The rock band The Romantics are suing Activision because of the song "What I Like About You," which has a cover version on

Jack Tretton, our favorite CEO of a failing division, had this to say:
When we designed PS3 our goal was to introduce a system so technically advanced that it could stand the test of time and could take the industry in a whole new direction, which for PS3 was high-definition entertainment. While we're excited by the progress we've made this first year, we know that like our other platforms, the best is still yet to come, especially given our new hardware and software line-up, and that PS3 will continue to take the industry to new heights for years to come.
So, the new Xbox Originals service, launching December 4, will not have achievements. Microsoft says the reason is to keep the integrity of the original gaming experience. So, the games will be available as they were at launch.
