Manage episode 290693397 series 2872452
Shhh, listen! Can you hear that song from the Titanic movie? Turns out PlayStation might be needing it. A new report from Bloomberg says Sony's upper management is focused on blockbuster games that are ‘too big to fail’. We're joined by gamer, streamer, and pancake artist @ducksindisguise to discuss what Sony's approach might mean for the future of video games.
Game announcements come first, however (like Konami's surprise sequel to GetsuFumaDen, and the new blurple Nintendo Switch Lite). Next, it's headlines time. This week, we're chatting about God of War director David Jaffe's claims that Sony is planning a "counterpunch" to Microsoft's XBox Game Pass, Epic's very expensive battle to gain market share from Steam, the remake rumors surrounding GoldenEye 007 after a trademark renewal, and Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa's admission that we may be in for an upcoming Switch shortage.
Finally, we look back at Psychonauts on the game's 16th anniversary.
