Whether you think it's worth it is up to you. Just pretend it doesn't exist and be happy with the games while those who wanted this version of the PSP will be happy with it. I promise you that month's "pick up thread" will be filled with them none the less. :lol
Honestly, even though Apple sells the shit out of the Touch and iPhone, it's a shitty platform for gaming. People buy the games because they're cheap, not necessarily because they're good. Can you imagine what a phone that plays DS games would sell? That's the market I think Sony has an opportunity in.
