When will they release mini cons that look like beer kegs, or at least a mug of some sort that shoots missles... That is what I wish for the most *le sigh* one can dream.

Point of reference for those who don't know/remember what beta/betamax was.

It was as innovative then as blu-ray is now

it was an awesome and very ahead of its time machine. i wish they hadn't scrapped that!

p.s. my parents knew people that owned that, and they swore the quality was many times better than vhs.

I've heard from several people that Beta Max was far superior to VHS, but suffered from poor marketing and availability. Just goes to show you... something.

I would have to agree with that, much like the Laserdisc > DVD argument..which I also would have to agree with.
