The big reason why is the architecture shift.  Both the 360 and PS3 work on RISC-based processors, while the PS4 and Xbox One both use CISC-based X86 processors, much like those in modern PCs.

Here's a good analogy:  Imagine that you drive a diesel Jetta.  Eight years later, it's time for a new car, so you buy the new Jetta - but they only have Unleaded Jettas now.  It's the same brand and the same model, but it runs on a different fuel, so you're not going to be able to use your old diesel with it.

I go to ONE E3 party for TWO HOURS and you guys do this?!  That's it, RPGFan's done.  We're packing it up.

Peace out.

I'm excited for E3.  Even though I'm beginning to think I've been to one too many.

There's no party in the barracks for me as Marth killed Donnel with a double attack.

You've got to be lying, simply because Donnel is invincible.

We actually didn't change any of the setup - just did a backup.  I can see your avatar just fine.
36  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: bought ar tonelico 3 from gamefly used for 20$ and they sent me this on: May 31, 2013, 06:52:09 PM
im just amazed at the quality for a 20$ used game it is basically brand new

Gamefly is great for used games - since the only send the discs to subscribers, the boxes just sit until you buy it.

The boards will be down TONIGHT for about an hour while I do some backing up of the current data.  Expect around 8PM Central time.

Thanks for the patience!

Licensing fee.  Used to see price differential all the time before.  Then companies got smart and figured they could just make their games more expensive on PC and pocket the pure profit.

It think you mean PS3 :p

Anyway, new tour video is up on OH MY FUCKING GOD ODIN~!

No, I mean when the average PC game went from $10 less than the console versions to the same dollar amount, not the up-shift from $50 to $60.  Instead of seeing a $50 equivalent on PC, we got the same $60 even though there's no licensing fee.

We need to do a backup of our boards database, so you may see some intermittent outages on the boards.

Thanks.

Fun with Youtube statistics:
One of my P3 vid is on a korean wiki (wth?)
One of my Youtube vid was on a VGchartz article.
One vid I posted here got me 48 views from this forum. (thx ♥)
The Ys Origin trailer I put got tons of view from a torrent site at some point (wasn't that one fan translated? Would make sense that way)

In order of overall views by countries: #1 USA, #2 Japan, #3 Germany (wut?)

There's all kinds of fun to be had when parsing Youtube data.

We do that with our Google Analytics data.  There's some interesting stuff there.  RPGs seem to have a big pull in Germany - they're our #4 country after USA, Canada, and UK.  Japan's not even in the top 10 for us.

Also, we're very proud that most RPGFan visitors are on, you know, modern browsers.  Only 9% of our visitors use IE, with Chrome coming in at 37%, Firefox at 30%, and Safari (including mobile) at 12%.

Anyone here have the Nexus 10 tablet?

Happy with it?

I don't have a 10, but I have a 7 and I love it.  It's just smooth, clean Android.

Wow.  That's only the second PSP game I'm aware of that's gotten a patch (DJ Max 3 being the first).  If only the PSP actually prompted the user that such patches existed.  I'm putting the over/under on the people who download it at 500.

Well, this is (IMO) a great game that got nigh universal backlash for the lazy localization work, and rumor is they want to localize II, III, and even Gothic, so I can't blame them for wanting to fix the damage. Good for them.


Oh, I'm not arguing at all that it's a bad move - I'm glad they're doing it.  I'm more complaining about the fact that the PSP has a piss-poor way of patching games.  No notifications, you have to actually know there is an update for your game and go and select to update it.
