The OMG! Hour: Episode 89

The One with The Gamerscore Generation

It’s been another interesting week as we learn about Microsoft’s acquisition of the Gears of War franchise and Microsoft takes legal action against some very serious rumors.  Could a white Xbox One with no disc drive be in Microsoft’s future?  Not if GameStop has anything to say about it. We take a look at the interesting inside battle between digital games distribution and the retail market.  We continue last week’s conversation surrounding Nintendo’s current struggles as we learn about where they might be headed after a very important financial briefing this week.  Then, to round out this very long episode, we talk about the Gamerscore Generation.  Trophies vs. Gamerscore; Has the gamerscore mentality gone too far? Does Gamerscore enhance or ruin a game’s longevity?  As always, if you have your own thoughts on anything we talk about in the show, send your thoughts or an MP3 to theomghour@gmail.com.
