We’re all going out of town next week at the following link.
To start with, we’re running a replay next week. I’m going out to San Antonio for PAX South with the other two are headed to a comic convention. The dates kind of worked out pretty well in that regard. Anyway…on with the show.
We’re still looking at Nintendo and trying to figure out where the value is – for us. We can possibly see it for some if the games are there but they aren’t really providing them. Not now anyway. They might be there by the time the system drops about fifty bucks and becomes a $250 console (or less), but with all costs involved you’re looking at a $350 – $380 dollar system. At the low end, it’s $50 less than a PS4 Pro and $50 to $100 more than an Xbox One S or PS4…Non-pro or whatever. And most of those systems come with packed in games at the moment. I don’t think Nintendo has failed. They just aren’t in a position right now to get my money. A lower price would help, sure, but more games are needed for me to buy into this thing and we likely won’t see anything like that until E3 – and even then those will likely be released for next year. It’s very much a wait and see sort of thing, at least for me.
What isn’t wait and see right now is VR – Matt is currently getting his first experience with PSVR and so far it seems to be blowing his mind. We’ll get more out of him when we return on February 4th.
