Comic 132: Meeting - part 1

Just a comic I've been meaning to do for a while - an "industry meeting" with the characters... could work well as an "intro comic" to introduce the characters (years after starting) hahaha

And yeah, this is a multi-page comic! more stuff will happen in later pages

(Also, the upcoming Q&A is still accepting questions!)

A month or two ago, this wouldn't have even been a contest, with even Microsoft humbled by Sony's success. But perception changes quickly in this industry, with Microsoft gaining more traction and Sony losing it. The PS4 Pro was an amateur move.

Yeah, seems like Microsoft is starting to catch up... still got a long way to go, though!

Though I'm not sure I see the Scorpio doing much better than the PS4 Pro in the end, especially considering a majority of the titles will also be available on PC (with Microsoft pushing for titles to be available on all platforms) and most gamers in it for the specs seem to go for PC anyway? In general, the "half-upgrades" weren't the best idea.

Yeah. PS4 Pro. Thanks.

I kinda find the name funny... It is like your usual software. What is next? PS4 Enterprise? PS4 DeLuxe? :D

This would make a great Nintendo Be Like meme.

Hehe, yeah... she doesn't care much about their fighting anymore (for now, at least...)

More relevant than ever! Once again, I do not think NX is going to play a part in the game and Nintendo will just do their stuff in peace. But then they seem to be more careful after Wii U and that is another debate.

Right now it is either who has VR or whatever powerful version of already launched consoles. Scorpio vs. PS4 Pro? I forgot what Sony called it. I think Pro is just a better PS4.
Man. So many consoles all of a sudden.

Yeah, I know they're not gonna focus on the whole "spec rush" of the other consoles... and really, I like it this way? I feel like having a third console competing in specs right now would be a bit overkill. Plus, I'm not a big fan of the whole spec focus if it only makes games more expensive to make...

Yeah, Pro just seems like a bettter PS4, but same with Scorpio and Xbone, really. Not sure why they couldn't just release a new console... I feel like these will have limited appeal especially if you can play most of the games on the likely cheaper old versions anyway.

Personally right now Nintendo's winning in my book but that's just because I'm frothing at the mouth over Pokemon and Breath of the Wild right now. Xbox is a four-letter word in my house.

by Zanreo at 20th Oct 2016, 2:36 AM

For me too, I'm really hyped for the NX :D

And yeah, never been a huge Xbox fan I must admit...

Since it seems the Q&A will be after the NX big reveal, what does the two others (Microsoft & Sony, of course) think of Nintendo's new innovation/machine/dare-we-say-gimmick? (Edit: Just had a doubt, will post on the Q&A page too just to be sure.)

I tend to forget to check your updates, but the NX announcements sure reminded me!

Ha... Nintendo takes my approach to gaming :P I could care less about what systems are superior, I just want to have fun!

by Zanreo at 20th Oct 2016, 6:05 PM

Me too, I mostly care about what games are fun to play and have interesting concepts rather than how powerful they are
