Star Wars The Old Republic now set for global simultaneous launch

It's time for the newest and hopefully last date change for the release of the Star Wars MMORPG - The Old Republic. This is a game that, for the lay person, will be comparable to World of Warcraft in its scope, allowing players to create their own character with whom they'll be able to experience the entire Star Wars universe as it unfolds before them. Have battles, accomplish missions, swing some lightsabers around, the whole shebang. The newest word on this upcoming game is that there will be a global launch - with North America and the European territories on the list thus far and no sign of greater Asia - on December 20th, 2011.

Marvel Comics The Avengers first full-length trailer released [Video]

After much buildup including FOUR feature-length individual movies for each of the heroes included in this supergroup of a movie, May 2012's Marvel Comics' The Avengers has its first real trailer. And before you comic book maniacs have a heart attack reminding the world that The Hulk is included in this movie aside those three heroes with the four movies mentioned in the first sentence, know here that not only is this the start of a different storyline for the big green goliath, there's ANOTHER new actor in Bruce Banner's role. Mark Ruffalo as Banner though should be the least of your excitement here, blasts of fire, the hoary hammer of the gods, red white and blue punches of fury and Black Sabbath throughout should sent your hair straight upwards.

Sony PS3 Slim Being Sold Early to Those Who Look Hard Enough

Sony PS3 Slim Being Sold Early to Those Who Look Hard Enough

So, we'll admit that that title may be a bit misleading. Why? Because it looks like people aren't having to look that hard at all to find a few random (or perhaps not too random) pieces of Sony's new hardware floating around in retail stores. If you'll remember right, Sony said that the Slim wouldn't be sold until September 1st, but it's beginning to look like that release date might not have been as set in stone as originally thought. Well, let's hope that's the case, or there's a lot of stores out there breaking that one cardinal rule.
