CAN40 – PS4 Slim, Xbox One S, Vita Collecting

This week I am going to hit on the PS4 Slim Leak, how it compares to the Xbox One S, I can’t mention those without talking a bit of PlayStation Neo and Xbox Scorpio, and I will finish up the conversation with PlayStation Vita Collecting.

39CAN – A Future Without Generations

With the imminent release of PlayStation Neo and Xbox Scorpio we are quickly approaching a future where console hardware is iterated upon rather than the traditional 5-7 generational life cycles.  In this episode I discuss why I am excited for this future and why I think it makes sense.

CAN37 – Console Wars Perspective: Business v. Consumer

The term console wars has become nails on the chalkboard for those that don’t care where people game, yet it continues to be a term thrown around in comments sections and message boards as a short sighted way to show allegiance to a brand.

In this episode I cover why the console wars at a competitive business level is good for gaming, while discussing why it’s still a stupid conversation for consumers arguing that the way they spent their money is better than someone else.

It’s possible that the console wars can exist at a level that is good for gamers; if gamers stopped caring about brand allegiance and started caring about games again.

CAN32 – Uncharted, Xbox Scorpio, PS Neo

On this episode of Cereal at Night I wanted to clarify my thoughts and opinions about Uncharted 4.  It’s not that I think it’s a bad game, I just didn’t have as much fun with it as the previous installments.

In the second half of the show I once again discuss iterative console releases; specifically the details surrounding the Xbox Scorpio and the PlayStation Neo. I will then dive into what I think this means for gaming and where I will spend my money.

Also discussed, the Nvidia GTX 1080, Sennheiser Headphones and Sim Racing Cockpits and Wheels.
