I think the only real complaints on watchmen came from people who were big fans of the graphic novel. I could see how someone who hadnt read the comic might think it was one of the better superhero movies out there.

Name me one game that has come out for both the psp and another console and that other console didnt have two analog sticks

Wii doesnt have two analog sticks as standard, though some of the multiplatform stuff includes the PS2 which does:

Just to name a few:
Tenchu Shadow Assassins
Metal Slug Anthology
Williams Pinball Hall of Fame
Prince of Persia Rival Swords

GBA doesnt have any analog sticks:

Yggdra Union (GBA/PSP)
Riviera (GBA/PSP)

Now that Sony Computer Entertainment has been merged into the divisions that house the Vaio and Walkman, it'll be harder to get numbers for them going forward. Microsoft Entertainment & Devices also includes the Zune.

I did correct myself on the show also, the better question would have been what previous or in development game would be made unplayable by adding a 2nd stick?

@Wombat

Wasnt the argument for not adding a second nub that Developers would have to add 2 VERY different control schemes going forward so that games would be playable on older psps? Besides I dont see the point of adding such a dramatic change if it's not a new console, you're basically pissing off your current install base by doing that since you are essentially making all current gen psps "inferior"

Here's why the Wii will have to take up the HD format- the sales for the Wii have already dropped considerably and soon everyone will have a wii, nintendo then cannot sell anymore wii's> the answer to which is take up the HD format by releasing a new console and making people buy it.

By removing the UMD drive they have already caused a rift in the PSP market, why not actually improve the console in the process.

My Wii fried itself in the first 6 months of ownership (hence the sarcastic CAG username), the first replacement they sent didn't work and had to be sent back. Look up "Wii Artifacts" if you need to know what happened. When that happened, I broke down and got a 360, as I was somewhat fearful of the red-ring. I red-ringed a year later, but I play the 360 WAY more than that Wii.

I heard you talking about loving Red Faction again in this podcast. I bought the game based on the CAGcast recommendation. I finally finished the single player game last night. I've got to say, I don't see where the love is coming from. It wasn't a bad game, but driving around in a red desert for 20 hours wasn't all that great.

Is the only reason Cheapy loves it is because it was made by the guys who made Saints Row? :)

Thank you for your concern about my well being, no Nintendo reps have kidnapped me yet, however I have noticed a white plastic truck following me recently. Anyway, Cheapy congrats on the Geotrax score. They are great toys, I am jealous, I would love to stumble onto that deal for any parts of the whole system because they are expensive, but my son loves them.

Wombat, don't sound so embarrassed about the 26" Insignia, that is the same TV I have in my bedroom and they are great, especially for a bedroom TV for the size and cost. They are less expensive but they are certainly not cheap as far as quality and durability. My company buys insignia monitors for all of the computers because they last a long time and just cost less. I believe that Insignia while being Best Buy house brand is manufactured by Samsung and I have not had a quality issue with any Insignia TV or monitor that I bought or have used. Of course that is for a bedroom TV, I wouldn't put one in my living room but that is not to say that it wouldn't be just as good, I am just a brand snob.

I love the remote holder that comes with it, I haven't lost the remote once since we got this TV.

Thanks for the collision video, the slow mo replays are classic.

PSP Go shouldn't have been another iteration of the PSP, it should have been a backwards compatible PSP2. This would allow for an improvement like a second analog stick, removal of the UMD drive and justification of the price. The PSP could have faded out, not every system needs a 10 year life span, especially a portable.
