    Exclamation Google set to announce next-generation console at GDC - Rumored partnership with SEGA

    Join us March 19, 2019 10AM PDT live at https://g.co/gdcreveal19 as we unveil Google’s vision for the future of gaming.

    Some people think this could be a cheap device and a controller that plays games by streaming-only.
    Others think it be a real, physical console hardware. Or both.

    Thoughts? I'd be interested for any exclusive Sega games, whatever Google's effort turns out to be.

    Knowing Google, all the games will be free but the device will record all your conversations and a camera installed will monitor what clothes youre wearing and what items are in your house so as to gauge what advertisements you are forced to watch every 5 minutes during gameplay.

    Well, I'll tell you what I think about the idea of a new Google-created gaming console.

    {Install aPirate anti-malware on your phone today from Google Play. [X] Click.}

    Whatever it ends up being, I bet that, other than the console and its controllers, that it'll be a digital-only offering. And hopefully Google won't kill it off as quickly as it has killed off some of its other Google software, hardware, and services which it once used to offer.

    It just needs to be hacked, like the recent NES/SNES/PS1 plug and plays. I wouldn't pay for any additional games on a digital only device, not today anyway.

    I kind of think it would be cool to play something like the Sega Channel or Satellaview now specifically for the unique content that's essentially lost today, but I don't really have much interest in modern games besides the odd PC title so a modern type of download service doesn't interest me.

    Not really. I would liken it to having a large 4K UHD or Blu Ray collection and also subscribing to Netflix. You can be a movie lover and do both, just like you can be a collector of physical games and also enjoy digital games.

    It looks like the Google talk might be about their console named or code-named "Yeti," and that it is a cloud-based video-game streaming console. I hope you don't plan to truly own your games and that you have a high-speed (25 mbps or faster) Internet connection!

    Not everything has to be owned. I have a large collection, but I have some licensed digital games too. Sometimes it's ok to just enjoy something in the moment.

    To truly own a game you either have to make it yourself or buy the rights to it. What you get when you buy a game is a limited license to play the game. When you buy a physical game you get to own the case, disc, etc... but the game itself is owned by the rights holder.

    Or do what I do. Collect DVDs, VHS, Laserdisc, and other dead formats, and don't subscribe to Netflix or even cable. For anything else just watch it on a computer using the internet. I don't need to pay extra to watch anything as I can find it all online on various sites.

    I'll still occasionally watch modern stuff but I won't pay extra for non-physical copies, I'll consume it for free. If it's all treated as disposable then I'll treat it as something disposable too, as in not important enough to spend money on.

    Look at what happened to the Michael Jackson episode of The Simpsons, it's now been pulled from online streaming and from future home media releases. The only way to watch it will soon be the earlier DVD releases. I like my physical stuff even though it takes up space.

    i dont get why people are now just boycotting Michael Jackson. The man had been dead for 10 years and was accused of molestation for the last 25. Have these people been hiding under a rock? Were they not convinced by all the testimony?

    A new documentary came out.

    Actually related to the topic, the controller got leaked and looks awful.

    Oof, that does indeed look wretched.

    As for yet another anti-modern, anti-digital conversation springing up, I honestly wonder why some members even bother clicking on the "Modern Gaming" section.

    Nobody cared about Bill Cosby for all the years he was accused either, only recently did people start caring. It's the current popular trend that companies and people are trying to attach themselves too, it's mostly for publicity and pandering. It's like in the 90's environmentalism was the popular trend with various shows and movies focusing on them; Captain Planet, Fern Gully, Once Upon a Forest, On Deadly Ground, etc. Today social justice type stuff is the main trend, it'll be replaced with something else in the next decade once people get bored with it.

    Probably because there's so little discussions going on throughout the rest of the forums. Since this whole forum was meant for collectors of classic consoles, why are so few people talking about older games now? I don't get it. Why don't people here care about old games anymore?

    I keep hoping for a modern topic about some modern games or releases that are actually interesting but it's just news about crap. Basically the things Jim Sterling says about the modern game industry are all true, which is just sad.

    Low activity or not, I don't see value in immersing myself in things I dislike or have no interest in and being a fountain of negativity. I dislike 99% of gaming videos on Youtube, so I don't even bother clicking on the Gaming Videos section. I could talk about how I can't stand various mega-popular Youtube channels, but I don't want to be the person raining on the parade of those who do like them. Likewise, I barely touch computer games, so I don't waste my time going into the Computer Gaming section.

    I couldn't speak for before 2004, but in all my time here, the regulars have always embraced modern gaming. Like the section description says: "As we always say: it doesn't have to be OLD to be CLASSIC." Over the years, I've noticed many regulars would mostly play modern games, while they'd collect, not so much play, retro games. Me, my playing is probably more like 80% retro and 20% modern, though it fluctuates. But whatever floats anybody's boat is fine, and they can talk about whatever they please around here, as long as it's in the appropriate section and not trolling. The Modern Gaming section is hardly a comprehensive look at what's coming out these days, so the lessened activity has hit the entire board.

    Sorry, but I'm not going to steal from content creators just because they don't make physical options of certain content available. Like I said, I have a large collection of physical media, but I don't agree that streaming media has zero value and stealing something digitally is no different than shoplifting physical media.

    This is garbage. Bill Cosby fought for years to kill the cases against him. Sometimes it just takes a while for victims to come forward and the judicial process can be slow. The reality is that we finally have a cultural moment where people are questioning whether sexual predators should be allowed to continue to victimize people and profit from their art. Thankfully we have turned a corner and people like Cosby, R. Kelly and others have been called to account for their crimes.

    I agree wholeheartedly with that. I don't get the sense of entitlement that so many people have these days, that if something isn't released 100% exactly as they'd like it, whether that's on their preferred platform or in their preferred format or what have you, then suddenly it's fair game to steal other people's hard work. Either buy the thing or pass on it entirely.

    Agreee but also I think abuse allegations carry more weight now because its been in the public eye so much lately.

    I knew Mike was a pedo but still bought his music. If Hitler made some really good music, would you pay for it?

    I agree with the Yeti...or whatever it will be called, will most likely be download or streaming. It just fits with Google's push for everyone to have a digital, online lifestyle...under Google.

    As for the more conversations about modern games back in the early-to-mid 2000's: there was a lot of cool stuff going on. IMO the games were in between old style game play with fresh visuals along with some decent multiplayer online gaming. Heck, each month for a while I would post what was on each month's demo disc of Official Xbox Magazine. At that point in time, retro seemed kinda quiet.

    These days, retro/classic is exploding. We have great, viable ways to get our classic on, we're getting more new titles on "dead" consoles and we're getting new modern consoles that are great replacements for our aging equipment. If this stuff happened then rather than now, the modern to classic chatter would have probably flip-flopped.

    It's called Google Stadia. I might try it if the price is right. Here's a truncated video of the most important parts of the presentation courtesy of Engadget.

    The controller looks pretty much fine to me, it's like most PS1-current style controllers. It's not the worst controller a console came with.

    I'm just voicing my opinion as a part of the discussion. I looked into a topic about a new console, only the details mentioned were disappointing to me so I gave my opinion.

    I usually stay away from the bigger channels too, only occasionally I watch some of Jim Sterling's stuff if they're short. Basically he talks about how the modern industry is focussing on micro-transactions, overpriced DLC, loot boxes(gambling), and treating employees like garbage(including layoffs after completing a project) all in the name of profit. They're not games anymore, they're "live services". I also just found out how Dead Or Alive 6 has it's season pass priced at $92.99, which is on top of the cost of the game. Who can afford games costing $100+?

    Copyright infringement is different from shoplifting, at least it used to be classified differently under the law in certain regions. Ashens described various anti-piracy ads from back in the day, I skipped ahead to the relevant part. It's not the same thing. Also if you can't sell something(even at a loss), lend it out, or give it away, it has zero monetary value in my eyes.

    I agree that people need to be charged and held accountable for their crimes. I disagree that every piece of content that they ever touched needs to be wiped off the face of the earth. Maybe remove their ability to profit from their creations. Firing people off of shows or movies so they're out of work, that's fine. Of course they're fired before actually being proven guilty, essentially having their lives and reputations ruined when there's a chance that some are actually innocent. Innocent until proven guilty and all that.

    Now is the time to remove Michael Jackson's Simpsons episode, so that his dead corpse can no longer profit off of it. He didn't make the entire episode by himself though, so every person who worked on the script, animation, other voice acting, etc, no longer have their work and contributions appreciated. Possibly hundreds of people. What about their profit? This is clearly really about public opinion, if the public is upset with something and doesn't want to pay for it because of someone involved in it, then they change it or ban it to remove that negativity. When companies get involved, it's about money.

    Also nobody has mentioned banning the Naked Gun movies when OJ Simpson is in them. Although he's a murderer, so maybe that gets a pass from people compared to sexual assault. There's no consistency with backlash, basically whatever is currently trending is what gets peoples attention and outrage. There's currently no sweeping motion to go through every piece of media in existence to remove any that had someone questionable involved with.

Either buy the thing or pass on it entirely.
    I'm going to question who here has ever played a fan translated game, or played an unreleased prototype? So much content would be currently lost if not for people violating various copyrights. This was all considered to be disposable at one point when it became outdated and obsolete. Also the only reason the Star Wars Holiday Special survives is because of people who copied and shared it over the years, same with the uncut Talespin pilot movie.

    I just don't see a reason to reward modern companies that keep finding ways to take away more consumer rights. With download only media you can't sell or trade them when you're done, or lend them out to friends. It's like they found ways to sell pet rocks again.

    For the most part I'm mostly talking about shows or movies rather than games, there's few modern games that interest me and my PC can't run a lot of them anyway. A lot of the time various shows are available to watch online legally for free, only they're not streaming in Canada or the site's player doesn't work in my browser, which is when I look elsewhere to watch them. Am I going to bother downloading a whole bunch of various streaming software like Crunchyroll or Netflix to fill up my hard drive with bloated unneeded software? No, I like keeping my system lean, and I hate signing up for various online accounts which could become compromised or hacked. It's just a hassle I'd gladly avoid. If I do like something, I'll still buy a legit physical release assuming one is available.

    I mostly just watch free content on youtube anyway. It's pretty much just as good as most TV shows.

    I knew Mike was a pedo but still bought his music. If Hitler made some really good music, would you pay for it?
    I'm not fully convinced Michael Jackson actually did it, he still could have but as nothing was actually conclusively proven it's still unknown. Sure he was weird, but he seemed more like an asexual who felt nothing sexual towards anybody, he just acted like a kid with his theme park based house. That was my impression anyway, I never met him and I doubt anybody on the forum did either so it's all just an opinion.

    Very true, it's just appreciated in a very different way now compared to how it used to be. There's more interest in new hardware to play existing games on new monitors and TVs than interest in the games themselves, or new homebrew releases for old consoles. I view it the same way as old stereo equipment, you can still buy new turntables but if you want a good quality one, it's best to just get an old one from the 70's and refurbish it. I feel the same way about video game consoles where I personally would want original hardware. People can do what they want, it's just not that exciting to me to hear about yet another way to play old console games.
