    Arcana Heart being released anywhere is a bad thing, these animu combo bullshit fighting games need to die.

    Yeah, it has some really good/well-known games and nobody's buying. That's why I think it's fucked: if Uncharted, Wipeout and LittleBigPlanet can't move systems, what will?

    Price reduction, enough inbuilt memory negating the need for stupidly expensive memory cards and a non-proprietary medium for game distribution would probably just about do it.

    I love the Vita but fuck me did they fail to learn from some of their past mistakes.

    Exactly. Guess they really didn't want people hacking this.

    If the fighting engine is solid I don't care if it has Animu bitches or rugged old men.

    i agree, to an extent, i'm slightly hypocritical when it comes to shmups where you fly around as a schoolgirl or whatever the mechanics and engine being good help but, just meh...

    The fighting is the main problem, but the anime doesn't help...it's all a load of hyperactive combo bullshit for ADHD people. Blazblue, Arcana Heart, Melty Blood...all the same crap.

    Blazblue is slow as shit. Characters hardly move... Only one I don't like out of all the ones you've mentioned.

    People mention OUYA but OUYA is no competitor for the big consoles is just an alternative console. I got mine yesterday and it need a time to run.

    I'm curious to see what kind of hardware they use. It's pretty much assumed at this point that it'll be x86-based like the PS4, but the manufacturer and specs are unknown. My guess is that it'll use an Intel CPU and an NVIDIA GPU. But we shall see.

    Well, I understand it'll have some kind of BC with the 360 so I think it'll have an ATI chipset.
    But that's just based on the endless bullshit rumors.

    It is almost certainly an AMD APU that is likely very similar to the PS4.

    Backwards compatibility would be a huge plus and advantage over ps4. The xbox 1 compatibility in the 360 was a great feature.

    I thought the 360 BC was awful and didn't even support a shitload of games.

    The 360 BC great feature was allowing auto aspect ratio correction at HD resolutions. PS3 was slightly less convenient with its having to select image size.

    Wii simply failed at this. No system level option to display 4:3 content in black bars, despite games like Super Smash Bros Brawl showing it was doable.
