Is Rocket League’s Xbox One Release Helped or Hindered by Being Ex PS-Plus?

In this week’s episode, Antony and Darren discuss the anticipated release of the acclaimed Rocket League on Xbox One and ponder over whether the fact that the game launched as a free PS Plus title would help it sell over on Microsoft’s platform due to the love furnished upon it at that time, or could this legacy make potential buyers hesitate to part with their cash in the hope that as it was free over on PS4 it won’t be long to become free on Xbox One… Is there an equation here? Desire vs Patience?

PlayStation VR – Stick Men or Next Gen?

In a week dominated by news from both the Video Game Awards and the PlayStation Experience, the Sparks, along with plenty of bearded banter from guest Spark James Thomas (@BIGsheep) breakdown the new games announcements, gameplay trailers and VR news.

In this week’s Podcast we’re joined by special guest Spark James Thomas (@BIGsheep).

Darren and Antony are still hyper from the Star Wars Battlefront beta but as the dust settles on the battlegrounds of Hoth, things are not as rosy as they seem…

The Sparks discuss the post-beta Star Wars Battlefront news and debate Season Passes, feedback from the beta and how long the Battlefront excitement will last.

Darren despairs at the trend of the Season Pass, trembling at its inclusion in Star Wars is a true portent of the ultimate finality of the practice. It really does seem that no matter how load the disagreements are, in the end, its cash that counts and just like Destiny the money will roll in and the trend will continue… But is it really that bad? It is down to choice after all…
