Fred is joined by Andy of 42 Level One to discuss what yesterday’s presentation actually meant in the lead up to the launch of Playstation 5.  While opinions on personal taste in the games shown will be abundant, we wanted to talk about the business decisions Sony is making and what it means to the average consumer.  Sadly, communication from Sony is poor on this front and it’s due to some of these decisions, as we discuss. If you are scratching your head after this presentation, you want to listen to this episode.

This week was supposed to be tight and focused with little to talk about but in no time the tangents begin.  Fred is mostly to blame, but a slew of discussion is had including Mortal Kombat movies, an old friend (Jam), and more eBay buys.  Then Trees discusses his final days with Spider-Man while Fred talks Gears Tactics before the two wrap up with the Xbox Series X presentation and the expectations of gamers going into the next generation.
