Scraps: This is gonna kill Hamtaro sales

2008-10-06 23:22:24·  2 minute read   ·  Conrad Zimmerman@ConradZimmerman


Local news is really funny. As I was watching Heroes tonight (Hiro's "key" is WIN), my local NBC affiliate news had a promo for what we could expect to see on tonight's program. I haven't had a chance to watch it yet because it's only about 9:30 here, but I'm so tuning in. Apparently, scientists are warning that hamsters may be dangerous pets for children to have.

Okay, the Dow Jones Industrial dropped another 350 points today, we're in the middle of an election and my local news is warning me about the risks of children and hamsters. If that isn't a misplaced set of priorities, I don't know what is.

Here at Destructoid, our priorities are right where they belong. That's why you didn't see any of these stories getting the full post treatment earlier today. 

  • Steve "Developers" Ballmer said that price cuts to the Xbox 360 are in no way indicative of poor sales. [GamesIndustry]
  • Midway has made the PC version of Area 51 a free download. This game always intrigued me, but I never bothered to play it. Anybody know if it's any good? [GamersHell]
  • Attendance at E 4 All dropped 17% this year, bringing in only 15,000 people. Dtoid was there. Expect our impressions of the show soon. You'll want to see this. [Joystiq]
  • Sony's Jon Koller says that the DS user base is under 12 years of age. I wish he'd tell that to my parents so they'd let me have my own damn hobby. [GameDaily]
