini is the perfect value. The console is cheaper than the Wii and is smaller. Plus, it’s the perfect entry point for new gamers who don’t care about the old days and simply want to get their motion gaming on.
