... Because I'm never going to get any work done now! It rocks!

Brought it on the Thursday night midnight opening thing. I could've waited but it was quite a novelty to do that, of course in Bognor Regis it wasn't like there was any lines anyway.

Got it home, out of the package, hmm.. bit bigger than I remembered started it up. Ooh Yeah!

I don't find the touchscreen at all gimmicky, it is a well worked in way to play games, on the Metroid Demo it played almost like a keyboard-mouse combo on a PC and is easily the best FPS I've played on any 'console' platform!

I also got SuperMario DS with it, absolutley amazing, due to the small screen and higher resoluton it remarkably resembles Mario Sunshine on the GameCube.

The nice people at the store, (who I'm doing my best to get chummy with) also gave me a free 'Touch me' t-shirt! I'm a fanboy! WHOOO!

I must admit that apart from a couple of naughty emulators on my laptop I am a tool of corporate oppression in that I don't really liked getting my things chipped or anyhting like that. I got taken in by the FACT adverts and ended up ratting out my maths teacher or something for operating an illegal copying den from his cellar.

To my mind, there's a world of difference between a homebrew scene (i.e. reverse engineering a piece of hardware in order to develop your own software for it), and piracy.

And despite the dubious legality, again, I see a whole world of difference between emulating obsolete hardware which software is not being released for anymore, and emulating contemporary hardware which you can still buy (hardware and software) in the shops.
