On this week’s Salient Points: Sony keeps charging gamers a premium to access PS4 and PS5 versions of the same game. The latest culprit? Horizon Forbidden West‘s $80 “special edition” price tag for the privilege to cross-gen the title next year.
Dalan, Luis, and I talk about that, what we can expect from PlayStation’s late “Summer Showcase” next week, Steam developers upset about the platforms refund policy, consoles to continue to be in short supply, why launch PS5s are the superior PS5s, Naughty Dog’s standalone multiplayer game, and more.
Games featured: Overcooked: All You Can Eat, Predator Hunting Grounds, Cyberpunk 2077, Dead Space, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Destiny 2, Psychonauts 2.
