Regarding PS3 and Revolution
With the announcement that the Nintendo Revolution will have Sega Genesis, Turbo-Grafx 16, NES, SNES, and N64 games, the new question for me (and I suspect for others) has now shifted from "Can I afford a PlayStation 3 and a Revolution?" to "PlayStation who?"

One last thing: If this gives me legal access to Akumajo Dracula X: Chi no Rondo, the only important Castlevania that I've not yet played, I'm going to be in line on Revolution launch day.

Sounds like the Revolution represents a giant leap... backwards.

In other news, Nintendo's next console is a modded Xbox.

Another new console, another new opportunity for me to re-purchase all my favourite Sonic games!

I really like this whole legal roms thing. As long as they don't make them too expensive because I don't need to pay another £20 for a sonic compilation that doesn't come with a box of manual to go alongside my copies of Sonic Mega Collection Plus and Sonic Jam, which do come with boxes and manuals.

But I am somewhat cynical about the prospect of being able to get legal copies of really rare games that were nearly impossible to get hold of before, like Draccy X. I think it's much more likely we'll just see stuff that's be rereleased before again, at least at first.

Yeah, look at the turds that Ninty floated around the Gamecube ereader/GBA bowl. $20 copies of Excitebike. Yay.

My $20 copy of Excitebike came with a free copy of Animal Crossing. Seemed like a fair trade.
