Kinect to launch at $149? Gamestop thinks so

Kinect $149

Looks like Gamestop wasn’t shy about putting up a price for , the Xbox 360 wireless control system (formerly known as Project Natal) that Microsoft failed to price at their Media Briefing. Shortly after the briefing ended, Kinect made an appearance on Gamestop with a pre-order price of $149.99. The page has since been taken down, but we’re thinking that Gamestop wouldn’t haphazardly choose that price at random. When Kinect launches on November 4, we are guessing that you’ll need to be prepared to drop $150 and some change.

Xbox 360 slims down with 250GB HDD, built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi for $299

Xbox 360 Slim

At , Microsoft just announced a brand new design. The slim Xbox 360 launches today, selling for $299 (same price as the Elite) and has been not only redesigned on the outside, but the inside brings some excitement as well. First, it has a 250GB hard drive built in, and Microsoft says that it’s “whisper quiet.” It’s also got built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi, which eliminates the need for that horrible $99 Wi-Fi add-on, and saves you come cash in the process. It’s got three USB ports on the rear, along with a new AUX port, and dedicated Toslink as well. As we said, these are shipping this week, and should show up on places like Amazon and Gamestop at any moment.

DJ Hero 2 trailer: Two turntables and a microphone

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Activision, E3, Music, PlayStation 3, Wii, Xbox 360,

We were big fans of the original DJ Hero, so you can bet that we’re really excited about DJ Hero 2 and all the enhancements that come with the title. Launching this fall, DJ Hero 2 aims to be more social than the original by focusing on multiplayer aspects. Obviously, in the trailer, you’ve got three people playing together—two of them using turntable controllers, and the third singing into the mic. As far as artists features in the game, you can expect names like Dr. Dre, The Chemical Brothers, Kanye West, Metallica, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and over 85 others.

Another complaint about the original DJ Hero was that you kind of had to stick to the script. A big part of DJing is freestyling your way to creating your own sound. In DJ Hero 2, that’s fixed as well, with over 70 tracks available for you to do your will with. We will hear more about the title at E3 next week, and seriously, fall can’t come soon enough.

If you want to take a look at what you could get for trading in your current iPhone, here’s the list:

Just choose your iPhone model above, and full in the four questions that ask about the condition of your phone, and you’ll see the amount that you will be paid for your device. If you are cool with it, accept the offer, and you ship your phone. Couldn’t get any easier.

My Reactions to Lady Gaga’s Alejandro Video

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Gossip, Music Videos, Videos, Pop,


What a better way for to celebrate June 8th than with a video that is over 8 minutes long?

In this Steven Klein-directed clip for “Alejandro,” the singer takes a relatively simple approach when it comes to hair and costuming. She didn’t, though, spare any drama when it came to the video itself.

WARNING: This clip for “Alejandro” is NSFW. So you might have to settle for my initial reactions after the jump.

iPhone 4 Pricing

Okay, we’ve now got the skinny on what it will cost you to buy an , regardless of what situation you are in and your existing contract status. Here’s the breakdown:

If your upgrade date is anytime from now through December 31, 2010, you qualify for an early upgrade and get best pricing on the iPhone 4. That means you can buy the 16GB model for $199, or the 32GB model for $299 with new two-year contract.

Now, if your upgrade date is January 1, 2011 or later, then you qualify for an early update price, which is $399 for the 16GB model, and $499 for the 32GB iPhone 4 with new two-year contract.

So there you have it—you’ve got two weeks to decide!
