Well actually 3 is a fair average, but depending how intense the disc will get used it can go lower, and if used a lot less a bit higher. Depends mostly on cd spin time, secondarily on how hard up the CPU is used to do (so like 2D runs longer than 3D.) I'd guess the 3D GTA game coming around summer from what I know (brother works at rockstar) I'd guess a 2 hour play time as it'll stream audio, then do the bigass loads per sector like on PS2/PC. But then there are games like possible 2D puzzles that fully buffer to ram and never use the CPU barely at all and never the disc, probably get a good 5hours or so from it. Average time though is around 3 1/2 hours.

Sounds like a nice deal.
When I got mine, it still was a decent deal considering it kinda compares to the freebies of old. Extra stylus, batteries included (lith-ion), got the Metroid Prime Hunters minigames (3 on there that are timed so it's kinda like a highscore arcade days of old run up), the strap for your wrist, and on the strap that 'nub' you can use on the panel.
