On this episode: @chrinkster @oluwaponz @tudzdotexe @estrella8_

Hey everyone, before I could deemmy cars is back with another episode's talk about some gaming topics. On today'sepisode we've got Chris Play and hoods. Yeah, Yeo, so, andI am your host, a stell. So that's all cool. All theintroductions are done, and so let's get into the topics. We've got someupdates about psfive. So it's showcase will be taking place on the sixty ofSeptember, so it's going to be on a Wednesday and it's predicted to lastaround fourteen minutes, featuring updates on the latest titles from Worldwide Studios, andit will be broadcasted on twitch and Youtube. So have you guys watch out yourcalendar next week to like get up todate and what's going to happen?I'm going into it was zero expectations, to be honest. I know.I think they would answer price anyway. There's this going to do some moregame play shows. I don't think we'll talk about marks off. We're goingto get to them eventually. bought. So any have to do a lotto show what they're going to do offering, because Microsoft have been coming with bank, you can say, Banger off the bang with some of the thingsthey've been doing. So I'm honestee what the price is saying. Anyway,I think I reckon they're going to try and match similar prices to the xboxseries x, so they would think. So when you're going to take aloss, I think the digital psfy digital I don't think it's going to beas cheap as the xbox series. So I think it'll be. I thinkthey'll be a maybe about a hundred pound difference between the digital psfive and thenthe disc psfive. But yeah, we'll see what happens with disabled anyway.I'm not going in there with high expectations. I'm just going to see. Justgoing there to see what's going to happen anyway. So, yeah,the price is what I'm interested in at this point. Yeah, just needto know. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I need to put something away forholiday season or copy later. And just on that point, one layers. I don't any reasons why you don't have high expectations. It's all fromthee all through the process. Right now they're showing the different different games thatsearch for the PSFIVE. Nothing's really blown me away like the game showcase.I've seen a few games that I like, like the spider man, Mars,Morellas harm even a much more games I'm really interested in right now.PS PS exclusive, but nothing it's really impressed me really from what they shouldso far. That's why I'm I'm not really looking, I'm not really havinghigh expectations, but I just wanted the price as yeah, one of theprice, because I'm thinking it will be like I think it would be thesimilar price to the xbook series are because I think I'll try and sell itat four hundred and forty nine. That's why I record anyway UK, UKpounds. Anyway, starling four hundred and forty nine. I think it'll befull for nine as well, the same price as the xbox series X.I don't think they want to be selling much harder than marks are sending theirconsole for. So I'm going for that round, that price pin anyway.We'll see that. And for for nine, as the price point, guys liketalks Chriss, that a decent price point. It was a too highkind of you guys are like more folks for my price right now. Yeah, I think for me it's just about remaining competitive. Four for nine isprobably what I'm acceptable with spending on a console without any extras or add on's. Yeah, that's probably probably going to be my limit. But I feellike playstation has to be competitive with their prices, especially with the more expensivemodel. If I if I'm hearing the more expensive models going to be likewhat, six hundred? Automatically lost interest in that. Yeah, I think. I mean. I say all this, but to be honest, I justlike spending money. I just like...

...to shop. Coming out on theperside that's making me go, yeah, they want up there isn't really Icould probably wait much longer to get the PS five. To be honest,I probably get a launch. To be honest, I did, it appearsfor one of myself. I'll probably get the pitch psfire launch as well.But I see I'm going to much six suctations for this showcase, but Iknow I'm probably going to get APPS five at launch. But yeah, we'llsee what happens. Anyway. They need to keep competitive anyway, because Microsoftis always on the cut their prices regardless anyway. So mikes have played theircards not so has to pay their prices now. Early this week funimation madean announcement in regard to their new partnership with vision media, which would involvewell, their partnership would essentially bring more an amazing fundimations catalog. So I'mjust going to just read just a bit of a snippet from the article.So funimation out to distribution partnership with the iconic vis media, including plans tobring an expansive catalog of legendary anime titles to the funimation streaming service. Sosome of the animes that belisted that I'm going to be brought to funimation areterror, formerst Megala box and Gargantia on the Verdreus Planet, which I wantto haven't heard of. Yeah, and compellion, which came out to usthirteen. So I don't know how many other titles they're going to bring,but it seems like a good sign and if it brings more animes that catalogthan it allow, it will allow more people to sex as more series andwatching their streaming service. I think the more access to animate the better.If we can give people more avenues to watch anime, especially in this country, it's was going to be beneficial. Sometimes you can get because I feellike most people only only anime fans really get crunchy. Role for then needsto be some sort of sho in order to get people to watch anime inin other mediums, and then that would help in terms of general popularity.Yeah, definitely. I also think another thing of this partnership was all justmakes me think about whether they're going to increase the costs at the subscription costof this. But they really have an announced the whole entire anime cuts goingto be added to this. So I think it's one of the things wherewe have to wait and see once they share more information around this new partnership. I didn't see anything other than just the news of the manager, tobe honest. I think that's why I'm a bit has said to be reallyexcited that in the fact that I did and I think actually used funimation servicebefore, it's just been crunchieral yes, I think we need to get meanto know what it means. Aside thing that day needs. Okay, moreanemies coming to funimation service. Yeah, yeah, one of the things Idid state in the articles that they have slowly been adding more anime classics ontofunimation of a Past Cup and couple of months, some of which include theoriginal Naruta series, seventy five, the first seventy five per sorry, seventyfive episodes of hunter x hunter and as well as some Salem Moon movies.So they've been gradually adding to and funimations cut salog, but I think it'sany recently then make a bit more official, making more fishers regards to the partnershipthat they're going to have this media. The XBOX S and x consoles willbe some of the first game and consoles that will be used with thedolby vision and they'll be at most entertainment systems. Sorry that they'll be atmost. Thing is like meant to enhance like the sound quality of the gameconsoles and the vision. They'll be vision doing the same for gaming visuals.So I know something. You guys in a little bit about it and willbe great to kind of get your thoughts whether it's all be of any benefitsxbox consoles. Yeah, they'll be stance they tend to do. You're seeingthe films and you which in cinemas are using though bee technology for the oldaudio experience. So it's probably just did...

...enhance maybe the experience with you ordoing your playing games, but then I'm assuming there's a well, you mayhave to have systems at home, like maybe I'm sound systems, of probablyto get immersed in the audios of the Games you play. But I think, Y're they're trying to give the whole public experience of gaming. Nothing exboxnow. So yeah, it's interesting anyway. Yeah, I mean I don't reallyknow too much about it and from what I do know it's quite abig difference to the sound quality. I know there's a couple mobile phones Ihave it. I think one of them, one of the new galaxy phones,has it. But yees, actually it's gonna it's going to be aI mean they can only be beneficial. I do I do sometimes see thatgame sound can be a bit weird with certain games I've experienced in the past. But my only thing is and what peripherals are going to be compatible,because is, for example, I know a lot of us play with headphonesor headsets and I'm sure those headsets would need to be they will be atmostcompatible, I think. I'm not sure. I'm not sure whether it's I'm notsure whether the technology is on the system side or if it's on theTV side. whichever. But hopefully we will get more carry on that bynext week. And you thoughts from mutuds, I mean thinking and in Games andall this. Other guys they me, I'm just SCAP vibes like it's myson. Just vibe literally. I don't think about that kind of thingin gaming. But I mean if you guys say it sounds if you guysthink it's like a good thing, then yes, it's good. I justguys trust an experts. Yeah, so I know you briefly touched on thisone lay earlier, just in regard to the pricing of the pus five.It was PSI, wasn't it? Yeah, it would pus five. So aswe are expecting someone used commenced to come out around the XBOX s series. What are your you guys with thoughts around the pricing of the S andthe x? Yes, I think that's on them. I think this isa Quali price, that she's only two hundred and fifty. That's cheaper thana week, than the slip story. That's toe and then tend the switchthat's supposed to be. Yeah, I'm so shot by that. And thisis supposed to be next GEN console. Is Only fifty my I've been sayingthat. I think that's going to sell loads in the Christmas period, theholiday season, because, especially with how covid has done, a lot ofpeople, you know, Struck with maybe struggling financial etc. Yeah, Ithink that to d fifty percents amazing and so off. Can see that sellingquite well. Yeah, and they are doing as well their xbook school access. They're doing a payment plan as well for both the series s and X. sopefully x you get the series x and or access pass, which is, you know, you get the march of game passes on included ultimate.It comes up, I think's two eight ninety nine a month over twenty fourmonths. I was talking of things with a couple with about it. Thatactually works out. If you do things often, do that payment plan insteadof buying xbox out Ryan and he's keep paying all any pay for the gamepass ultimate over two years span, you'd actually be it will be cheaper totake do the payment plan then buying out right and just paying for game passover the two years, which is quite mad. I realized things like maybetwenty three quick cheaper. Is the same with the S as well. ButI think, yeah, they're really trying to push these consoles out. Soeven if we have a board of Watch, I think the s on the paymentplans like twenty pounds ninety nine a month. I mean it's Shaven La. It's cheaper than that. Or maybe eighteen ninety nine. Yeah, thinkshe's eighteen ninety nine. Sorry, is...

...eighteen nineteen nine. Scratch that.Yeah, it still works. As I said, it works out doing thepayment plan over two years work out chieving them buying out right and keeping thegame post for two years, which is quite mad actually. But yeah,I think they've done something great with it. EXPLO series. This is may notbe as powerful as, you know, the x, but I think it'sstill one of how how you know you still have a good, greatexperience with it. It's only as well it is digital only and it's gotfive hundred and twelve people buy. It is hard drive, so you mostlikely will need the next sternal son sort because games are going to be probableecology will take up the whole memory. But I think person is like they'vedone. That's much up on something world. The series's gratefuod watching anyway as well. I've seen I've seen a lot of people complaining about how the seriess is going to bottle neck a lot of development with next GEN Games andhow it's going to greatly affect how how multi platform games are made, becauseobviously if the xbox series s there's a slightly weaker system and you're trying toget the best the best out of technology for, you know, the seriesx and the psfive, then it could really really affect the quality of theGames we get. But I'm not I'm not so sure, because I feellike we're still going to be developing cross cross generational for a little while.I feel like the PS PSFOUR's gone nowhere anytime soon, neither as the xboxone x. So we've at least got a couple of years in which theseries s is going to be a going to be viable. And then afterthat I feel like, for example, if they decided to push for nextgen only, so if they stopped developing from the PSFOUR and the sort andthey just wanted to push for the one x and the psfive, people alreadygoing to have an established backlog of games from playing the series essence, Imean for two hundred and forty nine. You can afford to upgrade that ina couple years. I don't think that's a big deal, in my opinion. Makes me wish I was like interested in the xbox at all because like, wow, that's a really good price. But I don't feel like I'm areason to even get the guns all. But I've never got in the nextbox. I've never had an xbox before, and there are any exclusivesI'm interested in? I'm letting sure I'd any like who's definitely getting it,by the way. I think I'm getting it. I'm gonna get I thinkI'll. I'll get it some way down the line. I'm not sure exactlywhen, but for like I'd probably get a somewhere downline I did. Whichones? Are you getting the sex or both? I make it we I'mnot sure. I'm really not sure yet. I think I want to see whatplaystation click the psfive has to offer first. Yeah, but most likelygetting the series s simply because it's what two hundred and for nine. Can'twe go wrong for that prices like you guys are. Is that influencing yourdecision at all? There's not. Really. I was that make me want toget it now. So that's the thing. So I will want toget it because I like the game pass. Is just a great offer they've givenfor it. I think the mild games, the Games like you givengames pass. They do offer EAP. I don't really care about ear play, but that is a point of some people. I do care about it, but it's just mainly that thing, the game pass offering. It isquite entice and for me so and rather don't know, I call a lotof upority to Sony like that. I'm probably gonna get it, don't youdon't do only games company. I have molities to his Nintendo. So howmany first party Sony titles have you played...

...this generation? Way, that's notmany, I think. I'm trying to think kill zone. You probably becausethat came with when I got the PSFITE launch. Got Of war, spiderman, and I don't think. Yeah, I can't really think. I'm notreally played many of the First Party and the PSFOUR came out in twothousand and thirteen, thirteen, twenty fourteen, and the twenty four was like November, twenty four, November. Yeah, I was yeah, yeah, yeah, it was seen. I I've even still got on my instance poston my first cup of Piers Four. I'm PSFOUR. It was two thousandand thirteen. Yeah, I remember. The must have been actually, yeah, I remember it was doing the week. It was a week after the xbox. It was late. It was like November. Yeah, it wasNovember. was a week after the explox one came out. Yeah, soin all that time, that's what I'm that's pushing seven years. I'm notreally played men. Yeah, three first party towels, and that just goesto show like first part Touls for Sony Games for the most part, andI found this would be a sim a trend for the majority. Not Noteveryone, but people don't play as many first party titles on playstation as theythink they do, especially compared to that Nintendo. Many first fight in tetowels. Almost all my Nintendo titles our first last party. That's the thingexactly. Then in tender looking for the first party. Definitely. Yeah,you know me, I'm buying intend of his first bite titles. So yeah, and I saw, I feel like the main decisions and something that actuallymaybe get a pusfour after ready after had ready bought a nextplus one is thefact that the player base is mostly on Psfour. The most of my friendsare on PSFOUR. There's a generally and a lot more people, especially inthis country, on the PSFOUR in comparisons the xbox one, and so obviouslyyou're going to go where the majority of people are. It just makes iteasy and so I feel like that's the main thing with the psfive and that'sthe main attribute the psfive has over the xbox. I'm series X in thisconsole generation. Yeah, I think yeah, because it's you feel a lot ofmost a lot of us had the PSFOUR. It did help at thewell, disconsolt generation last one at the time was because that was maxist longhold, for own fault as well. They didn't help themselves with the wholehavings have connects built in the price point of the experts one of the time. And then Sony came in having there's eighty pounds cheaper. That just yeah, that did leads a lot of people get PSFOUR. I did. Ihad an export one for a bit but I didn't reply much and the lastthe other storemost the time of PSFOUR. So yeah, so it marks ofreally going to try and get people, you know, back over on totheir side. So they've been really aggressive it, but they've not really've donewell, I think, how they've gone around anyway about it this time,just so you need to be careful. I think people will still buy thepsfive because, you know, people custom somewhat Sony. So we will see, but we will properly do a more bigger discussion of this we gets afterwe see what they should I'm certainly showcase on Wednesday and then compare and juston that point around, comparing the prices between the stony consoles and the Microsoftones. What are you guys thoughts on, you know, lower the lowering ofthe price of consoles, for instance, that you have the xpots which isgoing to cost two hundred and forty nine, like the only you guysthink that may in some way lower the value of Microsoft consoles because it's cheaper? Oh, I'm not sure if you know in the game of war,if it works in the same way as maybe other products, but you know, seeing the fact that it is going...

...to be cheaper, even though itwill be accessible to people, does that in some way lower the value ofMicrosoft gaming products? I don't know. I wouldn't say it low as thevalue because probably just because what they want to put in the box anyway.I know it maybe is still going to be the cheaper version to the seriesx, but I think they what they offer still as because it's as nextGen. it's just affordability. I still think it's going to be as in, like, I'm trying to think how the world, because it would bequite competitive there. It's got a lot of wealth lergy. That is fornext Gen. it's still going to be equal. Still up skill games tofor K. I think it's more. It would be. It's more powerfulon the a xbox one X and yeah, a lot cheaper and it was.Well, I still think it's not going to be a lot of value. Well, value. Still get a lot for the money and then we'llsee what happens. Well, when you go through, as we go throughthis console, generations, you happens. But yeah, I don't say it'sjust because it's sold at that pricess lower it means it's less in value.Yeah, I think. I think in in terms of this argument between thetwo consoles, it's very important to remember that most of us still got massiveback locks. Some people in particular, some some more than love this.It's sorry. Basically, what it is just quickly. It's called determined thatChris was the incomputers being COMPEC. I didn't see it, so it doesn'taffect Oh yeah, he didn't. We saw it. We saw it,so it exists. I decided. I vote. It turns, by theway, for yourself and I'll feels are votes, so I'm fine. Ithink it's really important to realize that at the end of the day, wefind these consoles for games. Is Very, very easy to get sucked into thewhole consumerism and the hip to make us buy these consoles without much sortthought behind it. Because, for example, you buy a peers five, now, what games are you going to buy for it? What Games haveyou got in your head you want to buy for this console? That's MilesMorales. That's really at the moment. That's the thing. I don't think. I can't really think of the Games yet because nothing the Games of theshowcase. I've not really been interested in many of them. I can't lieto you switch. I bought that launch only because before the road doesn't launchtitle. Or that was me as well as I don't say again, butfor me, yeah, for me that was like a really big thing andbreath of the world. I feel like I'm saying it was the game thatI'd been looking forward to for a very long time and so that justified theconsole for me personally. Yeah, anything else, anything else, was abonus. But in terms of playstation five in the xbox series, x,I don't really have anything that I'm really really eager to play. Nothing.Nothing, I'm majorly eager to play. There's a lot of single play againsteyes and finish on existing consoles and it it kind of makes me think,is there a point of me really getting this console, even with such alimited release schedule? But I guess again, we'll see on Wednesday. Will what'sonly have to say if they give us updates on new titles, ifthey give us more pricing information, which I mean they have to do atthis point. I think the hope, the whole reason it's been late isbecause they've been waiting on Microsoft to come about there working on Microsoft. Microsoft. That have played it quite smartly. I mean they dropped it on onthe twenty five anniversary of the playstation. It's true. It's quite a swattactical decision to kind of overshadow Sony's achievements...

...and let's not forget, as whatthey actually did well as well, because it was leaked as well. Withtheir S. Yeah, yeah, they they did well with the PR withthat actually absolutely well, and I played it. Did play really well becausethe way they did it. You saw the the they did that was it, that poppet, that monkey popping in origin the next year. This isa muscle that the back out. I think they'd. Yeah, I thinkthey responded both that leak. So and then they've gathered steam with that.Yeah, going the forward. So they really did convert to a good thingfor them. And now, like I said, the walls and Sony schoolhardly feels like son he's been quiet, maybe because, I mean again,we didn't ever want to get our hopes up for any like showcase or presentationor direct ever. But a part of me is thinking maybe they've been disquietbecause they just have something up their sleeve, or maybe they just believe that thePS five speaks for itself and they did need to. I don't knowhow. I was taking to a speaking to that pun lay a couple daysago about this and I don't see personally what they could release or what contentlycould put out apart from a reduced price. That would really really impress me.There's nothing really. I know the console's powerful, but power in itselfis nothing to me. Means nothing same. So they don't have they don't havethat kind of nostalgia aspect that Nintendo have. When Nintendo could, youknow, build a massive, massive hype train by putting out maybe F zero, or I mean mother three, mother three, mother three remake or somethingbig, you know, instead of I've got an abundance of titles that theycould put out to generate right and based off nostalgia a lot of the time. But with Sony I don't think you can do that. You can't reallyput out new IPS to really really hype people up because, as we know, most of the Times, most of the time new IP, a newIP, fails to meet up to expectation. So for me it's got to bethe price, it's got to be information on, you know, backwardscompatibility, it's got to be stuff that really affects gamers on a day today essentially, like price aside, like, if we want to like really useour imaginations, what games could be announced that could just make you acompete one hundred and eighty or what you just say, O Galaxy on paystationfor that imaginative. But okay, I understand. I'll be honest, Ihave no idea. Most of the thing with a lot of playstation titles,it's quite interesting to know, is that they they were very much a productof their time. Games like API escape, Games like borders, Games like yeah, why, how the reward? Yeah, those those kind of titles. Even if you were met, even if you were going to remake themtoday, they're not going to build generate as much hype as they as theyprobably deserve, even like, for example, look at the it's not first wipedout, but look at the end Prince of Persian remake. It's justgetting insulated online because of the lack of quality. Oh yeah, see,people are saying, Oh, just so time to fix this. Guy's ahack. Yeah, it's like they're really going what people people forgetting that wasthe art, art style at the time. Yeah, just doesn't trans well,translate well over till to today's technology. You have to pretty much remake thewhole game completely from scratch, with...

...new animation, new character models,all sorts, because it just doesn't hold up today, whereas, for example, if you like, for example, the newly marry galaxy and that's goingto come out with the anniversary faith for anniversary collection. People excited for thatbecause it holds up well. We're not only today's Today's gaming, but italso holds up because of the art. The Art Style is allows it tohold up. Same thing with games like wind waker. Yeah, yes,yeah, yeah, when Waker did hold up well over the years. That'sthe sciaded graphics. Yeah, as I that its hold up well. Soeven games like street fighter to yes, some look up because we've got thefuttier we had that thirty if anniversary dish. They came on the switch. Yeah, yeah, still look quite well. Yeah, it real depends on thegames, for some games do not age well, some do. Ithink that's the reason why I like I could care less about like super higherrealistic graphiction games, because they're impressive now, but give it five years. Anyonebe a such advanced so quickly year by year that it's very good befor things to stop being so impressive. I guarantee breath for the world tohold up, I think, in the years to come as well. Ilike it's very like ye stick because, yeah, where most people found thata twilight princess is one of my favorite games and it's probably, I've saidthis is probably my top three Zo the Games. To be honest. Probablyit's something the oar direction doesn't hold up nearly as well as B to thewild or wind laker or even an into the past. Yeah, yeah,because I think the more realistic that approach. They went with it for the barkertones. Yeah, it was. It's why. It's why when you lookat a lot of D Games on the playstation and the Nixy for it,don't hold up well at all. Yeah, the art just looks horrific and peoplejust don't like them visually. It's very, very few games that reallyhold up from that era. Yeah, I'll see a lot of a lotof playstation games actually especially. Yeah, thinking about the demon souls we make. That was announced and how like isn't there'sn't obvious improvement in the graphic prathicalquality. It's a lot more realistic, but a lot of the fans wereeven seem like it's lost a bit of the character because the original was alot more stylized and it's just like okay, it's it looks really great now.But yeah, thinking we've been saying and make ten years, I don'tthink it's going to hold up. Yeah, even with regards that going back toplay games, Retro Games, you only have to don't you don't evenneed to look at far people. How many people do you see that goback to play ps one games in comparison to Super Nintendo Games, maze?It's like they are think, because I bet I don't think I ever seeanyone really go back to Pierce One's if you do like the yeah, toall superintendo were cool. Pee. I see people play Superintendo Games a lotof time. It's this mini did gets. It's yes, Oh, okays.So that's a great example. there. You made a great example, becausethat's there's yeah, there, there's many did so well. But whenthe Pierce Classic mini game, it didn't do well. You're enough those.Those a lot of missing games, but it just did not do well atother games on that on that console, when impressive. Yeah, I feelit. As you said, it was as they look so dated. Not, but I think I was the issue. There was as well. Yeah,and it makes you think like did these guys really think that far aheadin terms of the muscle of I really just saw how Nintendo did both feelinglike the neres mini. Then they did the snares and they thought maybe theycould do that. Yes, they fould...

...emulate, but I think it justit just hits to that the nature of the industry. Even now, Ididn't think some companies are thinking that way in terms of that future proofing theirgames in that regard, because it's just like, oh me to bring outlike a new game has to look really good, and that's just the natureof the industry. I think that's what sets nintend your apart from other companies, because just preserving the first party games and being pole going to you canimback the need to impressed people in that way. Yeah, I guess untilWednesday will get an update on the station starts or whether they want to beserious. Yeah, they just or whether they just want to play games.They get it, you're thought. Yeah, but we'll see. I mean thepricing is definitely something that's going to be it's going to have to berebuilt. I mean the xbox is out in Novembers, two months away,and as the needs and people with saving for a pierce hes fire for likeyear and a half. Yeah, the idea someone's or how much was exactlyno idea. How is actually going to cost. Yeah, I don't seeany other way. They cannot come out of the price because they'll be nothing'llbe mad not to come out the price on Wednesday. To be honest,I don't see. I was reading, you know, when they put theshowcase. I was reading a little a little arcle. They are just sayingabout game showcase. They wouldn't mention that they on that, that they saidhe'll bring out the price, but they should. They will have to bringout the price because, like I said, michaels played their how did they don'tyet? I feel be a bad mistake of it, and I was. It would be embarrassing. It would be embarrassing. Very good if wedon't see the place they should start off the price. It's tip and it'sit's so crazy because traditionally Microsoft are so bad with Pr yes, see,yes, they're never get their conferences are usually really bad, really bad,but it's a very, very it's very, very nice and refreshing to see howthey've kind of become more in tuned with today's Gamers. They know whatwe want and they're given us what we want. They know that people wantbackwards compactibility. Believe they're doing that. They do even want good prices andthey know people want an abundance of games, of different games to play. AndFair enough, they don't have the first party files like excitles. Yeah, like Sony D and that's partly because they don't have the history in gaminglike Sony and Microsoft and even say good dudes. But what they're trying todo, we know they've done, is bought a lot of small studios inorder to develop new first party titles, and it will be interesting to see, interesting to see over the coming years what becomes of that. Yeah,I mean as well, they still got the stuff in a like they gota smart delivery, so you can, you know, have the other Gamerredon't exx one, x cloud, xcloud. Year they've they're really trying to dofor the future of gaming. So and well, I'm I was theother thing I was even going to mention was we know that Microsoft and Nintendohave a good relationship. Yes, they do. Actually like it wouldn't beout of the realms of possibility to see a service like x cloud on theswitch. HMM, which would die crazy cells for both consoles, both boththe switch and and for the xbox series x and serieses. So it wouldbe really interesting to see if their partnership goes to that extent. Yeah,they'll be interested. Off Topic as well, switch offing is sold over sixty onemillion munits now, by the way, not surprise nor so. Yeah,probably would have sold a little bit more if it were he if ithadn't been for the shortages during covid oh, yes, yeah, yeah, yeah, true, very true. Definitely, because always saying I've looked everywhere andI can't find yeah, true. Yeah, yeah, not even tofind enjoyed like those joy conference all search an every single side of mine.I just gave up. Yeah, it was stressful control before I didn't.Yes, so expensive, but I like...

...that for so, yeah, gettingtoo boys. We won heay those ness as well. We're going to switchthat. I think they made. I was reading reports at about a newmodel as well. Yeah, I heard that, but I probably want totry and make him nothing up skames for k maybe I don't. Yeah,yeah, I've been seeing that. So would be interesting to dude. Butyeah, I don't think they need to. I don't know. I don't needto personally even, to be honest, off in the fight they got theirNintendo. You know, they're right. They're not come. I don't wouldn'tsay they compete in you know, directly if something marks of what theythey don't need to go that way of power anywhere. You know, theyjust keep concerning the folly of their games and I'm fine when they do.And and I'll be honest, I'll be honest, I can probably count onzero hands how many times I've played on my switch on my TV screen thisyear. Really, I paid docts like eight percent of the time I paid. I paid on pay on docked. Almost, not almost all the time. They are really I think that's mass people. To be fair, Iprimarily play my switch and doct and that's actually better to do, because Iactually read a few reports which said that if you play your on the switchdot then it causes it to overheat even faster, and that's when the problemsI've been having my switch is why it played doctor anymore. And I believethem. Yeah, it couse got coins. Yeah, yeah, Hey, Imean never. Naturally, I did find, though, it depended onthe title se like titles like Zelda. I had to play dot. HadTo. I had to play a game like Super Mario Odyssey as well.I don't yet I played that. I play that dot. I hope Iwas. The bigger titles, some more visually impressive ones. I tend toplay dot because of obviously the slightly better frame rate, slightly beer smash afterthey bought. Oh yeah, that's that's that's the only game that I hundredpercent. I have to play doctor. Yeah, the main reason is because, like my set up, everything's all together, like is where I work, it's why I watch Netflix, is why play my game. So Ijust it's just laziness. But really, in the majority of the Games I'mplaying at the moment, they could be played on dogs like Spittune. Youcan put yeah, I can't. I can't actually play that doctor. I'msorry, playing it on docked. I just don't know how to play doctor. I used to play on Dr play both my joy coins started packing up. I feel I can play both the tune dots and UNDOX. I'll upa play Bo a log Gi up aft up for plane dots. But yeah, I just love the octor. Anyway. Nintendo, keep innovating. Monkey keepingus so done. We talking about Xbox to keep wed.
