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.
