Explain these things to me, readers:
-Does the PSP really need new software? It seems to be selling well enough.
-Is the Wii the new lead platform for music games? Check out "Guitar Hero"'s performance.
-Will "Medal of Honor" ever compete with "Call of Duty" again?
-Is Miyamoto going to get the last laugh about "Wii Music"?
