PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720/8 Flying to the Cloud with Free-to-Play – Unscripted Access Episode #13

Unscripted Access Episode #13

PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720 (or rumored Xbox 8) to follow free-to-play business model while utilizing cloud technology, Seth Killian takes his talent to Sony Santa Monica, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale to make appearance during 2012 San Diego Comic-Con, and much more gaming news and nonsense that listeners have come to expect with Unscripted Access.

The Gamer Access is back again to discuss the recent acquisition of Gaikai by Sony for $380 million and discuss what this could mean for the next PlayStation and hint at for the next generation of consoles. Could we see the idea of owning a video game console dying off after the next lineup of consoles? Will Gaikai offer more than a gaming restricted experience on PlayStation’s next console? Listen as we go in-depth and discuss what we expect to take place in the upcoming years when Sony and Microsoft hit the market once again to duel it out.

There is much more covered this week on Unscripted Access, but we will leave it to your ears to find out the rest. As always we wrap up the show answering the various questions received from our last episode from our dedicated audience who enjoyed . Unscripted Access commence!

    What is this a nightmare scenario?

    Both systems would fail immediately

    F2P only works for online shooters, and games with ZERO STORY

    It doesnt work for anything else.

    And even saying that most games fail

    The model we have now, is not perfect, but its way way way better

    There will always be physical games

    Like you guys said, as long as people prefer it, and people buy it they will exist

    Nothing is black and white

    we can have physical AND digital

    I want physical. I would stop buying games if I didnt own the game like with digital.

    I love how everyone's personalities clash every week with unscripted access haha. I am very excited to see what Sony does with Gaikai and how soon we will see the technology implemented. I was also shocked to see Killian go to Sony, I agree that I thought he would pull a Bowling.

    As far as cosplay goes. I say:

    Nick: Nathan Drake and if you changed your hairstyle, Guy from Street Fighter

    Anthony: Law and Ryo Hazuki from Shenmue if you buffed up and kicked off the glasses ;ol

    Bronson: Donkey Kong and King Hippo from Mike Tyson’s Punch Out

    Sarah: Lara Croft and Claire Redfield from Resident Evil

    Danielle: Rayne from BloodRayne

    Bridgette: Faith from Mirror's Edge

    haha one of my co-workers said I should cosplay as Lara Croft as well. It's either some really stupid or a Gear cosplay :]

    I also play Ultimate Team (FIFA) and I sometimes when I have money in my PSN wallet I buy Ultimate Team Packs for contracts/injuries/Fitness. I usually earn my players by playing and earning in game coins.

    I still have the 60GB PS3, it broke ones (YLOD) but thankfully they fixed it and gave it back because now it's rare to get back a 60Gig model. They usually give you another model now.

    Does anyone know if Bully ever coming to the PS3? I remember playing Bully on ps2 it was great I really hope they release a sequel or something.

    The only reason I honestly played Resistance 3 Single Player was because of the resistance 2 ending.

    Best prequel was Uncharted 3, I don't know about you but I enjoyed playing as Drake as a kid LOL.

    Happy birthday to both Canada and America! Two awesome countries.

    I think AubreyR asked those questions just for the laughs lol

    Once again, great podcast!

    And I think Eddy Murphy was supposed to play The Riddler. I'm not sure. I don't think he was going to be The Joker.

    Still. That'd be retarded.

    Honestly do not feel Nick could have handled those questions better. I appreciate you for backing me up as well and even I acknowledge that my first comment could be viewed as questionable lol, but at the end of the day, I respect you as a man and understand you have the right to privacy.

    Outside of that, another great show and I really hope microtransactions do not ruin gaming. I am fine with the right games following that way, but most games should remain as they are.

    I also love the idea of cloud gaming as while its nice to have a tangible copy, I feel it is awesome to not have to worry about discs being ruined, lost, and the fact that games can become more powerful with the same hardware from the user's end as the companies will be upgrading everything on their end to enrich the experience.

    Also, HOLY CRAP Nick will be skydiving? I congratulate you Ms. Sarah on being able to convince him to do it and I cannot wait to see it on video LMFAO hahahahahahaha. BTW, not to sound weird, but your marriage statement made me think that I think you two would make a beautiful couple based off each one of your looks :-*

    Onto cosplay I am not the most creative and unique, but feel Nick should do Drake, Sarah can do Jill Valentine, Danielle could portray Alma, Bridget could pull off Talim, Bronson could do Snorlax and lastly Anthony can be Inspector "Tequila" Yuen.

    I personally am not into sports, but to each his/her own and once again thanks again for another great show guys and ladies!

    For the cosplay I would say...

    Nick: If you grow a beard you can do Niko Bellic from GTA IV

    Anthony: Chris Redfield from Resident Evil 5

    Bronson: Scott Shelby from Heavy Rain

    Sarah: Nariko from heavenly Sword

    Danielle: Rayne from BloodRayne

    Bridgette: Kai from Heavenly Sword

    HAHA! Oh my god. Jenny said Broson could be Snorlax. I like this girl.

    I had a feeling Nick would still dodge the questions I asked, but its whatever. To answer your question of why I care, I simply just like to know what goes on "behind the scenes" as you often say and am curious of how you spend your time with the woman off camera.

    If I was one of the woman and had sex with you and you told everyone on the podcast, I honestly would not mind as what is there to be ashamed of?

    I am not offended by any means, but do feel that Nick should open up a lil more and fill us in on everything that goes on, but that's my opinion.

    And yes since everyone seems to bring it up, Nick I do find you attractive and hope to meet you one of these days.

    I love physical consoles and physical games. I want to touch them all over and feel real.

    Gotta love Uncensored *cough* *cough* Unscripted Access! Congrats on over 30,000 listens, you guys deserve more!

    I've only seen pics of Nick, Bridget, Emily, and Sarah so I think that Nick should do Ethan Mars if hair adjusted properly, Bridget as Samantha Byrne, Emily as Farah from Prince of Persia, and Sarah as Alyx Vance

    I just have to say, I love Sarah's Eddie Murphy comment xD. Annnd I agree with Jenny, great minds think alike, I mention we all do different pokemon cosplay on my FB and Bronson asked about the guys, and I asked him if he'd considered Snorlax xDD
  17. Jenny Smith July 7, 2012 | Reply
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA we need to come up with one for Nick, I haven't followed Pokemon since the early days and none of them come to mind.

    Replacement CEO, hmmmmm its tough considering I haven't seen enough of everyone, but if Nick splattered on the ground I would probably say Anthony and Emily from what I have seen and heard from Nick during his praise of Emily.

    I have something for you guys: If your hobby was not gaming, what would it be?

    Questions for the next show:

    1. I forgot her name but she said she beats her games more than once. I remember she said she beat Batman Arkham Asylum 4 times. What makes you want to finish a single player more than once?

    2. Who is the funniest person on the podcast?

    3. What superpower you guys would wish to have?

    4. In your thoughts, what does heaven looks like?

    The gamer that replays the games would be me, Danielle :-) and it's simply to unlock and find everything. That's why in Arkham city a lot of people missed the pregnancy test :P
  21. Danielle Kirk July 9, 2012 | Reply
    I'll explain a bit more on the next show bc replay is pretty important on most games
  22. Wessam July 9, 2012 | Reply
    @Danielle Kirk

    Yeah, please do. I'm interested to hear about this topic. For me I just beat it once for the story and move on but some people beat it more than once for the extra perks. If I was interested to collect everything for the perks i would earn them after i beat the game, try them out and just never play the single player again and just go online. It's different for some people like you so I would be interested to hear what you have to say about it since you're one of those people who beat the SP more than once.

    That's not weird, to be honest with you I was thinking the same thing lol

    Anyways another great episode and I am looking forward to the upcoming episode. Since the shows tend to hover around 3 hours without 10 questions from me, I just have one.

    What is your favorite game to play with a group of people?

    Just thought of a question too btw, Nick would you say you are the same person online during these podcasts and speaking with your staff as you are in person and when you meet up with them at events?
