The XIM 2 module, which is supposedly plug 'n play in nature, is at long last available for ordering, though it's not quite ready for shipment."

Mouse/keyboard for FPS games on the 360 at $179? Very tough choice, for me being a PC shooter type.

IdleLeeSiuLung5378d ago (Edited 5378d ago )

I guess for PC gamers that are used to spend $200 on RAM every quarter, it is an easy choice to fork over the money. For me, it is an easier choice, I'm keeping my money at $180 for games for the rest of the year (or maybe part of the year).

That price is insane! Don't forget to add the cost of a nice keyboard and mice...

TheIneffableBob5378d ago

lol, RAM doesn't cost $200. 4GB is like $40.

Marcan215378d ago

If PC gamers want ram they wont take some cheap ram... most likely they will even take ddr3, buy heatsinks for it, and evrything...

TheIneffableBob5378d ago

$40 for quality RAM from name brands like G.Skill and OCZ. Good RAM is only needed if you plan on doing some overclocking and you won't see much of a difference between DDR2-800 and DDR2-1066 speeds in real-world applications. DDR3 is somewhat expensive compared to DDR2, but prices are rapidly declining as fabs begin to phase out DDR2. Also, people don't usually "customize" their RAM. Most just use the heatsinks that come with the DIMM.

Leave the PC Gaming comments to those who have a clue what they're talking about.

What makes you think that I know nothing about PC Gaming? Mister self proclaimed expert!

For those others that misinterpreted my comment, I was exaggerating and talking about prices over time. It wasn't too long ago, maybe 18 months, that quality RAM cost $200 and more for 4GB. Many gamers buy the latest and greatest. Many of them don't mind the price tag as long as it gives them the biggest epeen.

The 7 Best Video Game Trailers of All Time

There's been a lot of great video game trailers over the years, but here's Chit Hot's picks for the seven best produced so far.

Rik Mayall, what a legend.

-Foxtrot1d 12h ago

I never even knew this existed, I love him, he was fantastic

Just a shame that he passed away, I always wanted to see if they did one more Bottom live when they were older to send the characters off if he was still alive. I'd have loved to go and see it.

@LordoftheCritics that's my kind of list! I'd only add Halo Wars 2 and For Honor.

Versus Xiii original trailer, I was literally a kid back then. Shame it was quite disappointing on release


-Foxtrot1d 12h ago

Assassins Creed Brotherhood and Revelation had some great cinematic trailers, the latter using Woodkids Iron. Even Assassin Creed Unity had a trailer when they used another Woodkid song which was decent.

Tomb Raider Underworld had a really good reveal trailer showing Croft Manor in ruins but showed it in reverse.

The Last of Us Part II reveal with Ellie singing Through the Valley and also the TV Sport where she sang a cover of True Faith.

The Witcher 3s A Night to Remember trailer which they basically turned into the games Epilogue set after the Blood and Wine expansion. He told Orianna he'd come back for her and he did.

Halo 3 Starry Night. Short but effective.

The Callisto Protocol launch trailer. The game might not be amazing but the launch trailer was well done and the theme song to the game "Lost Again" by Kings Elliot was beautiful

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, great trailer and really gave off that mystery, conspiracy vibe

Uncharted 4 Man Behind the Treasure

Deathloop Launch trailer with Pitch Black and the official gameplay trailer with Déjà Vu, two great songs made for the game.

Never even played the game but AC Revelations CGI trailer I saved in my PS3 and would rewatch on a regular basis, and used it as a reference for calibrating TVs when I bought them

eagle2112h ago

Grand Theft Auto Vice City back in the day, The Uncharted series trailers have been awesome (always get me hyped), Grand Theft Auto 5, Breath Of The Wild reveal trailer, Team ICO trailers have heart and Ghost Of Tsushima reveal made my jaw drop....to name only a small few.

TheEnigma31312h ago

Gears 1 and gears 3 are the top for me. I would throw dante's inferno in there for the song

Hofstaderman12h ago

Mass Effect 3 trailer featuring the battle. Enough said. That and Assassins Creed 3 cinematic trailer was great too.
