This is definitely a good reason to drop by Toys R Us. The retail giant is offering a Buy 1, Get 1 50% off on ALL video games!
Now, we all know this happens only once (or a few couple times) in a blue moon. And although it’s not a Buy 1, Get 1 Free deal, it’s still a good deal so get it while you can.
A little footnote you should be aware of, however. This promo does not include PC games and pre-orders. Also, if the games you purchase have different prices, the discount will be applied to the one that has the lesser price. Got it? Now go get ’em games at discount!

It was mentioned here earlier that the Wii would be geting streaming support with Netflix. That system is now Live for use.
So, apparently, No Fuss Reviews had surveyed 500,000 people (via visitors being randomly surveyed that come from search engines; they also used measures to reduce duplicate submissions) on whether their consoles had failed and how many times they needed to get repaired or replaced. Well, here are the results of the survey:
42% of 360s?! I know, personally, I’m on my third one. PS3 being at 8% isn’t too bad, though. Wii’s is very low, but is that because it’s really well built or people just don’t play it enough? 😛 Anyway, they had follow-up questions as well, concerning how many times they needed to be repaired/replaced. Those numbers can be seen after the jump. They kind of make you wonder how many 360 sales are due to multiple purchases because of faults as well.
Usually when conventions like GDC roll around everyone expects to hear from “The Big 3”, aka Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo, for their line up of product reveals. Unfortunately this year, no keynotes will be held for any of the three.
On a brighter note Sony will in fact be holding a session to show off the anticipated PS3 Motion Controller, which will be held at the the convention on Thursday, March 11th, from 3-4pm PST. Sony’s Dev Support Team will be on hand as well to look over the show.
Even with the lack of keynotes, I’m sure Sony’s got some secrets to unveil, they always do.
GDC 2010 runs from March 9th – 13th at the Moscone Center in San Francisco
