Well I've no problem importing the GBA version

Noticed that a few people mentioned UMD recorders, as far as I know Sony don't plan on making the UMD a public platform (probably to combat piracy), but this means any films will have to go through sony which could put some companies off as it would probably be cheaper to go with just DVD It also me...

Why would you want one of those - according to that site it has 21 game demos, and you can't use game cartridges

Shall I be the first to point out the title says "video games" and then it has a list of ten games consoles...

Suppose this is just based on eBay sales? and therefore completely pointless and meaningless (although this would apply for any chart ranking games consoles)
