The lights are on
A lot has happened in the world of gaming since our last Reader Mailbag podcast – we've got new systems on the horizon and a ton of great games coming out this fall. If you'd like to ask a question of the GI podcast crew, just leave it in the comments section below. We will answer as many of the sensible (and not-so-sensible) questions as we can.
Email the author Matt Helgeson, or follow on Twitter, and Game Informer.
Do you believe what's happening to the Wii U is isolated? Or do you see the trend with not just the Wii U, but the 3DS and Vita as a sign that console launches are needing a longer stream of post launch games in the first 6 months?
I may be one of the few, but I really liked some of the always on options that the xbox one provided before they took them away, such as being able to not have to change discs, family settings, and others. Will Microsoft ever offer both options? I think it might be a great way to show how useful it could be?
What is your favorite video game trailer?
Do you ever think developers will ever create "Directors" versions of games, like they do for movies? Meaning being able to play the game and then have directors, voice actors, producers do voice overs. I would totally buy a new copy and replay Bioshock, if I could hear Ken Levine talk about why/how he created the move. Same for other games like Red Dead, Bioshock Infinite, Last of Us and others.
I am a Microsoft fanboy, but really thinking of buying a PS4. I am just worried that it will not sell that well, especially early. What system, if any, are you buying and why are you choosing it over the other system?
What are you're thoughts on the next-gen systems? What I mean is: do you think they have reached their potential or will we get a new console every 5-10 years? Or will their be a time when next-gen consoles reach a technical, graphical, ect, limit?
This is a technical question. We all know that the xbox1 will use 3 OS one of the is Windows OS. Could we expect Virus , Trojan, blue screen of death or any other normal windows bugs ? It's running Windows OS on X86 chip architecture just like a normal PC. Should Xbox1 need antivirus and spyware software ?
What are you more excited about, GTA V or next gen consoles?
In the case of a world-wide catastrophic emergency, which of the editors would be the first to be eaten by the others? For an extra challenge, don't say Dan.
Can I get a shout out from Reiner?...cause he's awesome, just saying.
Do you think we will see steam like sales to push digital distribution with the next gen systems? And in the same kind of area do you think games for the next gen will make more of a MMO leap then single player with a co-op option?
