    Do you have to find all the relics and banners and all that nonsense to platinum?

    Have to think we will finally get price and release date here, they can't wait much longer. They need to get pre-orders started, and the longer they wait the worse the global financial picture gets, which doesn't help them obv.

    I’ll guess Xbox announces one a week or two later with a lower price as well, along with whatever Lockhart ends up being. Going to be a couple of really interesting weeks in video games I think.

    I feel like you want to go first in this case, get people while they maybe still have stimulus money. As you said, very interesting times.

    I don’t know, I think if you’re Microsoft you want to go second, know what Sonys price is and decide if you can or want to undercut, which I think they should do.

    Sony I think it matters less when they go, they have less to lose either way imo. I think it’s going to be really interesting to follow.

    you may be right, but IMO they already have their prices chosen, only thing that would change it is a major change in manufacturing cost. They are just playing chicken with each other at this point I think, maybe it changes their marketing a bit but by now they have decided whether they can afford to take a hit on each unit sold or not, which largely determines their pricing strategy.

    i agree largely with you here but I think it Microsoft could theoretically make minor tweaks say from 450-400 if they needed to or 500 to 450 if they don’t feel they can take that large a bit.

    It’s been 12 weeks. No one has their stimulus money left.

    Anyone with extra income is because they’re saving on auto insurance/gas or took a different job.

    Yeah in Japan it’s fashionable to be as stick thin as possible, or so one of the locals told me. Very strange.

    Different culture. Imagine how strange we look with grown men that wear shorts and flip flops to a culture that only wears pants and close-toed shoes.
    They must be truly bewildered hearing how vain Americans are while seeing how many morbidly obese people we have.

    Is this by the same creators of Gang Beasts? Pretty dope game that could’ve been so much better than it was without the controls holding it back.

    I plat’d it in about 40 hours. So not nearly as much as the 2 mentioned. But it’s definitely enjoyable.

    Did it rain a lot? My wife got Mario paper or whatever new version is out and I got Ghost, so she’s been making us watch a bunch of Japan you tubers videos at night. It seems like it’s raining in 9/10 vids.

    I did ever side mission before moving through and I think that’s the only way to do it. Definitely glad I did it that way.
