I.Q. Mania (or: Please stop asking for an Intelligent Qube ISO)
Recently zakk pointed me to a Play-Asia deal for the Chinese version of I.Q. Mania for the PSP at the low-low price of $20, shipped. The I.Q. here is Intelligent Qube, as in the notoriously difficult to find PSOne game. This new I.Q. combines levels from the previous three (that's right, I said three) games: the original I.Q., I.Q. Final which was only released in Japan, and the also-Japan-only I.Q. Remix+ for the PlayStation 2.

The Asian version of I.Q. Mania is perfectly playable by someone who only speaks English, and except for the difference in button usage, is easy to pick up and play.

The price had jumped back up to $40 and is currently back down below $20, but even at the higher price it is still far below the going price for a complete copy of Intelligent Qube for the PSOne. The PSP game has everything you'd want from the original, and more, as long as you own a PSP. It even has a few demos for other PSP games, most of which we won't ever see over here.

So, all of you I.Q. fans with PSPs: stop asking me for an ISO of my copy of Intelligent Qube. And the first one to ask for a rip of my I.Q. Mania gets a knuckle sandwich.

Good news for the future, certainly, but if you're not PSP'd, $200 >> $30 for a used PS1 system.
