There were two pretty big events in the world of tech and gaming this week, so in this episode we discuss Apple’s latest event where they announced a new Apple Watch and a couple of new iPads as well as their decision to suddenly drop iOS 14 on everyone out of the blue. We then dive into Sony’s latest PlayStation 5 event and talk about our thoughts on the coming generation of consoles which leads nicely into a discussion about Microsoft’s xCloud game streaming service that launched this week. Finally we cap things off with some of the big mobile gaming news stories of the week.
