Submission + - GameStop opening Deus Ex boxes, removing free game (

DisKurzion writes: A leaked GameStop memo indicates that employees are to open the regular PC release of Dues Ex: Human Revolution and discard the included OnLive coupon.

From TFA: GameStop spokesperson Beth Sharum confirmed the practice, telling Ars that "Square Enix packed the competitor’s coupon with our DXHR product without our prior knowledge and we did pull these coupons."

If you buy a PC game retail, make sure the box is sealed!!


Submission + - The future of moviemaking (

DisKurzion writes: As covered by torrentfreak, The Tunnel is the latest attempt to update the movie industry's dying business model. Instead of going through traditional routes, they are funding the movie by selling 135,000 frames at $1 apiece. One lucky frame will receive 1% of any money they make. After raising the money, once the movie is complete, it will be released on torrent sites.

It is easier to change the specification to fit the program than vice versa.
