In what might be described as the height of irony, Rockstar's next foray into theft and mass murder, has itself been stolen and has begun making its rounds through various 'warez' sites. Not to worry, since it won't effect next week's release on Tuesday. Even if you did find a copy, you'd need a modded PS2 in order to play it, so potential users are in the vast minority. We're seeing a trend here. Last week, Microsoft faced a similar theft, when a French copy of "Halo 2" was also snagged and distributed. I'm sure you'll also remember the "HalfLife2" code theft as well.

With all the recent Nintendo DS coverage, we at Gear Live didn't want you to think we're not looking forward to Sony's upcoming portable. Just last week, it was announced that the PSP would support MP3 playback as stored on a Memory Stick Duo card, sold separately. With analogue controls, a vividly bright screen, wireless capability, and UMD disc-based storage (read: more detailed and richer sounding games), what's not to love? In addition, it will provide about the same graphical processing power of a PS2, which is leagues better than Nintendo's upcoming DS. Third party support should be strong as well, as evidenced by Activision's recent announcement that it will be launching versions of SpiderMan 2 and Tony Hawk's Underground 2 with the unit when it arrives here in the states early next year.

A couple of months ago, ColorWare took our iPod and gave it the golden treatment. After such a stellar job, we decided to find out what they could do with a game console. We sent ColorWare our regular black XBOX along with a controller, and they sent them back white as snow. We take a closer look after the jump.
