We try to go over just exactly what was revealed on the new consoles this week. It’s mostly a lot of technical stuff. The guts of the systems. And while that’s always good to have and gives you some idea of what we’re getting with these machines, it doesn’t really give us much of an idea of anything else. On paper, with stats and everything, Microsoft seems to pull ahead here with power. So, there’s that, but you can only go so far on power if there aren’t any games to use it with. And there will be, but the decision on buying a console doesn’t come from stat sheets. It comes from price, availability, and games available. We’re pretty much in the dark on all three of those at this point.
Things happen fast. No sooner had we finished our broadcast when news broke about the change in GameStop’s operations. This was less than 30 minutes after being off the air. So keep that in mind as you listen to us talk about it towards the end of this episode.
Also keep in mind that we won’t have a show next week. In case you’re curious it has nothing to do with what’s currently going on in the world. It’s just a simple break, that’s all.
We all hope you and your family are staying safe during this time and doing what’s needed to keep yourself and others safe as well. Our hobby goes a long way in helping that happen or to at least pass the time while doing so.
