oh, definitely, I don't doubt that at all, I just think it's going to be a year where more time is spent working on things with future benefit (like said internal changes) than things visible on the outside.
I'm also quietly hoping c-chip gets properly cracked, there are still bubbles of activity with it, and we know in theory we can extract the rom with hardware methods (as we managed to get half of it already, with the missing data possibly just being down to a dodgy socket) it's just a shame the chip clearly locks out software attacks as when I worked on that I thought we'd get the data with ease. It's frustrating that it looks like we're going to have to go with a destructive, expensive and risky method on games that aren't exactly cheap to begin with.
