Coolest-Gadgets is reporting that Ben Heck, famous gaming tinkerer has placed the innards of a new Xbox 360 controller into one of the original huge Xbox controllers (reviled by some). Personally, I enjoyed the Xbox controller, it felt right in my hands. The newer Xbox Controller -S was just too dinky.

Joystiq has posted the trailer for Seaman 2. If you recall, Seaman was a very creative title for the Sega Dreamcast where you would ‘grow’ this little tadpole into a virtual Seaman who would respond to your commands through a microphone.

Wired has posted a story in which Gordon Moore predicts his own law (the one that states computer processing power will double every two years) will be physically impossible in ten to fifteen years. He states this as once a processor gets to be less than 1nm you cannot make a processor of 0nm. Eventually it just physically doesn’t exist. This law, of course, is based on transistors which can be fit on a processor. There is nothing saying that at some point a whole new method of processing won’t be invented, which would create a new version of Moore’s Law.
Joystiq has posted their impressions of Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures with plenty of preview goodness to go around. The MMO is slated for March of next year on the Xbox 360 and PC platforms.
