Two quick stories I didn’t want to devote whole posts to:
There’s a rumor Microsoft will cut the cost of the Xbox 360 to introduce a new version bundled with the HD-DVD drive. The new bundle would cost the old $400 price, while the regular premium 360 will drop to $300. Too early to know if it’s legitimate, but the price cut could kill Sony and make Nintendo look bad in one fell swoop.
At some point today, all Windows Live Messenger and Yahoo Messenger users will be able to communicate. Huzzah! You’ll only need the latest stable version, not a special beta, so enjoy!
