Epic is doing the right thing the wrong way | Podcast

Latest episode available to download now, also discusses impact of Halo Infinite delay

In our latest podcast, Matt, Rebekah, Chris and James discuss the biggest news of the past week -- starting, of course, with Epic versus Apple and Google.

In case you missed the news, the Fortnite firm skillfully goaded Apple into removing the world's biggest game from its App Store then followed up with a pre-prepared lawsuit and a conveniently-ready-to-go parody video. 

Google later removed the game as well and found itself facing a similar lawsuit.

Rebekah has already discussed the messaging around this video in her opinion piece on why it was an irresponsible piece of corporate propaganda, but we delve deeper on the podcast into the many nuances around what Epic is attempting to do.

We discuss the way it is mobilising its audience -- and whether the audience has any place in this fight -- as well as the ongoing and related investigations into big tech firms both in Congress and the European Commission, and whether Epic is right in its motivations.

We also discuss the delay to Halo Infinite, and the impact this will have on the launch of Xbox Series X, the all-but-confirmed Xbox Series S, and Xbox Game Pass.
