After a strong critical reception and intense advertising campaign, Mass Effect 2 the sequel to Mass effect had an excellent opening day in the Americas. According to VGChartz preliminary estimates, around 500,000 copies of the game were sold on day one on Xbox 360 itself(PC sales were not tracked). If this goes as expected how it will go then the total sales should surpass 700,000 in the Americas by this coming week.
This week could be close to one million units worldwide on Xbox 360 – in line with the launch of Fable II back in October 2008. The original Mass Effect sold 2.1 million copies on Xbox 360 in total and 400,000 in week one – Mass Effect 2 will comfortably outperform that in this coming week.The other big release this week is MAG: Massive Action Game. Day one sales stand at around 140,000 units and the title should be good for a week one of just over 200,000 units.So have you bought yet !

Rest of the images can be found via Engadget(pics by noted iPhone jailbreaker chpwn, who sent in the above screenshot from a hacked-up copy of the iPad simulator.)
So what’s special in iPhone OS 3.2, let me tell your in brief about it.Some of it’ s features are listed below.
That is all with the feature listing which you would see in iPhone OS 3.2.One more confirmed news is the support for video calling.Engadget confirmed this from their extremely trusted sources that iPhone OS 3.2 contains rudimentary support for video calling, which could explain that mysterious space at the top of the device.There are hooks to accept and decline a video conference, flip a video feed (which suggests a front-facing camera) and — most importantly — run the video call in either full screen mode or in just a portion of the screen. That means you’ll be able to chat and do other things at the same time, which could mean there’s at least some type of multitasking going on here.chpwn was also able to port iPhone multitasking hacks ProSwitcher and Backgrounder to the iPad simulator, which is certainly going to be useful if an iPad jailbreak exploit is eventually discovered.
