Tiger Woods Making ‘Moves’

If you haven’t picked up a PlayStation Move yet and have a serious hankering for some virtual golf, then the new Tiger Woods 12 Move bundle should be on par with your needs. Sony has officially announced a new SKU priced at $100 which will land you a full copy of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters, a PlayStation Move controller and of course a PlayStation Eye camera. There’s been a ton of Sony motion control bundles released since Move hit the scene, but this one actually looks like the best fit. It definitely beats the copy of Sports Champions that ships with the original bundle, but that’s just our two cents.

Facebook and Skype Playing Nice

It was rumored and now it’s fact. Facebook boss Mark “The Zuckster” Zuckerberg  has announced that Facebook is getting Skype video chat. This motion will partner up the biggest social media giant with the biggest VOIP. The new service will be available in the next few weeks. As far as those of you who spend more time on Skype, you’ll be seeing integration as well. Skype version 5.3 will have access to update your Facebook status, as well as the ability to “like” posts and call friends. Sorry smartphone fans, no word on if or when we’ll see this in mobile form, but we’re willing to bank on something soon. They’ve gotta leave something to the imagination right?

What Did You Think of Transformers 3?

Now that the holiday weekend has came and went, we wanna know your thoughts on Transformers: Dark of the Moon? Aside from the typical Michael Bay stuff: explosions, long action sequences, and shameless product placement, we thought the movie was pretty good. It gave us what we wanted and never tried to be something that it wasn’t. Now before we lose focus and end up turning this into a review, we’re just gonna get back to the question at hand, what did you think?

Gears of War 3 Leaked

Video games seem to hit the torrent scene a few to a couple of weeks before there street dates, but several months is a big deal! Recently torrent trackers have been packed with a unfinished build of the highly anticipated Gears of War 3. Microsoft’s security team has been working with law enforcement trying to sort things out. We’re gonna pitch a little warning to those of you who might be thinking about giving this one a go. Seeing how this is an internal pre-retail build of the game, we expect that they’ll be going all out in making an example out of people caught with this one.

Aaron Griffin aka Ice-T Gets Busy in Gears of War 3 [Video]

We enjoy a good Gears of War montage like anyone else, but this one holds a special place in our hearts. This minute long massacre features Aaron Griffin whom happens to be voiced by Ice-T. Yes we know ‘Ice Loves Coco,’ but apparently he loves kicking ass as well.

PSN Welcome Back Kit Coming to an End

Almost a month ago, Sony had a grand reopening for the PlayStation Network after a malicious attack by internet bad guys. In an effort to apologize to loyal customers Sony assembled a Welcome Back kit, which offered a chunk of free content and games. If you haven’t taken advantage of this offer, you better act fast, because this Sunday is the last day for this offer. All you need to do is visit the PlayStation Store and hit the tab marked “Welcome Back.” Also as another friendly reminder, for those of you who’ve already redeemed your freebies, you may want to make sure your billing for the free PlayStation Plus service isn’t set to auto-renew. Of course if you’ve enjoyed the service, then by all means keep it, but we can already imagine the phone calls Sony is going to get when the auto-renewals start kicking in.
