I have to admit. I feel like those letter grades are giving me a better idea of how the game is rather than 0.5 differences.

Urgh, I hate letter grades.

What's a B- when you convert it to a number?

Isn't there a scale for this shit?

Basically that it will start to close the game game quality-wise with the DS.

Why would there even need to be a scale?

A 'B- experience' seems pretty self-explanatory; numeric translation unnecessary.

Umm this is subjective. Lots of people already think the PSP has a better library...not to mention DS has plenty of it own goodies coming out

I'm pretty sure Europe doesn't have the A to F scale. Then again, even if they don't, its not too hard to grasp.

I like these letter grades much better. Everything looks about right outside the usual DW hate (D's are a little much).


Glad to see Ninja Gaiden DS, Condemned 2, and GoW PSP will all be great titles next month :D

It means that with the recent OH SHIT psp hardware sales worldwide, devs might give the system a 2nd shot with software to see if the software can ever get to the positive side of OH SHIT in sales and not just the negative one.

You know what I mean.

I just added a little extra into that rumor. That should explain things a bit better. Now I just need to read the GTA IV article in-depth to fulfill NeoUltima's request.

What do you need a number for? Haven't Ever attended School?

A > B > C > D > F

I don't see the challenge in understanding this.

About the RE5 rumour, why was everyone from GAF to the media so unequivocally certain that RE5 was a 2009 or later title? I never heard a reason for these suggestions, just that it was a long ways off.

The board is supposed to be able to withstand 660 lbs of fatty, so this sounds suspect.

Oh and RE5 in 2008 please.
