    I like the sound of that :)

    On a kind of related note do you think the shelf life of games will ever grow. At present it seems with the exception of the bigest sellers that most games are available at retail for a matter of months and then they're gone. Some even vanishing for good - The fact that you can't buy a new copy of Ico seems crazy. So its like games have to sell instantly or they fail. There's no chance for games to build in the same way that some CDs and DVDs do, which seems counter productive for both retail and publishers?
