It’s a bit of an experiment, and admittedly it’s a bit rough around the edges, as we’re all working remotely and relying on flaky home internet, but if our chat goes down well, we’ll keep on having them. That would be awesome, right?
So, please join Tom Phillips, Emma Kent and myself as we discuss the week’s next-gen news, including the PlayStation 5 UI reveal, the Xbox Series X launch lineup, Sony’s make-believe spying, Xbox not being that hot after all, and The Elder Scrolls 6 possibly maybe not launching on PlayStation 5. Oh, and stick around for one of the most embarrassing maths fails I’ve ever been a part of.
You might have wondered what’s going on with the Eurogamer Podcast. The honest answer is we can’t really do the podcast to the standard we want at present. With everyone working remotely, we want to ensure the podcast is of a certain production quality before it returns. In short, we’re on Covid Hiatus. That’s how Christian Donlan described it to me, anyway, before saying Covid Hiatus sounds like a Steve Albini album, which, you know, it does.
