After looking at that header image, I’m sure that Ginny Weasley from Harry Potter ain’t seeming so bad anymore, right?

A lot of people seemed to have come away from the Incredible Connection sale pretty happy with their cheap purchases, although we have also heard that a lot of the stores had their major attention pullers like DJ Hero and Heavy Rain completely “booked” out by their own staff and some other folks, which left a lot of gamers disappointed. This, especially because people who enquired yesterday were told that bookings weren’t allowed.

We also have a cool little Flash game for you to play today called Solipskier, so do yourself a favour and check it out as well as the great art gallery posted below.

Here’s the news we didn’t post we were too busy drawing awesome ski slopes in Solipskier.
