128 GB of Vram, that is a little overboard don't ye think ;)
Nah, it seems like that's the trend for requirements lately. Have you seen the minimum requirements for the next Dragon Age?

"According to the minimum specs, PC gamers will need a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, an AMD quad-core CPU @ 2.5 GHz or an Intel quad-core CPU @ 2.0 GHz, 4 GB of RAM, an AMD Radeon HD 4870 GPU or a Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT GPU, 512 GB of VRAM, and 26 GB of hard drive space. DirectX 10 also needs to be installed."

A simple mistake on the part of the commentators. The GB does not stand for Giga Byte but for Graphics Byte. Which is a very different byte then the usual one.

I was looking to buy thie PSTV but i do now have any PS products. IS it still possible to use as a mini gaming console? I am normally a PC guy but am interested in something cheap for the living room.

@airborn824 For some reasons I can't quote you, but whatever.

If you're looking for something cheap for the living room, a Wii U. Depends on what you're looking for, Nintendo consoles are obviously not multimedia machines, and they shouldn't be, but if what you're looking for is a cheap gaming device, the Wii U is amazing. Plus the Internet Browser is very good on it, thanks to the GamePad, and it still has Netflix, and stuff like that.

I game PC and Wii U, and I think it's pretty much the best combo.

I'm sure it is a misprint. It is probably 128 MB of Vram. I know the dragon age quote is a mis print- there official website list minimum requirments of 512 MB of VRAM and 2 GB VRAM for recommended. The new GTX 980 only has 4 GB of VRAM. There isn't a video card you can buy with 512 GB of VRAM
