We've received word that the much-anticipated PSP UMDGen v4.00 release should be within the next 24 hours (likely sometime Monday, December 11) so until that time here are a few other events going on here at PS3News.com:

Recently Radiskull has organized a PS3News on-line gaming clan dubbed "P3N" as their name. Those interested can get together with them in the ongoing PS3 ONLINE ID: (Post your online ID) Forum thread, and CJPC has added the ability for everyone to add their P3N Clan Tag to their profile and posts here by following the instructions in THIS post.

Next up, our affiliates at www.FoundMy.com have let us know tonight of some news as follows: For starters, they now have the long-awaited DS-Xtreme (DS-X) Dev Kit IN STOCK and available now for only $124.95... and the best part is, it includes (2) FREE GIFTS with each one ordered!

They also let us know they have in limited quantities both the Nintendo Wii and PS3 60GB consoles IN STOCK. These aren't yet integrated into their on-line shop as they will likely sell out VERY fast, however, if you are serious about purchasing either they can be contacted HERE for additional information on these [COLOR=red]HOT Christmas 2006 items! :grinxs

Finally, for X-Box 360 fans FoundMy.com has DVI, HDMI, and optical cables along with LOTS of X-Box 360 Accessories available and they are expecting the new X-Box 360 NME-360 v1.2 Mod-Chip (the REAL all-in-one solution) by mid-week we're told.

We would also like to welcome our newest affiliates at www.B-M.cc who is a Gaming Wholesale and Manufacturer based directly in HK- right at the heart of the action! They have now started expansion to on-line Retail sales as well- check them out today!
