This price is a "more than 35 percent discount" off of purchasing each of the add-on packs separately, so says Rockstar.

WoW considered for iPhone while creators play Star Wars

This week one of the makers of World of Warcraft at Blizzard Entertainment has let it be known that not only he plays Star Wars, his co-workers do as well. Speaking on why it seems that the most popular online role-playing game at the moment WoW seems to be losing subscribers, he noted that it's not just the wait for the upcoming expansion of the game Pandaria that's holding players back, it's the excellence of their competitors. Not only Star Wars: The Old Republic has been named in this case, it's Skyrim as well!

Age of Wulin pre-release auction nabs $16k for a virtual sword

Age of Wulin pre-release auction nabs $16k for a virtual sword

There's no denying that the virtual world is one lucrative enough for people on both sides of the equation to dedicate their lives to it - and in no more relevant a place today than a pre-release auction of virtual goods for a game by the name of Age of Wulin, this auction selling a man a sword for $16,000 USD. Of course he didn't drop USD on this weapon, and the only physical representation of it he'll see is a plaque (generous of them!) that he can hang in his room while he uses the "real" thing in the game when it's released in the Spring of 2012. This game will also be released in the USA soon after the Chinese Beta, but it'll only be this one lucky fellow who'll be slaying his opponents with this one sword.

On the other hand, it could all be according to plan, that list being smacked in the face after it was leaked and those responsible sacked. All we need to know is that Diablo 3 is only months away, and that yours truly is going to have to try his hardest not to completely dismiss the outside world and live in a cave with internet connection for the next few years playing.

When you're getting prepared for Diablo III which, for the record, we still expect to be coming out sometime before the end of 2011, you've got several things to think about. One of these things is: how will you earn enough money in the real world so that when the game is released, you'll be able to call in sick for several months? Second, and MAYBE more importantly, what kind of computer will you be playing the game on? Samsung has your answer - and you can play other games here too - with the Series 7 Gamer.
