Uh-Huh-Yeah-Sure News: The PSN store is supposed to be working next week. Okay, moving on.
Graduation Present News: The new Xbox firmware update supports Paypal, and you could get a free 360 if you buy a new computer soon.
Fraudulent News: The first DLC for LA Noire is coming out next month. That was quick.
Conceptual News: The concept art for Battlefield 3's reinvention of Wake Island looks wicked rad.
Obvious News: Dragon Age 3 is a thing that's happening. Also, inFamous 2 is coming out soon because they finished making it.

Also, Bytejacker's Anthony Carboni and I recorded a commentary for xXx. The uh. Vin Diesel movie. This is hopefully part of a new thing we do called Movie Fail. Check out the details here.
