One other week, one other bucketload of next-gen console information – and so a lot for Eurogamer information editor Tom Phillips, reporter Emma Kent and me to debate on this week’s information solid.
We kick off by speaking about the PS5 being the biggest console launch ever – a powerful feat throughout a pandemic. We then transfer on to Digital Foundry’s evaluation of some multiplatform video games, that are proven to run higher on PS5 than Xbox Collection X – a shock given all of the speak about Microsoft’s console being the world’s strongest. Microsoft has issued a statement on this, and it seems to be like builders are nonetheless attending to grips with the Xbox Collection X, which reportedly got here in fairly scorching.
Speaking of firm statements, Amazon promised to “put it right” for customers whose PS5s never turned up. However has Amazon put it proper? Not exactly…
Our massive subject this week although is the affect of scalpers on the launch of the PS5 specifically. One group has claimed to have nabbed thousands of PS5s to flip for a profit – even promoting this scheme to members who pay a subscription price. The massive query is, can something be finished to cease the scalpers?
So! Please be part of us within the video beneath to run by the week that was. And hold your eyes peeled for a cameo from Tom’s cat.
