I'm rather curious as to whether anyone else has hit this problem. I finally got a PS2, bought a couple of games and then went searching for a memory card. After 4 walmarts, 1 target, 1 kmart, 2 used games stores, 1 best buy, 1 circuit city, and finally 2 gamestop I found that there where exactly 3 memory cards available, none PS brand. From what I could tell PS brands are no longer available for the forseeable future and due to the shortage, as soon as the last "generics" are sold there won't be any of those for awhile. Anyone else had that problem, the lack of parts and pieces for their game system? Even looking at XBox and Gamecube, the only place to actually buy them is Walmart...nobody else carries them for more than a day and very few carry any accessories for them. I guess this sortof ended up as sort of a rant...oh well, it's my post so I'm allowed to rant a bit.
