+ - Lucas sues over portable laser->

Submitted by Impy the Impiuos Imp
Impy the Impiuos Imp (442658) writes "George Lucas has decided to sue a company that produces a powerful, portable laser that, coincidentally, happens to look like a lightsaber hilt. Or not. You be the judge.

It can set things on fire with the best of 'em, though, and, like a real lightsaber, should not be jammed in your eye.

Lucas filed a similar lawsuit last year regarding a laser that was too close to the Death Star, which was thrown out of court on technical grounds."

+ - Sony To Encase In Carbonite Half The Star Wars: Ga->

Submitted by Impy the Impiuos Imp
Impy the Impiuos Imp (442658) writes "Not surprisingly that it's gone unnoticed for several days, but Sony is apparently merging out of existence half its Star Wars: Galaxies servers. In spite of a number of innovative features (three health bars, choreographable dancing and music coordinatable between several players, "your own R2 unit and 3PO", programmable droids, and so on) a complete overhaul of the combat system, designed to simplify it and make it more action-oriented, actually drove away more people than it attracted. It soon thereafter retired to that great Sony one-fee-for-all stable of aging and also-rans in the sky.

Still on life support, it was preceded in death by Sony foster brother Matrix Online."

+ - Star Wars RSS feed messed up

Submitted by Impy the Impiuos Imp
Impy the Impiuos Imp (442658) writes "As I cannot easily find "Contact Slashdot", I'm arrogantly using the story submition feature to let you know your Star Wars RSS feed is messed up, not having been updated since shortly after the Episode III game trailer was released. FYI, it is at It's Star Wars. What kind of nerds do you call yourselves?"
