Are warehouse and loft living too passé and not edgy enough for you? Do you want to get your espionage on and live the life of a secret service agent?

Well you can for the cool asking price of $7.4 million.

There's an enormous tunnel complex in central London for sale which used to house Britain's secret service, as well as 400 tons of government documents. It was a bed of American and Soviet activity during the Cold War, and it even served as a bomb shelter for London residents during World War II.

The BT Group, Britain's largest phone company, is selling this one mile underground corridor with adjacent rooms. While London's property value above ground is seeing its biggest decline in decades, the company hopes the site's unique factors will lure buyers.

Sony has counterpunched in reaction to rumors leaked yesterday from an anonymous source who supposedly attended a staff meeting at Sony. There is no planned price cut for the PlayStation 3 in March of 2009.

Say goodbye to your price drop, fans. Although, a lack of plans to drop the price doesn't mean it won't happen. Still, our advice to you is, if you've got the cash and you want the system, buy the dern thing. Little Big Planet will blow your mind and MGS 4 is no slouch, neither.

Also factor in that Sony has been losing money on the PS3 since day one and the tightening global economy and you can understand why they would resist a price drop despite being the most expensive console on the market by a considerable margin.

Smithers, release the fanboys!

Today's flamebait article relates to how fast a game gets tossed to the bargain bin at retailers. According to a study from Electronic Entertainment Design and Research, Nintendo Wii titles are the fastest to have their publisher's price-per-unit cost dip.

Typically when a retailer gets games delivered to them cheaper, they drop the price so that the consumer is more tempted to make the purchase, meanwhile they maintain their mark-up percentages. When the average selling price of a game drops by 20% for 3 consecutive months, this is called "price protection."

The study showed that "Over 7.5% of Xbox 360 and 9.09% PS3 third-party published titles go into price protection early. The Wii, however, nearly doubles the Xbox 360 and PS3s average at 15.1%... This disparity on the Wii reinforces concerns that the market has had with third-party publishers developing successful titles on the Wii," explained EEDAR analyst Jesse Divnich.

Take that, Wiifans, wherever you are! Today's flamebait post is brought to you by The Xbox 360.*

About a week ago, Sirius and XM started to consolidate their content over the satellite radio airwaves as they officially joined forces. In the end, this has resulted in many of the more daring stations from XM to become a little toned down, consolidated or even completely removed altogether.

Users could have guessed this fate but some are outraged that there was no warning or communication about what changes would be made. Luckily, the new, and only, satellite radio juggernaut offers different subscription plans, including one that gives the option to select a 50-station set instead of getting the full boat unnecessarily.

Still, 52% of subscribers are unsatisfied or planning to cancel after the changes went into effect last week. This is according to a poll posted on an XM fanboy forum. So, while it's not very scientific and presumably only represents XM users which is where most of the cuts happened, its at least representative in some way.

Microsoft Launches Online Store

While some may consider it a bit of a late start, Microsoft is launching an online store. You can download software like Windows and Office, but for obvious reasons, do so at your own risk:

"The obvious fear for most users buying ESD products is not having the software on physical media to re-install the product at a later time."

However, Microsoft will allow you to re-download products until mainstream support for the product ends.  Usually, that ends after five years.  Of course, you have the option of copying the download should you wish to access it beyond what the mainstream lifetime will support it.
