Free Play 102 | Next-Gen Pandemonium


About This Episode

There has been so much chaos and pandemonium surrounding Xbox and Playstation’s latest announcements. We discuss why there are such small amounts of consoles available for pre-order, try to figure out what system we’ll be picking up and when we’re getting it, touch on Microsoft’s acquisition of Bethesda, and Matt shares how he managed to successfully pre-order himself a Playstation 5. And that’s what we want to talk about this week on the FreePlay podcast.
