  • Big Air Snowboarding and Rushdown each merit a 1.5 / 5 in this issue. Ouch.
  • Is that a typo I spot, PSM? In your Dino Crisis preview, of all places? For shame...
  • For all the requests they get to increase the size of international section, they sure seem to have a hard time deciding what to do with it.
  • Looks like Sony's stopped selling the Yaroze dev kits by this point, according to the Letters section.
