Come one, come all to a new edition of Next Gen News, CraveOnline’s weekly gaming podcast with your hosts Joey Davidson, Alex Keen and myself, Erik Norris. This is episode #72 and this is the news…

This week’s program covers two hot topics currently taking the gaming industry by storm. Firstly, Nintendo has dropped the price of the 3DS by $80 to $169.99. We discuss the important of the price drop and if it will save the 3DS from becoming the next Virtual Boy. Secondly, Blizzard has announced that Diablo III will incorporate a real currency auction house where gamers can potentially make actual money hawking their virtual items in-game. We take some time to dissect this news and discuss what it could potentially mean for players who actually like to earn their virtual items. Then things get wacky as we close out this week’s show, so make sure you stick around until the end for a multitude of penis jokes. Seriously, they come fast and furious (that’s another one right there, wa-zing!).
