340: Xbox Series X vs. PlayStation 5 and Microsoft Acquires Activision Blizzard

January 31, 2022

In Episode 340, Brett compares the Xbox Series X to the Playstation 5 in our final comparison review. We also review Life is Strange 2, an older game but worth discussing as the new Life is Strange Remastered Collection is coming out. We also look at a few games quickly like NBA 2K22, Wreckfest and Dangerous Driving.

In the news, we talk about Blizzard’s upcoming survival game and upcoming Star Wars games. Hyperscape is also shutting down and we look at what this could mean for the future of live service games.

Our topic of the show is on Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard. It’s a huge purchase for nearly 69 billion dollars. With it they get Starcraft, World of Warcraft, Diablo, Call of Duty and much more. What game franchises will we see revived and what will go exclusive? What does this mean for Playstation?
