I take this setting as Takumi trolling the localization team which has been forced thus far to keep up the pretense that the games take place in the US.
The entire business model of TV was built upon the free broadcast distribution of advertisements, with content created to produce a reason to watch. HBO was built as an extra premium tier of content on a paid TV service. What they have done is tacitly acknowledge the fact that promoting wider interest in their content by not sweating piracy widens the potential user base and draws in more subscribers than they would otherwise have.
The important difference is that under an advertising model a show that gets more viewers can charge more. Therefore, ad revenue is a function of raw popularity. Direct-paid subscribers are not a function of raw popularity, just a function of the number of people who are willing to pay for cable+HBO. However, HBO has learned that raw popularity earns more subscribers, which is counter to the general perspective of large scale media companies outside the internet.
Hell, all it’s supposed to do is framegrab your current video output and put that on a separate monitor for side-by-side comparison. That’s completely different from a console with multiple frame buffers, like Wii U.
This patent is for a separate device that splits a single video output to different monitors according to serial port control. I would be shocked if it applies at all.
Given that Norris was a world-level karate champion for half of the 60s, that would actually be extremely fitting.
This is startling.
I think I also know people there.

This is the first Spider-Man game I’ve wanted to play in about a decade. I hope it lives up to the hype.
Oh, you mean the Bungie that backed out of Microsoft because they couldn’t take it anymore? I mean, it’s nice that they were allowed to, but I suspect that’s because there was a threat of mass exodus.
I don’t understand why Walter White would be a summon for Jesse Pinkman and not the main character.
