I really ended up liking Sunset Overdrive a lot, took some of the anger of having to buy an Xbox One just to play it.  The music is fun to listen to and the colors used will help now that winter is coming and the sunsets around 5 p.m. which is why I HATE standard time.

NPD discussion starts around 1:04:30.

 

All that Sony advertising for Destiny paid off to the tune of a 90% hardware sales advantage in September.

 

MS didn't give out hardware numbers while Sony did, even Pachter was surprised by how off he was so the guys make it seem MS got one over on Sony doesn't add up.

Shipwreck - what was the rca to hdmi converter you bought?  Still working well? Thx

I just recently bought a TG-16, Sega Genesis/Sega CD combo, and Sega Saturn so I've been looking at a composite to hdmi scaler.

 

The weird thing is, the TG-16 with an RF adapter looks better on my TV than either of my Sega consoles connected with either an RF or composite connection.  

 

There isn't much that interest me this holiday season on the current gen systems, granted I now have to save up for a PS4 since I gave mine to my brother since he moved to Texas but the Sega Saturn has a lot of awesome games.

Both free games for the Xbox One suck and since there was nothing free this week on PSN I bought The Last of Us Remastered and it was the best thing I could have done.  I deleted both Xbox One games after the first level of each one but I've been playing TLOU non stop and worth every cent, the 60fps makes a huge difference and makes the controls feel much better.

The news headlines and weather stuff that Wombat wants is essentially what Cortana is on Windows Phone 8.1. If you have used Google Now on Android it is very similar to that.

 

The current plan is that Windows 9 (codename "Threshold") is supposed to be deployed to PC, phone, and Xbox One next year and that Cortana should be included on all of them. If you have used Windows 8/Windows Phone there are excellent Bing apps (News, Weather, Finance, Sports, Travel, Cooking, Health) that Cortana pulls data from and records your preferences to your Microsoft Account. Cortana will know your sports teams, stocks, favorite news subjects, what you like to cook, traffic to your workplace, local weather, etc. across all devices with Cortana & Bing apps. Windows 9 will also enable developers to create 1 universal app or game for Windows and publish to all Windows platforms including Xbox One. Many developers are already making use of "cross play" between Windows 8 and Windows Phone (ie. Gameloft's Modern Combat 5) and this should extend out to Xbox One as well so that you can buy a game once and play on Xbox, PC, phone. The games also keep your save progress in sync as you move from machine to machine.

^Does not include Windows Phone 7 users (~25% of users)

As a Windows Phone user, you should know it is now on a down trend.  Heck the only markets where its "strong" or "healthy" is Italy and India if I'm not mistaken.  I enjoy Windows Phone but WP9 might be the last one if things don't get much better, U.S., China, and the vast majority of Europe are either uninterested or losing interest.
