While younger gamers have flocked to the brand, more mature consumers remain reluctant to jump on board. Skylanders move forward with trappable enemies, though I doubt it’ll turn stubborn heads.

Quick, grab a ten-dollar bill and kiss it. You won't be seeing it again for a long time.

Why? Because of the vile illuminati at Microsoft, who today announced a new line of value-priced Platinum games for the Xbox. Dubbed the "Best of Platinum" line, these titles will forever more retail at the gleefully ghetto price of $9.99 a pop. That's cheaper than used.

Now don't get all pissy and assume that "value" pricing means "value" games, which as we all know is PR code for "retarded" games, because the majority of these cheapos are actually pretty damn good. You can get a brand new, unscratched, totally functional version of Project Gotham 2, Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow, Soul Calibur II or, in what might be the steal of the century, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. That's about 400 hours of gameplay for 10 dollars, or 40 hours per buck. For the price of Ridge Racer for the 360, you can own all four of these awesome games and have 20 bucks left over for beer. Check out the full list.

Given, many of these games have already taken residence on our shelves and aren't exactly fresh experiences. But they are good, reminding us that when it comes to cost-reward gaming, the next-gen's got nothing on the old guard.
