There is always huge anticipation on the big dog games inside the video gaming world and GTA is certainly one of those but I'm not sure if there has ever been any more hype over any other game past or present including all previous Grand Theft Auto titles. Grand Theft Auto IV has exceeded all others, from the micro machines, birds eye view killing spree original, to, Carl Johnson from the hood in San Andreas. If you are a mega GTA head like myself then I'm sure you took the time to check out the countdown to the TRAILER for the new game on Rockstar's website. Happy to say that the countdown clock has stopped ticking and you can check it out now over at the Rockstar website! I'll leave it to you to go check out but i will say, it is pretty short.
For a trial period BBC have announced they are to broadcast certain BBC TV channels and Radio channels continuously via mobile phone. When i say "certain" TV channels, it is more like "limited" TV channels, no that is a lie as well, i mean more along the lines of "almost no TV channels at all". TV channels on offer are BBC One, BBC News 24 and BBC Three but hey! come on, its better than nothing right? (i say rather sarcastically). Radio channels on offer are Radio 1, 1Xtra, Radio 2, Radio 3, Radio 4, 6 Music, BBC 7 and the Asian Network.

Building up to the release of the PS3 all the critics were debating on whether the PS3 would be a success? or Were they ever going to catch back up with Microsoft? To kind of prove a point, The PS3 has broken the previous sales record for a games console in the UK, selling more than 165,000 consoles in its first 2 days. Compare this to the Nintendo Wii selling 105,000 consoles on its launch weekend and the Xbox 360 selling a rather lame 71,000 and you understand how big an achievement it is.

Technology blogger Kathy Sierrra is at the centre of a row over blog bullying. In her case however, "blog bullying" is a bit of an understatement. Ms Sierra has been receiving unbelievable amounts of death threats and she calls for a change in the blogosphere. She has support from some of the worlds big web experts including Tim O'Reilly who was speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live on the matter.
If you are a true video gamer then i am sure that you already know that its almost here but just in case you're a part timer, let me fill you in. The Xbox 360 Elite or as i prefer to call it "that black one they've been going on about for ages" now has its very own official launch date which will be the 29th April. This is the US launch, the European launch date is not known at this point. £479 is the bounty on one of these which will be $190 more than a PS3! What extras are you getting with the Elite then? Well you get some black paint, a HDMI slot, double the capacity of a PS3 with a 120GB Hard Drive and no HD DVD Drive or Wi-Fi. Dont sound like much does it, but the HDMI will carry out sound and video at a high quality by just the one cable (good news for hardcore movie downloaders) The Elite wont be replacing the existing Xbox 360 which is a bit of relief really but i suppose the novelty paint is the highlight of some folks year.
