Though you could always play the Snes version in English.
I've heard, and I'm hoping Nintendo will publish it.

@Shorty0061 - Superb game. 4 player coop was always so much fun on the Gamecube. I actually own 3 versions of it.

To justify my decision am I correct in thinking that the PS3 kind of works out a fairly top end Bluray player due to firmware updates so it will support 3D and future Bluray enhancements?
Yeah, ps3 is one of the best bluray players around. It can also do 3D with the new firmware. The only thing it cant do is play TrueHD sound while playing a film in 3D. But it does TrueHD normally. This will only be a problem if you dont have a receiver that can do TrueHD. If you're running sound from your tv speakers then you'll never notice a thing. And the bluetooth remote for it is brilliant.

^ The Alister Sim version of A Christmas Carol will always be my favourite.

Except for how pressing ANY button on the remote turns the PS3 on! It is so annoying to accidentally turn it on, and then you have to press and hold the PS button or the power button on the console to turn it off... No idea why they didn't just have an On/Off button like the 360 remote.

Keep the remote in an area you wont accidently press unless you need to actually use it. I mean if you're bumping into it without wanting to then its probably not in the best place to begin with.

You two have issues if you keep turning your ps3 on by accident with it. I've owned this thing for like 3 years and never done that.

They probably have their remotes in the couch, and it keeps getting under their arse all the time.
