    Since yesterday I have been looking for a PS2 memory card, I went to every store near by (more than 6 stores!) and all the online shopping sites that I know of, NONE of them have PS2 memory card (8M) in stock! And I was told it has been out of stock since Janurary!

    Anyone knows what happened!?

    Can't start my quest of Fatal Frame without saving, uhhhhh!

    Yeah, I've seen Sony memory cards sold out online. However, I've been able to find them at CompUSA and BestBuy with regularity in the Bay Area.

    nan! Hopefully you will be able to find one before this friday/weekend - just in time for jeff and shang's arrival. Everyone is starting with a fresh profile just for the 2-day gathering, so we can find out who the supreme rapist is at the end. Hopefully you can make it Friday and saturday!

    Hi Adam! Ok I will try my best! Already made a special order at my local Circuit City, but who knows how long it's going to take? Asked a employee in the Funcoland here, he said they probably won't have it until APRIL (whaaaaat!). Can't figure out what's going on with Sony. PS2 is no longer a new product, but its accessory is still sold out so badly... something is wrong.

    On the other hand it's probably part because of my luck of video gaming anyways:) I remember I had difficulty finding a VMU for my Dreamcast on the first day I bought it too.

    Is Shang coming down again this weekend? It might be fun to watch both your Akira going head to head:) Last Saturday in Philly was the first time I saw QCB+P ~ Max Body Check live ( had onlly seen it in movies before). Now I realize why some people complain about Akira being a pig:)

    Oh by the way, will you accept players without their own memory cards?
    Memory card ~~~ memory card ~~~~~ where are you?

    Sony announced awhile ago they were having manufacturing difficulties on the memory cards which would lead to a shortage. Your best bet, if you want to find one ASAP, would probably be to check around smaller stores or online sites, or maybe order a Japanese one.

    Im afraid i wont be much of a match for shang-ster. I have only played vf4 a handful of times seriously. On the ps2 i've played 2 or 3 times seriously for a short time during each session. I still rely on vf3tb stuff and am not completely comfortable with the system yet. So i am hoping to get raped and learn stuff in the process! Do you want me to pick up a memory card for you? There are a lot in Long Island (the Wal-mart by the hotel has some). I will be coming down to my new place (yay!) on thursday morning though - so that is the earliest i can see you and give you your memory card. Let me know.

    Of course niggaz without memory cards can attend! Hehehe...if you want i'll create a profile for you on my card!

    Yeah, I've seen plenty of mem cards in my local Walmarts and Best Buys. Try calling your local department stores that sell PS2. What about Toys-R-Us?

    Adam, what day are you guys planning on meeting? I'm trying to get free from work on Mar 23-24 to maybe go down to the Philly tourney that weekend, but a NYC gathering would be cool too... especially since I missed all the action when you guys were into VF3...

    hiya Yupa! Jeff gonna be here from thursday to sunday. But i think everyone will be meeting Friday and Saturday evening to play. Yeah, as soon as i get settled into my new place, that is gonna be the place for our weekly gatherings - just like vf3tb days. You are welcome to drop by anytime - it gets pretty intense and competitive! But please try to drop in sometime this week and join shang, rodney (omaha Jeff), Nelson (ghettoSHUN), Andy, Nan, Sal (piccolo), Jeff (ice-9), Erik (E-dog), Charles, and me! Methinks we might need 2 setups though...hmmmmm.

    If I come down, I should be able to bring a 13" monitor, PS2 and joysticks. That's not a problem. I'm definately working this Sat night Mar 16, but I may be able to come down the following week Mar 23. Are any of you interested in going to the Philly tournament on Mar 24?

    Crap, I have the fever play but I don't think I will be out of work in time to head out with Shang. (I'm pretty sure he wants to head out early from Boston) Doh!

    Adam it was pretty funny when you called me on my cell phone. I take it Andy didnt give you my name and so you asked for "Jerky". At first I was like "uh...is this some kind of prank call?" but then I knew who you were. (well on the board i mean)

    It would be better if we can have two settings for VF4 when we have so many people! But so far the only thing I can contribute is a stick -- an ASCII FT2.

    Thanks for the suggestion about memory cards -- seems like there are plenty in NYC but none in where I live!? Not fair/versus/images/icons/mad.gif.
