  • It's the big news of the day. Rumours are flying like er.. pigs.. about how Dell bought out Alienware. However, Dell is adamantly stating that no.. they haven't.

    "At this time, Alienware will not comment on any speculative stories or rumors concerning Dell and Alienware's association. While we do believe that news stories like this are ultimately a strong positive reinforcement of the Alienware brand and the company's success, we will not comment on speculation or potential future events."

    or on Cnet Aussie

    He also questioned the reasons behind such an acquisition, stating that Dell is more than capable of building viable gaming machines without Alienware's help, and that Dell has the potential to be seen as a "cool" company.

    "Dell's XPS range already offers better performance and better value than Alienware's machines and in the XPS mobile concept you've seen the potential of one of the cool new things Dell could do this year," McKeon added.

    Despite McKeon's comments, Dell doesn't currently offer its XPS range to the Australian market.

    So I just bought a 400 XPS 3.0ghz dual core with 2 gig of ram and a 160 gig hd. I'm admittedly one of those people who when offered credits says.. "Why the hell not?" Besides.. who doesn't want a new fancy schmancy pc? I actually do hope that Dell has acquired Alienware. It may give Alienware a better customer support system as well as better built machines. Are they the ultimate gaming machine? That's the perception. . .

    Frankly, it may not be as cool but I've never ever ever ever had a problem with any of my four Dells in the 6 years that I've been buying from them. *shrug*

    Tell me what your dream machine is!

  • It's little surprise that these days MMORPG developers are hosting in game advertising to supplement the cost of producing and launching these games. Costing upward of thirty million dollars to make, smaller niche games don't have the chance to turn a profit as quickly as someone like Blizzard to went into the black months after release. With that said, NCSoft has signed a deal with Massive Inc to put in-game ads in their upcoming release Auto Assault.

    While you're driving down that highway of life, keep an eye out for that Pepsi ad.

  • Ok honestly, yes there are bright flashy lights and lots of noise. But really... compare that to the sweaty stank and the pushing crowds and it's not worth it so much. However, if you're into that sweaty stank... this may be the chance for you.
