OK, hear us out. We know this video is a few days old, but we just spotted it, and we think it is remarkably well done. The video shows a potential Super Mario Galaxy for the DS, and although we are inclined to believe it's a fake, Camp Gizmodo is a little divided. Check the video out and then jump to see what we made of it. The debate raged on behind the scenes, here's what the weekend team made of it:Mark: Bullshit!... Later Luigi stuff doesn't look fake... you know what it could be, streaming from the Wii. Jesus: Looks totally real to me... I can't imagine anyone recreating that in low poly count. Haroon: Hey guys, are you into elf fetishes? Eric the Intern: I think it's fake... the DS can't render something that nice looking.

Google quietly released a new Chromecast device at its big event this week. And by quietly, I mean the company didn’t mention it at all. It was just sitting in the bottom of the bag that someone gave me when I left the venue. But hey, it’s new and it’s nice-looking. It’s just a bummer Google still hasn’t made Chromecast more useful.
