On a local alternative rock station (DC101) an early morning crew thought it would be fun to recreate the 'Teddy bear's Picnic' commercial by having two employees drive around in a van with Teddy Bear's Picnic on full blast, looking for unsuspecting shoppers. Luring the shoppers with promises of "free donuts" the radio employees pelted them with water balloons. Parent's in line, not appreciating the stunt, retaliated, and one went as far as throwing coffee at one of the DJ's present. With the radio show host commenting that Bill Gates is “sitting at home rubbing his crotch” today, Microsoft is enjoying alot of free publicity. (Good or Bad)

They have gathered together nine Xbox 360 launch games that also have Xbox versions for a head-to-head graphical comparison between games developed for both systems. They kept resolutions at 480p, so the 360 won't be able to hide behind the image-quality advantages a higher resolution gives you. The result? Well let’s just say there are more than a few bottles of Snake Oil in stores this holiday season.

While there hasn't been much information released on Rumble Roses XX for the Xbox 360 since the Tokyo Game Show, its development seems to be going smoothly. In interviews with Famitsu Xbox 360 and Dorimaga, Rumble Roses XX producer Akari Uchida reveals that the game is already 76 percent complete, and he expects it to come out "by the warm season"--which presumably means spring or summer. Uchida revealed that a mud-wrestling ring won't be included in Rumble Roses XX, although a new mode will replace it. The game will introduce the series' first animal character: a huge panda that can perform wrestling moves.

Microsoft has released the first in-game downloadable content for Kameo on the Xbox 360, and it has a very Christmassy feel. Setting gamers back 200 Marketplace points (with 2100 points setting you back around £17.50) this festive pack, titled the Winter Warrior Pack, isn't so jovial after all. The Winter Warrior pack contains no new game content, just some seasonal fluff to entice gamers to try out the marketplace. All you get is some new costumes to dress Kameo and her warriors in. Kameo gets the Mrs Claus treatment, with other costumes including Rudolf.

Every man and his dog is aware that Xbox 360 will be in short supply on its December 2 launch in Europe, but recent comment from major British videogame retail chain Game paints a picture even more dismal than may have been expected for availablitliy of the console on day one in the UK.
