On this week’s episode of IGN’s PlayStation podcast, IGN’s Podcast Beyond!, host Jonathon Dornbush is joined by Mark Medina and Jada Griffin to discuss all the latest in the world of PS5, PS4, and more.
First, with the recent PS4 and PS5 game delays of things like Elden Ring and the PS5 versions of The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077, we talk about how jampacked early 2022 is with PS4 and PS5 games, including Horizon Forbidden West, Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin, Sifu, Elden Ring, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, Gran Turismo 7, and so much more. We discuss what we’re so excited to play, why we don’t mind this fall being a bit quieter, and how we plan to tackle this short span of so many potentially awesome PS4 and PS5 games.
We also discuss PS5’s sales success in September against the Nintendo Switch, and what that means for PS5 sales going into the rest of the year, as well as the return of custom PS5 faceplates from a third-party company, DBrand, our approach to customizing our hardware or looking for different console and controller color variants, and more. Plus, we also discuss the move of God of War 2018 coming to PC early next year.
We also dig into games we’ve been playing, including Death Stranding: Director’s Cut, Hot Wheels Unleashed, New World, Far Cry 6; Jada shares a Memory Card story, and much more!
