Thanks for the heads up, Nano. I loved RE4, "tank controls" and all, so I wouldn't really care if they stayed the same. However, it's good to see them changing it up. Hopefully they include both control options into the game.

I'm sure you've already got a PS3 and 360, but there are probably some gamers out there that have yet to get both systems... I suggest you guys check out this Stacker 2 contest going on where you can win one simply by designing a 6 Hour Power t-shirt. It's actually really easy to design one online, and currently there are less than 275 entrants so the chances of winning actually seem pretty decent. For contest details, go here:

By the way, I hope you don't mind me commenting on your post, Nano. I work with 6HP so if anyone has any questions about the contest or the 6HP drink feel free to shoot me an e-mail. Definitely let me know if you enter too, and I'll vote for your designs. Good luck.
