The Roper Report -
00:06:15 - Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony commit to disclose drop rates for loot boxes, Mekena Kelly @ The Verge
00:09:25 - Rocket League Dumps Loot Boxes
00:12:59 Best Friend Q. - The craziest story of this console generation has to be Rocket League, what with their release as free on PS+ and on Windows all the way back in July 2015. Since then, it has sold over 6 million units, has become a major eSports staple, and is continuously improved upon today by Psyonix. Now, they're removing lootboxes?! We have NEVER heard of this before in a multiplayer game! Could this be a sign that sales are dropping so they want to get good PR now and bump them up? Or is this just the continuation of the Cinderella story? Also, do you think other developers will take the same approach with lootboxes if they see this plan really take off?

00:21:00 - Death Stranding coming to PC? Sherif Saed @ VG247
00:22:29 Best Friend Q. - The official PS4 exclusives page has removed Death Stranding for it's page, this coming off the back of yesterdays new that about an "exclusive new look'" about the game is coming at GamesCom, makes it seem like maybe the "exclusive new look'" is that it's not "exclusive" anymore.
