DISCUSSION

@DelSource: No Nintendo didn't invent it, but they were the first to put it in a video game console. You have to admit the whole thing reaks of "me too". Sony and MS seem to be trying to make all in one boxes with a million features, but leave out stuff that normal average non-ubertechy joe consumer would probably want in an all-in-one box. Nintendo got some of that in their box and it just seems like someone at Sony's Playstation deptartement saw that and ran with it.
