But this one may just top them all.
Sony's PlayStation 3 is just about as popular as Microsoft's Xbox 360.
Sony announced on Wednesday that it has shipped 80 million PlayStation 3 units worldwide. The news comes just a few weeks after Microsoft announced the same milestone for its Xbox 360.
Sony's console, which launched in 2006, took roughly seven years to reach the mark. The Xbox 360 launched in late 2005 and hit the milestone in eight years.
Regardless, Sony and Microsoft are now looking ahead. Both companies are planning to launch new consoles later this month. The PlayStation 4 will hit US store … Read more

It's already Halloween in some countries, which means there's a new Google doodle.

Users can combine various ingredients to play mini games, from whack-a-mole with the undead, to a shell game where your goal is to find a mummy in a coffin. There are several others, which can be found with experimentation.
That's about all you can do with this one, so if you're looking for an ending, it's … Read more
Sales of Nintendo's Wii U have jumped a bit lately, but the device is still proving to be a thorn in the game company's side.
During the six-month period ended September 30, Nintendo generated revenue of 196.6 billion yen ($2.011 billion), down from 201 billion yen during the same period last year. The company was able to post a 600 million yen ($6.14 million) profit, however, which was far better than the 28 billion yen loss it posted in the prior year.
The data Nintendo revealed Wednesday also highlights a surprisingly fast fall from prominence. … Read more

If it's good enough for great actors like Robert Downey Jr., Sam Worthington, and, um, Kobe Bryant, then it has to be good enough for perhaps America's greatest female actress.

So into the breach to prove that "there's a soldier in all of us," just as there is inside of Jimmy Kimmel, comes Megan Fox.
