In the latest Bethesda Newsletter, the publisher revealed a few more details on the first downloadable content for Obsidian's Fallout: New Vegas, dubbed "Dead Money".

While we can't have fun with the numbers the same way we used to, the NPD Group has released the October NPD listing in its new, 'slimmer' form.

Jumping ahead in the hardware space was the Nintendo DS, taking over after a four-month consecutive hold the Xbox 360 had in the United States.
