ABOUT THIS EPISODE

After Microsoft announced that a series of new Xbox consoles will be available and with Sony's showcase event coming soon, the 4 Eyes Academia pod talk pricing, expectations and thoughts about the newest consoles which will soon be introduced to the gaming world.

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

Hey everyone, before I could deem my cars is back with another episode's talk about some gaming topics. On today's episode we've got Chris Play and hoods. Yeah, Yeo, so, and I am your host, a stell. So that's all cool. All the introductions are done, and so let's get into the topics. We've got some updates about psfive. So it's showcase will be taking place on the sixty of September, so it's going to be on a Wednesday and it's predicted to last around fourteen minutes, featuring updates on the latest titles from Worldwide Studios, and it will be broadcasted on twitch and Youtube. So have you guys watch out your calendar 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 more game play shows. I don't think we'll talk about marks off. We're going to get to them eventually. bought. So any have to do a lot to 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 things they'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 xbox series x, so they would think. So when you're going to take a loss, I think the digital psfy digital I don't think it's going to be as cheap as the xbox series. So I think it'll be. I think they'll be a maybe about a hundred pound difference between the digital psfive and then the 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. Just going there to see what's going to happen anyway. So, yeah, the price is what I'm interested in at this point. Yeah, just need to know. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I need to put something away for holiday 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 from thee all through the process. Right now they're showing the different different games that search 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 should so far. That's why I'm I'm not really looking, I'm not really having high expectations, but I just wanted the price as yeah, one of the price, because I'm thinking it will be like I think it would be the similar price to the xbook series are because I think I'll try and sell it at four hundred and forty nine. That's why I record anyway UK, UK pounds. Anyway, starling four hundred and forty nine. I think it'll be full 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 their console 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 like talks Chriss, that a decent price point. It was a too high kind 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 is probably 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 feel like playstation has to be competitive with their prices, especially with the more expensive model. If I if I'm hearing the more expensive models going to be like what, six hundred? Automatically lost interest in that. Yeah, I think. I mean. I say all this, but to be honest, I just like spending money. I just like...

...to shop. Coming out on the perside that's making me go, yeah, they want up there isn't really I could probably wait much longer to get the PS five. To be honest, I probably get a launch. To be honest, I did, it appears for 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 I know I'm probably going to get APPS five at launch. But yeah, we'll see what happens. Anyway. They need to keep competitive anyway, because Microsoft is always on the cut their prices regardless anyway. So mikes have played their cards not so has to pay their prices now. Early this week funimation made an announcement in regard to their new partnership with vision media, which would involve well, their partnership would essentially bring more an amazing fundimations catalog. So I'm just 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 to bring an expansive catalog of legendary anime titles to the funimation streaming service. So some of the animes that belisted that I'm going to be brought to funimation are terror, formerst Megala box and Gargantia on the Verdreus Planet, which I want to haven't heard of. Yeah, and compellion, which came out to us thirteen. 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 catalog than it allow, it will allow more people to sex as more series and watching 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 feel like most people only only anime fans really get crunchy. Role for then needs to be some sort of sho in order to get people to watch anime in in other mediums, and then that would help in terms of general popularity. Yeah, definitely. I also think another thing of this partnership was all just makes me think about whether they're going to increase the costs at the subscription cost of this. But they really have an announced the whole entire anime cuts going to be added to this. So I think it's one of the things where we 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, to be honest. I think that's why I'm a bit has said to be really excited that in the fact that I did and I think actually used funimation service before, it's just been crunchieral yes, I think we need to get mean to know what it means. Aside thing that day needs. Okay, more anemies coming to funimation service. Yeah, yeah, one of the things I did state in the articles that they have slowly been adding more anime classics onto funimation of a Past Cup and couple of months, some of which include the original Naruta series, seventy five, the first seventy five per sorry, seventy five 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's any recently then make a bit more official, making more fishers regards to the partnership that they're going to have this media. The XBOX S and x consoles will be some of the first game and consoles that will be used with the dolby vision and they'll be at most entertainment systems. Sorry that they'll be at most. Thing is like meant to enhance like the sound quality of the game consoles 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 will be great to kind of get your thoughts whether it's all be of any benefits xbox consoles. Yeah, they'll be stance they tend to do. You're seeing the films and you which in cinemas are using though bee technology for the old audio experience. So it's probably just did...

...enhance maybe the experience with you or doing your playing games, but then I'm assuming there's a well, you may have to have systems at home, like maybe I'm sound systems, of probably to 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 exbox now. So yeah, it's interesting anyway. Yeah, I mean I don't really know too much about it and from what I do know it's quite a big difference to the sound quality. I know there's a couple mobile phones I have 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 a I mean they can only be beneficial. I do I do sometimes see that game 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 headphones or headsets and I'm sure those headsets would need to be they will be atmost compatible, I think. I'm not sure. I'm not sure whether it's I'm not sure whether the technology is on the system side or if it's on the TV side. whichever. But hopefully we will get more carry on that by next week. And you thoughts from mutuds, I mean thinking and in Games and all this. Other guys they me, I'm just SCAP vibes like it's my son. Just vibe literally. I don't think about that kind of thing in gaming. But I mean if you guys say it sounds if you guys think it's like a good thing, then yes, it's good. I just guys trust an experts. Yeah, so I know you briefly touched on this one lay earlier, just in regard to the pricing of the pus five. It was PSI, wasn't it? Yeah, it would pus five. So as we 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 and the x? Yes, I think that's on them. I think this is a Quali price, that she's only two hundred and fifty. That's cheaper than a week, than the slip story. That's toe and then tend the switch that's supposed to be. Yeah, I'm so shot by that. And this is supposed to be next GEN console. Is Only fifty my I've been saying that. I think that's going to sell loads in the Christmas period, the holiday season, because, especially with how covid has done, a lot of people, you know, Struck with maybe struggling financial etc. Yeah, I think that to d fifty percents amazing and so off. Can see that selling quite 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 four months. I was talking of things with a couple with about it. That actually works out. If you do things often, do that payment plan instead of buying xbox out Ryan and he's keep paying all any pay for the game pass ultimate over two years span, you'd actually be it will be cheaper to take do the payment plan then buying out right and just paying for game pass over the two years, which is quite mad. I realized things like maybe twenty three quick cheaper. Is the same with the S as well. But I think, yeah, they're really trying to push these consoles out. So even if we have a board of Watch, I think the s on the payment plans like twenty pounds ninety nine a month. I mean it's Shaven La. It's cheaper than that. Or maybe eighteen ninety nine. Yeah, thinks he's eighteen ninety nine. Sorry, is...

...eighteen nineteen nine. Scratch that. Yeah, it still works. As I said, it works out doing the payment plan over two years work out chieving them buying out right and keeping the game 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 not be as powerful as, you know, the x, but I think it's still one of how how you know you still have a good, great experience with it. It's only as well it is digital only and it's got five hundred and twelve people buy. It is hard drive, so you most likely will need the next sternal son sort because games are going to be probable ecology will take up the whole memory. But I think person is like they've done. 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 series s is going to bottle neck a lot of development with next GEN Games and how it's going to greatly affect how how multi platform games are made, because obviously if the xbox series s there's a slightly weaker system and you're trying to get the best the best out of technology for, you know, the series x and the psfive, then it could really really affect the quality of the Games we get. But I'm not I'm not so sure, because I feel like 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 xbox one x. So we've at least got a couple of years in which the series s is going to be a going to be viable. And then after that I feel like, for example, if they decided to push for next gen only, so if they stopped developing from the PSFOUR and the sort and they just wanted to push for the one x and the psfive, people already going to have an established backlog of games from playing the series essence, I mean for two hundred and forty nine. You can afford to upgrade that in a 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 a reason to even get the guns all. But I've never got in the next box. I've never had an xbox before, and there are any exclusives I'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 think I'll. I'll get it some way down the line. I'm not sure exactly when, but for like I'd probably get a somewhere downline I did. Which ones? Are you getting the sex or both? I make it we I'm not sure. I'm really not sure yet. I think I want to see what playstation click the psfive has to offer first. Yeah, but most likely getting the series s simply because it's what two hundred and for nine. Can't we go wrong for that prices like you guys are. Is that influencing your decision at all? There's not. Really. I was that make me want to get it now. So that's the thing. So I will want to get it because I like the game pass. Is just a great offer they've given for it. I think the mild games, the Games like you given games 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 is quite entice and for me so and rather don't know, I call a lot of upority to Sony like that. I'm probably gonna get it, don't you don't do only games company. I have molities to his Nintendo. So how many first party Sony titles have you played...

...this generation? Way, that's not many, I think. I'm trying to think kill zone. You probably because that came with when I got the PSFITE launch. Got Of war, spider man, and I don't think. Yeah, I can't really think. I'm not really played many of the First Party and the PSFOUR came out in two thousand 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 post on my first cup of Piers Four. I'm PSFOUR. It was two thousand and 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 was November. was a week after the explox one came out. Yeah, so in all that time, that's what I'm that's pushing seven years. I'm not really played men. Yeah, three first party towels, and that just goes to show like first part Touls for Sony Games for the most part, and I found this would be a sim a trend for the majority. Not Not everyone, but people don't play as many first party titles on playstation as they think they do, especially compared to that Nintendo. Many first fight in te towels. Almost all my Nintendo titles our first last party. That's the thing exactly. 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 actually maybe get a pusfour after ready after had ready bought a nextplus one is the fact that the player base is mostly on Psfour. The most of my friends are on PSFOUR. There's a generally and a lot more people, especially in this country, on the PSFOUR in comparisons the xbox one, and so obviously you're going to go where the majority of people are. It just makes it easy and so I feel like that's the main thing with the psfive and that's the main attribute the psfive has over the xbox. I'm series X in this console generation. Yeah, I think yeah, because it's you feel a lot of most a lot of us had the PSFOUR. It did help at the well, disconsolt generation last one at the time was because that was maxist long hold, for own fault as well. They didn't help themselves with the whole havings 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. I had an export one for a bit but I didn't reply much and the last the other storemost the time of PSFOUR. So yeah, so it marks of really going to try and get people, you know, back over on to their side. So they've been really aggressive it, but they've not really've done well, 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 the psfive because, you know, people custom somewhat Sony. So we will see, but we will properly do a more bigger discussion of this we gets after we see what they should I'm certainly showcase on Wednesday and then compare and just on that point around, comparing the prices between the stony consoles and the Microsoft ones. What are you guys thoughts on, you know, lower the lowering of the price of consoles, for instance, that you have the xpots which is going to cost two hundred and forty nine, like the only you guys think 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 it will be accessible to people, does that in some way lower the value of Microsoft gaming products? I don't know. I wouldn't say it low as the value 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 series x, but I think they what they offer still as because it's as next Gen. 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 be quite competitive there. It's got a lot of wealth lergy. That is for next Gen. it's still going to be equal. Still up skill games to for K. I think it's more. It would be. It's more powerful on 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'll see what happens. Well, when you go through, as we go through this console, generations, you happens. But yeah, I don't say it's just 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 the two consoles, it's very important to remember that most of us still got massive back locks. Some people in particular, some some more than love this. It's sorry. Basically, what it is just quickly. It's called determined that Chris was the incomputers being COMPEC. I didn't see it, so it doesn't affect Oh yeah, he didn't. We saw it. We saw it, so it exists. I decided. I vote. It turns, by the way, for yourself and I'll feels are votes, so I'm fine. I think it's really important to realize that at the end of the day, we find these consoles for games. Is Very, very easy to get sucked into the whole consumerism and the hip to make us buy these consoles without much sort thought behind it. Because, for example, you buy a peers five, now, what games are you going to buy for it? What Games have you got in your head you want to buy for this console? That's Miles Morales. 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 the showcase. I've not really been interested in many of them. I can't lie to you switch. I bought that launch only because before the road doesn't launch title. Or that was me as well as I don't say again, but for me, yeah, for me that was like a really big thing and breath of the world. I feel like I'm saying it was the game that I'd been looking forward to for a very long time and so that justified the console for me personally. Yeah, anything else, anything else, was a bonus. 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 against eyes 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 a limited release schedule? But I guess again, we'll see on Wednesday. Will what's only have to say if they give us updates on new titles, if they give us more pricing information, which I mean they have to do at this point. I think the hope, the whole reason it's been late is because 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 on the twenty five anniversary of the playstation. It's true. It's quite a swat tactical decision to kind of overshadow Sony's achievements...

...and let's not forget, as what they actually did well as well, because it was leaked as well. With their S. Yeah, yeah, they they did well with the PR with that actually absolutely well, and I played it. Did play really well because the way they did it. You saw the the they did that was it, that poppet, that monkey popping in origin the next year. This is a muscle that the back out. I think they'd. Yeah, I think they 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 thing for them. And now, like I said, the walls and Sony school hardly 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 presentation or direct ever. But a part of me is thinking maybe they've been disquiet because they just have something up their sleeve, or maybe they just believe that the PS five speaks for itself and they did need to. I don't know how. I was taking to a speaking to that pun lay a couple days ago about this and I don't see personally what they could release or what contently could 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 itself is nothing to me. Means nothing same. So they don't have they don't have that kind of nostalgia aspect that Nintendo have. When Nintendo could, you know, build a massive, massive hype train by putting out maybe F zero, or I mean mother three, mother three, mother three remake or something big, you know, instead of I've got an abundance of titles that they could 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 really put out new IPS to really really hype people up because, as we know, most of the Times, most of the time new IP, a new IP, fails to meet up to expectation. So for me it's got to be the price, it's got to be information on, you know, backwards compatibility, it's got to be stuff that really affects gamers on a day to day essentially, like price aside, like, if we want to like really use our imaginations, what games could be announced that could just make you a compete one hundred and eighty or what you just say, O Galaxy on paystation for that imaginative. But okay, I understand. I'll be honest, I have 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 product of 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 them today, they're not going to build generate as much hype as they as they probably deserve, even like, for example, look at the it's not first wiped out, but look at the end Prince of Persian remake. It's just getting insulated online because of the lack of quality. Oh yeah, see, people are saying, Oh, just so time to fix this. Guy's a hack. Yeah, it's like they're really going what people people forgetting that was the 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 the whole 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 going to come out with the anniversary faith for anniversary collection. People excited for that because it holds up well. We're not only today's Today's gaming, but it also holds up because of the art. The Art Style is allows it to hold up. Same thing with games like wind waker. Yeah, yes, yeah, yeah, when Waker did hold up well over the years. That's the sciaded graphics. Yeah, as I that its hold up well. So even games like street fighter to yes, some look up because we've got the futtier we had that thirty if anniversary dish. They came on the switch. Yeah, yeah, still look quite well. Yeah, it real depends on the games, for some games do not age well, some do. I think that's the reason why I like I could care less about like super higher realistic graphiction games, because they're impressive now, but give it five years. Anyone be a such advanced so quickly year by year that it's very good be for things to stop being so impressive. I guarantee breath for the world to hold up, I think, in the years to come as well. I like it's very like ye stick because, yeah, where most people found that a twilight princess is one of my favorite games and it's probably, I've said this is probably my top three Zo the Games. To be honest. Probably it's something the oar direction doesn't hold up nearly as well as B to the wild 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 look at 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 people just don't like them visually. It's very, very few games that really hold up from that era. Yeah, I'll see a lot of a lot of 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 prathical quality. It's a lot more realistic, but a lot of the fans were even seem like it's lost a bit of the character because the original was a lot 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't think it's going to hold up. Yeah, even with regards that going back to play games, Retro Games, you only have to don't you don't even need to look at far people. How many people do you see that go back 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 see anyone really go back to Pierce One's if you do like the yeah, to all superintendo were cool. Pee. I see people play Superintendo Games a lot of time. It's this mini did gets. It's yes, Oh, okays. So that's a great example. there. You made a great example, because that's there's yeah, there, there's many did so well. But when the 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 at other games on that on that console, when impressive. Yeah, I feel it. 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 ahead in terms of the muscle of I really just saw how Nintendo did both feeling like the neres mini. Then they did the snares and they thought maybe they could do that. Yes, they fould...

...emulate, but I think it just it just hits to that the nature of the industry. Even now, I didn't think some companies are thinking that way in terms of that future proofing their games in that regard, because it's just like, oh me to bring out like a new game has to look really good, and that's just the nature of 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 can imback the need to impressed people in that way. Yeah, I guess until Wednesday will get an update on the station starts or whether they want to be serious. Yeah, they just or whether they just want to play games. They get it, you're thought. Yeah, but we'll see. I mean the pricing is definitely something that's going to be it's going to have to be rebuilt. 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 like year and a half. Yeah, the idea someone's or how much was exactly no idea. How is actually going to cost. Yeah, I don't see any other way. They cannot come out of the price because they'll be nothing'll be mad not to come out the price on Wednesday. To be honest, I don't see. I was reading, you know, when they put the showcase. I was reading a little a little arcle. They are just saying about game showcase. They wouldn't mention that they on that, that they said he'll bring out the price, but they should. They will have to bring out the price because, like I said, michaels played their how did they don't yet? I feel be a bad mistake of it, and I was. It would be embarrassing. It would be embarrassing. Very good if we don't see the place they should start off the price. It's tip and it's it'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 how they've kind of become more in tuned with today's Gamers. They know what we want and they're given us what we want. They know that people want backwards compactibility. Believe they're doing that. They do even want good prices and they know people want an abundance of games, of different games to play. And Fair 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 gaming like Sony and Microsoft and even say good dudes. But what they're trying to do, we know they've done, is bought a lot of small studios in order 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 got a smart delivery, so you can, you know, have the other Gamerre don't exx one, x cloud, xcloud. Year they've they're really trying to do for the future of gaming. So and well, I'm I was the other thing I was even going to mention was we know that Microsoft and Nintendo have a good relationship. Yes, they do. Actually like it wouldn't be out of the realms of possibility to see a service like x cloud on the switch. HMM, which would die crazy cells for both consoles, both both the switch and and for the xbox series x and serieses. So it would be 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 one million munits now, by the way, not surprise nor so. Yeah, probably would have sold a little bit more if it were he if it hadn't been for the shortages during covid oh, yes, yeah, yeah, yeah, true, very true. Definitely, because always saying I've looked everywhere and I can't find yeah, true. Yeah, yeah, not even to find 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, getting too boys. We won heay those ness as well. We're going to switch that. I think they made. I was reading reports at about a new model as well. Yeah, I heard that, but I probably want to try 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. But yeah, I don't think they need to. I don't know. I don't need to personally even, to be honest, off in the fight they got their Nintendo. You know, they're right. They're not come. I don't wouldn't say they compete in you know, directly if something marks of what they they don't need to go that way of power anywhere. You know, they just 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 on zero hands how many times I've played on my switch on my TV screen this year. 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, I primarily play my switch and doct and that's actually better to do, because I actually read a few reports which said that if you play your on the switch dot then it causes it to overheat even faster, and that's when the problems I've been having my switch is why it played doctor anymore. And I believe them. Yeah, it couse got coins. Yeah, yeah, Hey, I mean never. Naturally, I did find, though, it depended on the title se like titles like Zelda. I had to play dot. Had To. 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 I was. The bigger titles, some more visually impressive ones. I tend to play dot because of obviously the slightly better frame rate, slightly beer smash after they bought. Oh yeah, that's that's that's the only game that I hundred percent. 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 I just it's just laziness. But really, in the majority of the Games I'm playing at the moment, they could be played on dogs like Spittune. You can put yeah, I can't. I can't actually play that doctor. I'm sorry, 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 up a play Bo a log Gi up aft up for plane dots. But yeah, I just love the octor. Anyway. Nintendo, keep innovating. Monkey keeping us so done. We talking about Xbox to keep wed.
