VUDU Launches On Xbox 360

By David Ponce

VUDU is a movie streaming service that was acquired by Walmart in 2010. It became relatively popular due in part to the fact that it starts streaming instantly, as opposed to other services which require some buffering time. And it’s been announced that VUDU is now available on the Xbox 360. This means you can purchase or rent movies directly from your console, and if you have Kinect, you can do this with hand gestures or voice control. As an incentive, Walmart is offering a $4.99 credit towards your first rental or purchase.

Custom Made Steampunk Xbox 360 Controller Up For Auction

By David Ponce

Steampunk is a little played out if you ask us, but the attention to detail that seems to have been put in this creation leaves us impressed nonetheless. MorbidStix have gone to work on an Xbox 360 controller and here are some of the highlights:

    Custom Antique Burl Wood Finish
    Skeleton Key Guild Button
    Custom Sticks
    Real Leather (Soft to the touch and VERY comfortable!)
    Copper Rivet Design
    Custom ABXY buttons for an authentic look and feel!
    Triggers and bumpers are wood finish as well!!!

Of course the price is going to keep all but the most serious steampunk aficionados away, as the Buy It Now price is a cool $1,000.
