Well it looks like the console wars are about to heat up again. Microsoft and Sony will be going head to head with there new consoles which will be released on November 30th (Xbox 1) and December 31st (PS4) respectively.
So what is the big deal with the two, well the main thing is how you can share games between the two systems. On one end, Sony and the PS4 will allow you to share games with your friends with the physical disc and you can even play used games from your PS3, PS Vita and PlayStation Network without any disruptions what so ever. Microsoft on the other hand has you locked with a DRM system in which you buy the game and have it digitally stored on the hard drive so if you want to play games with your friends, you will need to take the Xbox 1 with you and have the Kinect connected in order to play. A major inconvenience in my opinion, I want to play my games anywhere I want without being bogged down carrying my system.
Thus what is the moral of the story, SONY wins and Microsoft bites the dust. I feel that Sony is doing the right thing by allowing you to play all your games from all of your PlayStation devices without any hassle, and Microsoft, well I just don’t know what to say.
I won’t dive into this any further since all the major news outlets have pretty much covered the basics, but come this holiday season, I predict that Sony will be the big winner with the PS4. HANDS DOWN. So until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime and manga out there. All you have to do is find it. Ltrs.
Well it has been eight years since the Xbox 360 was released here in the U.S. Now the next generation of the Xbox Gaming Console will be coming later on this year. So the question is, should you trade in your old 360 for the 720 or just save your money and get a PS4? Well here is the skinny of what is to come (supposedly) with the new Xbox.
1) Graphics– The new Xbox is going to have less graphics power than the PS4 in which might not be a good thing for hard core gamers. The CPU will have a 1.6 Ghz processing speed in which will be the same as the PS4 but the 8gb’s of memory may be a tough sell for hard core gamers.
2) Blu-Ray: There are also rumors that the new Xbox will contain a Blu-Ray drive but it may not include one at all. Now keep in mind that when the 360 was released back in 2005, they adopted the HD-DVD standard and you all how how well that turned out. So including a Blu-Ray drive might be a smart move for Microsoft to do to compete with Sony which had Blu-Ray in the PS3 from the get go.
And now the downer that might just turn people away,
3) No Support For Used Games: Now this rumor has been going on since the rumors of the 720 have been going around. For those of you who don’t know, if you decide to go sell your used games at your local GameStop for new games, you will not be able to play them with the new system. I feel that this is going to be the hardest sell for those who want to upgrade but they don’t want to shell out 50 to 60 bucks for new games in which might just make the loyal Xbox faithful switch over to the PS4 and hurt the used game industry as a whole.
Now keep in mind that I only covered a few pieces of information about the new Xbox, but these are mostly rumors so these things may or may not appear in the final product when it is released for the 2013 holiday shopping season. So stay with AFC for more info on the Xbox 720 as it develops. So until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime and manga out there. All you have to do is find it. Ltrs.

It is time now for another edition of Anime Remix Japanese Culture Edition. Now, your probably wondering who this lovely little lady above the video is. Well for those of you who don’t know, this is Nanami Madobe the Japanese mascot for Windows 7 (AKA:WINNDOWS SVN!!!!). Sorry to make fun of her, it just fun to say it that way.
But getting back to business, the following video features Nanami working as a computer store clerk showing viewers how to build there own pc’s with Windows 7 (WINNNDOWS 7: come on, you have to admit that is funny!!!!!). But just a word of caution, she does go a little fast during the assembly part, but she slows down during the features segment. But overall this is a very interesting video and I hope you guys enjoy it. Take care and I will talk to you guys again soon. Ltrs.
And one other thing:WINNDOWS 7!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!!!!!
