Amazing in-game footage from the X06 press event in Barcelona.

Incidentally, Virgin Megastores across the UK had an offer on this morning for a 360 Core System for £99, although they were in very limited numbers (something like five per store) and were being sold on a first come first served basis. I considered turning up outside our local store at 6am to try and get to the front of the queue, but having read blog posts on the chaos that ensued at stores in London and Leeds (one blogger commented that people were like animals, grabbing anything and everything they could lay their hands on), I’m glad I stayed in bed. I still want one though. Maybe there will be a price drop on the Premium system when the PS3 is finally launched here next year – fingers crossed

Apparently the boards were completely green, then digitally keyed out. Nice work, fellas

Hanso Exposed – The Secret of The Numbers Has Been Revealed September 11, 2006

So the latest phase of The Lost Experience has come to an end; all 70 codes have been gathered, and the correct sequence has been found. We now know the significance of The Numbers, and I think it provides very strong clues as to why Hurley’s fellow inmate at the asylum would repeat the numbers over and over. If he was involved in the project discussed in the video above, it’s no wonder he went insane!

Surprise surprise – PlayStation3 delayed in Europe September 6, 2006

Well spank me silly with a wiry brush – just days after the launch of the official European PS3 website, Sony have announced that us poor unfortunates in Europe won’t be getting our grubby hands on their new wonder box until March next year. According to Sony, the delay is due to problems with “the mass production schedule of the blue laser diode within the Sony Group, thus affecting the timely procurement of key components to be utilised in PlayStation 3”. The North American and Japanese launches are still due to go ahead this November though. My guess it that Sony want to make sure they’ve got enough consoles for the States and Japan, and the most obvious way to do that is to continue their long held tradition of shafting European gamers. Why don’t Sony just hand over the European games market to Microsoft now, and save embarassment later?!

Flash has now been around, in one form another, for ten years. So Adobe, who have had almost nothing to do with the development and growth of the Flash format, are marking the occasion

Blink and you’ll miss it.

To be honest, since I’m in the UK, I’m not as interested in when this premieres on ABC as I am in when it’ll premiere on BitTorrent 😉
