yea i know its no BC. i already have a ps2 which never really gave me any problems and resale value is near worthless to me. so 40 gig will work fine for me, and i only have like 2-3 games on ps2 that i actually still play so no major loss. back on topic, when i dl the japanese demo will the gtr/is-f/etc already be unlocked? other than that, cant wait to try things out and see if all the talk is true.
