GTA Online, Mike Bithell’s Volume, Amazon potentially launching a console, and Microsoft removing mandatory Kinect are a few of the topics explored in this week’s podcast.
James, Anthony, and Jamie kick things off by speculating about the GTA Online announcement. It sounds good, but only playing the game will determine how good it really is. Discussion moves to more reversals from Microsoft, with the company deciding to remove the mandatory Kinect functionality for Xbox One as well as launching it in only 13 of its projected 21 countries. Plus, the shockingly good news that Microsoft will not make people buy DLC twice if they move from 360 to Xbox One. From one console to the next, discussion of the potential Android console from Amazon is discussed and though it may be too late, they crew believes Amazon are the most equipped to do a mobile-based console successfully. And they briefly discuss Mike Bithell’s newest project announcement Volume.
For what they’ve been playing, Anthony played Payday 2 and liked what he played, James played more Saints Row II, and Jamie talked about DuckTales Remastered.
