The crew jumps into PlayStation’s surprising, big store reversal and the decision to keep the PS3 and PS Vita PlayStation Stores alive for now. We discuss the implications of the decision, why we’re still apprehensive, and what we hope to see from Sony later on. Then, Jonathon offers his preview impressions of Returnal after going hands-on with the PS5 exclusive. He breaks down some of the gameplay, the atmosphere, and how it uses the DualSense and 3D audio so well.
The cast also touches on ProbablyMonsters’ Firewalk Studios and their new partnership with PlayStation to publish an exclusive multiplayer game, what else we’ve been playing, and much more.
