He's funny but he doesn't release videos very often. Same reason I didn't include VGCats.

Is it really necessary to save your money?

ApocalypseShadow1429d ago

Ask Sony if 110+ million and Nintendo's 50+ million console sales made BC necessary. Obviously not. If you give it to me, I'll take it. If not, BC wasn't what I was looking for on new hardware anyway.

It's a feature that's cool to have and is convenient in not needing multiple pieces of hardware hooked up. New hardware can make old games sometimes look better.

But it's not necessary when the reason we buy new consoles, is to play new games that take advantage of that new hardware. If new, quality games are coming in constantly, you'll find less an less time to play old games.

For the billionth time.

Definitely not necessary but from a marketing standpoint it's pretty clever. If someone had a console this gen and amassed a collection of games for it, they may be less likely to switch to a rival console if they can carry those games over to that console's next iteration , possibly with advantages like a higher resolution or higher frames etc.

Now you know, now you know true power. Bring on the x beast.

gangsta_red2410d ago

lol, i'm convinced but I still would like the set up to compliment these mid gen consoles.

Gazondaily2410d ago

Damn! That is a MASSIVE endorsement for the console right there

Man, reading that article, especially the last paragraph, bought tears to my eyes. So emotional. The powerful specs of the Beast has bought the author, a self admitted Xbox hater, to come home to Xbox! I suspect many like him will do the same this Holiday.

TankCrossing2409d ago

Totally. I puked all over my wife. I... don't handle emotion well.

Aren't PA the people who refuse to put the third part of their RPG onto PS3?

I thought PA was always Xbox first type of people.

#1 & #2 were 2 of my favorite RPGs last gen but #3 fell short due to changing the style of the gameplay. Rain Slick was a great series though.
