The biggest story of this week (and maybe the year) in technology was the Consumer Electronics Show, the yearly gathering-of-the-tribes of gadget hounds, geeks, exectutives, curious passerby and the rest of the high technology industry.

Whether you're into the highest hi-def TV or the hottest car audio systems or the smokin'-fastest PCs, you could find it at CES.

Of course G4 was there! Check out our wall-to-wall web coverage here!

That's not all, of course. Our original web series were on fire this week.

Merry Respective Holiday, fellow travelers!

The week was pretty absent of hug, groundbreaking stories, but that doesn't mean nothing happened... not by a longshot!

Here's how the week went down:

The biggest story of the week was the heating up of the cold war between the two music games out there. Previously, the Rock Band camp and the Guitar Hero camp were relatively quiet and respectful of each other. But no longer.

With countless millions on the line, things couldn't stay friendly for that long. The bone of contention: A Rock Band patch for the PS3 that would make GH 4 guitars compatible with the game. Harmonix issued a statement saying the patch was being blocked by Activision... then, later in the week, Activision responded with a sort of nuh-uh, blaming Harmonix and MTV for the lack of a patch.

But that's not all that happened this week by a long shot. Click the break for everything that went down.

The biggest news of the week: Vivendi and Activision merged into one super-publisher: The $18.9 billion dollar deal means Electronic Arts has some serious competition... some are a tad nervous about the effect on their favorite games (like, say, World of Warcraft!) but the company assures gamers that the studios who make the games will keep the same corporate culture they enjoyed before. The exact fallout can't be predicted, but the entire game behind the videogame game just changed forever.

That's not all that went on this week. Click the cut for the rest of the happenings in the world of videogames, popular culture and technology.

This was a heck of a week in videogames, we think you will agree. The "Black Friday."  numbers came in, and everyone claimed victory...except the Record companies...

And, although their weren't too many notable new-release videogames this week, it was a good week to play videogames, and from our perusals of the web, it seems like most people are playing Rock Band and Guitar Hero 3 .

We also took a lot of pictures of the nerdcore girl of the year. (Right)

In spite of the title of the VH1 show where the never-wases make fun of has-beens and wannabes, every week really isn't the Best Week Ever.

But this week, in terms of videogames, might really be the best week ever. The slate of games that hit the street is momentous: Assassin's Creed, Super Mario Galaxy, Crysis, Kane and Lynch, etc. etc. Check out the trailers.

Of course, these huge releases aren't all that happened by a long shot. For a complete list of TheFeed's take on the week that just ended, click the cut!

The biggest story in the world of videogames this week was the release of mega-awesome shooting-things-simulator Call of Duty 4.

Before it came out, the game topped GameFly's want list. Now that it's on shelves, the multi-platform game is in everyone's console, leading some industry analysts to predict it will even outsell juggernaut Halo 3!

In case you haven't seen it, here is some insane multiplayer gameplay footage, and also a trip behind the scenes!

Of course, COD 4 wasn't the only story this week by a long-shot. Click the cut for everything that went down!

This week was, honestly, sort of meh in world of videogames, pop culture and technology. The game industry is lying a little low: Summer is long over, but the Holiday buying season has yet to begin. So we can find no over-arching narrative to the last seven days.

There were winners--Nintendo had to revise their earning estimates to include all the money  they're earning--and losers--Army of Two was delayed because it seem like it isn't good enough yet--but overall, we gots nothing.

See below check out all the week's stories to make up your own narrative.

Capcom pwned the news this week.

While everyone else seemed to lay low, Capcom unveiled a slew of new games, property and surprises, including Street Fighter 4, Devil May Cry 4 in February, A new IP called Dark Void, the return of Bionic Commando, Okami for the Wii, PS3 version of Lost Planet, and even a newly re-tooled Street Fighter 2. Nice, Capcom.

Of course that's not all that went down in the last seven days by a long shot. Check under the break for the week's news.

The biggest story this week in the world of videogames was publishing company Electronic Arts buying two prestigious development houses, Pandemic and Bioware.

Bioware are behind eagerly awaited RPG Sci-Fi epic Mass Effect, where Pandemic are behind Full Spectrum Warrior and upcoming Saboteur. EA says they two companies will maintain their unique cultures...hmmm...I guess we'll have to wait and see whether the acquisition will affect the games.

Of course that's not all that happened this week by a long shot. Click the cut for a comprehensive rundown of all the major stories of the week!

This week in videogames and tech was all about rumors, huge rumors.

Like this one: Bungie, creators of Halo, are splitting up with Microsoft.  It seemed unbelievable on Tuesday, but turned out to be true on Friday. Videogames are like a soap opera!

The other big rumor: A 40Gig PS3 is coming to Europe. This is one of those rumors that seemed true at first, and later turned out to be...true.

Rounding out the news of the "big three" console makers: Nintendo continued to make huge profits; enough to spend 18 million on free Wii-mote condoms without blinking...and that isn't a rumor at all.

But that's far from everything that happened this week. Click the cut for a daily look at everything that happened this week...ribbed for your pleasure.

Hello and welcome to TheFeed's weekly wrap-up. Pull up a chair and set awhile.

The big news this week: The release of a very special video game that will change the industry. Yes, we're talking about  Dance Dance Revolution SuperNOVA 2 for the PS2... oh, and Halo 3 for the 360.

Halo 3's release was the biggest in videogame history, with the title raking in $170 million already. Working people called in sick, and college kids pulled delightful, Halo-themed college-kid pranks.  Even the mainstream media took a look.

It wasn't all gravy. Many reported scratched-up discs, and Microsoft's servers groaned under the collective weight of millions of gamers...and gamers are pretty fat.

Halo wasn't all that happened in the last seven days, though. Under the cut is a look at everything TheFeed considered important this week.

In keeping with the theme of the week, today's Nugget concerns Halo. If you're sick of hearing about Halo 3, how about some news of Halo 4,  Halo 5 (Master Chief and Friends Superstar Adventures In Dreamland) and on up to the final, inevitable Holocaust?

Loading.Ready.Run made this awesome video, "Halo: The Future of Gaming." Click it!
