287: Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2, Oculus Quest 2 and Xbox Series X vs PS5

September 21, 2020

This week we revisit the past with a special dive into Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2.  Vicarious Visions does what they did before with Spyro and Crash Bandicoot by bringing this classic series back the right way this time. It features both 1 and 2 with all the maps we grew up loving. From Warehouse to Roswell, it’s all here!

In the news, we take a first look at the Oculus Quest 2. Facebook returns not long after with a higher resolution and a lighter form factor than ever before. We also look at the Night City Wire event for Cyberpunk 2077 showcasing the gangs, districts and more in the game. Monster Hunter Rise is coming to the Switch and Apple Arcade is merging with other subscriptions to create Apple One.

In the discussion, PlayStation reveals the pricing and date for the new PlayStation 5. We now have details for both consoles and we explore all that’s coming with each. It’s an exciting time for next-gen. Xbox has a lower budget $299 console with 1440p gaming at 60FPS. They also have their flagship Series X at $499 with 4K gaming at 60FPS. On the other hand, Playstation 5 has one set of games that can likely push 4K with 60FPS but their differentiator is the disc drive. For $499 get the console with a physical disc drive and without one it’s only $399. We cover the games lineup, specs and more in the discussion.
