Tomorrow the CES kicks off, and while most of the exhibition is centered on technology/electronics and gadgets, there will probably be a few game announcements left and right, like Microsoft's new Game Room initiative.

In late 2008, we went to see Nine Inch Nails when they were in town for their Lights In The Sky tour, which was without a doubt one of the best concerts we've ever seen. For a variety of reasons, NIN was unable to capture it professionally for a theatrical or commercial release, so instead they released raw HD footage from three different shows to the fans and see what they could come up with. For 12 months, a core team of dozens of fans and a network of thousands spanning the entire globe pooled their efforts to create a professional-quality 1080p 5.1 concert film, and they have released it in every format, from Blu-ray and DVD to iPod and YouTube.
