Sony's in hot water again for their failure to communicate -- this time about the new voice chat recording feature on the PlayStation 5. Is it an egregious violation of privacy or the key to defeating online toxicity? Spoiler: It's neither, but we discuss the murky gray middle of the issue.
As usual, we've also got game announcements (like the new DLC for Pokemon Sword and Shield and the surprise inclusion of Luigi in Mario 35). Next it's headline time, with Atari's cryptocurrency venture, the newly announced Analogue Duo for TurboGrafx fans, GameStop's monetary "incentive structure" with Microsoft, and the future of Bethesda games on PS5. Finally, we finish up the show with a look back at the best-selling PlayStation 2 on the console's 20th anniversary.
