#13836858 CAGcast #515: How Not to Table Trunk

I definitely meant to say “there’s no splitscreen, obviously”. Not sure what I actually said.

The same arguments Shipwreck made against upgrading to the Xbox One X he essentially repeated in favor of buying a new Iphone. And the carrying in your pocket doesn't fly since he could buy a cheaper slightly newer version than the one he already has. There is nothing wrong with being in the bag for Apple no matter what the logic as long as you are willing to admit it.


I like Apple products and it's time for me to get a new phone since my current one has issues. My Xbox One and PS4 currently don't have issues. This is really all the reasoning there is.

I don't just go buy the latest Apple products, but when I'm in the market I usually go on the upper tier. I'm currently using an iPhone 6 and a MacBook Pro that's got to be approaching 7-8 years old, but was on the high end when it released.

Kind of funny to hear Shipwreck giving Sony credit for 3rd party devs who make beautiful games but only publish them on the PS4. Horizon's great looking world is not thanks to Sony... Uncharted is a great looking game but he still had a hard time pulling any other examples. So many people pile on Microsoft for not having amazing first party games but then applaud Sony for titles that just happen to be exclusives to their platform. Both consoles are capable of great looking games. It's kind of funny to hear some unconscious bias surfacing due to the primary platform some people choose to engage with (I'm sure no one on the cast has a financial/other incentive to choose one over the other).


Guerrilla is a studio owned by Sony so I'm confused at how Horizon just happens to be on PS4. They consistently put out great looking games.

As far as me showing bias, I actually game more on Xbox One, but I call things how I see them and the graphic quality on Sony's first party games is better than Microsoft's right now.

As someone that does not own any consoles at the moment. I am a PC player. If I did want to get a console, I would have no problem getting the Xbox one X. So for it to be dismissed so easily as that there is no market for it does not seem right.


So... what you're saying is... you're not buying one.

Geez. Bite my head off why don't you. When I checked yesterday, the page said "cancelled by project creator". Forgive me for not going back to check on a dead body.

I think a simple "Nah, it's back up." would've sufficed.


Wasn't meant in that tone at all. This was really a reply to multiple posts above about the same subject. I've had a lot of people contacting me about this.

A while back I tried to get the Cagcast top analysts to predict the PSVR sales. I believe I said 1.5 million in 6 months, and now the news is almost a million sold against a target of 1 million in six months. I didn't get a response on a sales prediction from any of the hosts.

Predictions: The Cagcast will ignore this news or spend a good 10 minutes convincing us these are underwhelming numbers.


Prediction: I'm going to ignore everything about PSVR.

The Switch has carts and SD storage. That's your different requirements. Because of the SD card slot and the fact most will buy carts, there is no reason for Nintendo to offer more storage than is necessary.

Besides, the more internal storage they include, the higher the pricepoint anyway, so either they charge everyone more and include more internal storage or they charge less and let just those that need more storage buy an SD card. Seems reasonable.


And a $650 iphone only having 32gb just shows that much more expensive mobile devices only have 32gb as well. I don't think Nintendo is being extra cheap here.


32gb seems reasonable. Apple has that amt on their $650 iphones and they have no SD card slot.

The main way of buying games on a Switch is still going to be carts.


IF you're digital heavy consumer who downloads Dragon Quest Heroes then you're going to want an SD card anyway even if the Switch had double the storage.


IF they increased the storage on the Switch every customer would pay more not just those that will only download games.


It's not just choosing downloadable retail games. It's eShop, it's DLC, it's Virtual Console, it's game updates, it's system updates, it's any media apps, it's screen captures. That 32 GB is going to go quick for everyone.

I've got two of these.

Who is unplugging the power cord from the dock once it is plugged in? I'd venture not the majority of people. They are going to set this up on their TV stand and never touch the cables again. If you want a separate power cable in the go, then sell a smaller one as this plug is in no way great for that either. Also, many surge protectors (mine included) have the outlets oriented vertically, so this type of plug takes up 3 outlets. I'll buy an extension cable so it's not a big deal, it's just something that I don't agree with design wise.

Why would I specifically mention Valve in previous conversations about VR? I think we've been spot on with our VR predictions.

Valve is for all purposes a platform owner. That's much different than third parties putting money down to develop for VR rather than develop a standard game.

The big difference is that PlayStation TV isn't Sony's home console.

I don't understand Shipwreck's complaints about the Switch.
He wants Nintendo to make a console on par with PS4/X1. All the rumours suggest that is exactly what Switch is. And you have the option of getting the Switch Pro controller.
 
I think Nintendo combining their console and portable development teams is great. Owning 1 Nintendo console over 2 is fine with me.
 
Also, Pokemon RPGs on home consoles do exist.


You're kidding yourself if you think this is going to be as powerful as the other consoles AND portable AND affordable. You simply can't be all those things.

Do you kill 500+ people primarily by shooting from a third person perspective in any Zelda game?

That's more people than my Nathan Drake killed in my 18 hour playthru of Uncharted 4.


I'm not really understanding what point you are trying to make here? Tomb Raider is almost twice as long?

I've finished Uncharted 4 now and disagree with just about every opinion you have about it and Tomb Raider. Sticking with my 8.5.
