I get almost all my net gaming news at http://plusd.itmedia.co.jp/games/ currently. I always have time on the train, not at work, so I usually just buy a copy of weekly famitudo at the platform.

crap, now I'm confused
last time I heard P2P, it meant pay to play
but it seems to be something like a torrent program in this threat

Unfortunately TLAs are overloaded, P2P means Pay 2 Play and Peer 2 Peer

This is why I always keep Acronym Finder at my fingertips. This makes it easy when a TLA I think I know is used in a new or different context.

I checked out that IDMedia site and it was ok but I would like something more graphics-intensive. More multimedia rather than purely news. Actually I had a problem with IDMedia's pictures because they seemed to be referred from another site. Dunno why they didn't load even if they were referred -- must be a setting I have with my firewall.
