    Hey Larry please give us some info on when the new spiderman game will be released for xbox one.. I am really looking forward to getting this game and will gladly wait a little extra time to get it for the xbox one, but if it’s going to be delayed for a long time or even canceled I would like to know so I can get it for the ps4.. I think it’s just fair to people who are loyal to xbox such as myself to give us some info so we know what we should do.. please take the time to answer ! Thanks in advance :)

    • Kenny Vega

      You would have to ask Activision since they are the ones publishing.

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

        That’s true, they are but they said in a statement that they’re working with Microsoft to figure it out.

        • Death Dealer

          Didn’t they say the game was finished and running 1080p on both systems? I don’t think it truly matters if you get in on either then if you’re truly into that type of game and want to play it right now.
          I’m sure it will release in a couple of weeks. Don’t know why the game would suddenly be halted when the game reaches production status though. It’s definitely strange.

        • Kenny Vega

          Yea but on the technical side (for whatever the problem is), Activision is still the one that will set the release date.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      it will come out on x1 prob at same time as ps4. media just jumps on things too quickly i think.

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

        I’m not sure that’s the case. Going by the statement given by Activision anyway..

    • Lenonn

      I agree – Microsoft needs to get ahead of this. If Sony jumps on this and blames the cancellation/delay it on the XBox hardware, it’s not going to be a good thing.

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

        Yeah not to mention you’ve got another game in a week after coming out for ps4 and not heading to xbox one.. bound by flame. It sucks !

        • Mr&Mrs Ninja

          Bound by Flame? Never heard of it… is it good? Is it a RPG? I NEED AN RPG ON X1!!!

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

            Yeah it actually looks to be quite good. Its an rpg and the combat looks great. It’s coming out for the 360 but not for xbox one :/ it will be out for ps4 though which sucks for xbox one owners !

  • Kenny Vega

    I still have a copy of E.T., haha

    • evilfangs .

      Me too ( I hope ) in still minted box. Never opened. I got it from a car boot ( flea market I think Americans call it ), I never looked inside the box to actually check to see if there is a E.T game in there lol.

      • Kenny Vega

        Haha, yea I found it at a flea market also. Many moons ago when I was a youngn’. lol

    • Lenonn

      So do I. Played it all the time when I was much, much younger. I actually don’t get all the hate.

    • roozbeh, again

      How many years has it been?

      • Kenny Vega

        For me? I guess I’ve had it for about 20 years.

        • roozbeh, again

          Damn, I am old.

  • Nathanzz

    KSR sounds interesting. Hate to be a broken record, but any updates on whether Kinect will be getting an extension cable? Or is that just never going to happen?

    • Death Dealer

      Maybe 3rd party ones?

  • Beano

    Anybody see the sale Playstation is running? Wow wow we wow

    • fur low

      Ya, I’m jelly bro

  • StaceyJK

    Really great show. Great interview with Mr Baer.

  • yorozuya


  • Death Dealer

    Loved the interview.Very insightful.

  • Some guy

    Sony is making a 0.99$ sale on 30 games.
    I doubit it would happen, but it would be great is MS did something like that too.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      even on some of those sam and max games and they never go on sale. $1 for the whole series and 2 other telltale game series, back to the future and jurassic park. crazy if you ask me. but i bought them all. i think they did that because we were kind of mad about the uk getting an easter sale and the us didn’t.

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    i want to buy a copy of et just to have it. i want one from the dump site though.

  • Shakeslikecrazy

    Ha ET. Hope you people find what you are looking for.

  • amnesiac

    Anyone know what the new deals with gold going to be tomorrow?
