The Daily Moot: Streamers Ditching Twitch, Xbox vs PS5, and More!

1. Streamers Ditching Twitch

Streamers seem to be having a mass exodus from Twitch and it’s not hard to see why. Although Twitch remains the biggest live-streaming service for gaming, competitors are offering huge contracts to streamers in an attempt to poach them. Shroud, Disguised Toast, and Valkyrae are just a handful of the streamers who have left Twitch. Here’s the crazy part: they all went to different services: Mixer, Facebook Gaming, and YouTube, respectively. As the competing platforms all vie for the biggest names in streaming, the result is some insane contracts with top stars like Shroud and Ninja raking in up to $30M with their deals. Sounds like it’s a good time to be a streamer.

  2. Xbox Boss Says Frame Rate > Resolution   Xbox boss Phil Spencer has reinforced Xbox’s commitment to maximizing frame rates even if it means a decrease in resolution. Although he’s made similar comments in the past, Spencer said of the upcoming Xbox Series X, “The feel of the games [is] definitely something that we wanted to have more focus on, not just throwing more pixels on screen.” While high-resolution gaming certainly seems to be the focus for most companies (PlayStation announced 8k compatibility with the upcoming PS5), it appears Xbox is taking the complete opposite approach. Which do YOU think is more important: frame rate or resolution?

  3. Pokemon Home Details Revealed   Pokemon Home is coming next month and we finally have some more details about the new service. Pokemon Home is an app designed to connect and manage all of your Pokemon needs across games and platforms. An evolution of Pokemon Bank, the new app will allow players to trade, move, and store Pokemon of different games all in one place. Pokemon Home will be available on Switch and Mobile, and will be a subscription-based service starting at $3/month or $16/year.

  4. Dying Light: Bad Blood Free   After revealing that Dying Light 2 has been delayed indefinitely, developer Techland has decided to give Dying Light: Bad Blood to all players for free as an apology. Bad Blood is a battle royale version of Dying Light, where players survive against zombies and each other to become the last person (or team) standing. Although Techland is giving the game to all Dying Light players on all platforms, Bad Blood is only available on PC. You can claim your free copy from Dying Light’s official dockets website.

  5. Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge   Mortal Kombat is getting an all-new animated movie called Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge. The upcoming film will mark the video game’s first foray into full-length R-rated animated films. The movie features many fan favorite Mortal Kombat characters who have to battle to the death in a tournament to save Earth. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think!

    Frame rate is what makes a game run well so i prefer that aswell

  • Senko Da Fox LV.1 Mootie Jan 29, 2020, 10:39 AM

    it also takes more frame rate to run a higher resolution game

  • Username2470 LV.7 Clearly Hacking Jan 31, 2020, 06:33 AM

    frame rate is only good when resolution is not.

    sorry but as a PC gamer I have to disagree

  • PAYNLESS DEATH LV.17 Clearly Hacking Jan 29, 2020, 12:00 PM

    lol i pay a fraction of the price to play a game just as fun on a pc lol

  • DaPi verified LV.28 Champion Jan 29, 2020, 12:04 PM

    Ps5 was leaked to be over $1k. An $800 pc (did all the work myself) can do what the ps5 can do but maybe even better ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • gamer306441406 LV.3 Lurker Jan 29, 2020, 11:47 PM

    that leak was proven fake as soon as it came it will be 399(£)

  • Meh14 LV.3 Lurker Jan 29, 2020, 10:01 AM

    ps4

  • DaPi verified LV.28 Champion Jan 29, 2020, 08:08 AM

    As long as the resolution doesn't go under 1080p it's fine

  • McSmigglesworth LV.29 Wizard Jan 30, 2020, 03:57 AM

    Games look great already imo so frame rate needs to catch up.

  • Lucidem LV.27 Nightmare Jan 29, 2020, 08:37 AM

    Regarding pokemon home.. bit of a scam if I'm honest, but should probably surprise noone.

    Thanks for the updates on the regular Moot!

  • DaPi verified LV.28 Champion Jan 29, 2020, 08:38 AM

    Big scam

  • Lvngz LV.22 Shadow Jan 29, 2020, 10:01 AM

    fram rate>resolution anyday

  • ImFawnze LV.24 Anchor Jan 29, 2020, 10:13 AM

    A fat 10 mil.

  • Cow Boy Billy LV.25 Billy Jan 29, 2020, 10:18 AM

    good frame rate and resolution is needed. without resolution you cant hit as much shots as you should at long/medium range. frame rate is just needed to line up shots and not skip around when you shoot.
    this is why you just need to save up and buy a pc.
