Xbox's GameStop deal: lifeline or table scraps? | Podcast

Latest episode available to download now, also discusses Xbox Series X/S launch day line-up

On the latest Podcast, four members of the team -- Matt, Brendan, Chris and James -- discuss the biggest stories of the past week.

Our main discussion for this episode is the partnership between Microsoft and GameStop, which offers the retailer a share of all digital revenues generated by users of Xbox Series consoles the retail chain has sold.

We debate whether this is a way for the platform holder to sustain a valuable retail partner or an attempt to seem charitable as it pushes its digital ecosystem.

Continuing the Xbox theme, we discuss the day one launch line-up for Series X and S, which features 31 titles but no next-gen exclusives.
