The Five: Rivera Explodes After Gutfeld's Abortion Tirade

"Speaking about loud hearings, how about this exchange yesterday on the 5 on Fox News channel, Geraldo Rivera really fired up? At Greg gutfeld. The other thing that drives me crazy, now that I'm on my soapbox, is it used to be even the pro choicers would admit that abortion was an ugly thing. But they felt it had to be a necessary evil. Something that would be safe and rare. That was the argument you always heard. But now when you go anywhere on social media, it's something to celebrate, to cherish the unfortunate. Just Bologna. Why are hangers stuck up their private trying to get what? The unborn child. This is exactly what I expected. You bring out the old code. Arrogant. Go go for it. Geraldo, come on, keep going. Don't talk to you. You know something? What? You insulting punk? Okay. About your new bungie. Now listen, I'm going to give a little bit of credit, not credit, but a little bit of because I'm thinking what would happen if I called a huge Hewitt, a little insulting punk. I'd probably be fired. I don't think anybody here at Salem would appreciate me calling a colleague an insulting little punk. I also, in fairness to Geraldo, don't think I should call any of my colleagues a fool or that they're making a fool of themselves. I'd probably get fired for that too. As I should, we're a team here. They're a team on the 5, but maybe they have a different standard than we do.

"The sub headline says Sony's offering bungee employees at $1.2 billion incentive program in an effort to keep them at the company following the buyout. In their recent earnings, Sony says it's prepared to pay 1.2 billion on a long-term incentive plan that will reward bungee employees who stay with the company. I didn't realize this, maybe you guys did, but that's coming out of the 3.6 billion. So 2.4 billion is for the direct buyout of bungie's shares. The 1.2 billion is purely for this incentive plan, retention incentive plan. Deferred payments are planned across multiple years following the buyout closure. The company is prepared to pay about 792 million in deferred incentive payments in the first two years after the deal ends. Bungie will have unprecedented freedom under Sony. It says enjoying full creative execution while remaining independent to self own, publish and release its games across all platforms. Now that we have a bit more detail guys on the $3.6 billion breakout here, has anyone's mind changed at all on the Sony bungee acquisition because, you know, we were talking about how $3.6 billion. It's not worth one. But I think I got the question so I could start if you guys want my mind hasn't changed. I mean, even at 2.4 billion, if that's what you're buying the IP for I still think that's a pretty hefty price. I do think this is incredibly smart that they're keeping the talent because we sort of talked about it last week that we saw this more as a talent acquisition, albeit destiny is a good IP. It's sort of all bungie has at the moment and it is not worth 3.6 billion. So the fact that they're going to be committing a ton of resources to keep the great development team that they've acquired. I think is very smart. It shows that this is a strong team. They have great live service capabilities. They have a lot that Sony doesn't currently have. And developers are expensive, recruiting a lot of developers is tough to do at scale. And we're seeing a ton of money being thrown around in web three gaming, like if you literally have a PowerPoint and can fog a mirror right now, you know, you can get millions of dollars as a startup building web three games. And there's just so much money trying to approach that market that you need to retain talent as a developer, I think. It's hard to argue with good points like that. In my gut, I just read this and it just kind of sounds weak, doesn't it? Please stay with us. We're Sony, we're buying you, you're coming under one of the most well-known umbrellas in all of gaming and please stay here. Please don't leave..

"bungie" Discussed on What's Good Games

"If it's just like a bunch of dudes like profiting off the fact that this became possible because women came forward and are those women even being taken care of. You look at the fact that the federal lawsuit is being handled and settled, but the state lawsuit is not, and that's in a big disarray right now, you know? So I don't know if those women are ever gonna get paid. I mean, riot just settled theirs for like what a 100 million. But it was like a week ago and people forget pretty sure everyone was like super stoked about our cane coming out and forgot the fact that they haven't settled with any of the women in that lawsuit. So I don't know. I'm glad that's gonna happen 'cause it's gonna be in a better spot, but I am like, that sucks, man. I really hope that the women get properly taken care. You know? That's what I hope. Yeah. Yeah? Yeah, 100%. And like you said, it's like, is that ever gonna happen? How do you go back and give restitution to women over literally decades? Worth of abuses that are coming to light and is there a way to do that? And I don't have the answers for that. And the only thing I can say to echo what you mentioned was that it feels like a better step in the right direction. The new leadership underneath Phil Spencer's team and I think that based off what I've heard from people who have been internal at Xbox everything seems to be pretty positive there. Obviously, there's always going to be bad at bad actors, bad apples, whatever you want to call them. Everywhere, but you know, all we can hope is that the people at the top that are moving the needle are doing their due diligence to make the trickle down actually work and not just have a bunch of fluff for a PR bump, but to actually put it into practice and say, hey, no, we actually want to make sure that people are protected and I don't know. You know sometimes, you know, events or whatever. But he's always seemed like a pretty stand up guy, like as far as like all the dudes go. He is. I've known Phil for over a decade now. I first met Phil in 2009. Back when he was like, I don't want to say low level, because I think even back then, he was still a VP. I mean, he's been with Microsoft for a very long time. And he's never been anything but a really fantastic person, and to see him kind of take leadership brains and really kind of put the money where the math is, right? He's never once kind of wavered from some of the core values that he's always stood behind. And like I said, all you can do is talk to people who work at these companies and go, are you happy here? Do you think that leadership is listening to you? Do you feel supported and empowered? And the people that I've talked to have all said, yes. You know, particularly women, women in particular at Xbox that I know have had nothing but positive experiences and I think that that bodes well for the future of employees of activists. Because that would think to us and we talked about it on the show before because one of our former co hosts, one of the founders of what's good games, Alexa ray Korea, now works for sledgehammer gains underneath Activision's label and we were like, how unfair is it for her to be working on this game that she's so proud of? Call of Duty Vanguard to not be able to go out and celebrate it on the Internet because of all of the shit, you know? That's not her fault, you know? It sucks for all the employees that are caught in the crossfire of the whole thing. Outside of just the people like women who weren't paid equal and stuff. That's the kind of thing they should just, that was the main part of lawsuit, right? Like the abuse stuff was actually the second count in the lawsuit. So they're big thing was like the gender pay disparity. Pay discrimination. Is that maybe they will be able to at least with that portion, be able to look at it and say, make that right or whatever that looks like. If they can make that right for people, I think that's important. And then they can figure out the heavier stuff on a separate thing because they're just separate. They're just different. Umbrellas, you know? So, but yeah, for all of the employees that are there, I'm actually looking forward to what it'll look like. I don't know if the sale will go through to be honest. I'm a little concerned about just with where gaming is and meta and I think it's just in NFT. I think this is going to be a lot bigger of a conversation than we'll see what happens. Interesting. Yeah. I.

"But I do appreciate that it's a little less boring at least for me because I have known nostalgic attachment to the original that for me I'm like, I appreciate the different view. I'm still gonna sleep. But that's totally totally fair. You're right. The formula more or less has remained the same throughout the entire existence of Pokémon, but you appreciate that at all. Do you look at that and you're like, oh, well, that's cool. I can do play this differently or you just use it wrong. And that's why I'm trying to remain against self aware and say like, you know what? Elise game frack game freak is doing new stuff. They are making the battles feel a little bit more real time. Like you said, you can run around now. Once you have this much more open world, that's much more open than the wild areas that we're in Pokémon store and shield. And I appreciate that. And I think the writing in this game so far has been the best that I've seen. I've always thought that all NPCs and Pokémon sound the exact same. And I know I'm a Yakuza fan girl, but the writing that game the localization team is just fucking top notch. And they add so many characters to their NPCs and then you go to a game like Pokémon and it sounds like everyone is the same person in a different body. But in this one, I feel like that's improved quite a bit. I do appreciate the steps that have been made. It's just like that bittersweet, it's that bittersweet, I see what you're trying to do. And this is what Brian said on last week. He said, you know, it's a good step forward. And my counter to that is like, but is it a big enough set forward and why just why is the question? Why period? Why is there not being worked on? Why aren't you not like cooperated with monolith? Brian said when he interviewed game freak that they said they liked to be in a small team. Cool, but you don't know why. Why? Exactly. Why? Why? Well, because they make so much fucking money. It's a step. But is it? But do you think it's because they don't want to share in that success with other people? That's such a weird idea to kind of comprehend or grapple with. You have one of the most successful video game franchises of all time that has a loyal fan base of hundreds of millions of people around the world and has been for decades, but you don't have any kind of fire to innovate and do something better or do something different and innovate. I honestly can not grapple with that as a real world thing. Yeah. And then I'm like, okay, well, at the core of everything, Pokémon is a company and companies exist to make money. Why would we spend 500 kajillion dollars on developing this when we could only spend $300 billion and people will but they could catapulted to the next stratosphere of making money and attract like layers and get more excitement for it? Absolutely, but you know, or get people who have left this franchise behind, right? We've poor people. Why can you tell me that why can't I take my Pokémon from game to game? Why don't you take the same buddy every time? Why can I take buddy? I move by to each game and have him and don't let him evolve and just let him be my friend and then have rosalie or whatever is my, you know, can I just do that? Why do I have to catch the same guys every time? You know, and also like, why don't some involve? And why don't they continue making evolutions? Well, there is the Pokémon. They like money. Have you used Pokémon bank? See, I have a dabbled in that myself. So I can't really speak to it. I know that has been a way for you to traditionally take your Pokémon with you, whether or not you can actually incorporate into your game. I don't know. I don't know. But what's the point? It's an NFT, then. Pokémon entities. Oh my God. If anybody was right for NFTs, fucking talking. I've thought about that. I was like holy crap. My Pikachu. Yeah, so I've heard a lot. It's set out like an 85 86 on metacritic, which is like, you know what? That's good. Yeah, it's good. It's great, but it's not like 95. And I'm like, you see that game freak? You see that? You're failing. It's like you're not bailing. Take that. -10%. Take that those negative ten points. No, they're not feeling. And I've read a lot of reviews and the general consensus is a lot of folks are saying like, hey, this is my favorite Pokémon game. I appreciate innovations, but technically, but the repetitiveness is kind of blah. You know, so far, I'm still dabbling in the pokedex, and it's a lot of catch ten star leads to fulfill this pokedex. And I'm like, okay, cool. I don't know how that's gonna feel over like 30 hours of gameplay. I feel like that would be like any MMO or it's like kill ten days. Yes. It's like quest. I appreciate the questing. And I like the crafting. I think crafting is cool. I mean, they're totally making it, you know. Right. And that's what I'm saying. They're doing even a better crafting than breath of the wild, which was horrifying. Oh my God, I love it. I love different personalities and different. No, don't be sorry. That's your opinion, like stop it. People don't get mad at you over a video game opinion and go kick rocks. Puzzles were good. And so that's the thing. It's like, in some ways, I thought sword and shield did things better. I agree with you. I like certain shield. Right, and then you get some of these innovations with Pokémon arceus, archaeus, what the fuck? And I feel like if you can marry the two, put it on the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X, get a team of like, you know, a few more hundred people, then maybe we're talking. But we'll see. So again, I know I've been angry, but I've been bottling this up for like four days now. So get out, girl. Let it out, girl. Let it out. I almost raised Andrea, but I didn't. This is delightful. You can rage text me literally any time with it. People get mad about their favorite franchise. It's one of my favorite things in the world. Because I love it. That's because we love it so much. And we just see the potential, you know? In any way. So anyway, that's why I'm gonna say that. Like, my destiny rants. It's the same thing. But I've never been so angry. I literally like, I could only play for 45 minutes at a time before I get angry, and I rage quit. And I storm out in Jason's like, are you Rach quitting? And I'm like, yep, sure him. I'll be back tomorrow for another round..

"You know, you buy a skin in siege and then maybe it comes to the division and maybe it comes to an Assassin's Creed game like whatever that is because they have a dedicated team working on that where it can also get real complicated, though, is that if you start touting this idea of you buy a skin for your card Forza and now you can carry it with you to Mario kart. It's not dog. That's incredibly complicated and that's not how it works. And so I'm just so fascinated to see how this comes to games because it's coming to games. Regardless, it just is. This is an incredible money making opportunity like it or not for people involved in the space. And so I just can't wait to see how it stumbles or how it successful or how it all comes to play, you know? Sit back, grab your conference. I love that you've been going down this rabbit hole because I have to the event that I hosted last week to be clear was about the metaverse. And NFTs are just part of that conversation, but it wasn't specifically about NFTs. And I want to call out the storied particular why I think Andrew Wilson and EA are like we're not committed to NFTs. I think it has a lot more to do with the potential trouble they could get into with regulatory government groups because it was not that long ago that they got into a whole bunch of trouble about microtransactions and gambling. That whole conversation is really still fresh in a lot of legislators minds. Even though gamers, I feel like have maybe moved on or some gamers have moved on because it feels like 2015 does feel kind of like a lifetime ago. But the whole reason why EA was able, and E is not the only publisher by the way. Other companies who engaged in microtransactions as well, were able to kind of skirt any kind of actual legal punishment around gambling and loot boxes and microtransactions was because they were able to prove or convince the people in charge that the digital goods that you were getting from microtransactions are limited to the game that you're using them in. So if I'm playing FIFA and I buy these foot packs and I get these special characters or the special skins to use in game, I can't then take those things outside of FIFA and sell them on an open marketplace and get real world money for them. They're only worth whatever worth I deem them as in game, 'cause I can't remove them from the gameplay of experience of FIFA. Now you bring NFTs into the conversation and that completely negates that whole argument that those microtransactions are not gambling because they are digital goods that are tied to that particular ecosystem. So it's like, of course, they have to come out and be like, oh no, no, no. NFTs are not a thing. We're not looking at that, but it's like, oh, you are. Absolutely. Absolutely. Yeah. What do you think Michelle? So many opinions on this. Well, okay. Okay. First of all, I don't know if it will succeed. I don't know about that. I think that it's gonna try, I also think that we've seen this already with the Diablo three auction house. We saw how that played out and that wasn't. Was not good. No. Diablo is one of my favorite franchises of all time. And that really, that rooms the game. Like that tanked the game. That very specific thing of players when you Jason, what's his name? What's his name? Jason from Bloomberg, the ACI kotaku. Jason wrote a really great newsletter about NFTs and gaming. And I really resonated with me about my feelings with it. But what he said in his newsletter is great, by the way, if you're not subbed to it, it's awesome. But what he said was, you know, this is horse armor. This is these are microtransactions. And as somebody who's been really involved in the Activision universe for so long, they kind of already do this concept with an in game item, right? If you go to BlizzCon and you get a BlizzCon pack, you're gonna get a digital good in every single one of the franchises. It'll be like tracer is gonna show up in ears of the storm or something, right? But you can't say I were to buy a gun in CS go. How am I gonna take that to hearthstone? You know? It doesn't make any sense to be able to travel through these different genres with these NFTs, unless it's like, so you buy this special skin of a gun, I guess you can only then use those in FPS. And then you can only use those on frameworks that are used the same development tools. And then each one of those developers have to specifically design that gun. If you're in World of Warcraft and you get sort of a thousand truths and you're like, I have this fucking sword of a thousand. Oh my gosh, can you swear on your podcast? Oh yeah. Of course. Of course you can. Oh my God, I got this fucking sword of a hundred throughs like a thousand troops. It's like my sword and I'm gonna take it to CS go. You can't take it to CS50. Yeah, yeah. You can't exist in that world. And so then you gotta ask exactly, how does that work? Like, are you talking then about just like skins? Okay, so then like a skin company would essentially have to license out to a bunch of different games and then create that like in game outfit that your character wears, but you don't even know if a game that you play has a character that even wears an outfit. So how does that translate into that game or maybe you don't get it because you don't have a first person avatar in that game? Like I kind of see how it works for something like the metaverse where you have if this is going to happen, God fucking help us. But if you are like, you know, you have it and you're like, I'm gonna hang this awesome digital art, look at my cool board ape. It's so awesome. And you hang it, you know, look how beautiful it would look right there instead of that. Like it would be beautiful. If this was your room and you gotta like decorate it and make it dope, like, yeah, okay I guess I can kind of see how like digital artwork could work if it were actually a system that could be trusted where artists aren't getting fucked over, but right now they're getting like massively fucked over. There's just an article that came out 80% of NFTs coming out on open sea that use their free tool are fraud. And just today, 80,000. Did you say did you say 8% of 8 zero? 0%. Wow. It's a lot. And then also, Brittany, what you were talking about with how crazy expensive they get, right? 'cause they do because you're like, how is this ape selling? Someone drew that in ten seconds. What is happening? So what's happening is because crypto is all this anonymous thing is somebody makes this end of tea and they're like, I'm gonna say it's me. I'm like, I'm gonna sell this 8. And I put it online. Well, then I can then go and buy it myself and be like, I'm gonna pay 30,000 dollars or whatever that is in the crypto. I'm gonna pay, you know, ten crypto Bitcoin, ten F, whatever you pay for this thing, and then, and then I can be like, oh my God. Look how much it's sold for. That's unbelievable. And then nobody knows, though, that I, I'm the one who inflated the price. And so now it sells because it's becoming this art collector thing, but it's people inflating the price along the way themselves. It's a scam. It's a pyramid scam. And the people making the most money are really rich people. A lot of people will argue it's about generational wealth and I think it's an asset class. And if you have money and you want to play in it, go for it. It's terrible for the environment. And I think what Jason said in his newsletter that will really resonate with gamers and he's like, you know, the moment you take out the meaning of a game, which is like entertainment, have fun. And you make it about making money, it's not, it's a gambling game now. You know? And you see what even happened with.

We're the best. Yeah. Yeah, yeah, of course. They need more WG in their life. That's true. All right. This shows also brought to you by me and these and fixture gaming, but we'll talk a little bit more about that in just a bit. I want to dive right into this whopper of a new story. You know, it feels like the hits just keep coming when it comes to acquisition news in video games. What a mammoth January. It was in video game acquisitions, lots of money changing hands, and the latest is that Sony has bought bungee for $3.6 billion. I tweeted that I did not see this coming, knowing that bungie had quite a long road to becoming an independent studio, but but hey, you know, this one is an interesting one. So over on games industry dot biz, they wrote that after the deal closes, bungie will be an independent subsidiary of Sony interactive entertainment run by a board of directors consisting of the current CEO and chairman Pete Parsons and the rest of the studio's current management team. Sony has said the budget will remain a multi platform studio with the option to self publish and reach players wherever they choose to play. At present the studio is working on maintaining destiny two, of course, which queen's coming in just three weeks. Expanding the destiny franchise and working on new IP, which we know has been in the works for quite some time. So there's some quotes in this story from Jim Ryan, of course, talking about bungie and PlayStation DNA and their partnership throughout destiny. And then they're talking about where their IP will go. Yada yada yada. The thing that I wanted to kind of skip to, which I thought was really interesting is the idea that it wasn't that long ago, even though I guess technically, it was like 20 years ago. It was a 20 years ago. The Microsoft acquired bungee back in 2000. And then they left Microsoft, and then they signed up with Activision in a ten year deal, and then they left Activision, and then we thought, oh, bunch it's going to be out on their own. Nope, now they're with PlayStation. And they are apparently going to work with PlayStation studios to launch more than ten live service games by fiscal 2026. That secondary hidden headline within that story is kind of the bloopers on here. That's insane. So is at the bottom of the notes here. So it's a separate story where I said LOL what? That's the link. I was like, I couldn't believe that that wasn't really kind of the focus of this acquisition. So that to me is probably the reason why PlayStation made such a big show of being like bungee is going to remain independent because it sounds like they're going to leverage their amazing live service and multiplayer technology that they developed for destiny, which I beat a drum about how good their multiplayer is and how good their life service team is. Best in class in the business, I think. And PlayStation doesn't really have that for any of their first party teams. So that's clearly why they made this deal and allowed bungee to retain their independence. What I love about this Euro gamer story that talks more about this ten live servers games deal is they kind of hypothesize about what could these ten games be coming by March 2026, which is not that far away it's four years away. Ten live service games. So they hypothesized the unnamed bungie IP, which is codenamed matter. So is that going to be PlayStation exclusive or will it be multi platform TBD? Naughty dog has been rumored to be working on a multiplayer only thing actually one of the live service things, right? 'cause they have twisted metal, is reportedly in development, right? So and then gorilla has some online stuff going on because they've been hiring for online development roles. And then they also insomnia. Right? Yeah, so those two teams really haven't done live service at all. But I think sucker punch opened the door with ghosts of sushi legends. And what they started with that for multiplayer. And if based off how well that was received, I think sucker punch has a really good base to potentially do a live service multiplayer iteration of that if they wanted to. And then the team over at your gamer also hypothesized the deviation games, the brand new studio that's currently working on a new IP for PlayStation that is made up of former Call of Duty black ops devs, obviously it could be live service based. And then they are like, what about Jade Raymond studio? What she doing. I don't to me like Jade studio doesn't really smack of being a live service. She feels more of like a tentpole narrative single player studio just based off her pedigree and where she comes from as a game maker, but you never know. So it's interesting to me. Michelle, what do you think about this bungee news? I mean, it was surprising. That's for sure. I don't think anybody saw it coming, right? I mean, the first thing I thought was like, you know, it gives them a it gives them a big MMO for the multi or the metaverse. You know, I think a lot of people are trying to have a metaverse game like that, at least like futuristically thinking about it. You know, Xbox now has also World of Warcraft. Or Microsoft. So I would Nintendo already has those kinds of worlds that you can kind of get into between Pokémon and everything else. So I kind of saw this as like a metaverse play, but all of this consolidation that's.

Hey guys. Absolutely. It's been forever. I know. I was telling brittney how fortunate I felt to run into you at the arcane premiere where I also ran into Jackie Jing, who was on the show just a couple of weeks ago. And I was like, I can't believe we haven't had Michelle on the show yet. We gotta get Michelle on the show. I'm so glad that you are here and we're gonna have so much to talk about. There's a lot of who's this week. We caught a good week. Yeah. She is gaming not gonna be twiddling our thumbs, that's for sure. Yeah. No, no. That's for sure.

"Especially because their recent acquisition of Zynga has also been one of the biggest gaming acquisitions in history. And so it's like, do they do they see themselves as standing apart and not needing to be acquired? Because that's at least sort of what we got from during the EA earnings calls, EA seems to think of itself as a company that acquires other things, not a company waiting to be acquired under a bigger umbrella. So yeah, I'm curious to see where take two places and all of this, especially now that they have this giant mobile missing. But what about you? Is there anyone who really comes to mind as you think would fit into the PlayStation group either filling a gap or continuing along someone interested in seeing join PlayStation studios? So again, I'm against all this consolidation, but Sony did make a big purchase I believe it was last year when they bought Evo. They bought the Evo tournament. And they Sony doesn't currently have any big fighters that are made by an in-house studio. So I think if they're going to go after these kind of smaller studios that are specific to technology and doing games in areas that don't have, I think we're going to see companies like an arc system works, that does guilty gear and they did Dragon Ball fighters, they've got a couple other ones that I can't think of off top my head, but our system works, I think, is primed for that kind of acquisition. Iron galaxy studios, which did dive kick, which if you don't know that, it's literally a fighting game where you just literally kind of dive kick to win. It's kind of interesting, very simplistic, but fun. But yeah, I think that's the route that Sony is going to go. I think they're going to go with kind of shoring up talent to fill up their fur to make Evo even a bigger thing that's them. Ideally, they would go after a Capcom or a band dynamic code that has like tech in or a Street Fighter, but I don't think those bigger companies are at a point where they need to be purchased or come into the sunny umbrella. And I think it's better for the industry if they don't. But a smaller company like an arc system works, I think is perfect. I think it's a perfect fit for the Sony umbrella, because their games are super stylish. If I remember at guilty gear, zoo, which was the previous one to strive, was only on PlayStation and PC, if I remember right. I think it might have came to Xbox later down the road. But it was on PlayStation first for a while. But yeah, I think this is just I think that's my pick. I think the way the data a 100% agree with you. I think this is prime for a takeover, right? Especially given their size. My one thing though is like, we know it says does like dev for higher work, right? Like that's how you know that they do money because they will make a fighting game for you if you pay them, right? They made the they made the blade not to place with the grand blue rainbow family fantasy. The blue fancy funny game and they're also making the dungeons and fighter fighting game that's coming out. So they will accept your contract to make you a compelling fighting game. And I kind of like that about them. My idea is one day I'll have enough money and I can hire arcs to make my fighting game. And if they get bought up I still need, I don't think that could happen anymore. Yeah. I mean, that's not agree with these things. Like Jada was saying, it's like, if all of these companies get scooped up, big and small, it limits the potential variety to a certain extent. It means stability and financial backing in a really great way for companies. But it does whittle down sort of the places these things can come from. And yeah, I do think a company like that though makes a ton of sense. And I do think if they get bought, we will have to have Mitchell saltzman on the show to just scream for an hour straight as well with you about that. I should hire them to make the IGN tournament fighter. That should be a future episode of beyond where we do a bracket where IGN staff can just beat the hell out of each other. Do you guys remember? I don't know, I don't know if everyone's here. Everyone was here at the time. But door but you should remember when we did one of those face off things. And it was like, who would win in a fight? And it was just IGN staff. It was like James duggan versus Miranda Sanchez. The size of tree trunks. But I think Miranda was like at the top. Yeah. Like in the final bracket. It was like Miranda was at the top and like Tom parks was super high, and I'm like, Tom marks. I think because we all know Tom is hiding a rage deep within him. There is a clear his bow tie detaches and becomes too daggers. Exactly. He's very clearly someone who's ready to go to the super saiyan level, but is holding it for like the opportunity moment. We would play that in the carpal and I'm like, oh, sorry, Mitchell, I just got Mitchell and someone stronger than Mitchell. Yeah. I'm blanken. You know, I think what would be better suited for a PlayStation show than to talk about who's tougher at IGM? The toughest. I mean when it comes to like game skill, I think if we were doing a bracket on that data, you would wipe the floor with all of us. I said it not me. It's a 100%. My strong feeling, if we ever go toe to toe in a multiplayer game, I'm not expecting to win at all. I will be happy to get a party. I sure didn't. She beat me at the dodgeball game. That is true. It's funny. I've never played it since. My first interaction with IGN, prior to starting with the company, this was like 5, 6 years ago. It was in a tiki bar. And I was hanging out with some friends of IGN people. And I was in an arm wrestling contest with this person. And I was literally this arm wrestling contest went on for so long that I didn't end up talking with many of the IGM people that I was hoping to meet and network with. And I was playing around the whole time with the person I was I'm wrestling, 'cause I was drinking the whole time and just Brandon home, wasn't it? Just anybody who's Brandon hunt was. This is a non non IG an employee. It's actually the interview process. You were being interviewed at the time. Yes. You have to beat pear Snyder in a good GM and then arm wrestling match and then you have to do a pick cross race with him to see who can solve a puzzle faster. So it's like the Street Fighter worldwide tournament, but different events every time you go to a different person. Exactly. I didn't like that, but it's like that, but way more nerdy if you can believe it. I can. But no, I think all of that makes a lot of sense. And yeah, like Jada to your point, it is one of those things where it's like we're talking about it because we know it's going to happen. And I think it's just sort of a inevitability at this point. I'm very, very curious to see the moves PlayStation makes in this space and in this regard. Because at least so far, it doesn't seem like they're interested in gobbling up the big players, but whoever knows with I see people like square Unix and Capcom get thrown around a ton and obviously like PlayStation has a very close relationship a square. I don't know if square is a company that wants to be purchased in a case like this. It's one of those interesting things where people say it. But it kind of depends where they think their money is best suited. I think square makes a lot of sense, but I could also see PlayStation continuing to just make these exclusive partnerships with PlayStation for Final Fantasy games and for Kingdom Hearts spin offs or things like that. I think that is just sort of the relationship there. And it seems to be working well for both sides..

"And grow beyond PlayStations quote. Historic console heartland, and I love the idea of just like a Prairie where PlayStations were free. But he said, I've been on record talking about increasing the size of the PlayStation community and expanding beyond our historic console heartland. This can take many forms, Jim Ryan said, in an interview with industry, games industry is. We are starting to go multi platform. You've seen that. We have an aggressive road map but live services and the opportunity to work with in particularly learn from the brilliant and talent people from bungie. That is going to considerably accelerate the journey we find ourselves on. And so yeah, this is going to be a thing we're going to be talking about as much as I think we are reticent to see the games industry become PlayStation versus Xbox versus Tencent versus Nintendo versus the embracer group, I guess. They have like 500 companies. So it's like, that is a worrying future, but we know that Sony is going to keep making these moves. And I'm curious who you all think they're would make a good fit who you think they might go for at this time. I have a few thoughts, but I also don't want to steal anyone's thunder, but Mark, I do want to start with you because you wanted to leave this as a mystery for us. He did not want to tell us your guess. He's got overblown. We do our planning show. And I was like, I have a guess. It's not that big of a deal. And it was like, they were like, who is it? And I'm like, well, I'll talk about it on the show, and now it's this like big mystery. I think a very easy guess is that they'll try to scoop up mi Ho yo. Just because genshin has already been exclusive console exclusive to PlayStation, it's existence, right? There's the story of the dude who smashed his PS4 when that game got unveiled because it was like, this is a part of the wild rip off and so he'd like. That was his protest, and now the game is super popular and makes tons of money for that company and PlayStation, right? It's also on mobile and PC. So it would not surprise me if they're going the live service route. Acquire a Japanese company that's already a live service game that's already exclusive. Shoe hay already plays this game. Not too fucking, but Chinese owned company, actually. Oh, okay, okay. It's a big fan. That's my most Twitter interactions I get with him is when we're talking about Genshin Impact. Yeah. Yeah, also, you know, anime is so popular, so I can imagine you know these characters are like super fleshed out sometimes and they have all these cool reveals and they have all those backstory when they get introduced. This is who she is the greatest character to ever exist ever. And I can imagine them trying to make some sort of an impact, anime, right? Like why wouldn't I? A 100%. So that is such a good guess. I totally that one went under the radar for me. I didn't even think about Kenshin. But that is such a smart choice. Also, a company not owned by Tencent as far as I'm aware, so it's kind of up there. I mean, PlayStation is making a very big push in China. I think again, Daniel amaz has shown a lot of the PS5 launch stuff they've been doing. They're really big advertising pushes there. And genshin has been a massive game for PlayStation. So that is, yeah, hats off to you, Mark. I really did not even consider that. And that is a really, really good pick. I did it. Matt, I don't know if you have, 'cause I know we asked you after our planning meeting if you have any guesses. But if you do. Yeah, so the one that I sort of okay. Well, okay, so the one that I thought for the longest time up until the bungie announcement this week was that the only real studio that I feel like it's in with PlayStation studios mold of cinematic third person narrative driven games was take two was for rockstar specifically. And also the bonus of getting NBA two K as a result. Along with BioShock and a bunch of other things, but in terms of like cinematic triple-A experiences, I sort of really just sort of gravitated to take two. But it's true. They already have a bunch of studios that do that. Take two makes ginormous amounts of money to the point where I feel like they are maybe one of the few studios that can relatively be who knows anymore, but they're one of the few studios that can really sit out this whole acquisition war that's been growing. Yeah, now that I'm thinking about it, maybe it is like miho yo. Maybe it's something maybe it's something more attainable, but something like as equally like big in a in a sort of spot that PlayStation does not have current studios for. They're trying to plug in gaps. I don't know, that was my guess is rockstar game. It's not far from move from a naughty dot game at this point. But you know, maybe that's not what they're looking at. Maybe they're like, we already have those. We already have a naughty dog. We already have it in some fields. No, totally. I mean, I think take two is a really interesting one on both sides..

"The in game content for the next expansions and stuff. I don't personally foresee that happening. Well, I'm reaching back like 8 years, I guess, but I feel like they did that with the first thing where they're station inclusive. And yeah, I think the community hated it, and I think bungee realizes this, and I don't think they're going to, if they have a say in the matter, I don't think they're going to let Sony kind of do that. I think there may be some like I said, there'll be some bonuses, there'll be some exclusives. There'll be some smaller early stuff to PlayStation. But I think the core big things will probably still hit both consoles at the same time. Yeah. It's a really strange scenario because as we were all pointing out, like it is a SIE published thing now and not necessarily own thing and not necessarily a worldwide studios published thing. But I think like mark to your point of them wanting to be this ambitious, multimedia industry company that is already 900 people strong. That's bigger than a bunch of Sony studios combined. I think they very much are looking at destiny I think Sony is as a brand that they can now own the name recognition too. Like everything is about who do you associate these brands with? And so even if people are playing destiny on PC or on an Xbox or seeing it as a movie or seeing it as a TV show or reading a book or whatnot, it is going to have a PlayStation or a Sony logo in there, like somewhere. It's going to be eventually tied back to the ownership of that company. And I think that one creates a fan allegiance, but also just as everyone was saying, creates a lot of revenue too, like a crazy amount of revenue is going to come from this, I assume. Counselor, can I respond to Jada, please? Yes. Yes. Two minutes. I don't know about the exclusive stuff. I can imagine I can picture that not happening, right? So exclusives come from marketing deals. That's not really going to be a thing, right? PlayStation is not going to have a marketing deal with bungee. They own bungee, right? So PlayStation is obviously going to want. If they had their way, everybody would play destiny two on PlayStation. Of course. But at the same time, it really doesn't matter for them anymore on the surface where people are playing destiny too, as long as they're playing destiny too, and people are buying skins and buying the expansions. PlayStation gets money for that. So I think that they would stray away from any sort of exclusive in favor of people just being as happy as they can with the game anywhere they play it. And that is my two minutes. I appreciate it. I mean it. You wrote a story about this about how they are like things in development right now will not be PlayStation exclusives. They are not trying to limit their player base. Even their new IP that we kind of know is in development from job listings and things like that. Is not going to be platform exclusive to PlayStation, but I think as you wrote, I'm stealing your words. There's flexibility in their wording in the Q&A where it's like, if future games and development will become PlayStation studios, those will remain multi platform that isn't to say this will always be the case. So who knows in the future? I am sure at some point, bungie will make a game that only comes to PlayStation and PC players or something like that. I just assume that is an inevitability. Yeah, okay. A lot of ton pack. So a couple things, right? So fungi previously once said that they told us I believe in an interview ahead of their 30th anniversary that their goal is to be a multi franchise studio by 2025, which isn't actually that far. So within the next three years, bungee will have multiple franchises. They have one, so clearly that just means that they want another one. And yeah, so the wording is currently in development games when a future future bungee games currently in development will not be PlayStation exclusive, meaning that presumably whatever big new IP that they're currently working on that is currently in development that we know is currently in development will not be a place to exclusive. Does that mean any potential IP that's not currently being worked on will be multi platform? You know, who's to say, right? And even then, even if they fully commit to multi platform until the end of time of bungie, there are other things that they can do. One of the other goals is to tell news stories within the destiny universe. So I don't know. A destiny RTS because bungie genuinely loves RTS. They began in that genre and they still love it and from what I hear halo wars one and two are amazing, just people just don't play them. Like I can imagine like a destiny spinoff RTS could be PlayStation exclusive. But another weird thing though is like bungee spent the last two years aggressively being on as many platforms as possible. It used to be just consoles and those consoles and PC but through battle net, and then they fought really hard to get off of battle that. And now they're free to play on PC. And now they're on stadia, which I'm constantly reminded of. Four people are real happy. Yeah, right? Like every stadia announcement comes with. By the way, I remember destiny two, you can play it on stadia. But yeah, so it's a thing where I feel like the company already was on this path of aggressive everywhere in this, right? And you can't just put that Genie back in the bottle just because you got bought by Sony. Aggressive expansion to quote the joker of The Dark Knight. Yeah, it feels like that is definitely something that has been such a clear goal for them and it would be a shock to see destiny the game. You know, whether it's destiny two or even destiny three become PlayStation exclusive all of a sudden, I think it would just totally go against what it seems like they've been working on. And I think very clearly the fact that they are not underworld white studios implies this level of freedom and independence that they're aiming for and want to sustain. And I think that's going to, again, just be mean a more of a revenue driver, more of an association with PlayStation for people who play destiny. I think at the end of the day, working in those confines. But as we said, it also means bungee can make movies and TV shows a little bit easier. PlayStation productions is a big thing, PlayStation has been wrapping up. We have the ramping up excuse me. We have the last of us show that goes to Tsushima movie, the twisted metal TV show. I think they've said there's like a dozen projects in development already within PlayStation productions. Don't forget about uncharted. Well, best thing ever. That one doesn't really count, but it sure doesn't. And I want to say that very clearly 'cause I love my boy Tom Holland. That is only because that movie has been in development for a decade and has nothing to do with PlayStation productions just to be clear. But anyway, they have all that going obviously bungie as you said markets like in the first couple graphs of the bungee announcement. They want to be more than a game world. They want to be, I think they want to be a Star Wars or a Star Trek or a MCU. They want destiny to have that cultural cachet and having a partner who makes films, not just a PlayStation, but Sony Pictures. Who has a huge music arm and can probably have big earnest come in to do music for the game or the world or the TV show in the movie and whatnot to have all of this at your fingertips as part of the company you work for is probably very alluring for them. Yeah. In a world where things like arcane and vox Machina exist and their TV shows that people are absolutely loving and the big thing everybody keeps saying is you don't need to be a critical role fan. The like vox Machina, you don't have to play league to know what's going on in arcane and enjoy it. I can imagine this world where destiny gets a Netflix series and people are like, oh, this is weird and they're like, no, no, it does not matter if you play destiny. Like the series is awesome. I also hope that destiny is genuinely cool like lower wise. That's what people tell me to try to get me into it 'cause I'm not always the biggest multiplayer shooter fan because I suck. But everyone's like, yeah, the way their lore is wild. And so I should probably get into destiny now. But some of the best gunplay in a first person shooter to ever exist..

"And so that's a lot of resources a lot of well honed stuff from decades of work that suddenly a team like that has access to. And so bungie gets access to that. Sony gets access to bungees, tech and technology. It's a really interesting partnership and I think has a lot of different implications to it that we can go through. But Mark, I did want to start with you because I know we've talked a little bit about, I guess, first of all, the sort of multi platform of it all and I know we've discussed a little bit. Obviously they're saying, as of now, plans continue to be to keep things in their next project multi platform, but what is the future hold? What do you expect from this deal? Do you anticipate that? Especially in light of the Call of Duty conversations we've had, what do you kind of think looking forward might happen in this case? Well, first off, it's pronounced bungee, short for cow bungay. It's an internal reference. I gotta go. I'm gonna leave. Yeah. Not a lot of people know that. It's weird. My gut reaction was, of course, destiny two is going to stay multi platform. Why wouldn't it? I think it's illegal for them to suddenly just pull it off of like things like Xbox, right? People have spent money on that game, so I don't think that that's was ever in the back of anybody's mind, but maybe it was. But my reaction was, well, destiny three is probably going to be PlayStation, but as this news has trickled out, I'm seeing a lot less of we bought bungee because we want their games to be PlayStation exclusive and more we want destiny. We want that property because we want to make movies and TV shows and we want that there like world world class cutscene making and stuff like that. We want to translate that to movies and stuff. And so PlayStation is looking at it more as we own all these properties, we can help them make it better and they can help us make it better. It's a lot like Death Stranding, right? Kojima went on like a road trip tour to go to the other studios to find what engine he wanted best stranding to run on. And it's that kind of partnership is what I'm going to see here is them, like you said, choosing dev tools and being able to naughty dog being able to maybe make their cut scenes even bigger using some of bungee tools and then vice versa. So it's such a different it's such a different acquisition, I think, than just, you know, they're now a PlayStation studio. I also find it insane that they're saying, now we get to hire more people. 900 plus people already work at bungee. That is a huge studio, so it shows that they have gaps somewhere. That's 900 people working on a game and future games, right? It shows that they want to do more than this, especially since they said, you know, today's the first day we are going to start our journey of becoming a multimedia company. It's a big and I think it's a lot different than the more recent acquisitions we've seen. Yeah..

"To a brand new thing hey folks, I'm Kevin Correa and this is your E sports minute. Popular YouTube streamer and 100 thieves co owner Valkyrie has confirmed she'll be staying on the platform for the foreseeable future as announced on her Twitter page. With 3.6 million subs and averaging 18,000 viewers every time she streams, it seemed like a no brainer for her on the heels of one of her more personally successful years, despite the failed launch of her skin care line known as reflect, whereas one popular streamer confirmed where she'll be staying another's is up in the air as pokeman announced that today will be the last day of her Twitch contract. She teased a major update to come in exactly a week, but left no clue as to whether she would be staying on Twitch or moving on to a competing platform. Might be another bout of streamer wars set to flare up in 2022. While we know Microsoft made the biggest splash this month with their intended acquisition of Activision Blizzard, Sony and PlayStation have made some waves of their own. Sony interactive entertainment announced the acquisition of former Microsoft developer bungie for a reported $3.6 billion. After halo threes release in 2007 bungie split with Microsoft and sometime later, came under Activision's umbrella to develop the destiny franchise for the next ten years. Now though under Sony bungie will remain an independent subsidiary and retain the rights to the destiny franchise and anything else they develop moving forward as they join the PlayStation family of developers for their platform. Over the weekend, the LCS lock in tournament concluded with team liquid defeating evil geniuses in a three O sweep of a grand final taking home $150,000. Now we can start counting down the days for the start of the spring split for the LCS this coming weekend. And finally, blast premier spring group stage has concluded with phase OG and G two securing themselves finals births in the plane stage. These matches get set to go on Wednesday with the last chance qualifiers to come this weekend. I'm Kevin Correa. That's my time and that has been your eSports minute.

"But the fact of the matter is that we own bungee and you see that PlayStation logo at the beginning and we get the money because the destiny sells. And you could even have those things where it is. All right, new content comes to PlayStation first. Or PlayStation exclusive skins. Here's PlayStation exclusive XYZ that comes to our platform first to entice people to cross over. But yeah, there's so many questions in terms of what this means, but I do think and to the point of it being a clapback or non clapback, right? You make a good point of something like this in the works for a while. PlayStation did not call bungie last week and goes they were gonna buy you. That is not the case. This isn't a direct reaction to Activision Blizzard. I do think it is a direct reaction to Microsoft over the last couple of years, making all these big acquisitions and PlayStation learning to secure something of their own. And I don't think this is the end, right? And we talk about, is this a good or bad thing when you're talking about the consolidation of the industry and third party is going away and all this stuff? It's a thing that scares me. It's a thing that I think in some aspects could be exciting when you're talking about bungee having that security and having having a fallback in case their next big IP doesn't hit, well at least they're under PlayStation. And so they're not just going to go away. They're going to continue to work and make stuff with that security behind of being underneath the PlayStation. You know, I think stuff like that is cool. But on the other side, I'm like, oh man, okay, who's going to get next to be bought up? Because that seems like is what's happening now. Yeah, because, you know, when the Activision acquisition happened, I heard a lot of people say like, oh, PlayStation should buy square next, PlayStation should buy capcoms like no, I don't want PlayStation get either of those studios because I think they work better. Independently in that sense. And bungie make bungee makes sense 'cause bungie's main thing is destiny granite that's gonna like, you know, they do new IP or they do destiny and they are working on a new IP, but I think that in the grand scheme of the kind of blueprint that bungee seems to be shaping out for themselves. They are kind of, I don't want to say like they're going like the Fortnite route. They're trying to become more than just a game and more of a platform. And I want to I think that one, whether it be PlayStation or Xbox, buying them and deciding letting them do what they want isn't really going to harm things in the long run. Unlike being like, all right, all Final Fantasy games in the future and like all dragon quests all Kingdom Hearts, you know, like all these really beloved JRPGs of, you know, in a very niche genre overall limited to only one platform. That isn't good. Yeah. As you close out this news story, Paris lily, you're still in the cold. Do you have any final words about Sony buying bungie? Of course, we're going to continue to talk about this. I'm sure news news for the next few days might still bring in details and the ramifications of this story just like they did for the Microsoft accusation of Activision Blizzard. But of course, we're also going to talk about it on PSL, U XO XO. So if you're looking for more conversation about that with me great and Janet for sure, tune into that episode, but Paris has to close this out. Any final words on Sony buying bungee from the host or one of the hosts of kind of funny xcas and a big destiny, bungee fan. Yeah, I mean, I would just say to close it out, obviously huge shock to have this drop the way that it did, but when you look at where the industry is headed and when you look at kind of like you're already saying the past couple years with the way that studio acquisitions and entire publishers have been acquired by some of these companies, I think what we're seeing is PlayStation, even and Microsoft are trying to keep these studios away from the Tencent and the amazons and the facebooks and the apples of the world. Because and to counter that, you got to start making these games available beyond just one platform. That's where it's headed. So I think as we get more information as we start to look at this more. I'm actually seeing good in this. I don't think it's necessarily terrible for gamers. I think if anything, we're just going to have more options on where we can play our games. And that's not a bad thing. And go for it. I wanted to say Phil Spencer has responded to the acquisition news saying congrats to the talented teams at bungie, great testament to your creativity and congrats to PlayStation Hermann holst on adding a talented team to your studio's team. There you go. I was expecting to be like, oh, I feel Spencer has responded by buying Konami. Everybody. He said, fuck it. All right, you want war? It'll be war. Again, like I said, we're gonna continue to talk about this stuff, but for now, I want to let everybody out there know that you can go to Patreon dot com slash funny games where you can get the show.

"bungie" Discussed on Kinda Funny Games Daily

"Into unexplored spaces for bungee. Continue to push boundaries of what is possible and will always be built on a foundation of creating meaningful, lifelong friendships and memories. Remain in charge of our destiny, we'll continue to independently publish and creatively develop our games, which is very big, right? We will continue to independently publish and creatively develop our games. We will continue to drive one unified bungee community. Our games will continue to be where our community is, wherever they choose to play. With SIE support, the most immediate change you will see is an acceleration in hiring talent across the entire studio to support our ambitious vision. If this speaks to you and you want to help us put a dent in the universe, we are hiring across all the disciplines for destiny two, and for all new worlds beyond Paris, we're still here, does that do anything to your thinking of what this means for the future of bungee? Yeah, it does and actually this opens it up to a bigger question just with PlayStation overall where you and I have been joking on Twitter about game pass never never come into PlayStation, but this comes into the overall thing where the industry's changing. It's not about one platform anymore, right? And clearly Microsoft is seeing that and they're doing it. In my opinion, this type of acquisition in the way bungie is talking, PlayStation starting to see that too. It's not about just putting a game on the PlayStation platform. It's about putting it where gamers are, right? Under the quote unquote PlayStation brand, and it seems like they're telling bungee, all right, we're going to partner up with you. We purchased you. You're now a studio under the PlayStation brand, but you still have the creative freedom that you had previously to do games the way that you see fit. And going by that wording, even their new IPs is not going to quote unquote be console exclusive. They're going to continue to self publish and put these gains wherever they can, right? So, again, I think the industry shifting. I really do. I think if anything as a gamer, yeah, we're seeing all these acquisitions and there's the good and there's the bad part of it, but I do think part of the good of this is we're starting to see these major publishers rethink the way console exclusives work where sure. We're going to have it on our hardware. We're going to offer that to you, but we want to reach everyone so that means we're going to expand just beyond our console platform. So in a way, nothing if you're a destiny player, it sounds like nothing's changing for you, right? So what else does this mean for the future even beyond bungee? We've already seen PlayStation start to experiment with the PC, I do think that escalates. I think we're starting to see an escalation throughout the rest of this generation. Where we're going to start seeing PlayStation games, damn near everywhere. And it'll be real interesting when they announce spartacus and how that works too. Yeah. And we've been having this conversation a lot lately with PlayStation games coming to PC, where it is. What makes sense replacing the PlayStation strategy. Where the games are all about, hey, we want to sell the boxes. We want to sell consoles. We put out the last part too to sell you on PlayStation fours. We put out Returnal. We put out ratcheting clang grift apart to sell you on the PS5. What does that mean for multiplayer games? Where the thing I've been talking about personally on shows lately is that with Microsoft acquiring Activision and Bethesda right, you start to lose out on certain types of games for PlayStation where historically, or traditionally I should say, when there are gaps in, let's say, single player, third person action games on PlayStation. PlayStation studios fills in those gaps by putting out games like God of War, the last ghost shima horizon et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. Now that Microsoft has, Bethesda, which has a large book of first person shooters, along with big western RPGs, and now Activision with Call of Duty. And as place as you no longer have that big hold on what the future of Call of Duty might be, or at least you don't have as big of a say anymore. The thing that I've been thinking about, the thing that I've been talking about is what do you do as PlayStation to fill in those gaps? You've made partnerships with Jade Raymond studio with deviation studio and deviation seems to be working on assumes working on the first person shooter because of what that studio is. You have the partnership with firewalk studio, which announced that they are working on a new first person shooter IP for PlayStation. But is that enough? How do you further that? Acquiring bungie, I think, is a very big step. Maybe the big step into making sure that you have some big name first person shooter that is on PlayStation that you can rely on to be there that isn't going to get scooped up by the competition. But that then brings in the question of, all right, how do we maintain player base? How do we as PlayStation who have essentially mastered putting out big triple-A single player titles on our console that people flock to? How do we do that for multiplayer games? How do we be that place that knows how to foster these that knows how to make this work? You've had stumblings here and there with things like destruction all stars, which I know is in a big title, but it is a multiplayer title for PlayStation. Those are very few and far between for PlayStation first party studios. How do we do that in a way that treats them that treats that right? And in this acquisition for bungie, I do think going multi platform and having bungee operate as much and giving them as much freedom in leeway as possible to operate the bungee way is a big step in that. And Paris, I'm right there with you that the industry is changing. The thing I've been talking about and this goes back to our back and forth of is game pass ever gonna come PlayStation is not going to come to PlayStation is the fact that exclusives play a big part now, especially for PlayStation and switch. I think less so for Xbox exclusively exclusive play a big part, but I don't think that's the only part of the strategy anymore. I think game pass existing on PC, game pass potentially, maybe coming to other consoles one day, right? I think could be evident of, yeah, as long as we have you as part of our platform as part of our ecosystem, it does not matter the fact that you're playing on another platform as long as they're still in the Xbox ecosystem. I see PlayStation have the same thing where, hey, you buy destiny on PC, you buy destiny on Xbox. The money still gets put in our pockets. Yeah, we're not selling PlayStations based on purely the game coming out exclusively on the box..

"So it's safe to assume they're working on something multiplayer wise for whatever this new IP is going to be. And I'm actually looking right now, bungie did put out a tweet. It's an image, but basically they're saying destiny itself will remain everywhere. Self publish creatively independent. It's not nothing's going to change as far as that goes. So I would assume this is all future stuff coming from bungee, where obviously PlayStation is going to have the option to make it exclusive. They could keep it everywhere. I would assume for me personally, anything that bungie is doing moving forward. Yeah, console wise, it may be on PlayStation, but it's probably going to show up on PC two. That would be my guess, right? Because that's just kind of been their DNA, you know, with destiny. So why would they completely shift gears as far as that goes? That is technically multi platform, when they say multi platform. So they could just be like, oh, it's going everywhere. It's going on PlayStation and PC, but it's not going to Xbox. That makes sense. That loophole, right? Because it says, with the option, like bungie has the option to self publish and reach players wherever they choose to play. So that means anywhere. But without wording, it could just be PlayStation PC no Xbox. I want to hop into this blog post on budget's website because as the news went up, of course, I pulled from games in your shop is Bloomberg has an article as well. Everybody's put not articles. I want to pull directly from the source itself, bungie dot net, where they write a blog about what this means for them. It's titled bungee joined Sony interactive entertainment. We believe games have limitless potential, and that to do anything worthwhile and entertainment. We must bet big on our vision on our studio and on our incredible team of trusted creators who build unforgettable worlds that truly truly matter to people.

Where Is the Reasonable Balance Between Safety and Liberty?

"We were about to get onto an elevator of a building in Boise Idaho. And the elevator doors open and the woman's wearing a mask, which is fine. I've never attacked anyone for wearing a mask. And she says, excuse me, do not get on this elevator. Go take the next one. And I knew what she was saying. She wanted the elevator to herself. And one of our other team members was like, why? And she said, because none of you are masked. You see that? You see the way this works now? It's not enough that she wants to wear a mask. She wants to force other people so that she can also feel safe. And for her, the most important thing in her life is being safe. Being safe is important. It is an element of human life. There are risks that I am not willing to take. There are some things I tell my team, I'm not gonna skydive. I'm not going to bungee jump. I don't think that's that dangerous though. Bungee jumping? It could be, I guess. Depends where you do it. No skydiving, no bungee jumping, no more skiing, the last time I went skiing, everyone said I had a great time. Woke up in a hospital. True story. Not doing that again. There's just some things I'm just not going to do. The risk reward ratio, I don't want to end up kind of paralyzed in the waist down and be like, you know, my entire life has been disrupted, but at least I got a good thrill bungee jumping. Like, it's just the reward, and I'm not sure we have a lot of skydivers listening. And that's fine. I hope you enjoy it, and I hope it's worth it. For me, I've decided not to do it. So I'm not someone that is a risk seeker for the sake of doing it. However, I want to live a full life and walking around with a mask while natural immunity is set into well over a 100 million people. I would imagine this woman who got very angry at us was vaccinated, it just kind of begs the question of where is the reasonable balance between safety and

Agriculture Industry Bets on Carbon as a New Cash Crop

Agriculture Industry Bets on Carbon as a New Cash Crop

"The newest cash crop for farmers may be greenhouse gas some farmers who normally make their living raising crops in the soil are now getting paid to use those plans to capture carbon dioxide from the air and put it back in their fields. Big agricultural companies including bayer and cargill are jockeying startups. On these initiatives their goal is to incentivize farmers to adopt climate-friendly practices and developed markets for carbon for more on the story. We have jacob bungee who covers the agriculture industry for the wall street journal. He spoke with our charlie turner jacob. How exactly does this. Carbon capture system work. This is a system. That's based around voluntary offsets or credits. Being purchased by companies and these could be food companies. that could be an energy company. It could be tech company that says they want to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by some amount or achieve net zero emissions in one way that they're now going to be able to do. This is by effectively. Paying farmers who raise crops like corn and soybeans to manage their farms in such a way that the fields the soil captures carbon and stores it in the dirt and the reason for that is because plans grow. They withdraw carbon dioxide from the air. They use this in the process of photosynthesis to produce energy to grow In that process the plants then release carbon into the soil. there's no federal requirement for companies to offset their greenhouse gas emissions by buying credits from farmers. So why are companies interested in this over the last ten twenty years even longer you can see examples of consumer facing companies. Want be more sustainable and any number of reasons for this. I mean some of the have this. As part of their corporate mission as important to the founders in other cases it helps draw consumers to companies and and try to have more of a warm and fuzzy feeling by using their products or services. And so while there's no federal requirements for these companies to go and purchase carbon credits or or reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. There's a commercial incentive to do. So could you points with consumers it can be for all the the companies view. It could be the right thing to do. Farmers have long struggled with low crop. Prices how does this benefit them. Well the benefit for a farmer could be getting a check for doing this. This stuff that we talk about which for a lot of them is the type of thing that they're doing anyway to enrich their soil to get better crop yields for their typical crops and the end result is as we say is that farmers can potentially get paid for this. The company is a are pursuing. This we mentioned some of them. Bear the owner of the monsanto seed business a big agricultural company cargill one of the biggest traders of grain in the world. There's some startups pursuing. This and the idea here is that they can quantify how much carbon these farmers are are questioning in their fields with these practices a certain number of tons per acre they can be paid by the ton or paid by the acre for these practices. All these programs now are in their infancy. In some cases they're pilots and other cases they're meant to be long lasting things with just that the the first innings however the companies that are pursuing this as well as some of the farmers are hopeful that a demand from big companies that want to reduce their carbon footprint or be able to offset parts of their businesses. Might come into this market. Push up the prices for these credits. At the farmers are generating and then in turn produce more income for the farmers jacob. What do environmental activists say about offering credits for carbon capture. Well broadly speaking to the environmental community supports the basic idea. Here that if you manage farm in a more environmentally or climate-friendly way they can have an impact on carbon in the atmosphere and the way that these things are structured. They've got some questions. Some reservations One just in some sense being a philosophical one that if you are offering are making available to a polluting company a carbon offsets that reduces the the environmental groups fear that reduces the incentive for that polluting company to clean up its own operations can continue to function as it has been And pay farmers on the other side. And how does the incoming biden administration intend to approach these sorts of programs. Well tom vilsek. Who was an advisor to the biden campaign and now has been picked to potentially head the usda again. He led the the us department of agriculture during president obama's terms he's talked about putting federal. Usda conservation program funding behind this idea effectively using some conservation programs to incentivize farmers in the same way so the biden administration plans to to put the the federal emphasis behind this same exact idea

Halo Infinite development troubles caused by heavy outsourcing?

"Important updates on the halo infinite delay an investigative report from Thurrott, which is be a strange source because I think it's a tech podcast. As far as I understand. But this report delves into what they call a quote. Development Cycle for Halo in infants goes into a number of factors that have contributed to the games rocky development and now delay. So one major factor apparently in infants delay Simpson the fact that a significant portion of the game is being outsourced to third party contractors and this isn't unusual especially with AAA Games. But the report suggests that the level of outsourcing for Halo Infinite was unusually high and the coordination between the many different companies contributing to infinite has been rough at best does this. xboxes whole problem all along this generation has been getting. Strong exclusives and it's it's been buying up studios. Got The coalition now. Buying up studio so that they can actually own these developers making these games. So does this prize you that they would be leaning so much on outsourcing the biggest of their big big big triple A. Exclusives. They're thinking. I mean there's a difference between what because as you mentioned and as article mentions, outsourcing is not an like a non industry standard I didn't industry standard. So no, that's not surprising. I think the specific station that it was abnormal was also kind of inherently tied to the TV show comments which were afterwards debunked. So it seems like there there's something going on there where we don't exactly have like the right picture perhaps the author didn't have the proper picture to really make that assessment. That what's going on is is like an abnormal level of outsourcing and that that's the core of their problems. Yeah I. Think part of the reason there's little hesitation before we answered is because you know large chunks of every triple game are outsourced you know including a lot of uncharted comes to mind for me like a lot of those are assets were outsourced outside of Naughty dog and like. So, it's hard to say did halo infant even more Happening within three or four, three, the Matt, or was it just sort of standard like well, look to make any big gigantic triple a game like you know have to have contractors third parties pitching in on providing our assets and level design assets. I know how you know what I g makes is a lot less complicated than a big play video game and obviously it through us for figuring out how to continue even operating our business. So I feel for AAA deficit had to sort of reinvent their their workflows on the fly like this. It's weird important to notice that like out sort like we technically outsource we have freelancers that counts outsourcing right but like it's still has it still goes through all of the avenues that it needs to make sure that it's the voice that it's been edited by staff members. So imagine there are like checks and balances in terms of like you don't have you're not necessarily outsourcing core elements in a way that would be detracting from the overall vision or direction. Of whatever creative medium you're working on so it's it was just so insubstantial a comment. and honestly like the entirety of the article was just written in a strange way. I can't exactly say You know I'm I'm assuming for a lot of this stuff but when you're talking about your sourcing your pretty explicit with a warning that you use. so saying stuff like. A source familiar with the development plans, and then later multiple sources familiar with some other avenue. It felt to me like pieces of story that had been told over time congregating in one area without maybe those those elements of reporting actually speaking to each other in one direct cookie storyline. I think that the the the very nature of outsourcing is. Like it's just helpful if we know that when you say like I can break off pieces of this development and send it out like they know what they're doing. They're doing that right like what I would. The thing that I would expect is something like, Oh, one of our outsources. went out of business or something like that like that's like a disruption like just saying like, oh, they're using a bunch of resources to build a big game like that's not really a doesn't sound like a disruption to me. I don't really understand how it'd be handled that way, and then the fact that the other part of this is you're getting to was. Proclaimed as bogus and. Bogus I don't really think I I. Think, we know why Hilo is delayed I. Wasn't GonNa get to the TV show thing that that the part that was interesting to me? Was Interesting to me is. The fact that supposedly they're trailer that they showed at e three last year, they're big trailer was outsourced while the game was not playable yet, and the trailer looked so good. It's oversold expectations for. Hill Infants Gameplay Demo which we saw this year, and of course, there was a lot of mixed reaction to a lot of people were very unimpressed with visuals. That's the part that was really interesting to me. Okay. Well, you know. Getting. All like the idea of outsourcing a trailer is like the most common thing. There's entire studios that make game trailers four. That's that's the only thing they do is that people go to them and they make them really flashy trailer based on their their stuff. So. Companies that do that in particular and so. Like I WANNA know what elements of that outsourcing actually happening like are they creating their own character models and doing their own animations or are they taking assets which is more likely? Are they taking assets three or three, and then just cutting that into a specific way? It really depends on what elements of outsourcing. That's stories me read weirdly because it was lacking a lot of detail to really think about what was being told. So I still don't have a picture of what the reporter was attempting to. Kinda. Illustrate and then obviously some of the debunking it just kind of threw everything into question marks I. Mean it's definitely like. I've defended Halo Infinite on this show a week or two ago like an open world game running four K. Sixty S, and so you know and I'm a halo fan but like We are seeing more and more smoke that like things with infinite maybe you're not in a great place like whether this reporting is credible or good or not like the game was delayed Halo Five came out in Twenty fifteen and it was not you know three four three has had the franchise almost as long as Bungee had the franchise they can't even claim that they're still like coming to grips with like what it needs to make a halo game like they're good making Halo Games for a long long time, and yet this one is now six years in development I duNno, it's not great. I am excited for infinite and I really WANNA play it and want to get back to that style of fips and and that just appeals to me personally. But you know I I'm getting a little bit worried for the game I have to I have to confess.

Older Workers Grapple With Risk of Getting Covid-19 on the Job

"Around eighty percent of COVID, nineteen deaths in the US, are people sixty five, an older that same group represents seven percent of our overall workforce as businesses reopened. There's a special challenge for these workers and the companies where they work. And some older Americans had to keep working even through lockdowns. The Wall Street Journal's Jacob. Bungee is covering this and spoke to our Mark Stewart. Are Any professions or any careers more at risk well, we looked at a lot of the essential functions, the jobs that needed to keep getting done through the height of the pandemic here over the last couple of months, and in a number of these people over the age of sixty five made up a substantial portion of these professions, workers and look at. At something like transit bus drivers for example, the city mass transit system is about sixteen percent of bus. Drivers were sixty five and older and other professions like ambulance, drivers or personal care also had a fairly significant number of people this age, so these are frontline individuals. That's right. These are people that needed to show up to work in some cases. You know it's a range of experiences of these folks. Some of them need to keep doing their job to pay their bills. The pension systems broadly speaking of weakens over the last ten twenty years, and so there's increased need for some people keep working just to make ends meet as they get older ages, but there's also a fair number of people that just want to work and remain engaged in their job and feel like they have an obligation. If they can work to continue doing so, so you see a lot of that as well and these people, this age group, continuing to clock in even though the risk to them, contracting the corona virus on the job is fairly substantial.

How the Coronavirus Disrupted Food Supply Chains

How the Coronavirus Disrupted Food Supply Chains

"In recent weeks. The Corona virus pandemic has wreaked havoc on the nations food. Supply chains the working conditions in meat. Packing plants have led to the spread of the disease among employees forcing closures industry officials estimate about one quarter of the. Us pork processing. Industry is shut down this week. And ten percent for BEEF UNION REPS. Say At least twenty meat and food processing workers have died. Dudakovic's nineteen and the shutdowns were necessary to save lives today. President trump is expected to mandate through executive order that the nation's meat processing plants remain open. Invoking the Defense Production Act. It allows the president to control the production and distribution of critical products and supplies joining me now to bring us up to speed our agriculture reporter. Jacob Bungee so Jacob there have been some challenges in the farm sector supply chain. You've written about a few of them. Let's start with the pork industry which is now facing disruptions due to the pandemic. Can you explain what's going on? There starts with the meat plants and the spread of Cova nineteen through the workforce of these plants which oftentimes are working in close quarters sometimes shoulder to shoulder on processing lines. It's been a number of people getting sick at these plans. Some of the biggest density of Cova nineteen cases can be found in meat processing plants like Smithfield's pork plant in Sioux Falls. South Dakota for example and as workers get sick as there's more exposure and more positive cases with the workforce as of these plans. Of course people are having to stay home. That are sick. Other workers get frightened and are not coming into work. It's forced a lot of the plans to reduce production and it's also led to the closure of a number of plants and when you can't operate these plants the farmers that send hogs to them every single day to be slaughtered. Have to figure out what to do with those pigs on their farms. A lot of times. These pigs are at full size and are ready to be slaughtered but says there's no place to send them. The farmers have to figure out what to do on their farms to prevent overcrowding. And so they're looking right now at the prospect of having to euthanize thousands of these pigs just because they have nowhere to send them so when we talk about consumers and the meat supply generally. Should we be worried about shortages and prices? Going up for me. Walmart and Costco are trying to stay ahead of this. But generally speaking the supermarket chains are already planning on shortages. Some of them already are being shorted on what they're ordering from their suppliers in a lot of cases what consumers are going to see in their own stores in the meat. Sections will be a change in the sort of products that are there. You might see less of the meat that requires more processing work which is to say things like boneless products for example our products that are marinated or in some way have some additional processing done to them or additional seasoning. They're focusing on the plants where they can operate. They're focusing on the products that they can really turn out at a high volume with the least amount of staff necessary but there are going to be cases where there's just products not available. There's already that's already being seen in some stores around the country right. Now we've been hearing about supply chain challenges in the food industry for several weeks. Can you explain why it's so difficult to fix these problems? More quickly well the. Us Meat Industry is built on efficiency. And there's two channels primarily that they sell food into on the one hand you have the restaurants and the hotel chains and the big food service operations like stadiums for example and the meat companies will sell bulk meat to these sorts of customers a lot of times. It'll be packaged in giant boxes or crates. It'll be packaged with a whole bunch of Bacon Strips for example and it's not the same as taking the Bacon Strips and placing them into a lot of smaller sized packages for grocery stores for example. The production is set up to maximize efficiency. Like I said and so. They'll have entire plants that are devoted to grocery store products for example or or to restaurant products. They are trying to do. Some adjustments where for example in the chicken industry and some of the plants that are geared toward supplying restaurants there processing the chickens to a certain extent and then they can ship the carcasses or the pieces to plants that do the packaging for the retail stores and they can do a bit of adjustment to fulfill orders from the supermarkets that way but in other cases the packaging will be totally different. The product specifications will be totally different. There's other things like food. Safety standards that apply differently to these different sorts of products. And so they're trying to work their way through all of that right now but it's not as simple as just taking some bacon from a bulk package plopping it into a clear plastic bag to be sold in a grocery store. Are there any other ways that farmers are trying to adapt at this time for their own? Livelihoods well what you're seeing in some of these places that have really seen a drop off in business because the restaurants closing as people trying to get creative and sell and some cases directly to the consumers are close to that and what I mean is some chicken companies that have a good deal of their business tied up supplying things like wings and chicken tenders and so onto restaurants with that business. Being effectively stopped now in a lot of places. What you're seeing. Is these plants processing their chickens. And then boxing them up in a plane sort of box and offering to sell this to people directly in the parking lot of the plants or parking. Lots of churches seen a lot of this in the southern states where there are a lot of chicken production facilities and people are coming from all around to buy these They've had traffic jams. In some cases Wayne Farms reported people driving from one hundred miles away to come to their plant. Parking lot and buy bulk chicken in boxes. In this way there's been a lot of people a lot of jobs. Are People Lining up at foodbanks? This is another way to supply a low cost meal to people. And so you're seeing some of that. Some of these hog producers that are not able to send their hogs to the big processing plants like Smithfield for example or GPS and other big meat processor. That's had to close plants. What they're doing instead where they can is selling pigs to local butcher shops where they can be processed in a more local way and sold to people like that but the scale of stuff that can be done in that way is just nowhere near the level of processing that typically goes on at the really major meatpacking plants and and so it's only helping so much

COVID-19: women will be more affected, but play central role in the fight

"Tend to affect men and women differently on specialists in gender issues. Wanting the coverted nineteen corona virus may hit women in negative ways that have a more profound impact on families. Women make up the majority of caregivers at home and in our communities existing trends show they have less access to sexual and reproductive health and domestic violence rises during crises. But women have also the power to be change makers in the response agenda playing a central role in communicating with families and with communities. You A news and Shoe. Shama spoke to you and women's deputy country representative in India. Niece thaw such him Bush that in any disaster in any And to make the experience across the board women goes the most one group Because or at the margins locked scared response or nutrition accordingly Aniline circumstances there's been a disproportionate amount of on big A. K. Work that falls on Amex photos dresses of their abilities. So I think it wouldn't be an underestimate. Say that any impact of calm or of any pandemic it far more on women. Good in such circumstances you really get is also a very gordon. Lead to increase in violence against remained noting discrimination against Nagging Inc among unspoiled across the globe. And there's evidence From previous is to say that This is how things out so e just to establish that the impact on Adminis- File Creek and also gone far longer because they come into the recovery petition. I'd go much ASTA People were not at dodgers So I hope that answers your question. How long is it going to take? I think it's very difficult to say anything right now. Could different countries respond to different abilities of his born and I think in Europe being the diverse country that is already seeing some interstate variances in how the disease or the virus spreading to? I think it's very very soon exceed what will happen. How long will be all that can be said is going to be very very important as change maker in the Response Agenda? Judy because they do each of these decisions that whom they children. There's also a lot of woman appear to be a networking over the dentist phone. And therefore very very good change agent for passing on information acting upon it and also ensuring greater hygiene and briefly held standards the household and energy. Eventually do you think the problems of the urban working women are different from the urban and Rural Poor in discusses? The distinction between all of these categories I think over England of now as we see that the home is val become public speech right as you pretty cramped up into the same space and public speakers have been more deserted. I think commit safety security perspective. I think life has completely changed for oven. Working Women also from an unpaid can work now talking before this call but being back home even for each one of us has just met meant more demand on our own personal happens to provide for each other and care work after the kitchen so suddenly I think that God has gone most triple over the period of time and pick up into one space. I think it will also reduce the insecurity so I do think that. Any instance like this distinctly And differently of demand for urban or urban and working and then we'll and Reuben so We'll see some of that in the coming days. We're also seeing that a lot of actually the migrant communities badly affected by the lockdown and many of them women so a house do you and women working with other agencies to help these women in the crisis your guide I think Migrant migrant women domestic workers wage worker walk. The frontline have been most affected by something like this Partially because of lack of information or the information digs down control to them Also the fact that is I mean this. Also kind of takes away that economic franchise and that they had and also because the job displacement because opinions on not going to two million or even home circumstances that's it I think on marginalized groups are more vulnerable to be impacted by crisis like this. Not Just my community You and movement is working for donating the Union's response from agenda perspective along leadership with the CEO of your Unisex so we're now looking at a three big areas of work.

Which is their job. They gyrate according to George Perks. Bespoke investment group. He says it can go like this. When investors sell and expect the worst a little ray of hope can change everything if every piece of news is bad for awhile. Expectations come down and so now that expectations are down. It doesn't take much good news for everything flip in reverse often. It's consumer stocks doing the Bungee up and down.

Bungee was a part of Microsoft, then they split for Microsoft did their own thing. Then they got they kind of partnered with activision. Well, the big news is they have split from activision, and they are going to be developing the destiny series on their own and many people are very happy about that. A really? Yeah. So what does that mean for the destiny series that just means that now it's heavily read them more freedom completely in the hands of bungee? You know, the actual developer the people who have the whole visual as the here's the thing. A lot of people don't understand this. And I guess maybe I don't really quite send a to what is the actual role. All of the publisher. So you've got the developer. You got the developer who actually makes the game. Right. The publishers are the big guys like EA activision Ubisoft rate, Microsoft, Sony, the publishers, what does the publisher do are? They simply just financing the developer. They're getting a games out there doing the marketing. You know, they're they're deciding what to include in the they may have editorial rights when it comes to the game. Think about think about a book publisher, you write a book and say your publisher is. I'm trying to think of the mouse Random House or any of the big published to they're out there. They will publish it. And they will go ahead and get that book out get it to as many store pain for their their financing it. Yes. But they're taking a bigger cut of the money. Yes. Sure. Yeah. So you know, that's part of the deal you developer sugar. Daddy. Yeah. We're gonna we're. Yeah. Exactly. We're going to deliver this game to you. And you write a check, and we'll pay all the programmers all the coders all of that stuff. And here it is. Here's our final game. So that's the role of the publisher when it comes to gaming. Okay. Put. Here's the thing. It seems like more and more often. Now, we hear all the bad stuff about the publishers. We hear all these times where EA EA sucks EA's as destroyed. This game EA is done. This not so much with activision or blizzard or whatever we'll activation is blizzard now really, but mostly it's like EA. And I think what it is.
