Show Notes

Youtube getting live TV?

Titanfall 2 has dropped to mostly positive reviews

Skyrim special edition has released with mods. Mods are limited on PS4 no “Original” mods. PS4 has two thirds fewer mods than microsoft platforms. Sony doesn’t allow mods that add or drastically change gameplay. They have limited the file size for mods to 1GB and do not allow scripts, audio files, or textures.   You’ll need to create a bethesda.net account to access mods.

Kingdom Hearts 3 screenshots are dropped to show mt. Olympus. They probably heard our predictions and are trying to suppress our theory.

CS:GO Lounge

As the CS:GO gambling suit continues to take shape, CS:GO Lounge has filed for an official gambling license. In a statement from CS:GO Lounge, “Virtual items in CS:GO have no monetary value” but then they go on to say, “We have decided to acquire a license to legally operate in most countries and be able to accept esports bets by our community, as if it were real money.” Also operating a Dota 2 Lounge website, CS:GO Lounge was one of the many recipients of a cease and desist letter from Valve demanding a stop to all gambling using Valve property. The main defense against the lawsuits of illegal gambling are arguing that the randomized rewards aren’t actually monetary, and are therefore legal, but with the pursuit of a gambling license, CS:GO Lounge almost openly admits that it was gambling all along.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3

Black Ops 3 has broken Activision records by becoming the most profitable Call of Duty of all time while still in the first half of it’s 1 year life cycle. Sales of in-game content have doubled, compared to previous years at the same time period.  It can now be assumed that every Call of Duty from this point on will have a Black Market/ Supply Drop gear system that, will include skins, camos, and weapons. While the futuristic movement has deterred some players, it has not been enough and we, as a community of gamers, can expect more games similiar to Black ops 3 in the future. Black Ops 3 was the best selling game of 2015 and has continued that trend into 2016 still reigning supreme.

Also, Activision – Blizzard reported over $1 Billion from in-game content across all games (Call of Duty, Overwatch, Hearthstone and others).

Elder Scrolls: Legends

Elder Scrolls: Legends, the closest contestor to Hearthstone is now in open beta at Betheseda.net. Is now and forever will be, a free to play collectible card game.

Playstation

PS4 accounts for 78% of revenue for Sony between April  and June 2016, which is an increase of 14.5% from 2015. From Sony’s fiscal report, “this significant increase was primarily due to a significant increase in PS4 [game] sales including through the PS Store(…) and a decrease in PS3 hardware and software sales.” Games released in this quarter include: Dark Souls 3, Ratchet and Clank, DOOM, Overwatch, Lego The Force Awakens, and of course, best selling game of 2016, selling 3.41 million units, Playstation exclusive Uncharted 4. At an average of $55 per Uncharted sales alone, Uncharted 4 adds $1.86 million in revenue; total Sony Movie Studios took in $2.13 Million. The gaming sector for Sony is the strongest of the whole company in a usually slow quarter.
