Are welcome back to the -- protects its eleventh -- on the West Coast to twenty out on the East Coast -- we have our correspondent -- around the country for Fox News New York.
Rancho -- -- -- we have -- where that is attributable peninsula down here into the California where the opening.
Digital conference is taking place you can follow us on Twitter on FaceBook of course you can also lights out with this I -- on foxnews.com will be able to.
-- comets and get shots too as well meantime we have a couple of guests here Robert Ford is enormous to have more games of the viewers have watched the show the three years -- had it on.
-- at a lot more -- -- on the table like college on exactly you've got a lot of stuff I don't apologize.
-- -- Look at that out as well as on your right yeah look -- and out of Morgan Webb -- coming -- -- a target it was about.
Well I think games basically -- we had the big show coming up.
-- -- want to explain to viewers about the big show what does it mean why -- -- a big deal on the we know about comic -- how that plays and everything but what's what does this do for the common every person home if you -- -- going on when I care.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- We also have a lot of boos there so as to the -- -- three US that buyers from best buy and Wal-Mart could go -- -- -- the games -- like -- and then to figure out how many meanwhile the -- the next year.
It's really expanded to more than that so a lot of journalists go this is where we get all of our news and -- we bring it to the people at home.
Brett what do you what do you think -- with -- -- a microphone.
At with the way that you were very exciting yet -- -- -- is an exciting -- with the way precinct over the years to become more like comfortable at home it's it's -- it's become more.
I -- senator about what we might see with movies and it's not just as you mentioned buyers going guessing game especially with you know.
-- Circuit City going away and best buy downsizing you know I kind of from.
Stuff well I think -- say -- -- -- and they brought a -- comic is comic con although -- common content.
Has become much more about movies and television shows and properties that involved comics but.
Aren't necessarily you know proper -- if there is still very much about video games and what's important I think for the the developers in the publishers -- Isn't this is their chance to not only against other stuff to -- to the best buys and and to the media.
There's a chance for them to provide information.
To us and to the consumers for the rest of the year sakuma consumers watching our coverage -- -- three this year.
Will pretty much be educated on what's gonna happen for the rest between twelve and then in the beginning -- -- -- so if there is still very much about it.
-- Blair Morgan and that's it misses the top there was G four TV should be able to watch the whole coverage down there be trivial to get down there.
For the smaller segments that we get a chance to do it may bring some of the stuff back here and and -- -- on the table.
I'll I'll ask you could -- we talked about this in the break out what are some of the game to stand out I mean obviously you've got.
Games that are really catered towards different crowds and yes on the kind of overlap as we know as well sitting standing out right now.
Well no actually Canada and we're the last the last gasp of the console cycle and and you know on -- console makers would we hate to hear me say that because they they don't like.
It -- they announce new console -- and stop buying the old console because you know we don't waste your money and another really talk about.
A new console -- you're not expecting that -- name again just.
Hidden -- hey when we're all working on -- right but what they're really gonna focus on -- -- the software because what happens at the end of the cycles they're pushing everything that they can possibly get out of that hardware so we see games.
That we never imagined possible we're gonna see a lot of halo four I mean that's a big game that Microsoft pushing it being made by different studios -- -- -- studios.
It's -- they -- to -- how much the change to obviously keep the same.
What the spirit of it is -- income assassin's creed.
Three and 900 historical perspective which is really exciting and I'm looking forward to you know playing hearing via American -- -- Because that's every child's dream and I am I finally alive that's happened and I'm very day our what do you think what we think about the the console situation because no good as -- keep -- -- -- Fascinating what you do hear about the way you read so many things don't go away I'm not able the other question I have for you is you know with the hope console that you know people have Xbox is at home obvious I have a PlayStation home.
I don't really use it that much cordially for gaming you don't have games -- of my niece and nephews are more than ready for games but you can watch.
Major League Baseball that TV you've got Hulu on their leaders did it become more than just the console.
Are they going away are they gonna be on our computers are mean what what do you think is.
For some are home almost -- -- like my mom was even there they don't actually get want -- -- blues it's a Blu-ray player also the floor is.
One away when he answers yes I think she should -- to support this great industry but I you know it's it's -- -- again -- they're not gonna talk about what's happening next with their consoles although we know the Wii -- is something that we can talk about here in the second but -- -- -- what they are gonna do is they're gonna tell people listen these -- the other things you can do with these consoles because it isn't just about the games this year.
And I think that's with him and be important for us Sony and Microsoft since and -- heard you talk about next generation consoles.
I think they're gonna announce a lot of new partnerships the HBO go stuff and MLB stuff and the fact you can stream games.
Online through their consoles were really big announcements this year so I think we're gonna learn a lot more about what the current generation -- can do outside legislative.
-- of -- were all moving to eventually digital model yet and ripping -- not everybody can have enough -- and let's really make that a realistic proposition in the near future so we know that Microsoft and Sony are really and a fantastic position.
To be a part of that transition so they can support hardware at it during this transitional get you know then -- to pure downloads.
There have been a lot of rumors of the next Xbox is not gonna have a drive.
I personally don't believe that it seems like why would you cut up that part of the market when.
Four dollars a barrel for next and -- -- -- -- -- are gonna see right now convergence brings a lot more on our consoles like and I hunt will be a team out.
It probably will be very soon right and then you know and then we'll be able to probably just get it through the wires all back on their servers and one day and it.
Ten years maybe you know little.
Apple have -- and one of the problem as yet be valuable bandwidth and speed in my I guess that's one of the issues that you will even have a photo on the road -- try to throw open.
They're one of my -- -- -- that I haven't caught up wanted to if it's a night with a hotel office to be crowded.
You know you have right away -- once it there lot of blood uncle would call this -- we'll death.
Wait for the next scene in the show you know so that's obviously won since may keep those hard drives and right.
Absolutely and in -- N router situation is.
With these new gaming consoles I think you're gonna come content partnerships with the Time -- in the Comcast so.
The idea that they wouldn't you know include a hard drive in a box that will allow you to DVR of the content that those people are delivering doesn't make a whole lot of sense playwright I -- America is.
Woefully behind the most of the rest of the world that's you know educated and civilized as far as -- with speeds are concerned right but -- but we're gonna get there some point and I do see a future here in the states in the next 510 years where we we are downloading pretty.
On the ground to cover the other day we got a lot of -- to the head and I certainly think Perry didn't -- -- plays I didn't give ourselves a little break on the.
Absolutely nothing like the Huskers have three guys -- we can because one that's that's the one games is -- the you can make the argument that really crosses all age groups and you have.
People from it at the rest homes playing games to keep active to you know my decent nephew when they -- -- for years old bowling and I got.
Really that really crosses Sony generations what's what's the -- situation.
Good -- and we you know I'd have to say fortunately missing is being middle generation of the more court gamer then and now for example connect -- -- essentially have to -- connect animals which is great for little kids.
They have -- -- fine happy action -- what's also great for kids sitting all console for an -- really aiming to bring.
Contact for all ages and then -- is happening especially especially -- -- good job with.
-- -- and we just and we started that we brought in all these people that -- -- our parents are a little scared of playing the current generation of consoles.
They brought an end but I think everybody's doing a really good job now but because of the Wii U which is that -- and his new thing which we're going to be covering.
The hell lot of I'm sure over the course of the -- is I think something that we that people are gonna need a little more clarification as to what it is because.
A lot of it is just an extension of the week when it is a new console so this is and it's in his new offering.
But we're gonna need to hear more about what it is and you know what they're doing next -- I have a problem with problems -- their branding in the marketing I do worry though that when people see it looks like an iPad with controller on the red.
I feel -- there's going to be a lot of twelve year old who -- just gonna ask for an iPad and yet.
Write and -- this idea and it's awesome it's us in the look at helps me with my whole American something something something that I don't.
-- and maybe maybe Sony did a better job with.
They're placed their PlayStation -- that being able to games with -- smaller more you know kind of it.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- YE three next week you know we start I think on Monday money if -- already three coverage and in the week after that weren't your top 100 videogames of all time -- is in primetime Monday through Friday that we have June 11 -- -- -- -- -- -- 8 o'clock.
Two weeks we're going to be covering nothing but can you.
