For those who decided to brave the sticky, smelly masses and attend Comic Con, this is a week of celebration. For those who didn’t, however, it’s a week of regret, with heaping helpings of that uncomfortable sinking feeling supplied by your good friends on the Internet. Case in point: the above red hot Street Fighter IV arcade pad.
The pad’s a Comic Con-exclusive, and only 500 will be available — 250 for the Xbox 360 and 250 for the PS3. It’s selling for the steep price of $179.99. But then, Comic Con’s all about wanton spending and nerdy excess, so we don’t think Capcom will have too much of a problem getting these things off their hands.

After announcing that Bethesda was working an iPhone game at Comic Con yesterday, Todd Howard spoke his mind on Nintendo’s Wii, saying that he was “not threatened” by the console because “it’s a toy.”
MTV’s Stephen Totilo brought the subject up, and Howard said that from a consumer’s point of view “the Wii is a kids’ toy,” and the public thinks that “the PS3 and Xbox 360 are for evil killfests”.
NewsWeek’s N’Gai Croal responded to Todd’s remarks by mentioning the sales advantage Wii has, to which the Bethesda boss retorted that “the Wii is not a threat” because it caters to games that are vastly different to those his team develops.
Thanks, That VideoGame Blog.

Howard himself is in charge of the project, apparently, although he provided attendees with no specifics.

The reveal will come s part of a panel discussion with Ed Boon and DC Comics collaborator Jimmy Palmiotti titled, “Worlds Collide: The Making of Midway’s Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe”.
Sounds awesome. Hopefully someone will take a video camera.

Epic boss Mark Rein has told videogaming247 that the Game Informer Gears of War 2 article that hit the web yesterday is just a “tidbit”, and that the best is very much to come.
“Awesome,” said Rein when asked how excited he was about the title. “I’ve had a chance to read the Game Informer story now and I think when people get a chance to read it they’ll see that [Gears 2 is] really good. And we told the Game Informer guys just a tidbit about the game. We showed them some stuff, obviously, but we’re keeping a lot of information back that will make people go, ‘It’s even better than this.’ As good as they say it is, and they really, really like it, there’s still a lot of story to open up between now and when the game ships in November… I think people will really enjoy this game.”
Rein didn’t say when we were going to see more, however, and expanded on the fact that Gears 2 will definitely not be seen at Comic Con in New York later this month, putting the fact the event issued a press release saying the game was going to appear at the show down to crossed wired.
“I’d say [Comic Con was] over zealous,” he said. “Mike Capps, who’s our president, and Joshua Ortega, who’s the writer on Gears 2, will be on a panel there together, so I’m sure they’ll be talking about things to do with the process around making Gear 2. I think that’s probably where it got confusing. We’re not demoing anything, but we’ll still have a chance to talk about the game.”
Update: There are some hi-res scans of the article at Vito’s Verdict.

Following a press release saying there would be a games panel at Comic Con in New York later this month, and that Gears of War 2 would be shown at the event, Epic boss Mark Rein has seemingly clarified that the mega-sequel won’t be shown at all.
“I’m not aware that we’re showing anything there,” Rein told videogaming247.
The original release said that “the [event’s] gamer summit will begin with a presentation… discussing the origin of the Gears of War saga, its unprecedented success, and offering a glimpse into this year’s upcoming Gears of War 2.”
Sounds like Mr Comic Con may have his wires crossed, then.
