@DannyBoi Not so sure. Also, nintendo japan privated both 14.02.2019 and 14.02.2014 directs from their playlist.

@xpownz Sooo, a mini Direct dropping tomorrow and making old ones private to stop people watching wrong ones? It’s interesting timing as it would be a Friday.

@FragRed The Directs were 13.02.2019 and 13.02.2014 respectively for outside Japan so if they are going the drop a Direct Mini strategy it would be tonight.

Personally, I'm expecting that it's preparation for an Animal Crossing Direct next week (the playlist includes single game Directs).

I just want to hear xeno1hd piano again. That's all I want from a direct

I'd kinda like to see a Nintendo Direct soon as at the very least I want a release date for Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition. I'm not in a huge hurry though; my backlog is meaty enough as it is, plus there are plenty of retail Switch games I want to grab.

Currently playing: Dragon Quest VIII (3DS), Ori and the Blind Forest (Switch), Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Maybe we need some psychic to tell us Nintendo’s plans. Is Miss Cleo still available?

Honestly, more than a release date I just want to know if they'll have a special edition for XC:DE with the full soundtrack included.

Is there any particular reason they need to be on tuesday/wednesday/thursday?

We seem to just have decided they should be. Is there any particular reason they can't have them on a Saturday?

Maybe less media at work to report on it. But then again, more people free to watch it.

I don't get this interest over soundtracks at all. The whole thing is on youtube for free already. And if they redo any of the tracks, those will be on youtube within a week of launch.

Some of us want soundtracks in lossless quality and are willing to pay for it.

@Dezzy That's pretty much exactly why from what we can tell. They used to do them on any day of the week back when they first started, but they seem to have decided that pissing off news outlets by suddenly making them work overtime on weekends wasn't worth it lol

I do remember back then there tended to be less or slower coverage, especially on weekend directs.

EDIT: Also yeah, what Rexenokid said. Plus, I like being able to own and rip tracks (legally), and put them on other devices. Plus then I don't need internet to listen (like in the car on my frequent work trips)

How do we know the playlist updated?

Destiny, justice and retribrution will be mine.

Rexenokid

@DannyBoi
Go to the youtube page and click playlists. It says right there when each playlist was last updated.

DannyBoi

When their playlist is updated, how soon does the direct come?

Destiny, justice and retribrution will be mine.

Dezzy

@Rexenokid

Well no digital music is technically lossless though is it? Encoding something digitally necessarily creates a loss of accuracy.

I really can't hear the difference myself.

@Dezzy Mmm well, yes and no. It's possible to store any frequency by sampling at a rate of twice what it's at.

Lossless just means it's stored with reversable compression, as opposed to Lossy, which is irreversable without changes.

But combine a sample rate that's as twice as high as the best speakers with a lossless storage system and you have the top quality music possible.

@Dannyboi Anywhere between later that day and 4-5 weeks out.

Edit: a better example might be images. JPEGs are Lossy, so they have artifacts when you look at them, the more compressed the more artifacts. PNG are lossless, so the image is always the same as expected. But neither has as much detail as the image does in real life.

@link3710

Yeah I wasn't aware that was the actual definition of what Lossless meant. I guess the old .wav files on standard CDs are technically Lossless then.
I was trying to be smart rather than checking the actual definition! Lol.

@Dezzy
Link3710 gave a good explanation but it's not only the lossless quality that matters to me. I love soundtracks! Especially the Xenoblade ones. I also like to support the developers of things I love. Downloading music from YouTube is pirating and I don't do that. I feel very strongly about that.
