everything. >>every saturday, join us for exclusive, revealing and surprising talks with the most interesting people of our time. "talk to al jazeera" saturday 5 eastern only on al jazeera america >> this is al jazeera america. live from new york city. i'm david schuster with a look at today's top stories. president obama with a plan to fight the islamic state group. and in ferguson, missouri, one month after michael brown was shot to death, his family is renewing the demand for the arrest of the officer who pulled the trigger.
and another american has brought to atlanta for treatment. >> we begin this hour at the white house. the president briefed them on the plan to displantin dismantle the islamic state group. the president is set to address the nation tomorrow night and there is ever are polls that americans are becoming hawkish about the situation.
give us a sense of what was discussed, and this idea that the president told lawmakers he doesn't need their authority. what is that about? >> reporter: that's the biggest take away because if congressional leaders had met with the president today, the top congressional leaders had prepped him saying they want a vote. he may have opened up that option. however, it's politica politically riskry to vote on the airstrikes in iraq because they face midterm elections in just eight weeks. so it's safer for republicans and democrats over in congress and the white house may be able to go in the direction it chooses. you may hear grumbling, but so far leaders are not putting up a fight. what the president is saying if you would like to take a vote, you're welcome because that will
show unity. minority leader nancy pelosi, the top democrat i in the house has drawn a strategy. we heard republican john boehner not using the "s" word, strategy, but laying out some ideas. an as we hear from the house speaker he's saying that he does support the house president with objectives like defeating and destroying the islamic state. >> you've got the congressional support from boehner and mcconnell, if the president
wants authority, he'll get it from the american public. have we heard more if it from the oval office, the east room, how is that going to work? >> reporter: just where the president delivered that speech from creates significance of how it will look to the american public. it will come from the house floor, and why they're making it a primetime evening speech. >> this is a high national security. when you have a priorities like this that emerge it's important for the american people to understand what progress we've made so far. the progress we've made so far is important and substantial. >> the white house is also saying that this isn't just about military actions even as we hear folks like speaker boehner having a muscular approach to iraq and syria, it will take a coalition of
nations. john kerry heading to the nation. there is a hope that they can get the international body around the globe but also specifically in the middle east to support what the white house is doing. it's not the white house going alone. there are lessons learned from the iraq war. one that we can't be left in iraq at the end of this, and there won't be combat troops that the white house is saying and that it needs to be an international effort. >> we'll have more on the politics of the president's position on the islamic state at 6:30 eastern time. the leader of an influential syrian rebel group may have been killed in an attack. syrian state television reports 554 people were killed in the city, it took place during a meeting of leaders. syrian state television reports it was al sham leader was
killed. but they say he was injured. >> reporter: the al sham groups in 2012, two main islamic groups were fighting against bashar al-assad at that point. the al sham are more moderate, they simply didn't like a woman asking questions. it seems they've been fighting both against the bashar al-assad crops and the islamic state fighters in recent months. this has th the hole hallmark of isi fighters. >> iraq's new government one day after the parliament approved its formation, key roles still have not been filled. we have more now from baghdad.
>> reporter: foyer iraqi political leaders it wasn't easy getting to this point. but now the really hard work begins. iraq's new government is a work in progress. carefully constructed to balance shia, sunni and kurdish interests. pulling out answer o any one of those pegs could topple the governmen government. >> sunnies say they're happy with their ministries but they also have their high expectations. >> we need to assure them that this government will be for all iraqis. it will serve the people of anbar as well as the people. >> reporter: under intense pressure in presenting the cabinet on monday.
he made clear he hadn't chosen most of them. they were the result of negotiations between the various political blocks. this government has not had the most promising start. people are pretty skeptical about what it can achieve. but it's something to build on and it continues the conversation between the different groups that need to work together in this country to survive. and even that might not be enough. he struggles to support five children with his fruit stand. >> for the past eight years we've had a coalition governme government. it may many mistakes and reflected badly on the iraqi streets. as a consequence you can see how the country is going. we've lost six provinces. >> reporter: he said people are not asking for much.
>> yes, there is corruption but on the other hand they'll give you your share. but officials steal from you and don't leave you with anything. >> reporter: it's a tough road ahead for the iraqi government. it will also have to persuade iraqis of all kinds it cares about them. >> a fourth american infected ebola is now back in the united states receiving treatment. the patient is at emory university hospital in atlanta. that is the same facility where two others were successfully fleeted for the virus last month. robert ray has more now from atlanta. >> reporter: another day of dire warnings from the international health community urging calls for action. the numbers of ebola, infections continuing to rise and the death toll seemingly out of control as another american lands here in atlanta. >> a four infected aid worker
landed in atlanta. >> based on the patient's conditions we'll decide what the best options are. >> unlike the two first patients in emory who survived this rick will not receive the experimental serum zmapp. >> i think its hard to say. it's hard to make an assessment based on two patients 1234 on monday an emergency conference in washington, d.c. brought ebola experts together in the wake of the "world health organization" prediction of thousands of new west african cases in the coming weeks. >> this has changed the perception that the virus can replicate and spread to wide areas. and different country. >> reporter: this is the worst ebola outbreak in history.
over 2200 have died, and the numbers they keep rising. public health officials are concerned about the lack of resources, infrastructure, doctors, and aid workers on the ground in west africa. >> you know, it would be jus just--if you look at the past, this has never happened. >> reporter: congress is considering an obama administration request for more funding to combat ebola. while there is now a vaccine in phase one in clinical trials there is a feeling that time is running out with an urgent call to to action. >> the disease was identified in remote villages of our country have now reached urban centers including the capitol. it is now spreading like wildfire. >> on tuesday the u.s. announced
it will be building isolated treatment centers and sending military engineers and medical staff to assist in liberia, certificat sierra leone and guinea. >> reporter: they say the isolation room could easily be expanded. there could be up to 20,000 deaths in the next six to nine months and folks are expecting the possibility of more patients crossing the atlantic and being treated here in atlanta. >> investigating the respiratory illness in children, but it's not clear if these new cases are associated with virus 68. children across the country have contracted that virus. cases are popping up in michigan
and end. they say it starts off as a cold but becomes very serious very quickly. michael brown's death sparked weeks of protests and tension and talks of race. again, there are talks for the arrest of darren wilson, the police officer who killed their son. >> he should be arrested, he should be booked, fingerprinted and photographed. at that point we should then wait and see what the grand jury does with the rest of the charge. that step should not be skipped especially in light of the fact that you have upwards of six people that say that mike brown jr. had his hands up in the air. >> prompted by the unrest in ferguson, senators in washington led by claire mccaskill are looking at the militarization of police. critics say in the st. louis area last month looked like they
were in a war zone and that police may be overequipped. for the first time since brown's death ferguson council board will meet tonight. they have been criticized as unfairly targeting low income blacks. figures show in 2014 ferguson had the highest number of warrants issued in the state. there were 1500 warrants issued for more than 1,000 people far above st. louis and kansas city. we spoke with jonathan clark who is a blogger in st. louis, and does news analysis politics in calendar. how will this help request these proposed changes to local orderein order ordinances are
just proposals. asking that they provide solutions for underlying cues for races, social and class divisions that exist there. to the extent there is community input you would imagine that there would be a certain level of satisfaction so far about the direction that the city is moving trying to address some of the underlying causes to what we saw last month. >> it sounds like that deals with the short term action, the plans and city councils improving them. what about the long term. do you see anything long term change there? >> it's important to understand that ferguson is just one community. the big mistake that i fear that many people have been making so far is to see ferguson as this isolated community, this isolated incident where only these things exist measurely in
ferguson. that's just not the case. there are communities that surround ferguson that is in the same predictabl predicament that ferguson is in. they wind up coming up--they have no tax base and they come up with these solutions to generate revenue. which usually surround traffic tickets and the disproportiona disproportionately affect people who are disadvantaged, poor, and under privileged. >> 1500 warrants issued for 1,000 people. were you surprised? will it get at some of that issue in terms of african-americans being targeted? >> what's really going to look at these communities that have no way to generate income.
what that needs to happen, you need to have these communities and in many instances consolidate. hopefully this will be the spark that gets this conversation going. >> a new report from the netherlands safety board confirms the malaysian flight that went down in eastern ukraine did not crash because of a mechanical problem. the board statement relying o-- ing. tim friend reports now from the the hague. >> reporter: it does not say that it was hit by shrapnel but rules out any other possibility. the plane pierced by what the
report calls high energy objec objects. everything stopped at the same moment. wreckage was spread over 10 kilometers. >> at this moment we're investigating the objects that penetrated the aircraft. we found fragments of probably the fragments in the bodies, especially the flight crew, we're trying to investigate whether they originating from the aircraft or other objects. >> they're investigating whether the plane was brought down by a buk missile. that was denied. >> reporter: 03 sides had this weapon, so crucially further investigation here will try to establish the exact launch area
by using satellite and radar. the crash seen is in a conflict zone and investigators have been prevented from direct access. some human remains remain in the wreckage and for families it goes on. >> for me it doesn't matter if it was shot down or it's the fault of malaysian airlines, i blame malaysian airlines and the others who mated the plane crash, of course. it cannot bring our children back here. >> reporter: a full report and a separate criminal investigation has begun. tim friend, al jazeera, the hague. >> american families torn apart from deportation. we'll hear from children, u.s. systems and how the u.s. up gas station system is ripping their parents away from them. >> i'm jake ward in california. apple is asking for a new level of trust from you.
>> there is growing outrage in the hispanic community over president obama's decision to delay action on immigration reform for another two months. today 30 children born in the united states traveled from florida to washington, d.c. calling for help because they say their families are being torn apart. lisa stark reports. >> reporter: these are some of the faces behind the heated immigration debate. children, all american citizens who have lost a parent to deportation. a parent who was an undocumented immigrants. they held an emotional news conference on capitol hill to tell their stories. >> my father was deported just for not having a license. it's been hard for me because it had to be like a father for my siblings. i don't like seeing my baby
sister asking where is her father. >> an estimated 150,000 children have had a parent deported in fiscal year 2012 alone. >> all across america we have 11 million families suffering. justice cannot wait. >> reporter: lawmakers who support changes to immigration law say there are consequences to inaction. >> kids like the ones here with me today whose lives have been turned around and upside down and their families destroyed by the administration's deportations. >> reporter: president obama did issue an executive order to allow those brought here illegally as children to stay in the country for now, but that does not apply to undocumented parents, and now the white house said it will not take further action on immigration until after the november election. >> this issue is viewed as a political minefield, but for these children it's not
political but personal. jason garcia has not seen his father for two years. his mom tells him to pray for his dad. >> i want my dad to come home. and i wish he could come back home. i want to give him a hug when he comes back. >> jason does not know when that day will come. lisa stark, al jazeera, washington. >> today we got our first look at apple's new technology. the iphone 6, the apple watch and apple k, a method that apple said will be the most secure way to pay for your purchased. al jazeera's science and technologist specialist jacob ward here to tell us more about the watch, tell us about it. >> reporter: it was really the headliner of this event, and the faithful here in the hall you see behind me in cupertino. they've been waiting for a new
cool category. they got it with the iwatch. it incorporates a new interface. it involves the iphone and involves the crown. this is how tim cook described it. >> when you turn the digital crown it some zooms in and out. when you have a lift you can scroll through the list, you can do all of this without blocking. and if you're within an app like the clock app, from for exampl for example, if you press the digital crown will "t" will return to the home screen just as you expect it to be. >> a who nouvea new new
vocabulary for the apps. >> is there a question of security with pool being able to buy things. with a do you make of the new apple pay system. >> it's the separate headline. it opens up an entire new stream and involves one-time tokens exchanged between your phone and retailer that don't in theory involve your credit card data. here's how the head of services described the limited risk. >> if your iphone is lost or stolen you can use "find my iphone" and suspend all payments from that device. again because the credit card is not stored on the device there is no need to cancel your credit card. >> now in theory it shouldn't matter that apple is rolling this out. google has had this technology since 2012. but apple has more credit cards
on final than amazon and ebay combined. the incredible number of people who are going to be able to buy this phone and buy coffee, gas and beer with this thing, it will be an outstanding number. >> apple share is up 3%. what is it that apple now has that will give it a competitive boost? >> reporter: normally we think of the question of hardware, who has the cooler phone. how many more are sold? apple is going to be taking a cut of the revenue that comes to it when you buy small items, and who knows what other kinds of business that leads to. they've been talking about a partnership with target, it's a question of how much money they'll make just off apple pay alone. >> great stuff as always. thank you. president obama is trying to
drum up support for a plan to defeat the islamic state group. he'll make a pitch to the american people tomorrow night. it all comes at a crucial moment for his presidency and his democratic party. we'll take a closer look at that next. and a potential break through in spotting and treating autism, why starting treatment before the age of one could be the answer. that's coming up.
reportedly said that based on the mission he intends he has the authority to act even if congress does not want to take a tough political vote on the issue. the president's focus on the islamic state comes at a critical moment. according to a "washington post" released today only 42% of americans approve of the way he is handling his job. 51% disapprove. those are near the worst numbers of his presidency. when asked about mr. obama's leadership only 43% say mr. obama is a strong leader. 55% say he is not a leader. those are the worst leadership numbers of his presidency. when it comes to international problems and dealing with the islamic state and israel, 50% say he has been too cautious. 8% too aggressive, and 35% say his approach has been about right. he has authorized limited airstrikes in iraq. but the administration has faced increasing calls to expand the
u.s. military role not just in iraq but in syria. and the public's hawkishness about talking islamic state in syria is growing. when asked specifically about airstrikes in syria, 65% would support the action. only 28% is opposed. michael shure, always great to see you. first of all, the hawkishness of the public, the percentage supporting pop airstrikes against syria, what do you make of it, and what does it mine politically? >> reporter: if you look at the numbers you just brought up. if the public is behind it, and the president acts, tomorrow is about acting whether it consults congress or not, then you expect those numbers to come together with the president if he's doing when they want him to, then those numbers go up. but he seems unflappable when it comes to what the public perception and some of those
questions how the president is doing is up 42%, which is shocking because the gallup poll has him in the high 30s. this is not necessarily turning into an election about barack obama. as some republicans thought it would, and a lot of us thought it would. a lot of this is how it's playing out locally and foreign policy has not been something that plays in states as other issues. this is an area where the president is weak and you can expect the republicans to pounce. >> this could possibly become an election issue. the president told the lawmakers he doesn't need their authority. that's almost like saying you don't want to take a tough vote before the election, that's fine, don't do it. >> it would neutralize the subject if he were to say that he was going to go to congress. i spoke with one one congressman
today who tell me they do not expect him to seek consultation from congress. more people than we generally see are thinking well maybe the president is going to consult us. i wouldn't count on that. again, that's something that he could do that would gain him a little campaign currents. >> you talked about the approval rating but low in the grand scheme of things, what does that do to democrats who are looking at a tough race in november? >> listen, the democrats who would run with barack obama are not going to start running with him because it goes up to 47 or 49%. you have mark pryor. kay hagin is not going to see him in north carolina. you're not going to see president obama much on the trail. maybe in michigan. but what the democrats have done is taken obamacare as an issue away. a lot of republicans candidates in some of these states, tom
cotton are turning to the president's weakness on foreign policy. i think that's where it comes in, but i don't see anybody putting their arms around barack obama. >> as you pointed out repeatedly, democrats would love to knock off mitch m mcconnell. and now going after mcconnell for missing a certain number of committee hearings. is that the sort of thing that would work in kentucky and what do you make of the race there? j i don't think it's an exciting subject. it would work in kentucky in a louisville city council race where somebody missed a handful of votes. you not on mitch mcconnell. he is the minority leader of the senate. he's the minority leader of the senate. he'll miss votes. people expect that. that race, i think, is about as tight as it's going to be. i don't think there are enough
enough--this is not something that you hear a lot, you hear about rhinos, but the dinos have to come out in favor of grimes. they're either not going to vote for grimes or come home to mcconnell. that's the place where they've been before. it will be tough for grimes. kansas and georgia, those are two races that democrats don't expect to have a lot of air and they're finding it in both those races. >> georgia is another place where democrats hope to exploit a gender divide. women prefer democrats over republicans. is that enough in a place like georgia or colorado, again, featuring pretty crucial senate races where the issue of women's rights have been front and senator. >> they're a little bit different in georgia than colorado. some of the issues affecting colorado is the president's stand on immigration and the fact that he's not doing thing hurt senator udahl there.
i don't think he'll lose that race. i think you gain currency no matter what. if you want him to do something on immigration, you don't go out and be critical of the president saying i want to do something about immigration. so it works for him there. but the women's votes in georgia, the numbers i saw are really striking. i think that's going to be a real boon. i think it will help jimmy carter's grandson in the race. >> thanks for coming on. >> david, thanks so much. >> the public approval ratings of president obama even on foreign policy are increasingly important. just eight weeks before the midterm elections. it could drag down democrati democratic candidates. what are the wedge issues focused on is raising the minimum wage. we talked about kentucky with michael s hure. mitch mcconnell has come under
fire, say going to he becomes majority he's going to block the bill on minimum wage. tom cotton supports raising the hourly rate. caught someone dead evening dependence tom pryor. the debate over the keystone oil pipeline is taking center stage. pirates is associated with a wealthy environmentalist, so peters is now facing this. >> peter sided with the california billionaire who would profit if the pipeline is blocked. now that billionaire is spending big bucks to help peter's campaign. michigan jobs or a california billionaire. >> the poll shows peters with the slight edge. and in minnesota senator al franken is hammering mike mcfadden for using offshore
tax loopholes. >> that's right. he uses a special tax loophole to list his headquarters offshore and avoid paying millions of dollars in taxes in america. mike mcfadden, he's definitely not for you. >> and two political races, football, yes, football is now the big story this week. in virginia incumbent senator mark warner is taking credit for the virginia tech hokeys for joining. >> tech, i live by three simple words. vote mark warner. no one did more to get virginia tech in the acc than him. he said it was the best thing ever to happen in tech athletic the. in the illinois governor's race involving former chicago
bears coach mike ditka taking shots at mike quinn. so ronner appeared in an ad with ditka for encouragement. >> you know what i like about you, bruce? you're tough. you tackle special interests. bam, hit 'em right in the mouth. >> but rauner is behind by double kingdoms. there is a report that the use of torture may get pushed back beyond the election. memories of the senate intelligence committee are considering a delay in the release of the report five years in the making. republicans have long opposed the investigation and the report. key senate democrats believe that they have gone to far in redacting certain sections of the report. dianne feinstein, quote, we're still discussing redactions, and it won't be released until we're satisfied that we can have a comprehensive and understandable report.
finally bill clinton and george w. bush got together last night for a public discussion on leadership. the two ex-presidents have become pretty close friends and they were very complimentary to each other. and bush joked about becoming a grandfather. >> it will be awesome for you. and yes, get ready to be like the lowest person in the pecking order in your family. >> and that the day's power politics. >> david, just past midnight missouri is expected to execute it's eighth prisoner. convicted in the 1998 robbery and double murder at a restaurant where he used to work. his lawyer filed several appeals that are being considered today. one of them involves questions about the deadtive he's expected to receive prior to the
execution. an one and a half-year-old boy was asleep when a flash grenade went off in his playpen. the police were looking for a suspected drug dealer when they flew the grenade in the house. the boy has gone through several surgeries since the raid in late may. the mayor announced a deal after months of negotiations. the agency provides water for 40% of michigan population, the suburbs will pay detroit $50 million a year for the next four decades to rebuild the water and sewer system. no. wisconsin there is a new playground that is not for kids. this playground in lacrosse county is for adults only, and is more than a gym than anything else, complete with a pull up station and other exercise equipment. the goal is to give people an incentive to stay active. >> this is a way to give people an opportunity to be activity that is different. we're out here in the environment. on a beautiful jogging or
walking path. this is a way to add more physical activity without making it feel like a chore. >> a grant helped pay for the playground which is free to use. >> some of that looked kind of painful. i'm just saying. >> it's not painful. >> ray rice already lost his job after video surfaced showing him punching the woman who is now his wife. now he's losing endorsements. plus a closer look at domestic violence and new numbers showing it cost the world 8 trillion-dollar a year. @
punching his fiancé. now he's losing endorsements. an electronic art said he it will remove rice from its madden game. janay, his wife, responded. she said she felt they was mourning the death of her closest friend. she went on to defend her husband and blast the media for causing pain to the couple. >> people come privately. there are issues, it's not the first time that it's usually happened. it's usually the first time that they're airing it or finding voice. but it's also about finding safe space. if you air it, your children are in trouble, your husband is in
trouble, and the woman is looking for her own stability. there are not enough safe spaces to go to. you try to counsel them and hug them and embrace them so they feel what love really feels like thin they listen. they need to share their story. i was recently with one of my drivers who witnessed his father abusing his mother as a child. he witnessed it as five years old. the traumatic affect that it had. he said for the first five years in school he didn't speak. so his school put him into what they called the 600 class because they thought he was not capable of learning. the woman will feel, if i air this, what will happen to my family. >> once a victim talks to you about the stability they want, how often then once they get that outdo they actually leave their husband?
again, the statistics are astounding about the number of people who choose to stay. >> it's staggering and astounding. they stay for many reasons. many because it is their security. it is a person that they trust. many find that they are the victim, yet they sometimes feel that they were responsible for the victimization. there are many reasons that go to that. the counselor can refer to them long term to a psychologist or psychiatrist. people who are trained for domestic violence for their lifetime. a lot of times we're in the listening mode and referral mode, referring them to a safe place to talk. >> besides the staggering report that domestic violence hurts economic productivity in a way that shocks so many people. is this an issue that many of us are overlooking. >> it effects us in terms of economics, but nothing is good. it's never acceptable.
no matter what the value doctor is attached it's never acceptable. there are effects that you cannot put a dollar on. there is domestic abuse the other way. there are men abused as well. i was with the police department for 21 years. when you walk in and you see a family who has been abused, and first of all its sickening to your stomach. number one, just the optic of what is happening, whether it's black eyes, broken bones, and then you have psychological effects that cannot be measured. it's a dollar that you cannot put a dollar on. i think what man we saw historically we saw what domestic violence really looked like. when people weren't slaves, my culture, who they were with. that was the beginning of transferring it generationally. the way to express your anger,
punish was to punish them physically. it started really there with our culture. >> domestic violence victims are sharing their stories on social media using the #why i stayed. >> reporter: we first told but this hashtag trending last night and the conversation has only grown with powerful messages from domestic violence victims. most of them women. like jenny, why i stayed. because he said he would kill himself if i left. and cassandra writes, because he promised he would change. i was embarrassed to tell my family that i was a victim. and another writes, i was scared of what he'd do to me if he found me. hashtag why i left. he threatened to kill me and
kidnap an my children. why i stayed, i thought i deserved the bruises. why i left, it was either die or runaway. i chose to run. >> appreciate it. india and pakistan are struggling to help hundreds of thousands of people stranded by the worse flooding in years. more than 400 people have been killed in both countries. rescue workers are trying to reach hundreds of thousands of people stranded in hard hit areas. most have been airlifted to india controlled kashmir. wet monsoon weather is making things worse. floodwaters are not expected to recede for days. semi year i can'nigeria's and cameroon's dispute over areas where many remain hopeless and stateless. we go to the my year gentlema
nigeria and cameroon area. >> the situation is unbearable. we don't know how to clothe our children, how to bathe them, feed them. >> they have to share this classroom with 12 other families. this is what has become of the people who left their homes in the disputed peculiar peninsula. an once thriving initial be fishing community. cameroon took control of the area, and most of the population consider themselves nigerian. people hearsay they fled due to attacks by cameroonian security forces. 1,000 families have been crammed into two schools in the village near the border since march last year. they share two toilets. they have to shower in the bush.
the men can no longer fish so they do menial jobs. >> reporter: they are meant to received $30 a month stipend from the government. the people say they have not seen money in 20 months. the state relief agencies say they have been providing healthcare, education. >> we look forward to the federal government of nigeria, the budget is beyond the capacity of the state government. >> reporter: they have been keen to teach the children the history of their land. they have memorized it by heart. >> sometimes i feel like we went out. we did not carry anything. >> reporter: abigail poured her pain into a poem. >> this night, they are still
visible. >> reporter: and it's the future of her grandchildren that she worries about. she can't cope with raising them alone. the territorial disputes appear on paper, but it's leaving generations of lost people behind. al jazeera, southeastern nigeria. >> coming up on al jazeera america half a billion dollars to capture the market. one video game company is betting it's blockbuster budget can corner the industry, that's next. and then it's real money with ali velshi. >> reporter: coming up, america's economy may never return to what we thought was normal before the great recession. i'll tell i couldn't. and how the death of the m mcmansion gave birth to homes of a whole different size. all that and more on real money.
>> a new study shows a dramatic decrease in autism symptoms if they are treated very early. the study was done on seven babies as young as six months old. researchers at the university of california davis said parents engage babies directly, teach them face-to-face interaction and alternative through repetitive hand movement. by age four all children involved showed no signs of autism. many gamers is a da, this is a day they have been waiting for. the company that created the game spent $500 million. the most expensive game ever. >> reporter: stephen has a date with destiny. the destiny in question is a video game. the date, the 9th day of the 9th month, it's worldwide release. >> it's a rewarding game.
classic good versus evil and call to action is that the player is the guardian, and the guardian is pushing back darkness. that's something that everybody can relate to. >> reporter: everybody in the gaming world. for them the hype has been building for months. "destiny" comes from the company "halo." it's online trailers look like movies. paul mccartney wrote the music, and it's budget $500 million is the highest ever for a game. >> it's a huge risk. they don't expect to make their money back just over this game. they expect to have several see equals over the next ten years. >> reporter: at a shopping center in sydney, the game debuted at midnight. but before that was the countdown, the cake and the cue. >> to get the game going. get it it, i can't wait.
>> it's finally here. >> i woke up thinking today is the day. >> what makes this game special? it has the first-person shoot 'em up like halo and the game like world of war craft and it's set in an ever changing online gaming space with players worldwide cooperating and competing. >> people don't have to come at me, they're here to bond with the community, and make friends. >> some like to be around a community in console lounges like this even as they play. >> it is the community within the game tha that is most important for "destiny." when millions are playing simultaneously. whether this is destined to be the most successful game ever. andrew thomas, al jazeera, sydney. >> a new collection of stories from the legendary dr. seuss is
