Xbox shows its hand | Podcast

Latest episode discusses Series S, price points, Xbox All Access, EA Play on Game Pass and, er, Nintendo

This week, James, Brendan, Rebekah and Chris discuss the biggest news of the past week, which is, unsurprisingly, Xbox.

The platform holder announced its long-rumoured Xbox Series S model at $299, priced the Xbox Series X at $499, detailed the Xbox All Access payment plan for both models, and revealed that the EA Play library will be added to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate later this year.

With all the pieces in place for the launch of Microsoft's fourth console generation, we discuss how the platform holder is trying to reshape the business, who the audience for the Series S might be, and whether Sony might respond to the EA Play deal, among other things.

And then we somehow masterfully manage to steer the last third of the episode to talking about Nintendo.
