"But prices may rise in short term.. Acer Taiwan President Scott Lin said that the PC supply chain still has two or three months worth of stock and that the earthquake in Japan will only have limited impact on the market. With OEMs, brands and retailers each having about one month's worth of inventory, the supply should be fine for up to three months. However as Lin pointed out, Japan’s power grid is an important factor and taking it online sooner rather than later will be crucial to whether the shortages become more serious."
"Microsoft has not said anything publicly yet about their real plan for a new next generation console beyond the Xbox 360, but recent job recruiting and postings seem to suggest that Microsoft is starting to get its ducks in a row (so to speak) to move forward with the development of the successor to the Xbox 360.

While this is definitely too late for the PSP to come anywhere near the high-flying competition, it’s probably not too little for users who now need to pay $40 less.
"Still a few weeks away More than 30 Sandy Bridge motherboards based on the new B-3 stepping are currently listed in Europe, but none of them are actually available. It will take a few weeks for vendors to ship them in any significant volumes and most people in the know expect them in early April. Vendors don’t appear to have gone to great lengths to yank bug ridden 6-series boards from retail and many of them, including major players like Asus, Gigabyte and MSI are still available. Some shops even carry Intel boards."
"No more mystery about if it is happening It seems that the waiting and wondering if Blizzard will finally enter the console market is coming to an end. Blizzard is confirmed to be hiring a senior producer specifically for the console version of Diablo III and they are moving forward on this project..."
