Just recently a 3 part Demo video was posted on the Elder Scrolls Facebook page, featuring the Demo footage of Skyrim that was originally shown at E3 and then later Pax. The video shows some of the best that Skyrim has to offer like it's lush and beautifully detailed landscapes, it's new improved UI that allows you to view and manipulate items in 3D, it's ancient Norse inspired architecture, as well as it's numerous individually hand crafted dungeons.
Not long ago Bioware started a facebook contest to see which of the 6 lovely candidates would make it as the new default female Shepard. in the fist round the blonde adaptation of Shepard won by a considerable amount of votes, but in this reveal VIDEO hosted by Jennifer Hale (FemSheps voice actress) round two the redheaded Shepard won with a landslide victory, trumping all of the other contenders.
This Shepard will be featured on the cover of the collectors edition box art as well as be included as the new default character model in Mass Effect 3. I'm glad to see fans share my opinion that this new Shepard is undoubtedly badass and thanks to their votes, I know who I am going to be playing as in Mass Effect 3.

Information on the Diablo III auction house has been released and boy does it look awesome. With the auction house Blizzard intends to link all players together over Battle.net and allow them to trade, buy, and sell loot to players in their region. Blizzard wants the market to be regulated by the players, so at first prices may be in accurate and high but over time it should level, much like in auction house of World of Warcraft.
The will still be a gold based auction house to choose from but no real currency will be used in it, it is comparable to the WoW action house's buying and selling method of in-game currency. With the real money auction house you will be able to use the money as credit toward buying blizzard products or you may send you money through a third party and get it converted into real money for you bank account, however with this option a nominal fixed transaction fee will be deducted from the seller for each item listed in the auction house. Specific details for the fee will be announced in the future. In order to keep the market fair and fun there will be guidelines set to keep players from spamming worthless items no one would want and the will also be a strong lack of "soulbound" items, which prevent the trade and sell of items. Some items from quests and special situations will be soulbound to the player, but in most cases a player can buy, wear, then resell these items.
Coming from someone who's favorite feature of WoW was the auction house, this addition to Diablo III sounds like a great idea and who knows, maybe Diablo III will end up paying for itself.

Will PlayStation Vita be Released in October 28th?
This update from IGN tells of a possible release date for the PlayStation Vita. The post talks of a Blockbuster advertisement in the UK that shows release dates for both versions of Vita (See Below)
The concept of Halo Anniversary is really excited for classic halo fans like me, allowing us to get that experience and feeling that we got from playing Halo Combat Evolved. With 343 Industries adopting Halo from Bungie, I am a little worried that Halo will not feel the same as it does from Bungie, but at least I know that even though 343 is working on Anniversary it will still be the same as classic Bungie Halo CE.
If you have ever played a game on PC and then on console you can clearly see the difference between the two. More frames per second and higher texture resolutions make the PC a great system for gaming but at a much higher price than their console counterparts. When we have seen gameplay footage of Battlefield 3 it has always been from a PC, that is until now. IGN got their hands on battlefield 3 for PS3 and this is what they have to say on the subject matter–
— "Battle remains intense on the console, and the action fun. As expected, Battlefield 3 on PS3 doesn't look as good as its PC counterpart — but it was surprising to see the degree of difference between the versions."
Its been confirmed that Battlefield 3 runs at 30 frames per second on consoles and at 60 on PC but we wont know for sure till we see the finished product in October.
– "Battlefield 3 remains smooth on PS3, with a steady framerate and slick character animation. The game looks good, don't get me wrong, but with so many elements missing from the build, it's difficult to discern how the framerate will handle the complexities of bigger maps, buildings falling, jets dropping bombs and helicopters tearing through the skies"
