The Boiler Plate
In an attempt to make AGI as interactive as possible we're beginning to post our rundowns of each show right on the message boards, that way you can let us know what you think of each aspect of the show even before it airs. See an interesting news topic or a cool video post it to the board so we can try and include it in the show. Have the inside scoop on something industry related? Let us know so we can credit you for it. Feel like we've talked a topic to death? Let us know so we can consider getting rid of it. This is the All Games Communities chance to produce the show the All Games Community wants to hear. So let's begin our experiment in interactivity like so . . .Peace, Knowledge, and Truth,TigerClaw

Video game rent-by-mail company GameFly has just announced the opening of a brand new distribution center in Austin Texas. The new center will handle mailing games in little orange envelopes to subscribers across Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Louisiana, and New Mexico. This is the third new center opened in the past 13 months, along with the Pittsburgh, PA and Tampa, FL locations.“The Austin-area distribution center is strategically placed to provide the quickest shipping times to a large number of members across multiple states,” said Jeff Kawasugi, vice president of logistics for GameFly. “In addition, we are extremely pleased to join the Austin business community and look forward to a mutually beneficial and long-term relationship.”Now all they need is a center in Seattle and they're golden. Sorry Hawaii and Alaska, but you knew what you were getting into in the first place.
To ring in the post-MGS4 era in a suitably festive tone, Konami had planned to hold a few big launch "events" in Tokyo tomorrow, some of those meet-and-greet, get-your-sleeve-signed deals. Now, though, due to "various reasons", it's cancelled them. With no explanation given, only a notice on the game's official website that it'll instead take place sometime later in the month. It could be down to Kojima and co. being a little pooped after the worldwide promo tour for the game, but there's always the chance Konami are a little spooked following the tragic events that took place in Akihabara earlier this week.

It also has a fairly exhaustive list of supported video cards for both camps. You good to go? I am!
Truth Behind Xbox 360 "Recall" Is Quite Boring Microsoft has ranged from mum to cagey on the exact source of the hardware issue that has red ringed thousands upon thousands of Xbox 360s, with Robbie Bach chalking it up to a "a Microsoft design issue." While the President of the company's Entertainment & Devices Division would prefer to leave it at that, a report from the EETimes lays blame on the console's graphics chip, one made on the cheap.The online outlet cites Gartner research analyst Bryan Lewis who, at the Design Automation Conference, said that MS "wanted to avoid an ASIC vendor," opting to use a general purpose chip designed in-house. ASIC means application-specific integrated circuit, according to my sources that are Wikipedia. The EETimes writes that the decision saved money up front, but ultimately cost the company over $1 billion in warranty related costs.According to the EETimes, the chip at the source of the problem has since been redesigned by ATI.See? Boring. A more interesting theory is that Bill Gates lost a bet with Satan and that the Devil's hellish minions use the Xbox 360's ring of light as a passage into our world, burning them out in the process. We've opted not to contact Microsoft for comment on this matter.

According to several Kotakuites who decidedly broke the NDA by sending in tips, the invites for the private beta test of Tom Clancy's EndWar are now going out to those lucky enough to secure a spot. Here is a sample of the acceptance letter, with names changed to protect the guilty.
Complete with the game and the silver engraved PSP the Japanese got when the game first launched there.Of course those of you in the UK who already have a PSP they don't wish to replace with shiny silver goodness still get to benefit from the exclusive special edition, so while it might take a bit longer for you to get the games, Square Enix and SCEE definitely love you guys the best of all.
