So the PSP has launched and after a crazy adventure I managed to score one. Four days later the lineup for Nintendo DS units at my local Toys R Us was five times longer than the lineup for Sony’s PSP. A harbinger of the future perhaps? For all the fervent interest in the PSP it […]
Unknown to more or less everyone, I give you the Korean Vistar, a recycled TurboGrafx-16. As far as I know this is the first bit of information about it in the western world.
