Welcome back to Next-Gen Console Watch 2020, our new show following all the news and rumors on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Series S. I’m Daemon Hatfield, and this week I’m joined by Ryan McCaffrey, host of IGN’s Xbox podcast, Podcast Unlocked, and Jonathon Dornbush, host of IGN’s PlayStation podcast, Podcast Beyond.
This week we discuss everything Sony revealed at its PS5 Showcase! We explore the PlayStation 5’s launch lineup, price details, the launch date, Sony’s new subscription service upgrade PlayStation Plus Collection, and how Sony’s reveal stacks up to the Xbox Series X.
