This week we got our first glimpse at one of Sony’s surprises for their September 7th PlayStation Meeting as the new PlayStation 4 Slim popped up on sale on both Gumtree and eBay. Both Eurogamer and Kotaku covered the story and one report from Eurogamer visited the seller at his home to verify the authenticity of the new PS4 Slim!
Has this ruined one of Sony’s surprise or does this clear the decks for the unveiling of the new PlayStation, currently codenamed Neo?
With only a few weeks away until the PlayStation Meeting can Sony protect its other secret announcements and not spring anymore leaks?
This week James (@BIGsheep) Thomas pulls up a chair and joins the Sparks in another epic pod!
In the “What We’ve Been Playing” section James and Antony recount their time so far in the glorious island of The Witness, and pitch the game to Darren in the attempt to convince him that this epic is worthy of the time and money investment; did it work?
This week DICE finally released the plans (no Bothans died) for upcoming DLC, new maps, missions, and more. With four content packs being released over the next 12 months, we ask is this enough to keep players coming back or will they get distracted by story driven narratives elsewhere?
In light of Michael Pachter’s discussion at DICE Europe last week, the Spark’s take some time to examine his prediction of a console-less future in which gaming is directly accessed via Smart TV’s or set top boxes and the like. Would millions more Gamers dive in, would a change like this herald a new dawn of gaming but most importantly, could a potential lack of new consoles ruin Christmas morning?!
