Let's make it clear right now -- the Consumer Electronics Show isn't really about video games.  Sure, they definitely have a place in the consumer electronic world when it comes to entertainment, but the show is more focused on the technological side, with gadgets, TV's and other high-priced technology that's really out there.  But some game companies managed to show up anyway and show off their wares, so we've got the wrap-up on what we saw, and whether it was really worth it.  Let's get started...


Sony has become known as of late to release a series of high-definition collections for the PlayStation 3, including a pair of God of War games and the Sly Cooper games, as well as Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.  Well, chalk up three more PS2 favorites that are coming to the system this February, as the company has officially announced that Jak and Daxter Collection is on the way.


Sometimes a success story can be something as simple as making something in a garage -- and Steve Jobs proved that.  In 1976, he helped build the world's first personal computer, revolutionizing the industry as we knew it -- even though it would take years to get started.  Now, Apple is practically everywhere with all sorts of tech, one of the world's biggest companies.  But alas, it is now without its leader, as Steve passed away earlier today at the age of 56, after a long-standing fight with cancer.


Back when Mortal Kombat released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in April, the $149 Tournament Edition came packaged with a deluxe fighting stick, one that mimicked an arcade-style set-up.  However, a few folks thought the stick was a little too bulky for its own good, despite the authenticity.  Well, over the next few weeks, PDP will resolve that problem by introducing a new Mortal Kombat Klassic Fight Stick to the market, one that arcade fans will instantly recognize -- and probably pre-order.
