Who actually counts load times by how long it takes to get into the game from the dashboard? There's difference between the boot-up time and loading time, which is from the point that you click to start a race to when the loading screen is gone. As an avid fan of sports games, the load times in MNR aren't offensive to me. I'm eager to see word of when the loading patch happens, but it won't keep me from playing more of the game.
Also, PSP2 won't be out this year since the 3DS won't be out this year either. Nintendo just launched the DSi XL a few months ago and launching a new device six months later would be insane, even for Nintendo. That's why Nintendo is dropping the prices of the DS/DSi models since they're not cocky enough to price the 3DS above the Wii.
I already have Hulu on the PS3 and Xbox 360 through PlayOn and if Netflix is a sign of what to expect of a Hulu app, it'll be much slower and clunkier than the alternatives.
It's weird that you guys can enjoy a game that much and still mess up the name all of the time (3D Dot Game Heroes).
