Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Services like forget it. Not, even the same conversation. It's why they won't allow xbox of do gain pass on lesson in streaming unless they go through the hoops of. Having every game speed submitted by so they can get their cut because you know it's a place where they are not. They are not strong Yeah. It's it's I duNno. If Apple Arcade was a success to begin with, you know I mean they had there was press a couple of months ago about how they were completely revamping their approach to games. They want games that were stickier and like one of the one of the Games that they use as an example was one of these like match three games that you know it wasn't. It wasn't a Bethesda game. It's. Different I like. I love that apple enabled compatibility with xbox and playstation game pads. That's great. But they'll never be a game platform like in the in the same sense because that's not there. That's not what they do best. But but now they're fighting dare subscription company. That's what the apple one bundle with multiple pricing points within apple one. There's multiple apple ones. That's who they are now as a company. So guess what xbox playstation are their subscription companies now too. So like I would say they're more of a competitor now to those places than they were a year or two ago, and to go back to early point in the social dilemma of what these companies they're trying to get your screen time. Same. Game Consoles. They might not be for advertisers. WHAT THEY WANNA. Do is when you have TV in your house and growing couch because that is something that people do in their living rooms on their couch dinner in, they want you to spend the time playing a game versus watching Netflix where forces browsing the web and that doesn't work when you're traveling in the of your phone. So what the Apple Arcadia competing against is for the time that people are. Using their phones and those games while they can be that's why the match three games work because they work on that same dopamine trigger that the the the the slot machines work on which is with the same triggers that the social media networks work on and that's what people are going to gravitate toward on those devices. It's it's all distribution. No good news this week. Hey one piece of good news John Karmic tweeted in response to Microsoft buying cinemax said.

But when he was doing, maybe it was a CS keynote but definitely a video recorded of him promoting windows ninety five one of the big things whether it Wednesday five was all the graphics and so they did this whole thing where he's like games like doom and they did like a mix reality thing where he's a cold the doom gun, he's blasting away at the it was like the big selling point of Windows Ninety Five, all your games were compatible to. Yeah, that's what it made. Me Think of with the Suckling Echo Vr, and of course now said Microsoft and but doing B. R. to come full circle it was what Johncock was.
