Fans of Razer’s Boomslang run, don’t walk to get yourself a CE (Collector’s Edition) 2007. It features an 1800 dpi 3G infrared sensor, a 32KB Razer Synapse onboard memory, 5 programmable hyperesponse non-slip buttons, 1000Hz ultrapolling /1 ms response, a speed of 5.8 megapixels per second, 15g of acceleration, and a16 bit ultra-wide data path. The mouse is also ambidextrous, features a 7 foot, non-tangle cord, and has the unique look of the Boomslang. There will only be a total of 10,000 available, each with a unique serial code, certificate of ownership, and comes enclosed in a matte black metal box for $99.99.
By the way, we just learned that the initial collection has sold out, but they have decided to offer more towards the end of the month. We suppose that means you can make it an easy lope over to the Razer Zone.

This timepiece is for those that believe that the cup is half empty or maybe for those who know that time keeps on ticking, ticking away. Crispin Jones designed his Accurate watch in what he refers to as Critical Design, “using the language and tools of design to articulate a critical perspective.”
Created with a mirrored dial like the original analog with rotating discs, his watch is available in a Limited Edition of 100 for ~$163.00. To see more of Jones’ concepts with messages, check out his website.

BioShock has, in the days since it’s release, received a seemingly equal amount of praise and criticism. While reviewers are raving about the game’s polish and atmosphere, some gamers have been griping about the way the game handles widescreen displays and some of the DRM issues on the PC version. And as was perhaps inevitable, someone in the mainstream media started some stink about the game’s moral dilemma involving harvesting versus saving the Little Sisters.
Irrational/2K Boston’s Ken Levine spoke with Joystiq about these and other post-launch issues, essentially coming clean that there were some mistakes made on their end, but confirming that they were committed to making things right. He also confirms that there isn’t any PlayStation 3 version in the works despite the reference to the platform found in a configuration file. Regarding the Little Sister concern, Levine says:
This is a game about making your own choices and consequences. It doesn’t take things lightly. Somebody should just sit down and observe the sequence of harvesting a Little Sister. It is about the most thoughtful presentation and most carefully executed presentation of the subject. It is strictly about getting the emotional content across without unnecessary violent content. There are people on the flip side who want to chase down a Little Sister with the gun, if they want that, they’re playing the wrong game.

Entertainment Earth can find anything menacing and turn it into adorable. Knowing that a second Hellboy movie is in the works and will be released next year about this time, we discovered this limited edition vinyl Qee. Standing at 8-inches, Mike Mignola’s creation has flexible arms and legs for breaking up rubber bricks with his right hand. If that isn’t enough action, he also has his signature gun implanted on his left one. With only 1,500 available, this is truly only for fans of the comic/movie at $79.99. Pre-order now as availability should be sometime this month.

What is it about the last Friday of the month that inspires nationwide frenzy and anticipation? On June 26 it was the iPhone’s debut, this July 27 it’s “The Simpsons Movie”. The past few weeks have been heaven for fans of the series, with a publicity juggernaut that includes turning 7-Eleven’s into exact Kwik-E-Mart replicas and even being able to Simpsonize yourself online. Now comes the Limited Edition soundtrack, which is not only scored by prolific Oscar-winner Hans Zimmer, but is packaged in a Homer-tastic plastic donut with pink frosting and sprinkles. We absolutely love it. They’re currently available for pre-order on Amazon.com for $21 USD, and will ship July 31. We highly suspect this one will sell out fast.

The so called “Limited” Edition (limited to the number of them they can sell, no doubt) of Halo 3 has had its case unveiled, and I’ve gotta say – it looks pretty sweet. Sweet to the point where I considered changing my plans to purchase the Legendary Edition. For only $70 – $10 more than the standard edition, and $60 less than the Legendary Edition – you’ll receive a copy of the game, a bonus disc with all sorts of goodies, and a Halo fiction and art book. There was an erroneous picture floating around the internet that showed a second game disc, but this was proven to be a mistake on Microsoft’s end. Bungie.net’s Frankie explains the error:
The Collector’s Edition picture erroneously shows that it ships with a Bonus Content disc and a Game Two disc. Incorrect. It’s a mistake at MS’ end and we’re updating retailers with the correct image. The “Game Disc 2” shown in the art actually refers to an interactive Bonus Content disc. It’s an Xbox “executable” (think of it like a menu-driven disc, similar to the Official Xbox Magazine cover disc) and internally, has always been referred to as “Game Disc 2” because it has to go through the same certification process as Halo 3 itself. That was somehow communicated to MS retail marketing verbatim. Hence the error. No big deal.
It actually is a pretty complicated situation, so check after the break for the full explanation and list of contents for each Halo 3 SKU.
