Marginalia 9.9.09 (OMG GUYS IT'S 9-9-09 HOW WEIRD IS THAT)

Kotaku: Anton Mikhailov (who has a much lighter accent than his name suggests) gives some more explanation about Sony's motion controller: why the colored orb, why developers might prefer it over something like the Wii Remote, and a few reasons why we should actually care.

Kotaku: As mentioned in today's brief about a recent PS3 ad, Sony pulled the commercial after Nigeria complained, despite the joke surely being about "Nigerian Prince" spam mail. C'mon, people. Lighten up!

Joystiq: Another day, another Sonic the Hedgehog game promising to rejuvenate the franchise. It looks pretty traditional now, but don't worry guys - there's plenty of time to give Sonic a fucking sledgehammer or something.

Joystiq: Oh no, this game is finally going to make me play an MMO, isn't it...

Destructoid: Microsoft and Bungie, sitting in a tree, m-a-k-i-n-g a d-i-s-g-u-s-t-i-n-g p-r-o-f-i-t.Link
Destructoid: No immediate plans for Battlefield: 1943 DLC. Wait, the game itself wasn't DLC?
