I'm already over playing a "game" where I have to keep track of upgrading a 1000 different things and constant notifications blinging up on the screen notifying me of a 100 different things.

I'm curious, what game is this?

You'll have 3 choices (and 2 different price points).

 

Vintage Woodgrain ($279)

Graphite Black ($249)

Glacier White ($249)

 

All will come with great value bonuses that are different from the Founders Edition (not as good... but still pretty cool).  I have also decided to do something a little special for all of our Founders Edition folks as well!

 

 

Maybe a trip to the chocolate factory?

Tommy Talarico,

 

I ran out of questions for you so do you have any questions for us?


Yes.  Why do you spell my last name wrong.

 

 

:D

The Division 2.  I'm also not into it asking me every 5 minutes if I want to join someone's mission and play online.  Then it keeps notifying me that I have incoming messages that I'm supposed to check.  I really don't like it.

I read something interesting about the new Xbox today...

 

https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2020-inside-xbox-series-x-full-specs

 

My eyes glazed over after the first paragraph. Lots of talk about teraflops and CPU units cycling to multi-threaded cores that trace rays of light into the GPU... or something like that. What has yet to be mentioned is anything about the games.  Or why these changes will make playing games more fun.  Because things will be prettier and load faster? The PS4 offered pretty much the same thing the PS3 did, only with prettier graphics. Nothing really new. Nothing special. I'm already over playing a "game" where I have to keep track of upgrading a 1000 different things and constant notifications blinging up on the screen notifying me of a 100 different things.  Maybe I'm just getting old.

 

I like how Tommy and Intellivision rarely talk about the tech (except maybe the controllers) and instead almost always focus on the games. It's really a breath of fresh air.


Microsoft... not really known for their creative marketing genius.  :)

 

The one area that Apple ALWAYS dominated (and I'm not even an Apple fan... but facts are facts!)

That last Picture is giving me wii sports vibes, I'm sure it'll be a good time playing that game.

 

Tommy so if things don't get better, we won't have additional controllers on release day? I need at least 4 for my house but I'd like to have 6 for when friends come over. I got the FE so 2 will be coming, maybe I'll just buy a vip console as well to get 2 more controllers and have that console as a mobile unit to take on trips

Tommy ...   Could it be a good Idea to have pre-orders for extra controllers if you don't want (and can't) produce too many of them  !?

With all the talk of timetables, releases, part prices etc. it got me wondering.

 

Do you have someone in China overlooking all of the phases production?

There might be a whole new market for people who are good at repainting and color-changing the console. 

 

I've seen a bunch on Etsy and other sites for current and past consoles.

 

I wish I had the talent/patience.

 

Sadly I do not.

I had this game for the Intellivision back in the day also. I may have purchased it at Toys R Us too, or maybe Kaybee Toys or Service Merchandise... 

Service Merchandise...man blast from the past! Hadn’t heard that name in a while. I liked going there and Hills.

Too early to say at this point.  So far we are planning to have separate controllers on launch... but things like that will probably be the first things to go if it continues to get crazy.  Things are changing every day.

We've been talking about it.  Just need to make sure we can deliver what we promise.

Yep!  An entire team of folks actually.  They've been working with and for us for months.  Me & certain team members were with them for almost a week in China back in December.

Aside from that...
