If all goes well, they'll send you a gift card 10-14 days after the unit is received. So assuming worst case scenario, what are your totally broken gadgets worth?

• 3G iPod (10GB) - $3.23
• 1st Gen Zune - $5.81
• Palm Treo 650 - $3.69
• Xbox 360 Premium - $9.65

Needless to say, if you've trashed all of your electronics, you may be able to unload them and score a few bucks in the process.
 

PlayStation 3 to get More 3rd Party Support in 2009

PlayStation 3 to get More 3rd Party Support in 2009 100°
331w ago - A few months ago, the gaming community had its mind set that this generation is the end of 3rd party exclusives, and there will be a big push towards multiplatform.

Over the past year, there were a lot of multiplatform games released from the older Oblivion to the more contemporary Call of Duty, and to the more recent Bioshock.

There seems to be an agreement amongst gamers that the Xbox 360 always had the better version of the game because it's easier to program for, and of course sometimes that is true, but I also picked the above 3 examples to illustrate the point that sometimes the sheep mentality can be quite deceiving.

The PlayStation 3 version is not "always" the worst one, and sometimes it may even be the preferred version due to the free cost of PSN or the addition of Trophy system (if you prefer it over the Achievement system on your Xbox 360).

Or even better graphics (Oblivion), or extra contents (Bioshock/Eternal Sonata). Of course, some of these games are late to the table and I will not argue with you that if you had both machines you would have probably already played Bioshock. But setting these matters aside there is something else worth discussing today.

There is another misconception that the XBox 360 was getting all the 3rd party love, with...

Apple-Microsoft Advertisement War Gets Ugly

Apple-Microsoft Advertisement War Gets Ugly 100°
332w ago - The multimillion-dollar ad war between Microsoft and Apple has turned nasty, with Apple firing the latest salvo in an attempt to continue to define Vista as a broken, bug-ridden operating system.

Apple's ads have long lampooned the PC for being staid and uncool but, this time, Apple's target isn't the PC per se, but Microsoft's marketing strategy.

The first of two new ads shows PC, played by John Hodgman, allocating stacks of dollar bills toward either "advertising" or "fix Vista", with the bulk of the money going to advertising.

The ad is a swipe at Microsoft's $US300 million ($430 million) ad campaign to redefine Windows Vista's image, which featured stars including comedian Jerry Seinfeld (reportedly paid $US10 million for his appearance), actress Eva Longoria, singer Pharrell Williams and even the author Deepak Chopra.

A belated response to Apple's highly successful "I'm a Mac, I'm a PC" ads, the campaign sought to paint Apple and Mac users as elitists by presenting a slew of everyday PC users, such as scientists and teachers, espousing the virtues of their platform of choice.

"Hello, I'm a PC and I've been made into a stereotype," says a Microsoft engineer in one of the ads.

The second new ad from Apple...
 

LittleBigPlanet Sales Begin Early at WalMart and Target Stores

LittleBigPlanet Sales Begin Early at WalMart and Target Stores 50°
332w ago - According to many reports (including several in our own Forums HERE), retailers including WalMart and Target have been selling copies of LittleBigPlanet despite the game's official launch being delayed due to the alleged offensive material included.

Needless to say, it's probably best to call your local store up before you rush out to grab a copy though.

To quote: It seems that two huge retailers seem to have missed the boat on the recall, namely Wal-Mart and Target. That's right, I just picked up my copy of LittleBigPlanet at midnight here in my hometown. A quick phone call to all the surrounding cities' superstores brought similar responses. It's for sale, and that's the truth. This has been your ThatVideoGameBlog.com public service announcement.
