Episode 46: PlayStation 5 Pricing and Preorder Pain (News Show)

September 19, 2020

NPD’s Mat Piscatella joins us again. This time, we’re discussing PlayStation 5 pricing, the messy pre-order rollout, and the August NPD report. We also discuss the Oculus Quest 2 (and whether it’s worth your money), Unity’s IPO, and Razer leaking 100,000 people’s personal information. We also have a hard discussion about Hogwarts Legacy, ethical consumption, and toxic creators. Trans rights are human rights.

Note: Following our recording, Sony issued a statement on the preorder debacle on Twitter:

Let’s be honest: PS5 preorders could have been a lot smoother. We truly apologize for that.

Over the next few days, we will release more PS5 consoles for preorder – retailers will share more details.

And more PS5s will be available through the end of the year.
