  1. Basically this, the first lot were made primarily in China and weren't done right so are rightly called carp quality. Then somebody in management realised they were shitting on their own shoes and hired M2 to do them in Japan, these releases are highly regarded and feature the usual M2 attention to detail.

    Star Citizen - Fishing for Space Whales

    You just all need to find an underserved genre with a fanbase with apparently near limitless amounts of both patience and money. A fantasy game of some sort would probably give decent ROI, but that genre isn't that underserved though by commercial providers.

    Microsoft’s xCloud Game Streaming Service

    At least 400 Million people do, unless you think something as hardcore as PUBG isn't a fullfat console game by design? 2 Billion total people interested in playing 'games' according to guestimates, knock off whatever portion you think only want to play Facebook and match-3 and clickers, what's left is your potential audience for a fullfat experience, but not convinced enough to buy an expensive PC or console to play those games on. Would still be a pretty lucrative opportunity imo. The big third parties think so too, they aren't putting their money into it for ideological reasons or wanting to become the biggest landlord.

    Star Citizen - Fishing for Space Whales

    There must be plenty of fish left in the sea, this is now at over $195 Million raised. https://www.pcgamer.com/star-citizen-raises-more-than-dollar1-million-in-four-days-following-alpha-33-release/

    Rllmuk's Official Sales Figures

    Apparently you can add another scalp to the killed by Fortnite pile, weakest CoD launch at retail since 2007, and down nearly 50% from last year's iteration.

    Shenmue 1&2

    Shenmue in the Dragon Engine certainly would have been something interesting. Suppose the usual problem cropped up, even with this more limited remake. I wonder if anybody in the underground collector scene has either of these 2 items?, as they would fetch a good price to the right buyer.

    I believe the end-game plan is to have parity with the back catalogue of the Xbox One, so anything that can be run on that particular piece of hardware can be run on the xCloud variant, sticking point being the usual one, $$$$$$$$. Which is the same for Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Backwards Compatibility.

    Nintendo Switch

    Not all solid state is created equal though, NVMe or Enterprise solutions are fastest and most expensive, bog standard SSDs are pretty quick, eMMC and SD cards and cheap junk USB memory sticks come in last in the pecking order. It's the same confusion people have when they hear the term 'cartridge' and assume they will have zero loading times like in the ancient past.

    PlayStation 5

    Supposedly the entirely software emulator that powers the PS2 classics on the PS3 has a ~70% compatibility rate, though compatible and perfect are not the same thing. You'd need a hacked PS3 to confirm that though.

    How else are you going to run a fullfat console game on most devices owned by the global gaming population? Fortnite mobile has the same cutbacks as PUBG mobile, you aren't playing Red Dead Redemption 2 on those devices, or Assassin's Creed Odyssey either, no matter how much you cut from them. PUBG has 400+ Million players BTW, the power of Tencent and China at work.

    Exactly, Microsoft want a piece of every transaction basically. The reason they got into console gaming in the first place was because the Dreamcast failed and Sony weren't interested in partnering with them (Nintendo also turned them down).

    James Gunn fired for old paedo jokes

    Yeah, as I said it was watchably mediocre but the character and powers they had were fairly interesting so that is why I wouldn't have minded watching a sequel. I've avoided most of the recent Marvel comic book films so the assumption that the DC stuff was even worse has made it quite easy to not bother watching any of them either. Guardians of the Galaxy was surprisingly good, while the sequel wasn't quite as good, but James Gunn makes interesting films generally so I'm more interested in seeing a DC film if they are letting him have full creative control on this one now.
  13. I'm thinking of maybe getting a PS Vita and apparently somebody clever has created a memory adapter for it, much like the PSP one. Is there any specific good SD2Vita adapters that are recommended? as eBay is flooded with loads of them, some a bit too cheap to be believable.

    Of course it is a goal and probably as obtainable as winning the living room or making a commercially viable mobile OS, but they've publicly put that stake in the ground and have something to aim for. I would have retorted Phil Spencer's question by asking how many people actually want to play Halo or Red Dead Redemption or any console games fullstop?, but hey, if that is their line of thinking, it's their line of thinking and justification for pursuing the xCloud dream.

    The editor of Eurogamer put up an opinion piece about Google vs Microsoft for the future of gaming, he seems to recognise the same likely battleground developing as every single other streaming war. Once the tech is good enough, content becomes king, just like on the consoles now so we can all look forward to peak gaming, the production values at least will be glorious :) https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-10-11-google-and-xbox-just-started-the-next-platform-war
