The console wars heat up even more with Microsoft announcing that they will be bundling two games from Sega with every Xbox purchase. It looks like Jet Set radio Future and Sega GT 2002 will come with every new Xbox. Considering that those two games are still retailing for $49.95 it seems like a pretty good deal. Also unlike Sega and their critically successful but financially failed Dreamcast, Microsoft has no limit to the amount of money they can spend to ensure market share for their platform. You can get a new Xbox at the redesigned MobyGames Store.

We had some problems with one of our servers over the last day. Some people might have noticed that they weren't able to submit things to the database, or that some of the images were missing. We apologize for the problem, and wanted to let you know things are back up and running 100%. Thanks for your understanding.

FYI: I rolled out a new release that fixes lots of little problems and also has some minor improvements. We're in the process of rebuilding our search index with some improved searching capibilities. During this time, search results might be incomplete. The index will be completely rebuilt and functional by 18:30 GMT.

The new today is there is no news. Well that is not entirely true. Brian should be releasing a minor rev today to fix some tiny little issues people have been seeing.

Our database server crashed last night. We recently moved to the new server and like an idiot I forgot to apply one of the latest patches. I guess in RedHat 7.3 on SMP servers with EXT-3 filesystem the kernel could panic under certain circumstances. Well last night around 2am was one of those circumstances. It's all good now. We upgraded the kernel and no data was lost. We will be keeping an extra close on eye on things for a while to make sure we are stable.
