        “Pretending” to say words the correct one :)

  • Speedkiller

    • Lucky13X

      Listen to the pod cast and it makes sense.

      • Speedkiller

        i know i joking

  • ilovegoogleglass

    Wonder what the gadget is?

  • fastharryDOTcom

    beeta get someone working on the Titanfall servers….

  • eAbyss

    Beeta huh. Is that anything like a “Beta”?

  • Matt Honan

    37:00 – 39:00 Larry – With the audio being processed at the controller, will split screen games now support individual audio to each headset based on the player?

    • http://www.majornelson.com Major Nelson

      Great question. And yes.

  • Matt Honan

    36:21 – Larry’s comment – Albert I see what you did there :)

    • Lucky13X

      Wait, there is an Albert out there besides me? How dare he. Ha ha.

      • Lucky13X

        Btw, some of my comments are jokes if that is not immediately obvious.

    Maybe one of the things they are talking about long term wise are the Fortaleza glasses that I read about on the gaming news sites a while back ago. If so then they sounded cool. They extended the life of the 360 with Kinect. Maybe they will do something similar with Xbox One. If not I’m sure it will be something cool. The other thing would be the Illumiroom. That was really cool too. I saw a vid on it. I don’t now if it will make it to market, but I thought it did some cool visual effects to the room while gaming. I think microsoft actually had a vid demoing it. I don’t know if it’s still around.

    • Matt Honan

      Where did the illumiroom concept go? Exited thinking about the planning 5-7 years ahead – thinking maybe UI integration with peripherals for more immersive experiences? (i.e VR?)

      • Kenny Vega

        I remember reading that the Microsoft guys said that, while it was cool, it would be way to expensive for the average consumer to buy, let alone the space requirements to use it.

  • Digiadam

    Beeta? Need to learn to spell Larry. LOL!!!!

    • http://www.majornelson.com Major Nelson

      If you listen to the show, then the intentional misspelling will make sense

      • Senses Failed

        I’m from the uk, we still spell it beta :)

  • Lucky13X

    He he. Beeta got some fresh beats up in here. Anyways, thank you and EA for getting those replacement codes out same day. Still waiting to download XB1 version, but PC version gonna try loading again. Surely the servers are available?

  • Lucky13X

    Sweet show 500! Congrats. Been having a blast on the titanfall beta. Have you been playing it Larry?

    • http://www.majornelson.com Major Nelson

      Yup. Hit the level cap last night!

      • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

        Haha same here! Can’t get enough of it. Can’t wait to see the other maps! Woke up this morning to a great surprise.. An updated xbox one ! Can’t believe I only have 100 gigs left haha. Going to have to make room for the coming weeks. Thief, titanfall and metal gear !!! Xbox one rocks.

  • Magnus Mad Krantz

    Yes. A new podcast. Can I ask. Any word on a Swedish date for Xbox One?

    Is ANYONE seeing comments on the blog (MNR)? All I see is a box with the number of comments, but nothing else. I sent an email, but haven’t received a response.

    I’m ONLY able to view/post comments via the DISQUS site.

    • http://www.majornelson.com Major Nelson

      You need to click on the number and it should reveal the comments. If not, what platform and browser are you seeing the problem on?

      • http://twitter.com/lightsup55 Timothy Leucht

        Pfft, if I would’ve known that earlier…

        Thanks. I’ll just have to remember that next time.

    So what happened to the listen to the sound contest from 499? The one w/ “Mama??>…….. ”

    And whoever won the Titanfall Controller? (Do more of those omg do like 50)

  • Kelly Felhaber

    Beta is now available to everyone. On the Xbox One go to Store then Demo to find it.

  • Sledg

    If you do drop the prices of digital downloads, I will buy more games. If Ryse does drop to $40 tomorrow then I will definitely buy it. I hate nothing more than using a game disc in order to play my games. Freaking kids scratch them like crazy :)

    And congrats on # 500!

  • Killingfetish

    Is it safe to assume dolby digital via optical will be available with this update? All of our expensive headsets are suffering with stereo.
