...you do know the reason why they went for this? they could've bootstrapped it themselves before shipping, but they didn't for legal reasons. other than that, assuming the firmwares are updated, they have really good compatibility, plus it's drag & drop too. no patching or anything before being able to play a game.
and i don't remember Wood working on EDGE (or an iEDGE), so i really have no idea where you're getting on with that... :/
