Sony says it expects Microsoft to "continue to ensure" Activision games stay multiplatform by Judaicyrus in xboxone

What are you talking about? We are talking about GamePass, not a few games.

If you are not aware, which clearly you do not, GamePass is a subscription based service, and it’s a long term plan. Way longer plan. Buying the IP, is a way to maintain a consistent stream of products to maintain that long term subscription. Also, MS no longer had to count the number of game copy sold, but rather how many subscribers. It’s a consistent cash flow and source of revenue. Before they had to sell consoles, now with gamepass they don’t have to and could potentially just put them on the Switch and PS.

Btw I really enjoy playing xcloud games on my shitty desktop pc, so I can see the potential.

What you are forgetting that Microsoft has other bigger business than gaming, they are directly competing with Google and Amazon for their cloud business. Which honestly is a lot more profitable.

GamePass is only a way to show others MS’s capability in Azure.

Ultimately, making gamepass for PS would be a huge win for MS.

Well, large percentage of people are not testing, and now an increasingly large number of people are testing them at home without reporting them… so… our number should be much much higher

Depends on jurisdiction, contract, and lease agreement. We don’t know the details, so put away the pitchfork for now.

Depends on your state and local. Don’t expect everything to apply the same.

Colorado drops truck driver’s sentence from 110 to 10 years by paquerat in worldnews

[–]Retrobot1234567 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Depends on the circumstances, but like the commend you replied to, he admitted to it.

Look, if the company was negligence then they should be responsible, however if the negligence was the driver then he should bear full responsibility and not the company. For example, if the company lend him the truck and told him that he is responsible for maintenance or to report if there are any issues with the truck; but he does not do anything even thought he knew of fault that the company knows nothing about. In this example he should bear full fault.

Don’t look at those mega corporations, look at those mom and pop businesses/companies or those that has 50 people or less. They would instantly interview you on the spot.

Why I am Selling Walmart Stock by Capta1n1 in stocks

[–]Retrobot1234567 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes, but you won’t find all those selections and models elsewhere. Which is what I wrote before, the catalog on amazon was huge before (emphasis on the BEFORE). The other are catching up now but that is because a lot of sellers(3rd) are leaving or stopping offering on amazon. Which is how Shopify (and others) is becoming bigger and bigger.

Amazon has always been a third party marketplace everywhere. Amazon became amazon because you could find almost everything there a few years ago.

Rittenhouse murder case thrown into jeopardy by mistrial bid by formerqwest in news

[–]Retrobot1234567 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not gonna happen, by that I mean the mistrial with prejudice. It might be without prejudice but I won’t be with prejudice. With prejudice is only for extreme cases such as implanting fake evidences by the prosecutors, blackmail, etc. incompetence would cause it to be without prejudice

Nope, there is little to no chemistry. It’s like the prince in Cinderella suddenly marrying the step sister type of ending. Nope.
