Nelson: Ha ha!
This just reported by ON24.COM .. Sony recalls 1.2 million software discs (there .. happy?) due to the problems with the DVD software, and the fact that users can punch in certain keypad sequences during boot up to allow the unit to play foreign movies not intended for the Japanese market.

Again, the Planet proves itself the premiere source for awful puns.
Yahoo! Yahoo! A pirate's life for me .. OK, corny pun. Ever been through the Pirates of the Carribean at Disneyland? Too close to resist .. sorry .. sue me, I have no assets.
Anyway, it seems that Nintendo, Sega, and EA are filling a lawsuit against Yahoo! for aiding and abetting known software piraters. And rightly they should! I'm sure you've heard this already, but here it again in glorious audio at the link above.

A GBA Delay is looking more and more likely and here's some reasons why...
Obviously most of us here at Planet N2000 aren't holding their breath for a Fall release of the GBA. With the GBC selling so well (and generally no competition), it would be pointless for Nintendo to feel the need to release the new handheld. Not that 95% of the people that read this rag wouldn't purchase it upon release. Heh heh. Here's a few chunks of fun of other possible reasons why the system may be delayed.

Hideo Kajima plays dumb about Dolphin, sorta... We think something could be up!
Computer and Video Games Magazine recently spoke with Hideo Kajima from Konami (Metal Gear). Not a whole lot is said here. Personally, I think it's a lot of crap. "I don't know much about Dolphin." Yeah, right. And then he goes on to talk about it's similarities to the other systems. Interesting contradiction.... Read more...
