The day

I'm in a hurry because I'm moving to my new apartment today and don't have the time to write much, because my PC of course goes with me to the new destination. I thought I post some interesting articles with a short description to keep you entertained while I'm moving.

Starforce admins and the admin of are fighting each other about the Starforce Protection and what it actually does / doesn't do.

The Nintendo Revolution, or Nintendo Go, or whatever the new system will be called, will offer not only old Nintendo games but also Sega Genesis and Turbo Graphx games to the audience. This increases the value of the console system tremendously. I can't wait to play another round of Shining Force.

Then we have this interesting article called Prison Time for downloading music which takes a look at a new German law which could be seen as a role model for other countries. Everyone downloading copyrighted material might face prison time doing so. God bless 1984..

That's it for now. Have a nice weekend and remember to come back :)

Update: Nintendo's virtual store was one of the first to offer virtual games to Wii owners. Today in 2012, all big gaming systems, that is PS3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii, have a store attached that connects to the Internet to provide gamers with classic games for their systems. The stores are not limited to classic games though, as Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 users can also buy new games directly in the store, without having to buy a game copy in a local store first. The contents are then downloaded to the game console where they are installed and made available. Nintendo has held back their own games from becoming available in the store, most likely due to the Wii's lack of storage space to store them after the purchase.
