    Xbox Game Pass (Subscription Service)

    Hard to say. If Xbox appeals to a more hardcore sort of gamer you may find the gold conversion ratio to be much higher than PS4. Similar to the average Wii user purchasing less games than the average Xbox console owner.

    Probably Waterstones for a period sold Kindles before realising that probably wasn't the best use of store space!

    If so, I still think it is silly.

    I agree. That sounds like complete retail suicide to me. Same as HMV actively selling subscriptions to Netflix and Spotify in store.

    Sony do have PS plus which is a kinda subscription service in that if you download the games each month you continue to have access to them as long as you subscribe. Wouldn't be surprised to see them retrofit that into a Game pass type system at some point.

    I'm not sure I really agree from a Nintendo perspective. People like us buy lots of Switch games, but more casual players might currently just have the big ones: BOTW, Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart and Splatoon. Over an 18 month period that is around £160 in revenue for Nintendo. A Nintendo Gamepass, even for £10 a month, would have derived £180 in the 18 month timeframe and would still be creating revenue going forwards. Chuck in Virtual Console games, up the price to £15 and you've made £270 in 18 months. I could well be wrong but for Nintendo where you release a few games per year but they get played a lot by your base of players then a subscription service seems like an idea worth exploring. Why sell Mario Kart 8 for £40 and have it played for years and years when you can lock people into a subscription service. It is telling that we are seeing subscription services crop up in so many different areas (Hello Fresh for food, Netflix, Beer subscriptions etc.) because once you lock someone in then the retention rate is much higher than trying to get them to buy your next product which probably involves a significant marketing spend in any event.

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018)

    Why do you think it'll fall short box office wise? It's on a fairly similar trajectory at the moment.
  9. Not really. Maybe with Sonic Mania since I have not really played it but liked the idea. Although I intend to properly play it, just haven't got around to it yet. Probably loads of us supporting devs if the only requirement is pay money for game you never play.

    Nintendo Switch

    I must admit to only skimming the article but it does look like it is not ideal. I thought Nintendo would be releasing some more options though.

    Probably not what you are looking for but we might be getting some third party joy cons with an actual d-pad. https://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2018/3/22/17152160/hori-nintendo-switch-joy-con-controller-directional-d-pad

    Star Trek - Jean-Luc Picard returns

    In fairness, it is difficult enough to keep things canon just with the live tv series. I am not sure it is healthy to start adding in stuff from other mediums.

    Star Trek - Jean-Luc Picard returns

    From memory, two slight references. At the start they are inviting the new race into the Federation and Picard mentions it is happening quickly and I think he mentions this is because the Federation is trying to rebuild. Later, the bag guy references conflicts with the Borg and the Dominion as evidence that people are seeing weakness in the Federation. So nothing major, but clearly the same timeline. Whilst Romulus should be destroyed in the new series, would anyone really mind if we just cart the Abrams movies off to their own little corner of continuity. Always seemed a shame to destroy Romulus and just have it as a bulletpoint in a movie when it should have been the focus of a story if you are going to do it. Nero was pissed off because Romulus had been destroyed but it literally could have been any other planet, including an entirely new one. It is not like Nero looks or acts like any Romulan seen before.

    Star Trek - Jean-Luc Picard returns

    Insurrection referenced the war. They don't really need to mention it unless they want though. After the war ended, its completely plausible that a few years later things are broadly back to status quo. Apparently this is set 20 years on from Nemesis anyway.

    Star Trek - Jean-Luc Picard returns

    And most irritatingly because Discovery would have fitted, with only minimal changes needed, a post TNG time line much better than it is currently fitting a pre TOS timeline. As it is it is trying to fill in an existing period which really didn't need filling in.
