Episode 334 : The Future Of PlayStation
Changes are happening at Sony, but what does that mean for the PS5?
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we head right into the weekly raid (our news roundup).
Kicking things off this week, we start on a happy note as we talk about the delays to the Master Chief Collection and why that’s a good thing. Blizzard takes center stage as Diablo 4 implements micro transactions and we find out just how much money Activision has made in the last quarter alone in micro transactions. We also have a slew of TV renewals to get hyped for, to wash the bad Blizzard talk out of our mouths.
Also this week, Scream is in talks to hit the big screen again – but do we want it? Jeff Kaplan finally opens up on the Blizzard ruling of Blitzchung and China is putting stricter regulations on how much their citizens can game. We close out the news this week with Smash Brother becoming the largest selling fighting game of all time, and with good reason.
Our Boss Room this week is all about the management changes at Sony and what it means for the future of the PlayStation.
As always, we appreciate all our adventurers who listen to the show every week and we look forward to your feedback on what we discuss! (firstname.lastname@example.org!)
Grab a drink and settle on in for this weeks action packed episode of…The Surly Nerd!
