Pokemon Go has a rough launch, but are we crazy about it? (CNET's Open_Tab)

Culture
[MUSIC] What do you guys now about Pokemon Go? [LAUGH] You know way more than you're- [CROSSTALK] I'm not a Pokemon fan. You're a Dragon Ball guy. I'm a Dragon Ball guy, yeah. Couldn't you tell, everybody? Just by looking at him. My Krillin cut. So do you know anything about Pokemon Go? All I know is there was a story earlier this week. It was actually the first thing I'd heard about Pokemon Go was that the Darwin police department in Darwin Australia northern territory where I've been to, cuz everyone in australia has been to everywhere in australia. But they said you [LAUGH] No no no. But they said that, they issued a warning.>> Yeah.>> If to people saying if one allowed to go into the down police department or the police stations to get your Pokemon charaters.>> All right.>> So if the Ap if they wanna let in. Surely they'd say, don't go into stranger's houses or don't go off cliffs, no don't go into the police station. Yeah, okay, Australia doesn't really have a lot of problems I guess. [LAUGH] Expect something that surface to the top. So here's what Pokemon Go is. It's a mobile game that uses AR. Augmented reality. Augmented reality, which means you're holding up your phone's camera in the world around you and they're sort of like putting, they're placing Pokemon around areas in the real world. And you have to like flick out the ball, the Pokemon balls. Am I saying that right?>>I guess so.>>I don't know anything about Pokemon.>>I know my son would go crazy if they had a Yokai.>>What ever that is.>>He loves Yokai.>>Oh okay.>>You know the Yokai watch is Yokai.>>Right I forgot to get one. So that's the thing. A lot of people are complaining that it doesn't work though. Everyone is calling it Pokemon. Stop. Really. Yeah, because like the servers are having issues connecting. God. We were talking about today. My buddy Russ was only able to hook into it, like twice, yet set up a username and that's it. Not enough money to keep the servers going. I don't know if that's what it is. Instead of Pikachu, brokachu. This is not a great launch for that brand. And I feel like It's been a rough. It's been a rough couple of years. Man. Not just. Well, Pokemon's been all right, but like the Nintendo sort of brand has taken a bit of a beating. The Wii U was supposed to sell 100 million copies. Well, that's just what one person. And there was 12. [LAUGH] They sold 12 million of the things. Well, 12 million's a lot. Sure. That's a lot. Prefer that I guess. Anyway. Let us know what you think down- [CROSSTALK] Would you buy a Wii U if it was on sale on Amazon Prime for a hundred bucks. I'd buy it for 99 bucks. So that would be the going rate. You heard that Amazon, a hundred bucks. We got advice from Mr. Cook and Mr. Basil. Take note. [MUSIC]
