This week, we talk about the rumors that Xbox will introduce a disc-less Xbox One S that will go on sale in May. Who is this console for? Is it smart to release it in the early part of the year? Finally, if they’re releasing it before E3 this year, what could that mean for their E3 plans as far as announcements go? We don’t all agree here, as Steven feels the Xbox One is currently not worth a purchase (we come to Xbox’s defense though – a little).
Devil May Cry 5 looks great and is scoring very well in reviews so far. Only one of us is getting the game at launch though – why is Graham sold on it and the rest of us aren’t? In PlayStation news, the early feedback on Days Gone has been very positive overall. We talk about why and see if we can get Graham to at least think about getting the game next month when it releases. MLB19 also is bringing a couple of new modes this year, and we discuss our feelings about each one. Spoilers: we’re really excited about one of them.
To wrap up news, EA announced that they will not be holding a press conference at E3 this year, focusing instead on more live streams and a kickoff event on the Friday night before E3. Is it a good idea for EA to skip the conference portion of the event, and why might they have chosen this strategy?
