I look forward to all the additional content for my beloved games, however any additional content with a price tag associated to it will be under a lot of scrutiny from yours truly.

That “Nintendo’s Fall” article from Edge was a good read, but I’m not too crazy with the title of it. “Nintendo’s Fall”? Fall from first place? The Nintendo 64 and GameCube weren’t the most successful Nintendo consoles, but Nintendo did not “fall” — at least not like how Sony is falling in this console generation. I would love to get into this topic some more, but Ryan Scott already took the time to explain my view on the article. I suggest you read that.

As for the PSP rumors? They are certainly promising. At this rate, Sony will have released at least one significant PSP revision per year for the past three years.
