    Hey Pasta, the new Godzilla movie released a new badass two and a half minute trailer. It’s up over at Kotaku.

    Still nothing on madden?

    Amazon is so late to the party with their been there-done that entertainment box. I’d rather they put that effort into getting their same day air service completed.

    • Yeah, not really any point to it for those that already have the consoles or Roku. The gaming I don’t think will ever be a big selling point when its basically mobile games on your TV.

      Of course Google is even later to the party since rumor is they’re announcing their own similar box soon.

  • Keith.

    Hearing Driveclub will be released the last day of E3, on June 12. Hope so — really looking forward to that one.

      I wonder if Pete Dodd is looking forward to it?
