80/80 Phew could barely fit this. Yes another one of these topics.

I would pick probably the 8GB of GDDR3 RAM with full backwards compatibility. I would think that would be a fair trade off.

Also this is more of a question.

Since the Xbox has a more PC oriented structure than the PS3 had, does that mean it has a greater chance of being backward compatible?

I can see how the PS4 isn't since the infrastructure inside is more PC oriented than the PS3 was.

I only care about one thing:

Does it play god damn video games?

that ram isn't significant enough to matter, especially against BC
preferably BC that actually makes the games run a bit better at least too

No B/C, because that would require being locked on the much less powerful PowerPC architecture, putting it down with the Wii U and having the PS4 as the most powerful and easiest system to develop for.

BC matters the most to me. Whatever the difference ends up being between PS4 and 720, I know you'll have to look very hard to notice it. BC on the other hand is a pretty huge feature to me.

Shut up about the f***ing RAM already, none of it means a god damned thing if the developers are idiots as usual.
