Oddly enough, I have noticed that if I place games in the mail Friday or Thursday I get them back by Monday. However if i wait for Saturday normally it takes them until Thursday to ship.
Simple answer either ship it back Friday or early in the week Monday or Tuesday and the turnaround time is faster.
It boils down to the flooding of the FPS genre. in the last 12 years we have had so many FPS games most people are of the opinion "oh goody another one". While not exactly fair it is exactly the same thing that happened in the Strategy genre on pc about 5 years ago.
Its not a question of worth rather its a question of product availability. According to the way sony is acting I believe the USA will not be receiving the product first. (they discontinued the PSP-Go in both Europe and Japan this year but not in America most likely in preparation of the sell.) ...its the PS3 launch all over again.
The system is again cutting age, and will most likely sell at 400, and would be tough to drop it below 350. They talk about this being the handheld console they will most likely give you the console price.
Watch out, Sony has been hit very hard economically they will make to make their money back as quickly as possible.
the PSP-GO is considered one of the worst incarnations of handheld systems around. unlike the PSP of early generations all games are digital, and therefore cannot be sold once purchased.
In addition, the PSP-GO production is ending in both Japan and Europe, however, in America they are still producing units through next year. What this most likely means is that the NGP (or psp2) will not be shipping to America until Christmas 2012 or later.
I own a 3DS and I believe it has huge potential while the starting game line up isn't very good by Christmas the game library should really start looking good.
A good source of just 3DS news is here http://3dstribe.com/
The Nintendo Wii 2 or project cafe is expected to be announced this E3.
unfortunately due to the economy as it is, I am certain all major console development has been put on hold due to economic concerns. Mircosoft has been putting out the creation of a new console for this exact reason. With such additions as Kinect and the removal of DRM giving back 1 gig of space to the dvd disk for xbox 360 games. Microsoft is hedging its bets and trying to extend the consoles life cycle. A new Microsoft product most likely will be in 2013-14 at the least.
Sony on the other hand may pull out of the console market. It depends on how effective the NGP is in comparison to the 3DS. Will all that has happened to Sony in resent months it is difficult to see them turning a profit at all this year. In any case Sony will move very slowly as the string of bad business decisions from the PSP to the PS3 has hurt them significantly.
Some articles believe that the era of the consoles is coming to its close in the next ten years. Whether this is true or not we do know the future of the singular aspects of gaming.
Graphic processes has reached its zenith, further gains are difficult to say the least with little hope of major returns.
Memory- is increasing dramatically both of the games and storage devices. It is expected to increase even further with Blu-ray with its massive size taking over the console market.
RAM- As ram increases for both the graphics and systems more can be accomplished. From the near eradication of sprites from modern gaming to massive muliplayer experiences much like MAG has done.
Internet Speed- In the US the internet is starting to reach critical levels as more bandwidth is taken up. A revision of the entire network will most likely need to occur and soon otherwise rates will increase.

This argument is far older than MW2 or Blackops, it dates back to when Call of Duty was first produced for the console market. People have just simply forgotten the roots of the argument.
In 2005 two games were released for the consoles, Call of Duty 2 by Infinity Ward, and Call of Duty: Big Red One by a few different developers but mainly Treyarch.
Call of Duty 2 was an incredible game while Big Red One was poorly designed/implemented. While playable it was definitely sub-par. This would begin the history of badly designed Call of Duty games by Treyarch. The worst Call of Duty ever made was Call of Duty 3 by Treyarch. Alot of people got angry at them for the full priced worthless games.
So the real reason why people argue about MW2 or Blackops is really an extension of people not forgiving Treyarch, I am certain this has taken a new life of its own but that should sum up the reason why people argue between the two. (One side point is the MW2 is the last CoD by the leads of Infinity Ward)
The technology in the DSi is far older than the technology in the 3DS.
In the middle of the page of this link you will find the technical specs of the DSi and 3DS, you will notice the capabilities of the 3DS far exceeds the DSi. I also own a 3DS and the games are far graphically superior to what the DS could ever achieve.
Technologically speaking, the the 3DS has more power than the PSP.
