No drought about it.
Still can't fix stupid. And you apparently can't quarantine, it either.

As a PC gamer I always find these spec releases kind of funny. An SSD? Welcome to 2012.

Considering the prohibitive cost of SSDs back then, it shouldn't come as a surprise they were not used in the current gen of consoles, which were released in 2013. A seven-year lifespan usually results in the technology becoming pretty much obsolete within a few years, especially compared to gaming PCs which are customizable across the board (no pun intended). Consoles are relatively restricted by comparison. Although, upgrading to a SSD in a PS4 or Xbox One has been possible since their respective launches.

Fair. I'm pretty sure my 1 gig SSD was almost 700 bucks back then.

Exactly. Sticking with more "mainstream" tech helped keep costs down*. I toyed with the idea of upgrading my PS4 with one but it didn't make sense cost-wise and I just wound up going with a 2TB HDD instead.

I'm looking forward to SSD technology finally making its debut on consoles. It'll help a lot when one considers the sheer size of video games these days

* Sony really took it on the chin with the PS3 when they went with the highest end available Blu-ray drive back in 2006

Always good to see console specs catch up a bit. Near the end of every console generation you've got technology available for PC's that can outperform the hell out of them, but developers generally aren't going to make use of it if they can't do the same in their console versions.

Well, it's been five days since I fired up FFVII Remake and it's essentially everything I had hoped it to be. It's a masterpiece and if you played and enjoyed the original game, you'll love this reimagined version.
