Sony did their own teardown of the newest PlayStation and it was awesome. Japanese reviewers also got their hands on the PS5 and they reported that the next-gen console is extraordinarily quiet. That’s fun. Meanwhile, on the other side of console mountain, Nintendo is fighting a legal battle over the dreaded Joy-Con drift. Apparently, their lawyers said, “it ain't’ that bad, get over it or get gud.” Okay, that’s not what they said at all but you could imagine, right? Lastly, the gang talks about China’s hold on free speech in video games and all the censored words in Genshin Impact.

Minecraft Steve crushes Sakurai's Spirits - Send News #32
3602
Nintendo announced their next big fighter to the Super Smash Bros Ultimate roster and it is none other than Minecraft Steve! And also Alex, Enderman, and Zombie. But mostly Steve! In the announcement video, Masahiro Sakurai seemed more than a bit upset at the addition, even throwing Nintendo itself under the bus hinting they almost forced him to do it! Cyberpunk 2077 developers CD Projekt Red has repeatedly stated they would not be forcing crunch on their employees. Well a year later, it’s all a lie! In a recent statement, and with much regret, the studio heads announced that for the next six weeks leading up to the launch of the game everyone would be pulling six-day work weeks to get the game across the finish line. The Xbox Series X is in the hands of some lucky industry folks and we now know just how fast it is at running last generation games. And it is very very fast. But is this enough to convince everyone to upgrade to the new hardware over Sony’s PlayStation 5? Speaking of Sony, Insomniac Games announced that they had recast the facial motion capture actor for Peter Parker in their upcoming remaster of the PlayStation 4 hit Marvel’s Spider-Man for the PlayStation 5. Fans, of course, were not happy about this at all!

Visit http://att.com/5G for more information on AT&T 5G! Xbox announced their plans to purchase Bethesda this week and surprised the entire industry to its core. Of course, the big news has us wondering… Will past and future games be locked to the Xbox Series X or the Xbox Series S in the near future? Will the next Skyrim or Fallout be playable on PS5? We’re taking a look at all those questions and more this week on Send News!  If the Bethesda buy out wasn’t enough, the Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S pre orders went live on Tuesday and despite some subtle jabs from Phil Spencer and Xbox twitter it went about as well you’d expect - which is to say, not much better or worse than the PS5 pre order chaos. Speaking of the PS5 it’s also been reported that there were quite a bit fewer PS5 Digital Edition models available for pre order than the standard PS5 model. Another surprise story this week hit just yesterday when Amazon announced that it will be joining the cloud gaming market with it’s new subscription service Luna. Set to hit iOS and and all your other favorite mobile devices Amazon hopes to take on Stadia and xCloud. Last but not least our final story is about a potential breach that could effect hundreds of thousands of Activision accounts and Call of Duty players. Many complaints have been surfacing about hacked accounts and credentials being swapped. Activision’s official word is that reports of a security breach so far have been inaccurate but it might be time to change that password just in case.

Go to http://luminskin.com/sendnews to get a one month free trial of everything you need to start your skincare journey at home! Visit http://att.com/5G for more information on AT&T 5G! PS5 pre order fever has hit the internet! Excited fans are taking digital retail outlets like Walmart and Target by storm as they buy up every PS5 the moment they become available. It’s not particularly a bad problem to have if you are Sony but if you’re looking to play Miles Morales or Demon’s Souls on a PS5 at launch you might have to work for it a little. While trying to get a PS5 preorder has been complete chaos pretty much since the price and launch date was announced - Microsoft is boasting about a simultaneous worldwide launch and scheduled preorders. Only time will tell if Xbox will come through with those promises but in the meantime the Xbox Series S has taken a bit of heat this week. According to Microsoft themselves, the next gen budget console will only be playing last gens versions of cross-gen games. Less eloquently put, the Xbox Series S will only play Xbox One S versions of current gen games. That means you can play better versions of current gen games on last gen hardware… the Xbox One X. That of course means you won’t be getting any of the “enhanced for Xbox Series X” upgrades on the Series S either... Still following? That’s okay me neither. Anyways we’re talking about all the next gen details on todays episode of Send News! So don’t miss out. 00:00 - Intro 00:49 - PS5 showcase and pre order chaos 21:55 - PS5 Unit Sales and  29:24 - Series S cross gen debacle 37:18 - Listener Questions More podcast episodes here! https://link.chtbl.com/IGPodcast   Or buy our shirt! https://is.gd/u3xCtA OR follow us on Twitter! https://twitter.com/briangaar http://twitter.com/@DarthBurrit0 https://twitter.com/doplextv http://twitter.com/InsideGaming SOURCES [Playstation Blog] Sony finally revealed the PS5 prices/release dates https://blog.playstation.com/2020/09/16/playstation-5-launches-in-november-starting-at-399-for-ps5-digital-edition-and-499-for-ps5-with-ultra-hd-blu-ray-disc-drive/ [Polygon] PS5 preorders were a mess https://www.polygon.com/2020/9/16/21440842/ps5-preorder-gamestop-best-buy-blocked-sony-availability [Bloomberg] Did Sony cut the number of PS5s to be produced https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-09-15/sony-is-said-to-cut-ps5-forecast-by-4-million-due-to-chip-woes [VGC] Xbox Series S less powerful than the One X? https://www.videogameschronicle.com/news/xbox-series-s-likely-wont-be-able-to-run-xbox-one-x-content-its-claimed/

Can Halo Infinite make a COMEBACK? - Inside Gaming Presents: Send News #23

It’s fair to say the Xbox Studios Summer Showcase left a lot of Halo fans (and anxious Series X stans) with more questions than answers. Particularly, a majority felt underwhelmed by the graphical fidelity of Halo Infinite. So, today on Send News we’re asking: what do you do to freshen up a decade-old franchise? What will it take for Halo Infinite to reclaim the franchise’s glory days? In addition, Brian, Alanah, Conor and Evan take a moment to reflect on their time playing Ghost of Tsushima and consequently write a haiku (not really but we should have). Of course, we’re also talking about the news this week! Star Citizen fans are finally saying “Enough Is Enough!” when it comes to Cloud Imperium’s lack of updates, and Superdata compares metrics on this summer's game showcases with last year’s E3. Sit down and have a listen to all this and more on this week’s episode of Inside Gaming Presents: Send News!  00:00:00 - Intro 00:00:36 - Can Halo Infinite make a comeback? 00:21:17 - Talking Ghost of Tsushima 00:38:14 - Star Citizen fans are finally pissed 00:52:23 - Is E3 really dead? 01:01:11 - Listener Question 1 01:04:16 - Listener Question 2 More podcast episodes here! https://link.chtbl.com/IGPodcast   Or buy our shirt! https://is.gd/u3xCtA OR follow us on Twitter! https://twitter.com/briangaar http://twitter.com/@DarthBurrit0 http://twitter.com/mc_lotta https://twitter.com/Charalanahzard http://twitter.com/InsideGaming SOURCES [Reddit] Star Citizen fans have had enough https://www.reddit.com/r/starcitizen/comments/hx1s6v/4_months_ago_cig_promised_more_regular_updates/fz3s1tv/ [Robert Space Industries] Star Citizen dev responds https://robertsspaceindustries.com/spectrum/community/SC/forum/3/thread/squadron-42-roadmap-update/3260782 [GamesIndustry.biz] E3 isn’t really needed? https://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2020-07-30-superdata-publisher-showcases-were-not-hurt-by-absence-of-e3

Alanah’s back this week and she’s got the goods on a closed-door demo of Halo Infinite! Of course, that’s directly related to the biggest news this week: the long-awaited Xbox Series X showcase totaling 22 console exclusive reveals… but what does it all mean? Brian, Conor, Patrick, and Evan sort it all out as they go over the highs and lows of Xbox’s biggest summer event. Not to be forgotten, Ubisoft is still in the news as employees testified that they were repeatedly told by executives and leadership that “Women don’t sell” and as a result, we learned we’re very fortunate to have any female leads in Ubisoft games at all. Lastly, a PS5 price announcement may be coming sooner than we thought as a preorder page was made live on Amazon, and some hackers routed around and found some additional information.
