    So as many of you should guess, I go through a lot of news on a daily basis related to gaming and there's actually a lot of it I just don't post because yes, I'm a good person and don't post flamebait.

    ...But it's fun to look at the news anyway.

    So I'll just be posting news I find that is flamebait/subject to severe crying here so you guys can "peruse" it.

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-03-11-zynga-all-games-are-derived-from-other-games

    Reason: Subject to typical Zynga crying, will probably get related to everyone ripping off Nintendo by either: FireGrey, heartgold, DSGamer64, or jalaneme.

    https://www.gameinformer.com/b/news...per-touts-the-power-of-the-playstation-4.aspx

    Reason: "I’m glad Sony decided to go with 8GB RAM because it means that the PS4 will out-power most PC’s for years to come." is a quote. PC fat loser neckbeards "master race" will cry about it. Bladexsl will probably use the term "gfx whores" and people will complain about the PS4's nonexistent/unrevealed price.

    http://www.computerandvideogames.com/395264/xbox-will-beat-ps4-in-next-gen-race-analyst/

    Reason: Typical console wars cryfest.

    http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/03/05/report-vita-sales-in-japan-have-quadrupled

    Reason: Vita sales thread, will get shit on by defeatists and wanked on by optimists.

    More will come but I'll put them in posts, not in the main thread.

    That's actually outdated, figures put it about 60,000 sales. Second place in Japan, about 10,000 behind the 3DS.

    Also did pretty well in software with One Piece: Pirate Warriors and Senran Kagura: Child Porn Sim.

    Sorry, the chart I saw combined 3DS LL and 3DS sales. I mean they're the same thing anyway, one just compensates for the small penis size of Japan.

    Now if only we had a Vita LL. With a 10 in screen. I'd buy it.

    Only if they made the back comfy, preferably with a'la gamepad handles (they could hide battery cells in those), the PSVita's already quite big.

    Actually I'm quite fond of the Vita's size. I have an old carrying bag for a small set of iPod speakers and it fits the Vita perfectly. I use a miniDV case to carry around my carts so it has perfect room to through that in one of the pouches.

    Oh, it's great size-wise - I'm just saying that if they made it bigger, it'd have to be relatively "comfy" - I was referring to the imaginary 10". ;)

    Well go big or go home. I mean it may be big but wouldn't want fabulous Vita games on a 10in screen?

    I suppose, but I value comfort greatly so they'd have to make the shape "just right" rather than a standard a'la tablet with controls on the sides. I like me some long sittings with me PSVita, uh-huh.

    Wouldn't mind an HDMI-Out either - the devkit has it, so why the heck not? :P That or Remote Play that works both ways.

    Looks like they did a 180 on the 360.

    Even retail PC RAM would be just $24 more to go from 4GB of 8GB in a single stick, so the complaint isn't the cost but the reasoning as games are still not RAM-dependant and tend to be GPU-limited, a large amount of RAM indicates the possibility of lots of software running on top of the game, and people want their consoles to just game because other stuff is scary.

    Those are the news you should post Guild for a fiery debate.
    Can you post more please? I'm dying to hear something about Mass Effect 3 or anything about ME. Remember when Project Director of Mass Effect was asking people on Twitter on what they like to see on the next Mass Effect?
    That was the lamest news i've ever seen on my life.

    Keep in mind that this is shared memory - both system assets, graphics assets and actual game code are all in the same place and this alone greatly simplifies matters. This is also the reason why there's so much of it. The real treat though is that it's GDDR5 memory which is blazing fast.

    Discounting 2GB for VRAM (the 1080P assumption is obvious and high-resolution textures love VRAM), it's still a few gigs to spare for stuff on top.

    inb4 That's what she said.

    Today, but what about in 10 years time? Remember, this is a NextGen - it needs quite a lot of leeway in terms of specs.

    I'm still wholeheartedly behind the PS4. :creep:
