We use 7-Eleven for all sorts of purposes it wasn't intended. For instance, since our diet consists solely of pizza burritos and bags filled with two different flavors of Doritos, it's pretty much our grocery store. They're happy with our custom, but they're not satisfied. 7-Eleven wants our video...

I awake with a pounding headache. Where am I? I stumble toward the nearest doorway -- into a nightclub. The bartender greets me. "Welcome to the 7-1-1 Club," he says.

7-Eleven, bastion of the 2AM munchies, has announced plans to expand its video game offerings. The company's current stratagem is to offer seven titles over the holiday season (like Wrath of the Lich King, Fallout 3, CoD:WaW, Gears 2) "while supplies last."

The only time we ever saw a PLAYSTATION Network card was when Sony gave us one for Christmas. Never -- not even once -- have we seen these cards available at a retail store.
