thats probably the AV encoder.
now and then? Sure, they're very mainstream and not exclusive, but it gets loads of new singstar/guitar hero/buzz games all the time here in Europe... that and the famous franchises such as FIFA and movie-based games.Why wouldn't it? Games are still coming out now and then for the system, and besides, it's not like I have even finished all of the games I want to play on the PS2. (yeah, I'm staring at Persona 4)
