Best Buy Wants $30 to Turn on Your PlayStation 3, Press a Button

This sign was found in the Best Buy on Staten Island (the same store where your writer has laughed in the faces of sales reps on several occasions). Over there on the right is an offer for a 120GB PS3 Slim for $329.98. The problem? The list price for that console is $299.99.

Armed With CTA Weaponry, PS3 Finally Gets the Assault Rifle It Deserves

Nintendo, of course, pioneered light gun gaming with the epochal 'Duck Hunt' and the somewhat forgettable Super Scope. In the '90s, though, Sony adapted the addictive 'Time Crisis' arcade series for the PlayStation, giving birth to a new generation of light guns and gaming. That franchise and its Guncon armament remain with the PlayStation 3, but the advent of Move technology has quickly att...

But, as more 3...
