+ - Valkyria Chronicles DLC Released->

Submitted by
Sephiro444 writes "With three episodes of DLC released for Playstation 3 today, Endyss, an articulate writer for the gaming portal WDFNews.com, published a review/editorial in defense of Sega's Valkyria Chronicles. It's a game that has received woefully little in the way of sales, and Endyss' piece has already convinced several of the site's readers to pick it up. VC is a true diamond in the rough game and should definitely be tried by the widest audience possible. With its first (and possibly only) DLC coming out today, there's no better time to give it a try."

Comment: Chapter 11 != Liquidation (Score 1) 88

by Sephiro444 (#26853979) Attached to: Square Enix To Buy Eidos, Midway Files For Bankruptcy

Several people have commented about Midway's Chapter 11 filing possibly leading to other companies purchasing their IP rights to various franchise, but it's important to keep in mind that there's a big difference between Chapter 11 bankruptcy and Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Under Chapter 11, reorganization, the organization is given time to restructure its debt, retain its assets, and negotiate deals with creditors. It still has to pay off its debts, but possibly over a longer term or with a lower interest rate. This is a very different beast from Chapter 7, where the firm's assets are sold off (liquidated) to pay off the creditors, after which the firm ceases to exist.

Under some circumstances, a company in Chapter 11 can be forced into Chapter 7, but as it stands now, the proud Midway name will continue on down the road.

+ - Steve Jobs gets grilled at UK iPhone launch

Submitted by
An anonymous reader writes "CNET has a fantastic video of Steve Jobs getting asked some really tough questions about the iPhone at the UK launch including, why there's no 3G, what he thinks about the iPhone hacks and why the iPhone only has a 2-megapixel camera, among other hard questions. The best bit is his reaction to a question about iPhone hacks, he looks like he's either thinking of what to say or a little angry."

Put your best foot forward. Or just call in and say you're sick.
