PS5 pre order fever has hit the internet! Excited fans are taking digital retail outlets like Walmart and Target by storm as they buy up every PS5 the moment they become available. It’s not particularly a bad problem to have if you are Sony but if you’re looking to play Miles Morales or Demon’s Souls on a PS5 at launch you might have to work for it a little. While trying to get a PS5 preorder has been complete chaos pretty much since the price and launch date was announced - Microsoft is boasting about a simultaneous worldwide launch and scheduled preorders. Only time will tell if Xbox will come through with those promises but in the meantime the Xbox Series S has taken a bit of heat this week. According to Microsoft themselves, the next gen budget console will only be playing last gens versions of cross-gen games. Less eloquently put, the Xbox Series S will only play Xbox One S versions of current gen games. That means you can play better versions of current gen games on last gen hardware… the Xbox One X. That of course means you won’t be getting any of the “enhanced for Xbox Series X” upgrades on the Series S either... Still following? That’s okay me neither. Anyways we’re talking about all the next gen details on todays episode of Send News! So don’t miss out.
