Joystiq: Analyst Michael Patcher backtracks on his analysis from yesterday, re-analyzing the price point of the PSP Go! and determining that it is not as bad as originally analyzed. I hate everything about these people.

Joystiq: Everybody quit bitching, because Left 4 Dead will still be getting new content in spite of its sequel. Unfortunately, all of those boycotters will be too busy playing Left 4 Dead 2 to notice.

Joystiq: What will we whine about now that Left 4 Dead isn't being ignored? How about we complain about how much Halo: ICUP is going to cost!

Game Politics: Obama wants people to cut back on the video games. Well, as his boss, I want him to stop appearing on late-night comedy programmes and get back to work. Parkour fans rejoice!  More Mirror’s Edge on the way.

GameDaily: KOEI is helping out Japan by offering money to their employees for having more babies.

IndustryGamers: Microsoft is rebranding the Community Games portion of their Live Marketplace, as well as getting the ball rolling on searchable user ratings.  Oh yeah, and they’re rolling out a new version of their XNA Game Studio.
