    Great job!

    The first spoiler should be titled NGP pic instead of 3DS pic, though. [​IMG]

    You also have the "Does it have PSP backwards compatibility" twice.

    There are people who would ask such a question.

    Nothing wrong with including it in the FAQ.

    no no thats not what i meant [​IMG]
    I mean for me personally. If i want to play my UMDs there should be a way to get them downloaded or something. Like if you have the original box or something, SONY should make some way that you could be able to play them.

    I in no way mean that its dumb that you included that info lol
