  1. Are they far off already? Putting Mojang/Minecraft to one side as they are doing their own thing that leaves around 14 teams (I'm counting Obsidian, inXile and Playground as having two teams, everyone else as one). The two racing teams are producing a Forza every year. Is a three year cycle for games from each of the other teams an unrealistic target? That'd put them on 5 in house titles every year plus whatever titles they publish.

    The longer they wait the better their chances of moving completely to digital distribution. They don't need to rush out a console to stay ahead of Microsoft so I can't see them releasing something next year.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - December 7th

    I was misremembering this Kotaku article. https://kotaku.com/sources-the-ambitious-now-cancelled-plans-for-disney-1776370484 It generated a lot of revenue, not necessarily profit like I thought, but got sunk by overspending on the toy side of things.

    DLSS? As in that proprietary tech Nvidia showcased at the launch of the 2080? And using HDMI for connecting a VR headset instead of USB-C which will be the standard connection going forward? Get in the bin lads. Get in the fucking bin. Dumb speculation videos are fun but you have to cross your ts and dot your is.
  5. With all these studio purchases and openings, possibly more to come, Microsoft have gone from 5 or 6 internal teams to 15-20 teams in the space of twelve months. Depending on how many third party titles they continue to publish it looks like they could be planning to publish at least 6, possibly 10 or more, medium to big games every year. How many Gamepass/Xcloud subscribers do you think they need to hit in order to justify that level of investment?
  6. It's better than it was but it still needs a lot of work. There seems to be no way to filter things properly so it's hard to find all the Play Anywhere games for instance. That seems like a category they should be promoting harder because it's something unique to MS and also as a way of getting more developers to support that initiative. Same way with crossplay titles. Spencer did acknowledge that the Windows 10 Store needs serious work during his interview last night. Maybe we were meant to see those improvements last night but then the 1809 debacle upset their plans.
  7. People's hatred of the Windows 10 store really is something to behold. I made the mistake of reading the PC Gamer story and comments about this news and it's chock full of absolute loopers. People seemingly seriously suggesting it'd be better if the studios went bust instead of being purchased by Microsoft. Daft buggers.

    Razer said they'll be announcing hardware at CES which is in early January.

    I hope the Father Ted house is in that Forza expansion. I don't know why my mind went there but that was my first thought.

    World premiere of a rat monster statue. Who thought that was a good idea?

    So is the relative lack of news leaking about X018 a sign that MS are running a tighter ship these days or is it down to a lack of news worth leaking? As far as I know the current expected announcements seem to be the following: -Sunset Overdrive PC, possibly upgraded to a Play Anywhere title -Age of Empires and Rise of Nations being added to game pass for PC and Xbox -Buying Obsidian -Halo PC ports -A bunch of additions to Gamepass Random longshots: -Buying Insomniac -Buying Turtle Rock and showing off their new game -Buying Splash Damage. I'm just throwing that out there based on the fact their only current project seems to be Gears Tactics. I fully expect to be corrected on that. Obviously we are going to see Crackdown 3 and updates to Forza, Sea of Thieves etc. but are people expecting some big announcement tomorrow? It feels like there has to be something big in order to justify hosting a special event but I have no real idea what the big reveal could be.

    How many times in the last twenty or so years could you ask a similar question about Disney using their characters in any number of genres? How many times have they then gone and made that game? They just don't seem to be all that interested in console game development. Infinity was turning a profit but they still killed it off.
  13. It bums me out that garbage like that godawful Dungeon Keeper reboot has managed to do such a thorough job of salting the earth that people don't seem excited by the idea of a Diablo game on their phone. The most positive reactions in this thread are "well it sounds ok but I'll wait until I see how bad the microtransactions are". That sucks. At least all the outrage is mildly amusing to watch unfold.

    Depending on how they structure things it could generate that sort of money by boosting their commercial revenue in addition to their share of the broadcast rights. If they ever did go for a full on European superleague then it's pretty much a given that teams would give up some of their home matches in order to play matches in front of their international fans. The English teams, and possibly Celtic, would probably all want a match in Dublin, Man Utd and Liverpool would want matches in Thailand, Man City and PSG in the UAE and Qatar etc.
  15. A lot of people complained about headaches after using it for ten minutes or less. If using an entertainment device as intended for that short a period can cause people pain and discomfort then I'd categorise it as shit.
