Assuming this is true, I'm more interested in picking this up vs any of the alternatives, as I am using a Nano 1G until I decide. Was waiting for PSXGroovy +Plus with microSD, however I'm starting to wonder if it will ever come out, or what the support will be like (as they sent out review units weeks ago apparently but I have yet to see any reviews).
