On this episode of GameSpot After Dark, Jake, Kallie, and Tamoor are joined by podcaster, streamer, and gaming content creator extraordinaire MC Fixer. The crew talk about what they’ve been playing, which includes Spelunky 2, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Marvel’s Avengers, Call of Duty: Warzone, and World’s End Club.
However, the main topic of conversation is, naturally, the PS5 showcase, which finally gave us a release date and prices for Sony’s upcoming consoles. More noteworthy, however, is the company’s inelegant handling of preorders which, despite Sony indicating otherwise, opened very shortly after the showcase and caught most people off guard.
What does that mean for people who were interested in buying a PS5 on launch day and, more importantly, what impact has this had on Sony’s showing and the sentiment around the console going into the launch? Listen to find out what we think.
