    I can.. More developers are leaving them because Sony are being so thick in the Head.. and I agree with Wraggster.. Im still pissed at them for closing Lik-Sang.. and they have the nerve to get a patent on teh technology that Nintendo developed.. I guess there getting desperate.. SONY, I hope you go down.. Thats what you deserve for wasting money and materials.

    Well join the group (made by me)!
    Don't buy any more consoles made by Sony, try to buy less of their games if you already own a Playstation (PSP, PS2, or even PS3,) and buy/support a 360 and/or Wii.

    In a capitalist form of economy, YOU the customer have the power. Help us get revenge for lik-sang and Sega!
