00:32:08 - I was in the open beta for Division 2 this weekend and experienced a lot of audio problems. I wondering if you experienced any of this with your time on the beta and of course your opinions on the game? - Alan Kuhlemier
00:35:05 - The Division 2's game director Julian Gerighty addressed a major concern from the first Division, bullet sponge enemies. 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? Are the heavy enemies and bosses less bullet spongey in your opinion? - Black Jack
00:39:11 - Do you have general tips about managing gaming time while keeping a healthy relationship? - Dan Lima
00:43:27 - What do you guys think about more and more games becoming services and streaming services. Without really owning a physical game? Does it make you worried for collecting game for your library? - Justin Das
00:47:24 - Do you in any way forsee a "gaming financial crisis" occuring in the near future? - Angelos Gambitsis

By chance could the retailers be apart of this? Microsoft has to get them to stock the console. Which requires contracts. For SAD Editon they sell, they lose game sales.
