How much then would you think a Sega Pluto which is a Sega Saturn variant of which only 2 are known to exist, the auction on Ebay ended at $15.500 but didnt hit the reserve price. How much is possibly one of the rarest consoles in the world worth ?
Croakyvoice writes: Over the years Mario has been the dominant force of Nintendo with such classic games as Super Mario Kart, Mario World, Mario Land, Nes Open Tournament Golf and Super Mario Bros 3 to name but a few of the greatest games of all time. Well now via an auction found on Ebay you can now get your hands on a quirky Mario Cooker which makes grilled sandwiches with Peach and Mario Faces on it. Originally brought in Japan so dont expect a release overseas.
An anonymous reader writes: Nintendo's Wii U console arrived back in November last year and at the start sold relatively well but sales recently have dropped off rather massively despite the release of some big name games. This week Nintendo president Satoru Iwata "Some have the misunderstanding that Wii U is just Wii with a pad for games, and others even consider Wii U GamePad as a peripheral device connectable to Wii.", this has prompted the likes of Amazon and Asda in the UK to drop the price of the Basic WiiU package down to £149, will this be enough to shift the console in big numbers ?
An anonymous reader writes: Sega Saturn News have posted that the Sega Pluto which is a Sega Saturn prototype unit with a different shell and a NetLink Internet Modem accessory built in is now on an auction on the Ebay Site, the console is rumoured to be one of only two ever built and was a precursor to the Sega Saturn having a Modem addon to play such classics as Daytona USA and Duke Nukem 3D.

Android News has found an Android Tablet that sells for a measly 50 Dollars, for that you get a 7 Inch screen, Front Facing Camera, 4GB of Expandable Storage and an OS running Android 2.2 Froyo. For that price though do you get a usable Tablet ?

Its amazing to find an Android Tablet that sells for a measly 50 Dollars, for that you get a 7 Inch screen, Front Facing Camera, 4GB of Expandable Storage and an OS running Android 2.2 Froyo. Cant wait to see the Kindle Fire at that price.
YokimaSun writes: Following on from the announcement of the Kindle Fire HD earlier, Amazon UK have now released both the Kindle Fire HD in 16 and 32GB variations and the new Kindle Fire which is also being released for the first time in the UK. Both Android Tablets are being released with prices that are extremely competitive against the iPad and iPad Mini. The Kindle Fire is to be priced at £129 and the higher spec Kindle Fire HD to be £159 for the 16GB and £199 for the 32GB version."
Busshy writes: Amazon have finally brought their Kindle Fire Android Tablet over to Europe with the release of the Kindle Fire HD, this is Amazon's effort to compete with the Apple iPad/iPad Mini and other Android Tablets such as the Nexus 7 and the Nook HD. The Kindle Fire HD has a new build, much improved display, front facing camera. Its taller than the original Kindle Fire (7.6 Inches) and a little wider (5.4 Inches), slimmer and lighter, yet the actual screen size is bigger. Amazon are also releasing a slightly more powerful original Kindle Fire for Europe and the UK.

Nintendo to counter this have announced a new $129 hardware bundle that includes a black Wii console as well as Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort, finally Sony have released their Superslim PS3 with 12GB of Flash Memory with a price of £159.
Croakyvoice writes: Announced on Slashdot a few weeks ago the new entry level 12GB PS3 Superslim has been released, the latest iteration of the Playstation 3 has Flash memory instead of a hard drive although you can easily add a larger hardrive via a caddy. Instead of a disc fed tray you now get a top loading machine. The 12GB version is at the moment just for the Europe/Australian Regions with a price aimed at those on a lower budget and to intice more of the casual gamer market.
Croakyvoice writes: Sony have today released their PS3 Superslim 12GB version which has Flash Memory onboard. Sony claim the console is now 25% lighter and smaller than their previous versions. The new PS3 Superslim has had a redesigned internal design architecture and removed the disc-fed tray and replaced it with a sliding top-loading disk cover. The price of the 12GB version is a wallet friendly £159 compared to the release of the 500GB version of the PS3 Superslim a few weeks ago which retails at £229.
