On a different note, the new Super Mario Bros. is just incredibly fun. Nintendo certainly knows how to make addicting and fun platform games.
Also, I'm friggen' _ecstatic_ that the DS also plays GBA games. Considering that there are fewer than three _good_ RPGs on the DS Lite, it's nice to know that I can stock up my RPG library with GBA games and simply play them on the DS.
It all makes me wish the 360 was backwards compatible. Now, I can understand the technical limitations that make it the way it is, but it would be nice to be able to play some of my XBox games on the 360 (and most of the ones I want to play, aren't on the backwards
compat list yet). As a consumer, I desperately want backwards compatability. It gives me choice, it allows me to have a larger library of games to choose from while the console is still "getting up to speed" with its own dedicated library.
I would say (and used to say) that Microsoft would regret the decision, but considering that they just hit, what, 6 million units?, I don't think they're regretting the decision. Even now, I could honestly care less because I have a bunch of games that I can
play on the 360 that I love. Truth be told, I don't even have my original XBox hooked up anymore.
Still, my one fear with the next XBox is that they are going to throw away backwards compatibility (which could definitely be the case if they are developing their own custom CPU for it). Then again, by the time it comes around, perhaps I won't care.
Great! I just hi-jacked my own thread. Darn.
