It will, sonys Fullproof PSP that wouldnt ever need a forced firmware update lived up to its name for what a few months???
Personally 50$ isnt to much for a game you love and get hours upon hours of time out of. IE Final Fantasy 7, even though I paid full price for it, it was worth every dime.
80$ is outrageous for anything short of an epic masterpice, and this will stab the gameing population in the jugular. I can see 60$ as a hike in hardware can lead to more $$, even for the simple fact a Blue-Ray ROM disk probably costs more then a DVD ROM.
