The guys from ConsoleSource have just given the team at 360-HQ the opportunity to review Talismoon's new Whisper Legacy Fans. A big thank you to the guys from ConsoleSource for sending us a sample to review for all our members here.
Banish heat forever with the new Whisper Legacy. Sporting a newly designed, front mounted "Nitro Switch", the Whisper Legacy makes it easier than ever to expel unwanted heat. The Whisper Legacy continues to come with blue LED lights installed, although you can use no LEDs or switch to red or green lights (also included).
The Whisper Legacy also enjoys the status of being the "quietest rated fan" that Talismoon has ever produced thanks to the newest mechanism available, a sealed oil chamber that provides less friction than ball bearings.
Every Whisper Legacy comes with a bonus: the "Abzorber" noise vibration reduction system, in every package. To help reduce DVD drive vibration noise.
No Ball Bearings: specially lubricated "sealed chamber" axis
Lighter impeller blades provide less resistance than earlier Whisper models
42,000 hour lifetime - nearly 5 years of continuous uptime

My buddy owns his own disc repair business which fixes scratched or scuffed discs.
I gave him my Call of Duty 2 and Perfect Dark Zero discs WHICH WERE SCRATCHED badly, so bad they would not play. The next day he came back with the discs and they looked like they just came out of the package. He fixed my dvd collection and ps2 collection as well as MY PSP games.
I have been reading alot on here about how people are stuck with scratched discs and cant do anything with them until now. He fixed mine really cheap since I paid 60$ for my xbox 360 games I had no problem giving him 5$ per game to fix it. They look new like I just bought them and work perfect. SAVED ME TONS ON MY DVD COLLECTION AS WELL. I have a library of over 1000 discs and 200+ were scratched now they all look new and work perfect.
I thought my fellow gamers would like to hear about this so they can get their games back into play. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org drop an email and see what he can do.
Some of my dvds had gouges which could not be repaired but there were very few he could not repair.
Activision's Spider-Man 3(TM) Video Game Unleashes the Power of the Black Suit into North American Retail Stores
Even the noblest of Marvel's Super Heroes have a dark side - it's time to unleash yours in the Spider-Man 3(TM) video game from Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI). Timed to the highly anticipated theatrical release of Sony Pictures Entertainment's Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios' "Spider-Man 3," based on the famous Marvel characters, the game allows players to experience for the first time Spider-Man's mysterious black-suited persona, as well as heroic red suit while battling villains in a massive New York City playground teeming with activity.
"The Spider-Man 3(TM) video game gives fans the chance to relive their favorite scenes from the film, as well as new storylines brought to life by movie talents Tobey Maguire, Topher Grace, Thomas Haden Church, James Franco and J.K. Simmons," said Rob Kostich, vice president, global brand management, Activision, Inc. "Players will swing into action and choose to follow the film plot or new storylines, fight off crime waves, explore vast exterior and underground locations or battle super-villains while harnessing the power of the black suit."
Microsoft has given developers the option to control chat options while playing in Multi-player games. Modern Warfare 2 will be using this system. When you are in party chat and try to get into a Public Multi-Player online match, You will be given the choice to switch to game chat or to remain in Party chat and not play. This system is intended to put a stop to people in party chat on opposite teams informing on locations of other players. Basically A spy on your team telling his buddy on the enemy team where you guys are in a map. This is expected to start showing up in many online games including Gears of War.
The latest Surround Sound headset from Turtle Beach is the X41. They take all of the best features from their X4 headset and combine that with RF Technology to bring you a premier headset worthy of the pros.
They feature 7.1 surround sound and Chat boost technology to name a few of their features.
I have put these through their paces on all different types of games for this review, from FPS to Driving games and watched movies and listened to music through them.
Headphone design and feel
First and foremost this headset is light. So light in fact that you almost forget you are wearing them and feature a breathable fabric cup for your ears to prevent them from getting sweaty, this is very handy for those long gaming sessions.....
The main draw for me with this headset is that everything you need is right there on your left ear. Volume, Bass Boost, Mic cable input and the power button, it just feels natural the way Turtle Beach have engineered them.
