Our train of thought derails quite often at the following link.
I have a lot more in my head about The Last Guardian than was said on the show. Mainly because I finished the game the night after we finished this episode. I want to talk about that and I think I will, but probably on next week’s show.
For this week’s episode we talk about Microsoft’s new console, Project Scorpio. It wasn’t really revealed this past week but the guts of what’s inside of it were. So we have an idea on the power of this thing. That’s all well and good and at least lets us know that Microsoft wasn’t just spouting specs at E3 last year – they are actually backing up the claims. Now…show us the games. That’s usually our go to line when it comes to new consoles, but…we’re in a bit of a boat like the PS4 Pro, sort of. You can’t adequately show 4K gaming footage. It’s like 3D – it needs to be seen to be believed. Also, given their determination of EVERYTHING released for the new console will be able to be played on the old consoles (the One and One S), it doesn’t really lend itself to people going out and spending money on the most expensive machine on the shelf at the time. It may be a Microsoft exclusive game, but you’ll have options on what machine you can play that game on. DO NOT misunderstand – we’re fine with that idea. Sony is doing it with the PS4 Pro and Nintendo did it for their most wanted game of the past few years. It’s good when companies don’t alienate, but then, how do you ever drive sales of a new console when you’re old ones will get the job done just fine (with a little less shine)?
Keep in mind the guy saying all this bought a Nintendo Switch.
