Articles of Interest

Xbox / India link updated with correct URL. I’m batting what… one broken link every other post? Bah.

  • eBay is delisting auctions for virtual objects. The stated rationale is notable: they’re effectively declaring that game players don’t have inherent ownership of their own virtual property… which is the rationale most MMO developers are hoping will take hold in legal circles.
  • Classic Nintendo game themes, acapella-style — a delightfully geeky treat.  :-)
  • Hamburger giant Burger King says its Xbox games promo helped the company achieve a 40% increase in profits for Q2. That’s huge!!
  • Some interesting anecdotes about games (and Xbox) in India.
  • Today’s Penny Arcade comic is hysterical.  :-)

  1. Hey, I’m not sure what interesting anecdotes you\’re referring to by linking to the Gamasutra article I wrote, but I\’m curious as to what they are.

    Link updated.
