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 today’s 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!
