GTA: Chinatown Wars DS LiteEarlier in the week, the Nintendo World Store in New York celebrated the release of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for the DS. To honor the occasion, there was a special midnight release party with the usual free stuff and special giveaways.

The above DS Lite was one of those giveaways. And yes, I feel your pain and also wish I was there. Lucky bastitches. Check out the GTA:CTW chopstick styluses, which I’m sure gives Nintendo all kinds of ideas about a game that teaches one how to use them.

The latest incarnation is the re-release of Advent Children, and Sony’s celebrating with another special edition console to celebrate it.

The upgraded movie apparently features 30 extra minutes of animation action. The new PS3 itself features a 160GB HDD and a matte “Cloud Black” paint job with Cloud’s Strike Wolf emblem applied on top. The bundle that comes with the movie and includes a demo of Final Fantasy XIII will sell for about $550 in Japan when it arrives next month.

Sony Ericsson W350i: Sex and the City editionTo celebrate the success of the movie, and solely to appeal to the ladies, Sony Ericsson has announced the W350i, Sex and the City edition. It’s a limited edition white W350i that comes with a memory stick preloaded with the movie’s soundtrack, three wallpapers, and the video song, “Labels or Love” by Fergie.

Other specs are the same like the 1.9 inch high-res screen, 1.3 Megapixel camera, GPRS and dedicated music controls on the flap. It won’t make you Sarah Jessica Parker, or any of the other women on the show, but maybe it will give you some fashion cred with your fellow ladies.
