UFC president, Dana White, officially released him after the disagreement, Fitch was quoted as saying "I'm more than willing to work with them, but I don't see why we have to give up our whole lives for this," Why not a time limit? If we did a 10-year deal with them, is that that unreasonable? I don't understand how this happened, honestly. It's tough.".

A post in PETA's official blog explains why they do it: "If you're wondering why we're picking on poor Mama, it's probably because you've never played the original games. They are so heavy on dishes made from dead animals that the only things missing are the blood and the slaughterhouse. So in the name of accuracy and honesty, PETA decided to introduce a little horror into Mama's kitchen!"
Majesco, the publisher of the Cooking Mama games, responded with a post on its site: "Food lover and culinary cutie Cooking Mama is a virtual chef who believes that good home cooked food, properly prepared from the best ingredients, can bring people together around the table and make the world a happier place. That's why Mama is taking a stand with oven mitts raised high against the latest PETA objection targeting her freshly released videogame, Cooking Mama World Kitchen.

See a picture of the console here.
Among the games already announced are Quake, Crash Nitro Kart and Fifa 08, Need for Speed: Carbon and Prey. Besides ports from platforms including the PC, PSP and even Gizmondo, Tec Toy mentioned the interest of big companies like EA to develop specific games for the new platform. Graphic-wise, the console is somewhere between the PSOne and PS2. Tec Toy also promised a motion sensitive controller.
The console is primarily aimed at the Brazilian market (estimated release date is October 2009), but the company intends to release it abroad if it proves its worth. In a piracy-ridden country, the download distribution scheme aims to prevent great losses, but the console's initial cost doesn't seem very attractive: R$ 599,00 (circa US$ 260,00), about the same one could pay for a PS2, a much more well established platform.
Happy anniversary Game Boy Color !
