MMO Calendar

We here at PLuGHiTz Live! feel that any attempt to help a charity is a good idea, and when it comes along with participating in videogames, it is even better. So, we were really excited to hear that an MMO Calendar had been produced for 2008, with proceeds going to help St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.

The calendar will be illustrated with original artwork from the universes of some of the great MMOs. In addition to the calendar, and helping children, you will also get the possibility of being part of Betas and passes to games.

Shareholders Sirius About XM

Yesterday, shareholders approved the acquisition of XM by Sirius after 10 months of deliberation. The merged company promises more programming options, better packages and exciting hardware. Sirius already has great programming, including Howard Stern, with most sports programming, and the addition of XM's sports programming will create an unbeatable system. On top of that, the new Sirius TV, which might be launching on the new Sportster 5 receiver, makes this a must-have product. Let's hope the morons in Washington don't screw this up.

Atari Stops Production

Our beloved creator, Atari, is really not doing well. They have decided to cease production in the near future. Also, Atari will be laying off what sounds like a good number of their employees.

In addition, CEO David Pierce has resigned, most likely jumping ship before it sinks into the sea. This is a sad day for gaming.

We are hoping that this will follow in the footsteps of the Star Wars predecessors and be one uber-amazing game.
