If you have been waiting for the right time to pounce on a PlayStation 4 system, now is that time, assuming you are a fan of Spider-Man. You can head over to Amazon and grab a PlayStation 4 Slim console with 1TB of storage and Marvel's Spider-Man game for $199. That's $100 off the regular selling price. Sony had given consumers a heads up about this discounted bundle last week, noting that it would go on sale starting November 18 and run through November 26.

Variety reported late Tuesday night that Sam Raimi has signed to direct the "World of Warcraft" movie. The movie will be titled "Warcraft," possibly leading to a "Warcraft 2, 3, etc." if things go well. Based on the popularity of the MMORPG, can there be any doubt that the movie will be a hit, at least in the first weekend? The movie hasn't exactly been spending to the big screen: Blizzard made a deal with Legendary Pictures for a film adaptation of the game way back in 2006. The film's producers will include "Dark Knight" producer Charles Roven, his Atlas producing partner Alex Gartner, Legendary's CEO Thomas Tull, Legendary's chief creative officer Jon Jashni, along with Raimi and his producing...
