Weekend Confirmed 90 - Miyamoto, Live update, Rayman Origins

By Garnett Lee, Dec 09, 2011 11:00am PST

The Weekend Confirmed crew starts getting into the holiday spirit as Jeff, "Indie" Jeff, and Christian sit down with Garnett for this show. The buzz around misinterpretations of Miyamoto's plans for the future and the new Xbox Live dashboard and its mobile apps kicks things off. We know Jeff loves loving things, and it's obvious he's found a new object of his affection in Rayman Origins. No less fun, but definitely fun of a different sort, Saints Row the Third has Christian enjoying the freedom to fool around without feeling like he's missing out on anything. And of course there's your comments and stories, more news, and Finishing Moves to complete the package.

  • It's disturbing to hear Jeff Cannata sell his soul like that on the podcast of the website that originated from Quakeholio. An "open platform" is not a platform where the platform holder holds restriction on what code gets executed. The XBox 360 is not an open platform, nor will its successor be. Same goes for Windows Phone 7.

    Additionally, Windows 8 has me paranoid about the ability to play past and future games that aren't tied into XBox Live, because rumor has it, Microsoft is going to force XBox Live onto Windows 8. What is their stance on third-party game distribution services such as Steam or Direct2Drive? What is their stance on no-DRM indie games, or legacy games with no online authentication service? Stop kissing Microsoft's feet, and start asking the hard questions. Start doing your job as a games journalist.
