GamesRadar takes day off, nation gives thanks
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving day here in the US. Thus, whether you view this as a moment of peace, when two separate cultures came together to share their lives and pie recipes, or as the beginning of the white man's cruel wresting of the land from the Native Americans, the point is: there's football on TV and food on the table.
So, we're going to give thanks - lots of thanks - and we'll be back on Monday. Save us a leg.

The violence-guzzling action movie-stars at PSM dove out of their limousines today to fire their new magazine into your chest.

Sony today unleashed its latest periodic firmware update for the PSP, but this one is more than just another necessary chore you'll have to undertake before you can play new games. The version 3.00 update adds Remote Play functionality, which enables the handheld to connect with the PS3 and stream music, video and images from the console. PSP owners can also use the PS3's web browser (if for some reason the PSP's just isn't enough), or access the PlayStation Network to check messages and update
Mortal Kombat? King of the bloody games, easy. Doom? No better feeling than perforating demons from hell into pulpy heaps. Dead Rising ? Trauma Center? Gears of War? Yep, yep, yep - seen 'em. You've played these visceral thrills already - hell, everybody
Want a PS3?
Yeah, we know - not everyone who wants a PS3 got one. Hell, most of our staff doesn't have their own units yet. Just as we predicted in our recent feature, a site has popped up to help you find one. Playstation Finder has an email alert system that notifies you immediately whenever a system shows up on an online retailer.

Last night, Sony organized quite the spectacle in San Francisco for the launch of its PlayStation 3. Set at the city-center Metreon shopping plaza, the venue was packed with B-list celebrities (Shaun White), C-list bands (Angels and Airwaves) and A-list executives (Sony executive vice-president and COO, Jack Tretton) whom some people mistook for Phil Collins.

This past week, thousands of diehard Sony fans across the country have foregone sleep and hygiene to camp in line for their chance to be the first to get their hands on a shiny new PlayStation3 at last night's midnight release. On the eve of the PS3's big debut, our friends from PC Gamer magazine made their way through the crowds and hype outside the Sony Metreon in the heart of San Francisco to convert the most zealous Playstation console fans to the PC gaming camp.

After days of hungry, shivering gamers lining up at their local shops - and then being shooed away by sadistic Best Buy management - Sony's next-gen console has landed amid a flurry of cruel crowd-baiting, bean-counting eBay auctioneers and, just maybe, an army of satisfied gamers who'll still be thumbing their SixAxis pads this time Monday morning.
Like last year's Xbox 360 launch, a surreal, apocalyptic air has been hanging around ever since a carload of Kentucky jokers performed a BB-gun
