GameStop sees increased Xbox One interest following price drop reveal


GameStop President Tony Bartel noted an increased interest for Microsoft's Xbox One following the hardware manufacturer's recent decision to change course and package the console without the Kinect camera peripheral. "I definitely think we're already seeing in our stores with our reservation program as well as the dialog to Power-Up Rewards that there's a stronger demand as a result of the price drop," Bartel said during the company's earnings call this week.


Microsoft announced that it will begin selling the Xbox One without the Kinect last week. The dis-Kinected console will hit retail on June 9 for $399 in North America and £349 in the UK. Following the news, GameStop began offering special trade-in prices for Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles in exchange for in-store credit towards the cheaper Xbox One. Microsoft also revealed that it will no longer keep media streaming app like Netflix and Hulu Plus behind its Xbox Live paywall, though it confirmed to Joystiq that free-to-play and subscription-based games such as The Elder Scrolls Online would still require the paid Xbox Live subscription to play.


"The good news for us is it sells more units. We'll sell a lot more units, because like we shared earlier, we're driving a lot of the growth, and that means there will be more [Xbox One] units out there to put software on," Bartel added. GameStop reported total global sales of $2 billion for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 (ending May 3, 2014), which amounted to a seven percent increase year-over-year.

X-men Days of Future Past Review:


Came with the 5th largest opening for a memorial day weekend at $110M

and it’s 3 day total of $90M was behind both Spidey and Cap. (I liked it better then both) Even falling short of Last stands numbers on it’s opening weekend. Shocked by that! With a budget of $200M this movie really needed a huge weekend not only here in the US but worldwide and that it had. A wopping $171M. DOFP will be the largest x-men movie by this time next week.



Daredevil had been cast for Marvel’s upcoming netflix series:


The news, which was first reported by Latino Review and since confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter, comes on the heels of word that show boss Drew Goddard has left the project to concentrate on his Spider-spin-off film Sinister Six, and will be replaced by fellow Joss Whedon veteran Steven S. DeKnight.


Cox, who also spent two years playing Owen on Boardwalk Empire, is apparently set – though Marvel has yet to make an official announcement – as Murdock, the lawyer blinded at a young age in a strange accident that leaves him with enhanced other senses that help him compensate and, with a little martial arts training, turn him into a super-powered hero fixated on vigilante justice in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen.


Daredevil’s story will run on the streaming service alongside those of Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage, before the characters’ worlds combine for planned miniseries The Defenders. The cameras should be rolling in New York this summer for a planned launch of 13 episodes next year.

A guy found a one day old baby moose wandering along an expressway in Canada. He rescued it and would have taken it to an animal hospital, but it was closed.

So he took it to the next best place...Tim Horton’s! This could be the most Canadian news story ever!

Stephane Desgroseillers said he found the moose next to a local highway in the Greater Sudbury Area. He said it was clearly a newborn, as it was damp and wobbly on its legs

Desgroseillers tried to direct it into the woods, but without success. “The little calf kept coming back out on the road and wanting to go into the traffic,” he said.

The animal shelter he tried to reach was closed, so he took the moose home for the night. The next day, Desgroseillers stopped for coffee at Tim Hortons before taking the young moose to the Wild at Heart Animal Refuge Centre.

Edible Mist Machine Lets You Inhale Bacon Without The Calories

Suck it, Jenny Craig.

Now you can inhale all of your guilty pleasures without that good ol' American caloric intake. Lick Me I'm Delicious, a group of foodie inventors out of the United Kingdom, says its Edible Mist Machine can emit 200 different "delicious" flavored vapors for your enjoyment. We say enjoyment, but we're worried about the lobster, bacon and popcorn varieties.

"The range of flavors is massive and we can also produce you a personalized mist from pretty much anything in the world, like your favorite book or even your hair," he said. "AND it’s zero calories."

Company reps in the U.K. told said they can't ship one of their gigantic gizmos to test out stateside. But You can rent them out for parties in the U.K., or get one yourself for the meager sum of about $8,400 plus shipping, so please let us know if you've tried it.

Mosquito tornado

In Portugal recently, photographer Ana Filipa Scarpa noticed something off in the distance that resembled a funnel cloud. But it wasn't a tornado, or even a funnel for that matter. Rather, it was something... alive.

"Earlier this year, I was finishing-up my photo shoot for the day, and I began to pack my things — when suddenly I saw in the sky [something] that I thought was a wind twister," Scarpa told io9. "It was a very high funnel swinging to the left and to the right. I pointed my camera and began shooting before it hit me. But the funnel did not move toward me — and I thought it was so strange — so I got into my car and started to drive towards it, and that's when I realized it was a mosquito twister."

As she drove nearer, the mosquitoes actually started entering into her car.

Leziria Grande de Vila Franca de Xira is a highly fertile breeding ground for mosquitoes, Scarpa told me, because there are many water branches to assure water to animals and harvests.

Scarpa says the swarm extended about 1,000 feet high and was nearly a quarter mile (300 meters) from her position. It was taken with a Nikon D3 and a 200 mm lens; perspective makes the leading edge of the swarm appear smaller and thus tapered.
