    The Nintendo Switch 2 Should Launch Sooner Than March 2025 - The Press Start Podcast

    Reports have emerged that the Nintendo Switch 2 will be released March 2025 after an internal delay. Can Nintendo wait that long given 2024 looks light on for new games?

    Details have also leaked around Assassin's Creed Infinity, and the PS VR2 is getting PCR support. We talk about all this and more!

    Our Xbox Business Update Reactions & Ultros Review - The Press Start Podcast

    Our Xbox Business Update Reactions & Ultros Review - The Press Start Podcast

    It's business as usual at Xbox... Or is it? We unpack everything discussed during Xbox's business update in the wake of numerous reports multiple Xbox games would be released on other platforms. James has also played Banished: Ghosts of New Eden and reviewed it more favourably than most. We find out why, and hear from Brodie on his review of the new metroidvania, Ultros.

    Apologies for Ewan's recording playing up initially!

    Xbox Is Dead Long Live Xbox - The Press Start Podcast

    Xbox Is Dead Long Live Xbox - The Press Start Podcast

    It's been a turbulent week for ol' Xbox as reports emerged that more Xbox 'exclusives' were destined for multi-platform release. Phil Spencer has announced a business update next week, but that is not going to stop up speculating what the heck Xbox are up to in light of this developing story.

    We've spent more time with Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice league so are able to share our review of the game, and Kieron's played Final Fantasy VII Rebirth to share his preview. Shannon's watched the new Grounded II documentary too, which got us theorising around the next The Last of Us game.

    PlayStation Won't Have Many Games In 2024 - The Press Start Podcast

    We delayed the show a litte this week to discuss the PlayStation State of Play that happened on Thursday morning. Whilst there was plenty of announcements, the latter half of 2024 looks quiet. We talk about all this, the surprise Silent Hill: The Short Message drop and the lukewarm reception to Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.

    The Xbox Developer Direct this week, but it's not just Indiana Jones: The Great Circle that's got people talking this week. Palworld has set the internet on fire with criticism that it copied Pokémon and speculation about its use of AI. We discuss the problematic nature of the survival game, everything announced at the Xbox Direct including Hellblade II and Avowed, and our review of The Last of Us: Part II Remastered.
