It's like it feels so like it's getting close to superhero things.

They did a lot of clone wars. And i felt like fives rex. All these other clones. They had 'em like so good. And it's like why the bad batch. Yeah i i haven't had time to watch it myself. It was part of the concern. I had with star wars. Sorry Disney announcing something like a hundred billion shows a year or something like that. Thank you oh..

Preference vero of this artist's rendering of bat going down woman on a rooftop and said cannon and it was like so in his cannon continuity. Batman does do that and he has talked about it before were ben. Affleck's version of batman had used sex to kind of like numb the pain of his loss.

"Them to dive into. We knew that wasn't coming like this year but they've compensated for that with or one of the next yesterday. Looking real good. Starting next year we're going to be almost due for the initial teasers, a gear six. Yeah, I think we're definitely seeing some some form of avowed or well, actually that's crazy cuz now that the outer worlds to got announced they're working out of out in the back roads to and granted at the same time. And it's not to say that I'm sitting, might not have three separate Studios working on these three seven games. I don't think they do. I think they're all one studio in. I think it's Irvine. So that's a that's a lot of games for what I think is a smaller. Team will see, which comes out what comes out first. The outer worlds to our avowed About that. I hope it's a field alone. Yeah, I mean I guess it depends which teams are working a lot, but yeah. All right, let's wrap it up quick. We have three minutes. Let's score of the Chicago, guys. So out of town. What are you rating? The Xbox and Bethesda showcase. Not many players know. I'm going to go with a solid. What I give you something. I can 587 Sona Xbox, I think they deserve a nine because wow, it's genuine surprises like red pool, right? And like we have a lot to look forward to. And the important part is a lot of his free for me, because I have game pass through to twenty-three. So it's good stuff. I'm going to give him a 9 a.m., right? So, all the next day, only, I'll leave you for last. I gave Ubisoft and 8, and I'm going to I'm going to also give Xbox in Bethesda 9. I think they showed the right amount of the right things for trying to find. Absolutely blew me away like that came off. So and then to see, you know, the the new games announced and yeah, I'm just, I'm super impressed, even all right, if you would ask me that beginning of the show, I probably would have given it like an a mid 8, maybe a low 8, but as I was thinking and finally, like being able to wrap my head around it, the score kept going up and up, and up, and up, and I think I beat both of. You should get a 9.3. I thought they did a very good job, and they didn't do the typical Xbox thing where they like one, they didn't overhype this show too. They didn't do their job, they didn't? They just showed games like they didn't come out and do their their little speech. Like Todd Howard, Heinz. And and Phil Spencer maybe talked for they definitely talked combined less than the forts a guy and the fourth guy only talked long because job Explaining what the new stuff in the force was and that game looked absolutely gorgeous. And it was the perfect Deep dive game. I complained about it at first and then I realized how I was wrong. I'm stupid. Shut up, Steven it was good. So yeah, I thought it was a 9.3. Why no and, you know, I know we'll get accused me as far as Fanboys here, but Xbox really did a good job today. And in one thing they did really well at before we got here is they didn't lie on.

Lyons said the union is devastated by the loss of President Elizabeth Davis. She worked as a teacher for more than 40 years and served as president of the Union for eight years. She was 70 years old. That's all she did was eat, sleep and breathe the rights of the teachers and the rights of the students in the district. Maryland state police said that Davis was driving south bound on route 301 and the area of Harbor Way in Prince George's County when she struck a car sitting at a stoplight.

Microsoft Exploring $10B Acquisition of Gamer Chat App Discord
"I sources began to report late yesterday. That discord was exploring a sale of itself seeking evaluation of ten billion dollars or so then bloomberg reported that it was microsoft was in advanced stages of negotiations to maybe by discord for about that exact ten billion dollar target range but also that discord is maybe more likely to just go public and test the waters itself quoting bloomberg. Actually you'll note there tempering. Their initial reporting here a bit quote discord has been talking to potential buyers and software. Giant microsoft is in the running but no deal is imminent said the people who asked not to be identified because the discussions are private discord is more likely to go public than sell itself. One person said representatives for microsoft and discord declined to comment venturebeat reported earlier on monday. That discord was engaged in sales tax microsoft. Which last year sought to buy social media app tiktok and held talks to acquire. Pinterest has been shopping for assets that would provide access to thriving communities of users. According to people familiar with the company's thinking microsoft's xbox business has also been expanding the suite of subscription perks. It provides as part of its game pass offering microsoft shares. Were up about one point. Two percent in the first minutes of trading tuesday quote microsoft possibly acquiring discord makes a lot of sense as it continues to reshape. Its gaming business. More towards software and services said bloomberg intelligence analyst. Matthew kanter men. There's a big opportunity to bundle discord premium nitro into the game. Pass service to drive more. Subscriptions from last reported number of eighteen million and quote after microsoft's recent seven and a half billion dollar purchase of xeni. Max media owner of the elder scrolls and doom publisher bethesda software and acquisition of discord with signal the redmond washington-based software giants willingness to keep investing in its video game unit and quote. Yeah integrating discord deeply into xbox stuff does make a ton of sense. Although i think they could make an exclusive wall off discord as something that you can only get if you do x. box but also the larger narrative here is that microsoft keeps trying to acquire social networks. Tick tock pinterest. And i keep hearing that one of the motivations for that is to get them all on a juror is that they've invested so heavily to build out this cloud infrastructure that they need big projects to justify their existence. That was always what i heard about google getting into cloud gaming but can this be true. Can someone smarter than me. Explain the economics behind that theory but also discord apparently runs on top of google cloud. So i guess there is value in kicking one leg of the stool out from under your rival right. Maybe google cloud is so far behind and week that its rivals. Maybe think they can strangle it in the crib

"Yeah during the yeah that guy know so really good marketing help them out Xbox needs to make this stuff exclusive and it's not because yes, they'll lose some sales on this front. All right, because you won't have PlayStation fans buying it. However, if you get people to buy your Xbox and then when you're buying Game Pass, that's some money that they weren't going to earn in the first place because they didn't have an Xbox. They're buying third-party James Microsoft gets cut of that if they're buying it from their store and they're buying movies and TV which you cannot do on a PlayStation Microsoft getting a cut of that as well. Now, these are all the things off. You're making money on that you're not if you're putting that you don't get the benefit of besides the single one time cost of purchasing Elder Scrolls 6 when they put it on Playstation. Are you are you telling me that things are more deeper and nuanced than just well, of course, but and that's the reason that Microsoft shouldn't make so he told in fact haeden almost convinced me that they've also make their multiplayer games exclusive to Xbox because like he said if all your friends are getting it and you want to play with them. This was before cross-play was a thing. Of course, then you're going to buy the console that every all of your friends are getting cuz you want to play with them. So if elder or Fallout 76 is an XBox, exclusive or whatever if they do fall at 77, let's say home is an XBox exclusive and you know, you have a bunch of friends that want to play it. They'll all need Xbox. I don't think that would be wise. Oh because I think a lot one would kill player basis and you need a large player wage. Is to have a like MMO game work well and too, I convincing five people to buy a new console can be difficult. And so they'll just be like well, we're not going to play it. So I think the bath r e s o s in Fallout 76 s should stay multi-plant, but I do think they're single player Flagship titles should be exclusive to Xbox. turn How old are games that aren't developed by Bethesda published by them? Like what give you an example? Like what's even with them? Yeah, or I pray. I don't know about this game. So I've been over there were developed by Studios like within zenimax, but like yeah there there is not like developed by Bethesda. Yeah, but yeah, it's like a boss like yeah, I think they should have one hundred percent be exclusive pray was developed by Arcane who also made dishonoured and I said earlier Dishonored 3 needs to be yeah, exclusive and I think precious I think all their big AAA titles that zenimax owns should be exclusive. I think the smaller like off your death Loops style of game and I know obviously definitely already had I'm not talking about that's what I'm talking about games that are going to be like death Loop or Tokyo water or gas, whatever the the name of their those can maybe go multi-plant, but I think your big giant open world RPG is and dishonor then your big AAA likes to Thursday. Games like Dishonored 3 should be exclusive. So yeah, I think what we're learning so far is there's a lot more benefit to Microsoft having a title exclusive than just took the sale of that individual. Yeah. Okay. Yes, right. So Steven to your point The Game Pass subscription the ultimate subscription right off Central buying movies TV Etc, which PlayStation fans we.
"bethesda" Discussed on Generation Xbox - Your Home for Xbox Series X News and Opinions!
"All right. Thank you. See you then. Now let's head into the news everybody news and let's start by talking about the Bethesda, you know a company that Xbox was rumored guests. I have some interest in for a while with the deal is done. It was finalized by the European Union last week. So but this is officially part of the Microsoft Family at this point. So guys, I want to get in all that again. We talked about all that at length and so has literally everyone else that you know has an Xbox website at a show or YouTube song ever, but What I do want to talk about is Where Do We Go From Here and Now from a standpoint of like what should we buy next? You know, like let's take a second to enjoy this. But let's talk about what know they have this brand new toy. What should they do with it? And so my question to you guys is this if you're Phil Spencer and your Todd Howard, like what's your strategy for exclusivity? Cuz a lot of box fans want everything to be exclusive to Xbox going forward. Does that make sense from an Xbox standpoint doesn't make sense from like a brand standpoint from a business standpoint from a Fan's standpoint. Like if you're in charge, what's your game plan? Hey, let's go in first year. Well, I mean, I think it's a good idea. It's just start with like they have addressed exclusively now vaguely extremely vaguely, but they have addressed it off with us the Roundtable the other day if I can't remove the exact quote, but Phil Spencer says, There are contractual obligations that some games have to come certain platforms. Right? We know gross white circular desilu PS5 exclusive for you. Yeah outside of that. He said he can have my dog in the background outside of those two games and the contractual obligations. They have this seven billion dollar purchase is about Giving Xbox sounds exclusive content that can only be played on Game Pass. Now. I know they've talked about a case-by-case basis but like taking that as it is most literal way. I see no way that any that says the games come to any platform without gamepass now, it's not to say they won't come to PlayStation or Nintendo switch. Even I could see, you know Older scrolls 6 coming to Playstation at some point. But only if they carry then people getting passed on their system, which is a future I can see off. So I think so what I want to say that for a couple minutes later, okay, but I do want to talk about that as well cuz I know that was a thin kind of floating around but So here's my question, and now I'm like what we'll need you were might they do but if you're making the decision, what would what what should they should they pay off? Exactly. What like put keep them on Xbox and put them on Playstation. I spend like if I am in charge of Xbox and I've just been seven billion dollars on a company to require games. I'm not doing that for like a cook of profit from the PlayStation Store. Like I can see the alternator that leaving money on the table. I don't think that's the end goal in like for me if it was me. That wouldn't be my end goal. It'd be about giving you'd be fighting back against the one critique Xboxes have for like eight years since the Xbox one came out that they just had my first part again. They had no exclusive games and not some reason Jesus is Matt to everybody and if everybody keeps putting like like pressure on companies that have exclusive games and keeps emphasizing their importance then if I was in charge say we have the best exclusive games cuz we have our Scrolls and Fallout and.

"The new york times reports that white house press secretary. Jen psaki indicates the united states will carry out a mix of actions against russia due to the solar winds hack which to be a massive security problem for multiple companies and government agencies in the united states and beyond those actions will be seen and unseen in the quote. So i'm guessing some of them are going to be pretty obvious such as sanctions against russia and others will be on the super duper sneaky side similar cyber warfare tactics. We should remember that. Infiltration espionage and exploitation of computer systems is something. That's pretty much always going on. Between different nation states with different levels of success the solar winds hack was pretty darn devastating. So i don't really think of it as news news that such things are going to happen by the us against russia. Because i said that stuff is always happening everywhere. Everybody's doing it. One of the reasons why cyberwarfare is terrifying

"Do you play xbox games on your web browser microsoft maybe working on making its ex cloud game streaming service even more accessible writer chang. This is your daily charge here. Talk with us about x. Cloud gaming expert offering zola's so what is the latest with ex cloud. So right now myself is testing the streaming platform on web browsers report game outset company. Employees are currently testing it. And this comes before the big public preview the expectation for that is sometime in the spring where everybody else is going to be able to play the browser and for our listeners. Who aren't hardcore gamers. What exactly is cloud. Ex code is microsoft's streaming service. It's it's like the netflix video games. You pay a monthly subscription and games are available of via the xbox game pass and that could be streamed to your android device. It's a ciccio like having an xbox in the cloud ryan what games are we talking about these sort of current titles as it sort of back catalogue of older titles is anything is basically a free for all. It's a very wide range. Aid comes so you have. All the microsoft owned properties which includes of course like halo Bethesda games like fallout. So you have those games And also a lot of the newer games What the brand new ones and medium that's available and that's an xbox series access. Gabe came out. And you can play it on there. So you have those you have the bigger titles those you have any titles. You have odor games so we too wide range of what's available on the xbox xbox game pass got end in terms of the devices you know. There's the browser that we're talking about today you mentioned android. What about iphones ipads will. This is where the news of the web browser is the big news. This will allow ex class. Actually play on ipads and iphones will. What happened was win. Marks off tried to get x. Cloud approved by apple For the app store Apple said well since this includes two hundred games. Do you need to submit every game to be reviewed and of course that's a that's a paid especially since they switch out games every every mother's new games that come in and new games at go out so instead a string of Indicates amazon. Luna which will talk about embiid They're doing their service via web browser. And that sort of sparked. The idea of marks off of mike up began working on that. So yes this will allow people with iphones and ipads to play to stream games of the x. Cloud and of course people general that have a laptop heavy Chromebook have a would have any sort of windows. Device will be able to stream xbox games to it as long as they have a subscription got in so give me a brief state of the game streaming world. You mentioned amazon. Luna is obviously google stadia. What's what's been going on with the various cloud gaming services out there so let's with the big ones stadia stadium is going through a bit of a bit of a tough time. At the beginning of the month dugal said that they are shutting down their in house developers. So right now. Google is not making any games for stadia. They did say though last week that they are going to have a hundred four games. Come out for stadia. Twenty twenty one in general though it still hasn't caught on So there's not a lot of excitement for it as much as it was with. Google first announced it that people have tried and it's just not capturing every everyone then like i mentioned amazon luna. That's right now. And the early access phase people could sign up board. And they maybe picked to try it out if echoed x. Claude is the net flicks for video games. Amazon is appropriately. The amazon prime video of video games in that. There is the for the monthly subscription. Seven dollars you will get access to a certain number of games. Then if you want you can pay a couple bucks more and you'll get another you'll get you'll get access to another catalog like. Ub sauce games. So that's how they're gonna do it to where everybody's going to be able to sort of pick choose what they want. But they're sort of base line of games that are going to be available for the monthly fee de force that is for. Pc gamers wanna take their pc games and play it on a their their phone tablets or black or laptop if they don't have a gaming laptop that had a stumble row stumble last year when it launch because they invidia put out all these games available for streaming. But they didn't tell the publishers so the allergies publishers kept just pull their games from the g force now So it took a while for them to serve sort everything out now the services going smoothly It's actually free but you only get to play an hour for free but If you pay if you pay or you'll get a better access better better fidelity as well as well unlimited time. So that's also available of o'clock eighty. What about sony nintendo some of the other big players in the gaming world. Well sony was the first one to do cloud gaming. What their playstation now That launch back with the playstation four and not early on in the playstation. Four lifetime and sony just has not put any effort into it They release a few games for for its They'll they keep it. Keep it moving. But there's maybe a million or two subscribers which is hardly anything in comparison acts cloud It's just not not their priority at all I don't know if it will be. They'll if sony will change your mind in the future but as of right apple station is just stare sermon. Afterthought as for nintendo. They don't have a netflix type. Service yet The maybe that's the planning they do have a cloud streaming though For hey different reasons. So games like control. That is a very intense graphic game. It is just very beautiful looking and wouldn't it wouldn't attend all has done is dave. Dave reached out to a they partner up with a few publishers and developers and they are allowing these games to stream to the switch. So you still get all the scrape the -delity like you would on an xbox or playstation But you have it on your switch and that prevents the developers from having to create a very a very cut down low graphics low fidelity version of the game that we've seen with some other titles duke maternal win borderlands where they just have to cut out so much where it's doesn't look as great in it's on his memorable so that available but again that is for very different reason than say x. Cloud stadium got and we just went through or still going through the launch of new hardware right with the xbox series acts the ps five taco middleware streaming fits into the future of gaming well in the case of marcus off especially they want you to be connected all the time they want you to when you're at home they want you on your xbox. They wanted they play games. But they want you to look in netflix. Or whatever when you're on the goal they want you to be on the app so you could play games while your way And you're you know if you're at work the what you pull up your browser sake play while you're not working but So that's who marks off once they want you connected all the time and they have like they have the best option for that It gives everybody else. They're trying to find they're trying to get a piece of this because they know that there's a lot of people that wanna play games that maybe do not wanna spend for five hundred dollars on the latest new york so they're trying to find a way to get in there And it's they're. They're all taking their stamps at offering their takes on what the cloud services going to be. So are we ever going to get to a point where we can drop the hardware and the console entirely like you said there are folks out there who may not wanna drop five hundred dollars on a new system bogut appoint were that just completely. Needless completely out of the equation. Everybody's expecting this generation to kind of be the The real he wanted to determine whether we go with or without consoles. It's i still think we're going to need hardware. Future especially the way hardware is being developed with nvidia An md they're still producing this great hardware that that is really going to produce these even more beautiful games a blitz. It option is likely gonna be there in the It comes down to. Who's going to have the easiest access to stream to your tv. I mean the. Tv's are getting having more hardware than getting smarter but the only way to play on your tv right now without a console is like chromecast but if the if roku amazon smart tv's if those devices integrate completely with ex cloud and luna and stadia Well i mean crook assery works stadium but if all these other smart tv devices if they all start working together with these cloud streaming platforms where it seamless where you turn on your tv and you just switched to the the x cloud channel app and it starts going with all your without the xbox games that hey that may be it But we'll we'll have to see in the coming years how this generation pans out and we'll see what the other companies do

"They didn't really have a huge community on Playstation. I know that for a fact because a lot of people are switching to Xbox and to PC because of that. I mean all the small little communities that they had Within PlayStation for Sony and all that. They pretty much were it was dying off pretty quickly. I think another reason it didn't have a very big thing in, Georgia. On Playstation is because it started on PC and then they made their Morrowind which I don't think was on Playstation. I think it was only on the original Xbox and then Oblivion came out which I think was on Playstation. I don't remember but that was there. I mean that's still probably their biggest release of all time, but the fact that it like started on p c and then like Morrowind came out on the original Xbox I think that helps the fact that you don't see a community as big on the PlayStation. Did I don't know if I would like them to be like oh, yeah, cuz I'm not a huge fan of counseling exclusives going to get Doom now. They got Doom now they got that one cuz they have they have Cinemax off The Evil Within yeah, zenimax Studios is under Bethesda on cuz Bethesda owns like six or seven minor Studios that are it's like Activision, but this is like Activision in a sense they market and and and and not only do they make yeah. So the Oblivion was on the PlayStation 3 as well, but God dude, I don't I don't want them to be like all this is an exclusive. This is an exclusive not only can this be a good thing. It can be a bad thing too. Cuz when a big company like this own something it can really ruin development. Yeah, but I think it's getting the cross play that they've been allowing for like all these other games is like really good cuz and that was something she has been so against for so long because mostly because of the PlayStation 4 how I was saying like, you know, there's more PlayStation players out there than there are Xbox players probably off. So when our longer yeah, well one of Sony's biggest like way of like getting new PS4 is out there has been because when will exclaim that but then when you know, like our friend Tanner when he was getting his new when he was getting a console to play video games with us for finally he knew we all we all used to play on Xbox. He wanted an Xbox. Well, if there's more PlayStation players, there's more of that people that have like, oh what, sir I get and then all of their friends most of their friends are like PlayStation players that are going I'll do get a PlayStation so you can play with us. So that's why they've been so against it but because they got such backlash from fortnite because everyone was crossed playing on fortnite besides application they had to do it and then after that it's always been like there's no there's no excuse. Now you have to do this for all the games that want to do cross place. So that's why like Call of Duty's lunch break probably and Apex Legends. They're in their beta for it right now. Yes, finally, they finally have it up..

"See it as an opportunity because who has a hold on the hand held market and who knows not to even compete with a handheld market. So. With nintendo dominating with the switch, why not push a few of your games out there it doesn't have to be all of them but pushing out there and you can make some money off of that. Remember. Last was last year. The last three went to the whole time. Were there. The one thing I wanted to see was game pass coming to the Nintendo everybody wanted to see Phil Spencer walk out on the Nintendo version show. Because there were so many rumors about a thang they were everywhere in honestly with as many rumors are it makes me wonder if it was actually like if they were having those discussions and it just kind of fell through. So, now's a good time. That Game Pass X. Clouds clouds per it's all you need. And I think it's as far as how this will impact. Sony think that's kind of that's probably what we covered, but maybe the question I think how we so I will find tune everything I've said because I feel like I've rambled a lot and I've kind of been all over the place. Just because I don't think I'm even locked into a specific viewpoint yet. Nobody knows nobody knows what what's going to happen for exclusives down the road for for Bethesda But. What I think it could mean I think it means that If. I had to just throw out an answer now I think it means that we will see. Games these Bethesda. Games come to both consoles. We'll see them on xbox playstation. Even. Oh, that's a lot of money to spend to allow playstation to be able to play them. But keep in mind they your allowing people to buy playstation five games and you're making you're making some residuals off that. It's not like you're just making nothing. But also you still have the incentive of game pass. It doesn't matter where the game is available. xbox is making it clear that no matter where you play Sky Rim elder scrolls six five, whatever it is. xbox is the place to do it whether it's on. Mobile or console. Its in game pass man. You just can't deny it, and if it's available everywhere and you're still the the the best platform. Or the the best place to play. I think that's all you need. You don't need to make it exclusive because you've already. You shown the audience that. You're the only option or you're the best option. And I still think we're going to start seeing Sony explosives because that's basically what i. that's basically what my whole thing boils down to is we're going to start seeing less sewn exclusives because of that purchase because I believe they're going to be doing wheeling and dealing. and to kind of spin this real quick onto same subject but a little bit different. Don't forget. This will in some way affect steam. Comes in and. Platforms as well because again now you're going to have the service on pc where I can play skyer and for free and why I don't need to buy it through steam anymore and stuff that. So that's another thing game passes. That's another territory game passes slowly starting to get into lot lot less so than than the whole Sony aspect of but that is that is something that is creeping that way. I think it will. It will be like what we saw with destiny to on a grander scale. Because what that launched did that launch on launch activision It. So it launched on Blizzard's dot net. Yep, and then came to steam yet and I think they're just wrapping up. This transition to where it's only like I think I just got an email the other day like you're running out of time to transfer your stuff over if. So I think we'll probably see something similar to wear. All right. After some after some time. I don't I. Don't know if it will work for for older games or not do they do they bother? I mean you can't. You can't take the licenses away from now the people that have already paid. Jamaica unavailable to where you can't purchase it any longer on steam you can only get it on Xbox I. Don't know I don't know what that means. I'm bothered with those old titles like. Just. Watching me I think that's the move. Don't don't bother with anything. Basically from here on out right in moving forward. Okay. It's only on the XBOX. Right. Yeah, man like my brain just win like a hundred miles an hour with this one because. I came into this and I'm like I really want to discuss this because I've heard so many different viewpoints on feel like they're all great. And I think that's what I enjoy about. These is because we have so many different views and opinions and nobody knows for sure and that's what makes it kind of fun. 'cause. You're tim has this idea of swapping exclusive for exclusive I don't see that happening but who knows I could be completely blindsided in in that could happen years from now got three coming to xbox. To Bundle packages, right? Exactly. They kingdom hearts just throwing it out there. Yeah. I don't think it's out of the question I just. I don't think that's the way that I see it. I, don't see it going that way I feel like like playstation is too stubborn and they know that this is their strong suit like you. You don't give up the the best part of of your strategy. Because that's that's always been what they've had exclusives and that's always been there opportunity or xbox is opportunity is exclusives so you really give that up. I don't I don't think they do. But. You could. You could very well prove me wrong in a couple of years. It's I. I would like would be very interested to see if Microsoft. If we hear something about Microsoft, trying to let them have an exclusive from Bethesda and Sony denying the trade I'd be extremely interested to see if that happens. Yeah. If we hear about these trades being denied yeah I think. With. As it is like you said, it could. Definitely. Be some some major PR backlash. I think something else. That, we didn't necessarily cover as an option. I don't WANNA keep digging up to discuss but I don't think we touched on this..

"So I get that one hundred percent I just think that. That's not at least not at this point in time. The thing that would. would. would be the play. Sure I. Think kind of circling back to the. Sosie the just I guess the main topic with thousand Microsoft I think the key component here is game pass. I think that is one hundred percent with this is what this is about. Without Game Pass. Would it? Would it be as big a deal it it still be a huge deal. Don't get me wrong. But. The fact that. Everything is just it's Day one launch including game pass there. I said before they're just making a pass onto something that cannot be ignored and it was already there like game pass was already kind of like you. Everybody knew about it like you know what? What grade a deal. Game Passes Fifteen million subscribers I think that they announced that that same day it's going to grow with this announcement. So. So game passes the. It's really I I feel like it's game pass versus. The playstation five, not necessarily the the series exer- s you know like like, yeah they've got these powerful consoles to compete with the playstation five. But at the end of the day, if you can play over one hundred and fifty games. Growing and growing. For, fifteen bucks a month or you're paying sixty to seventy I. think the announcement of the seventy dollars games. Kind of was a little little bit of a stab. In an Sony side there because I haven't seen I haven't seen anything like that from xbox. And it's and it's like it's not like Netflix where you know there's a bunch of movies on their own the new movies and. A lot of this is like the I party. Day One games boom they know. Now that includes Bethesda and all of them in any any xbox studio game like so yeah, that's the thing about game pass makes it so good like there have been other gaming subscriptions that do something similar to this, but not to the scale that this is not like I it's it's crazy. How well it isn't a nice thing is other than ex cloud. Games drew by or the Games you can play you download. So you're not streaming study. Look good. Playstation now a streaming service. Versus just downloaded play service for the most part. So like game past is I want to see competition for game pass because it would only. To your it would only drive a better deals better better stuff. Yeah. I don't think we'll see one at least not for a minute because it's GonNa take something a lot to catch up to what that things do. I sure because it when it first launched like it, it was a pretty big deal, but it wasn't anywhere near what it is. No, it was okay in. In I guess to to to counter by earlier point. Because it did. Just, an open discussion, right? These these are just. The first thoughts that are coming to mind. But so at the same time if we do have if we do have. These other subscription gaming as a service models and what do we do we fall into the same? Situation that we did with cable right? Like you you paid monthly for Cable and you've got everything. But now right now we split off to where people are cutting cutting cable and you've got netflix Hulu Disney plus Hbo Mix and your back pain what you were before. Great, it's it's a little more what you you have more control over what you pay for. So if you only one netflix. Cool you're paying fifteen bucks or whatever it is a month. But I, think that's that could be a dangerous good onto as. I think as well. I don't know. I don't think that's in the near future if it's. Definitely, not I don't think it's in the near future at all So but before I forget, we did have a We had a fan fan question pop up when we posted about this last week that I wanted to bring up. So, Aaron, wheeler, asked, how will this impact Sony and Intendo will all future games go straight to gain pass or just titles that are already out? So, maybe I'll answer the second question for so I, think the I think what we'll see. We we just saw doom eternal launch today I think. On Game Pass which is pretty big 'cause it's it hasn't been out but not even. Yeah. And it's phenomenal. Yeah. I think that's huge. I. Think we will. We've already seen some Bethesda Games on there. I think we'll. We'll probably see those permanent installments. I would think I, think previously, they were probably part of that rolling recycler. Yeah. They they cycle in and out we'll probably see the ones that are on there. Now probably come back and stay. Young guys what's that Skyro-. WE'LL GET SCOTT DON'T WORRY Don't worry another another way to play Sky Room. If Future Games I, like we already discussed we will see those day one on on game pass wreck. Now for the first part, how will this impact Sony Nintendo? I'll be honest. I don't think this impacts Nintendo at all I. I feel like Nintendo is is so far in just A. They're playing a completely different game. And that's Okay I works for them. It works for like you have seen no reduction in in switch sales in in switch game sales from from any of this stuff going on and nothing intendo or like cool to each other. Yeah. Like we saw Ori come to to slay choice I think kind of ties back into. xbox is open to Grin I. DON'T I. don't even think he's technically an xbox studio game. I don't think it is. Don't know I. The thing is I don't think Microsoft Season Intendo as a threat at all because there are two different markets and they know they're two different markets. So they don't a threat to them so I don't think that they have an issue but at the same time, they.

"The master himself Mr Tim Webber. That's me your throughout my name I did I was Working with him a little bit. I think our friends with them. Name begins with a T. which doesn't really narrow down for US know. So this this one's a little and I apologize this is This is kind of on me this one's a little. Overdue Because I wanted to talk about xbox by Bethesda for it's probably almost been a week if it hasn't been a week exactly now. Stuff's. We've been doing some stuff that you'll probably see your soon I've been working on that and we've all just had some personal stuff going on but Nin similar finally here to talk about it. and. I think. There's there's a lot to UNWRAP here. I've had some people. Go ahead. I'm just GonNa, say like it never hurts to get a reminder of this because this is such a yeah. Like big deal. This is like some little. This isn't like a little acquisition not that any I feel like anymore like even like when they announced obsidian. That was that wasn't just like a small obviously, but does a little more grander on that scale. Bright. That was still a huge deal. So here to to kind of UNWRAP that give our opinions on this none of us know what's going on and Phil Spencer's mind as far as well. We'll happen but these are just kind of our our thoughts I. Guess. Tim Easier best. Meaning talk actually called me. I kind of gave the go-ahead this. Came to me for approval thing. Okay. What do you think about this? How do you think to spend look? There's lot of avenues you can go down with, say just go for it. You got the money cash just. Yeah, Tim's like I want follow games. Next. My friends playing on any other system they all need to play with me. So yeah. There's lots of impact here. So I guess we'll just get started. So about a week ago I'm sure many of you have seen but if you didn't Microsoft spent seven point five billion dollars to acquire Bethesda. Software in cash. was in big print like they made a point. They brought bills. Did this those a semi truck. Just crates. Money. To kind of put that into perspective. Like how how much money that is to acquire with a? Disney only paid four billion to acquire star wars. So. I don't like that that obviously is a huge. That's probably the biggest media acquisition I can think of outside of you know like Disney and Fox, which is now just as big but. It was more than just Bethesda though, right like it but this is the big part of it, but it was like they acquired was cinemax. So they basically all parts of Bethesda I think it's Bethesda soft works is the is the umbrella. They've got like those do studios under there. You said, Cinemax, I forget what? All the others I thought. There was like seven total like there's this. It however, you want to say it I think it is the correct term but I always when I say It's software. So I mean think about how big that is right. So they they acquired doom dishonored fallout elder scrolls, which I think is the probably the biggest one star Field Star field. That's that's going to be interesting unknown game that never reaction will come to flirtation. I saw. Was One of those facebook articles that kind of POPs up in you're like this is definitely like fake but they're like, oh, the first screen shots from star field And Yeah I I check. I check those things out just like. I don't know sometimes it's fun to just look. I'm really interested to see. What they do with that five years from now when it when it goes into Beta. Anyway so this is obviously a really big acquisition. And I think the first thing that came never once one because they announced the day before Psi preorder live. That that wasn't that wasn't coincidence like that is a very strategic move the day before ps five or Xbox. Sorry xbox. Makes Sense Yeah. Right those. xbox. Went Life Fire. It was a whole mess the day before xbox. It'd be like, Hey, we know that. You're you're still debating these councils here's why you should pick us. Like look we're lackey and exclusive department we understand and not anymore. Yeah. And I think that's probably the I've seen this debated all over twitter I've I've honestly gone back and forth a little bit myself too. But I think the biggest question on everyone's mind is does this mean all Bethesda Games with moving forward are going to be xbox exclusive? Might Microsoft. Microsoft's rate because yes. With with game pass because now that they're a part of xbox we're talking day one launches. For for new games we're talking. Not Having to pay sixty seventy dollars right to to play it. So. I I definitely have a few opinions of my own and I'm I don't even think I'm cemented in that. But I, I, WanNa ask you first because we haven't we haven't really talked about this yet what do you think this means for Bethesda being exclusive or not exclusive to Microsoft. So I. So, here's if I'm a businessman. And I'm sitting here and I'm thinking. Okay. So Sony has some great titles. Sony has some phenomenal tiles. Titles that you literally pay. Whatever that caused that system is just to play at least myself in that list. And what can we do since we have a bunch of studios as Microsoft under our hands under under US What can we do to help even this playing field and I think if you're Microsoft at this point, you don't necessarily make them exclusive. You don't come out saying these are going to be exclusive titles. You use those as bargaining chips to get exclusives away from Sony Hey Sony you want fall out five. We want last of US hey Sony you want you but you know what I'm saying like no, I hadn't thought about that I thought you were going in a different direction you kind of were but then that's I mean that's definitely an interesting. Like plus an interesting thought I think it's a good way for them to make because let's face it. Microsoft has never been stronger in the exclusive game, right? That's really probably their biggest lackluster area when it comes to the market, is that that in itself? So how do you even the playing field you get rid of that completely by making it to where you have. A several of the biggest titles out there under your belt that you can now use. To. UNHINGE into, get those titles you want from Sony.

"We were fortunate Bethesda that they were volunteers coming in through the years have been Personnel that we've added in terms of that. Don't be afraid of failure, right? You know, it's going to happen so it's not going to be perfect, but you better learn from it. Otherwise you just log Heated and no matter what you do, I think eventually sooner or later you're going to be managing people.

We got pushed to say just start something right so we knew there was a need we knew it was there we had some good people around me that finally started something and then we learn from our mistakes improve things. I think that's a challenge in non-profits. If there was one thing I would say to the public that's a real Challenge and home. It's a challenge no matter what agency you have the standards are different people say we need more business and nonprofits, but it's not totally true because in business you can have failure you can have marketing and you can have programs that don't work right and and then you learn from those and you make a better program and eventually one of those gambles pays off and you make a huge wind and nonprofit..

"It's quick hands on fallout, seventy six gene reported that they're talking to obviously from quake on as well, dedicated servers that will support Mods have been confirmed fall at seventy six and then gamespot reports fault seventy. Six brings back the franchises perk system, but this time the perks will be acquired represented through perk cards. Immediately after this was announced, equate con fans beginning to wonder if they would be able to purchase these cars with real money. But as it has now confirmed that per card packs can only be acquired through gameplay. A tweet from the fallout account explains that perk. Card packs are solely by leveling up which may put some fans minds at ease about the matter. But as Pete Hines, also commented saying to a fan quote, you get them when you have up. There are cosmetic micro transactions falls seventy six, but apparently nothing that affects just making all the right Kohl's lightly. I guess the only thing they've done the Nord people keep saying that steam right for the seventy six. That annoyed people. Yeah, but I. I think you kind of expect it and then the other one that I didn't put in the rope report, and I don't think it made it a questions was this thing. Did you see this a little bit of a brouhaha about a guy selling a used copy into? Yeah, they don't like the us games being sold. Yeah, it's it's kinda got blown out of proportion, right? It was a guy trying to sell an open copy that he already bought. Okay. And and in claiming it was new Kazan because it hasn't been wrapped. Yeah, right. But you can't say that you have to say it's used because you bought it and you're not in office authorized retailer, God at some resell your old gang percent God. But the problem was the headline got kicked around. Into this big things. And so like I, it's a weird legality thing. I think they're really arguing about, but I read through and I was like, I don't know if it really requires a rope reports in general. When you look at these two decisions about today? No, no, Luke crate tight money system and and really pushing Sony hot on cross platform. The impression that Bethesda is one of those companies is on the side of the players. They wanna make the right decision whenever they can. I was talking about it right. Like I think obviously, we know Pete Peterman great to us. He's come through a million times we, he left us, call us. Yeah, five minutes before he goes stage very popular character, all sorts of. But I mean, it's the thing of for me for some reason. Bethesda rarely makes game. I'm super into. I respect everything they do, and I really like, I'm still allowed this. I love fall. Okay. I enjoyed skyer quite a bit. Okay. But like dooms not my Cup of tea. Was back in the day. Wasn't my thing. I totally see these games play them. Understand why people love him, but it's just not what I always quality though. Exactly. But then it's the fact that they come out and I feel the no bullshit company in terms of like pizza on here you asking me question the answer curse during it, they're not pulling punches and doing stuff. I think they're not playing punches doing stuff. You know what I mean? Pulling bunches. Their conferences are really good of, hey, we're making a conference for our fans if you want to not care about this shit, fine..
