Antialiasing is not that important IMHO, particularly on a television
screen (which is really blurry anyway, so much for the "sharp edges"!)
and on high resolution monitors (like 1024x768 and up, the pixels are so
small that it is barely visible).

I don't know for the amount of video memory, but I think the PS2 were
recalled because of a bug in the DVD player that allowed playing back
DVDs from other countries (which is not supposed to happen, for some
stupid reason). Check your sources!
