But, unlike what we would have expected, the game isn’t only going to be sold on the Microsoft store, but also on Steam. With this move, along with the rumors of Game Pass coming to the Switch and with Project XCloud bringing XBox games to mobile, it seems like Microsoft isn’t very interested on controlling the platforms in which it releases its games. Taking this into account, coupled with the fact that the XBox One hasn’t been selling all that much, how likely do you think it is that XBox will just become a third-party developer? - Ignacio Rojas00:22:40 - Borderlands 3!00:24:35 Best Friend Q. - Question whether or not we really need another Borderlands - Alex Russ (Zero Syndicate)00:29:52 Best Friend Q. - Conspiracy theorist Gearbox Software/Xbox - ReclusiveDragon00:32:01 - Jade Raymond Joins Google Gaming, GIB00:34:20 - SEGA Judgement, Sal Romano @ Gematsu00:38:12 - Brendan Greene Speaks!00:42:00 - RUMOR: Sony in talks to buy Take Two00:52:25 - Hims00:53:25 - Out todayReader mail -00:55:30 - When we do get to an all digital future, people say the digital prices will fall, like we saw on pc, but with consoles only having one store front what incentive does the console manufacturers have to actually lower the prices on the games? - Style6501:04:25 - Squad Up: Jonathan Dixon (Xbox) - ZombieJonDixon01:06:26 - You‘re WrongTomorrow’s host:

He said "You're going to kill enemies much faster, but they're going to kill you much faster too, which really puts the emphasis on cover-based gameplay." This was my biggest problem with the original Division, some of the heavies took forever to kill. Greg, you've spent a lot of time hands-on now, do you think this problem has been adequately solved?

I'm happy to see that this content is arriving in a free update which helps to not gate out players from new ways to play. However, they're still selling a $40 season pass to allow access a week early to this content, additionally immediate access to specializations. Now I'm not one to complain about a free addition to a game I'm going to love. But it seems to me there really isn't too much incentive to get the season pass.
