This week I only managed to wring out 2 articles. It was a rather busy week for me. But the two articles I did get were important ones, at least as far as I am concerned.

Ubisoft Director Backtracks On Piracy Complaints After Public Lashing

This isn’t the first time I have called Ubisoft out on their inane aversion to PC gaming. It probably won’t be the last. This time an Ubisoft Exec is complaining about piracy and using it as an excuse to not release a PSN/XBox Live game on the PC. It is really sad especially when two developers from other studios are having tremendous success on the PC in spite of piracy.

Elvis Costello Tells His Fans ‘Steal This Record’

Elvis Costello wrote a very interesting article on his official website. In this article he called out his label for pricing a box set package at an insane price of $225. He thought the price should have been far lower. So he decided that his fans deserved more and told them not to buy the box set and in stead buy Louis Armstrong’s collectors set that was only $150 and had far better music according to Costello.

So that is it for this week. Tune in next week to see what else I have in store.
