You know, think it was a month ago I actually thought of this.. just keep forgetting to POST about it.
Think about the old days, rpgs, NES, Sega and SNES. Remember you had this great rpg.. however the hardware itself would one day fail you. Why? Since those older games, used a cell battery to store the save files. Buck Rodgers was one of these for example.
Its amazing when you look around today and see cartridge games still, however without batteries. Thank god for flash memories ^_^v
Just a interesting thought.. if you rem that era where cartridges could go bad due to the battery.
