Don't think that has much to do with it since I haven't updated my graphics or sound card either since first getting this laptop. Not even the battery which pretty much has a five minute life span without the charger now.
Pokemon X/Y and Rune Factory 4 are the two games I would really want that is coming out but I don't have the money for the latter. My sister will though so maybe she'll buy it. But she's also considering buying the Y I preordered (because face it I'm a really nice sister and would have let her have it to play anyways if I bought it myself) so don't know.
