It was a cost savings decision.  The PS3 needed to include one of the graphic chips from the PS2 to offer backward compatibility.    By removing that chip, they save money building the newer PS3s.  Their market research showed most people don't use the feature, so it made sense.

If you can track down the Metal Gear Solid 4 bundle somewhere, that's an 80-Gig that still has backward compatibility.  They're sold out in most places,  but people have said they're still finding them at low-traffic stores like Kmarts and stores off the beaten path.

There's a rumor out there that they're working on a patch that'll allow full software emulation of PS2 games.  But I don't know if it's reliable or not.

You're the first person I've even known not to find Scarlett Johansson to be stunning.

She'd be good, but I picture the new Catwoman as younger.

I could see that happening post-Oscars if Ledger gets consideration.  Still... $100 million is steep for a re-release.

Amazon Gold Box is running video game deals all day, including Gran Turismo 5: Prologue for $23.

Up right now is Blazing Angels 2.  I guess we'll see what the rest of the day holds.

The IMDB thing is wrong.  Those articles say Scarlett Johansson is attached to a film called Amazon.  The same people who wrote Amazon are doing Conan.  But Johansson doesn't have anything to do with Conan.

Me... I'd like to see Scarlett Johansson in a loincloth.

Ah... gotcha.

There's a ladder along the wall on the left of the barrier.  That took me a while to find myself.  Just walk left of the barrier and follow along until you hit the ladder.

Should I get involved with their fight at all ?

Which part are you at?  There's one part where you follow a guy around in the dark streets of Europe.  There's another section where you fight alongside resistance fighters in the Middle East.

They'd be at your door every week wanting to talk.  My wife accepted a pamphlet from an LDS that came to our door one time - she ended up coming back constantly.  She loaned us a book.  (Actually she loaned it to me saying my wife requested it, which she didn't)  Then she came back to see if we'd read it to our girls.  It was educational, you see.  She'd be bugging us to this day if we hadn't moved to another city.

A lot of people do, so it saves them buying redundant (and likely inferior) hardware.  And yeah, an HDMI cable would be nice.  Maybe it'll come standard when most TVs use HDMI.  Seeing how you can get an HDMI cable for around $5 online, I don't see it as a big deal.  I ordered my cable before I even bought the console, but I'm crazy like that.

You can use any Bluetooth headset on the PS3.

Superman has always been about nobility defeating corruption.  Those are his most effective stories.  Authors sometimes try to focus on Superman as the outsider, but I don't think those work.  Superman is more like a rock star, or a quarterback.  People don't shun him because of his superiority... they embrace him.  They're awed by his presence.  And that doesn't make for a grim movie.  You can't be jaded around Superman... it just doesn't make any sense.  This is a guy who spends his life saving the world from catastrophes.  Just because he's nice.  So if they really want to capture his essence in film, they need to approach him from that vantage.  The most recent film made him seem too small, I think.

I've never really had a good grasp on Wonder Woman.  I don't know of any particular reason why she fights.  But she too seems a lighter-hearted character.
