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 do typing exclusively on my Tablet, so expect errors in my posts. At least until I get my new Laptop.

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.
The writing was on the wall with Bioware the minute you could completely void all of your decisions with one choice in KOTOR.

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