I have read about this before over on the IGN boards. There were a few people that were talking about the same problem.. Maybe there will be a patch released or something to help fix it. I just do not understand what happened to quality control ? I mean did they not put the game in a PS3 and turn it off and then back on ? I would think that would be a basic thing to do.
Nintendo can't say anything right now because of a stock deal of some sort. I think there is more in store for us Wii owners but just what it is I am not sure. Nintendo has said that there will be more channels coming but what they will be who knows.
As far as the UMD storage is concerened you could take a look over at Amazon.com. They have a good selection and there are several reviews by customers so you fan get an idea of what might be best. I use the site to check things out and then see if I can find them in town.
I too am interested in getting a PSP and have thought about waiting for a price cut. If for example the price cut came in the fall I would be more inclined to buy now because I think you would get the extra 50 dallors worth of use out of it. On the other hand if you are thinking there might be hardware upgrade of some kind then waiting is the best bet. There are so many fun looking games for the system now that I think I will dive in sooner than later.
