Nintendo plans to release a black Wiimote and nunchuk in the States.
Well, it might be the most exciting Wii news in a while - and that's saying a whole lot. Nintendo announced that they'll be releasing a black Wiimote bundled with Motion+ on November 16. The bundle is going to retail for $50. The bundle is also going to include a black sleeve instead of the clear sleeves currently packed with Wiimotes. So that you can color-coordinate, Nintendo is also going to release a black nunchuk to retail for the regular $20 price tag. Unfortunately Nintendo hasn't announced plans to release a black version of the console itself despite the fact that Japan has already seen a black version of the console.
Here's to hoping that the States will get to see a black version of the console in the near-future!
My battery isn't holding a charge anymore, so I need a new one... Don't they exist anymore?
Like all rechargeable batteries, the one that comes with your play and charge kit will eventually fail to hold a charge for very long. Mine currently lasts about 20 minutes. I thought I'd just buy a replacement... They used to sell just the battery pack for $9.99. I know, because I bought one. I had two battery packs and one charge cable. The thing is, I can't find it anywhere anymore.
It looks like the only way to replace the battery is to buy a whole new play and charge kit. This sucks... It's not just the price that pisses me off, it's that I have a perfectly good charge cable that doesn't need replacing. Happy Earth day everyone, have some extra waste!
I decided to buy a charge station (comes with a battery pack), so now I have 3 batteries (only one that works), one charge station and a play & charge cable. If I want to replace one of the other batteries I'll end up with another cable... and so on until the XBox 420 comes out I should have 18 cables by then. Thanks MS.
I've seen some third party ones, but they have contacts on the back for charging while still on the controller, doesn't seem these would work with my charging station.

I can't go into a best buy with out buying something. everytime i walk in there i end up coming out close to broke and with something in my hands.
Somthing about Best Buy i dont know if the air filters are laced with crack or they have a magnets nside my wallet but i cant go a week without stepping inside a BB store and not walk out empty handed. Jimmy will tell you me and him would go a few times a week when he was in Miami and we would leave with shit we probably didnt need, made no sense. but i do love that store and there warranty's on most items are second to none! anyone have a place they go to that has half there yearly pay?
Don't spend $40 on a cord when $7 will do the same thing!
A quick note to all the readers out there; HDMI cables are cheap. I bought a 25 footer for my projector set up and only spent about $15. Big retail outlets will try to sell you a 6 foot cable for $40 because it has the name "monster" printed on it. They will try to tell you it's "high speed". This is all bullshit. Here's a 6.5 foot HDMI cable that does everything you need for $7. I guarantee it works, don't waste your money on cords!
Don't forget, most consoles only come with the basic standard definition cables... buy an HDMI with you system for the best possible picture! Don't be a Jimmy!

Ever wanted to try out a pair of Gaming Glasses, but you weren't sure on the look, the feel or the comfort? Check out these Eagle Eyes Gaming Glasses.
My first test of these glasses was playing Halo Wars. I noticed instant relief on my eyeballs. I played a straight 5 hour session with one match lasting over 2 hours. We finally won the match and I decided to take a break. I had completely forgotten that I even had the glasses on while playing. When I took them off I noticed a significant difference in all of the lighting around me. Everything seemed brighter. I don’t wear glasses outside of sunglasses while driving so I was surprised that the Eagle Eye frames were practically unnoticeable. The model I tried out was very light weight and did not put pressure on my head. They were very comfortable to wear for a long period of time. They didn’t squeeze my head or slide down my nose. I finished that session with no eye strain and no headaches. All units!Read full story...
Need a video card before Star Wars: The Old republic comes out, but want to keep it under $150? Some recommendations...

Microsoft finally releases a new wifi adapter that plays with 802.11n. Also, it's black.
For those who's XBox 360 is connected to the internet via wifi, this is some good news.
First, the existing wifi adapter (which connects to a, b, or g networks) is getting a price cut from $99 to $79. It's still overpriced, but hey, 20 bucks is 20 bucks.
The reason it's getting this price cut is to make room at the $99 price point for the new wireless adapter which will connect to the recently ratified 802.11n networks offering speeds up to 300mbps (as opposed to the 54mbps of the previous model).
The unit has two antennae and still supports the old standards (so you can upgrade one piece at a time), and supports n in either the 2.4 or 5 GHz range. Oh, and it's black to match your elite system. You have an elite system, right?
