Wombat is confused by Microsoft Points, CheapyD is baffled by uDraw, and Shipwreck is puzzled by Xbox 720 rumors.

Shipwreck, Amazon hasn't been selling the 3DS directly since July or so and no one knows why. I think the same goes for Wii and DSi as well.

I think the Wii U really depends on how powerful it is in comparison to 720 and PS4. If recent rumors are anything to go by, it'll be weaker than 720, but not by a significant amount that would discourage ports to it.

And if used games weren't allowed on 720, sales and more importantly player volume would dry up there and go to other platforms, hurting third party games sales on the platform, something they currently have a stranglehold on. It's not something that's outside the realm of possibility of happening, but if it does, it will cost them marketshare and mindshare.

I never paid taxes on Microsoft points.
Ever.


Usually buy them at Wal-Mart B&M or on Amazon. Bought it through Buy.com once when it was on sale.

I rarely see Playstation cards on sale so I'm discouraged by MS turning points into cash.

Good show, guys.

As people have said, I have never paid tax on Microsoft points when bought at retail stores.

I'm also hyped about SSX. The Giant Bomb guys referred to it as "Burnout in snow"—which I dig. I like how the gear is something outta Borderlands and that the type of gear you equip matters when tackling mountains.

You know what's funny about this "Microsoft prohibiting the use of used games" hubbub? There was a hoax some seven years ago about Microsoft tinkering with "single-play DVDs."

I can't believe the need to dissect and translate the State of the Union speech by the media. Apparently it was worded so easily, any idiot could understand it. You could be playing Saints Row with the music turned off and be listening to the speech at the same time while having a brewski and still understand it.

I have not played Corporation Inc., but Tiny Tower and SimTower are substantially different experiences. Judging from screenshots of Corporation Inc., it doesn't appear to be the exact same game as Tiny Tower. Like I said, I haven't played it though. Just like the person who wrote that thing on Kotaku said they hadn't played Tiny Tower. Nice title by Kotaku too.

You guys mentioned there is nothing to play this month, well I'll shamelessly plug Star Trek Online! I'm a producer on the project and we just went Free to Play last week so I wanted to throw it out there.

Love the show, btw. I started listening when I was in QA to make the day go by faster, and that was somewhere around CagCast 50. Keep up the good work!

I got the Wii uDraw for my wife for Christmas 2010 because she's artistically inclined, but she said drawing with it was too difficult and not fun so it just sits in the closest.

I probably should have put the $63 I paid for it towards a Wacom tablet.

My favorite thing about the CheapyD Homie is his screaming. He doesn't have a parachute, yet he hasn't learned not to follow me into an airplane because I never bother to land them.

One thing I do like about Microsoft points: the prices are round. PSN prices have weird things like $2.39, which leaves odd amounts in my account. But with points, they always seem to be priced at even dollar, or half-dollar, equivalents.

The only way for Microsoft to successfully pull off the "no used games" feature is to go all digital. They have a large online user base, but are they prepared to sacrifice the non-connected masses? They aren't getting any dlc money from them now, so maybe they won't care if they're gone totally.
The new Xbox is rumored to have Bluray, which I am totally against. The poor read rate and mandatory installs is a big reason I do most my gaming on the 360 instead of the PS3. Maybe nextgen games should come on thumbdrives.
I am worried about my gamertag. Will they allow some sort of seperation between console generations to allow me to go back & forth without tedious recovery or USB shenanigans? I can see them implementing a new system of achievements, starting everyone at zero for the new system. Maybe they'll have an achievement-reward system in place this time.

I am still very cautious about the new SSX. SSX 3 was probably my favorite last gen game. But to me SSX is about two things: the crazy tricks and the characters. I have yet to see anything about voice acting for the new game. The worst part of SSX3 was the unlockable characters who were silent. If they're not going to give them the full quality voice acting, why bother having premade characters?

I think the rumor is true, to a degree. I see them implementing the current system of online codes for online play, minus the code. It would be easy to "activate" online features by tying it to a gamertag, thus a used game that was previously activated, would prompt you to buy an online pass.

Anything beyond that, would be offensive. But, if they could make the current online pass system without the need for the actual code, it would save publishers the price of the insert.

I also bought a UDRAW for the 360, for 30$. I had a good time with the Marvel game, and the various features of the art game were fun. Definitely worth 30 bucks, and might of been a success, at that price...

I also read Zynga tried to acquire the Tiny Tower dev. Makes it look worse for Zynga.

Why do so many people refer to the next Xbox iteration as the Xbox 720? It doesn't make any sense. Xbox 360 made sense because "360" meant all encompassing (video, online, games, music, etc.). Who thought that multiplying the 360 by 2 was the next iteration? Has Microsoft put that out as the temporary project name anywhere? It's not like they are at a skate park doing double 360's. It sounds bad but Xbox 360 2 makes more sense (they won't use that). Most likely they will just give it a new name to follow the "Xbox" brand. Sorry /rant off.

Great CAGcast, I was glad to see there wasn't an entire section of the show devoted to the comments last week, as I'm sure you'd agree would be neither constructive, nor enjoyable. Shipwreck pretty much summed it up with his strange iCarly reference.

The best part for me this week was the revival of Top Analyst, something that I really loved about the show that kind of just appears and disappears among the shows. It also makes me wonder the last episode you guys talked NPD numbers.

The Avengers cartoon is really good, which is surprising, especially with all the greatest Marvel TV shows (In my opinion) mostly centering around the nineties (i.e. X-Men, Spider-man.)

The only thing about the episode that puzzled me was lack of talk for the new Resident Evil trailer. As someone who 100% agrees with you about Capcom's shady business ethics, it's an awkward situation considering how utterly impressive the trailer looks at first glance.

In regards to the MS points going to $ values, I also think it is for the publishers to have more granular pricing options than what they currently have, ie. to be able to sell something for $1.29 instead of trying to sell it with an odd points value like 108 points. Also, now that the PSN has become a more viable platform, MS might see the value to having the same pricing convention as the PSN in order to compete more effectively.

I don't see this possible change impacting the occasional sale on MS point cards, as PSN cards, which are in dollar amounts, do go on sale occasionally...often at the same time as MS cards do.
