Now that both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S have launched, we can finally settle the debate on which one is the best via the hottest video game podcast out there. On this week’s episode of GameSpot After Dark, PS5 reviewer Mat Paget and Xbox Series X|S reviewer Michael Higham were supposed to throw down but opted for spirited console banter to inform you on where each platform stands at launch.
In a bit of a mix to the normal podcast format, Jake played moderator by giving each debater limited time to make their case on several predetermined topics such as game library, backwards compatibility, controller, user experience, and more. Lucy was chilling, but provided some much needed perspective throughout.
Jake was also able to corral a few GameSpot After Dark listeners for a panel of judges to determine who won the debate who you can hear in this very episode–shouts out to y’all. If you want to join the GameSpot community, the After Dark podcast is a great place to start where you can get to know who we are and what happens behind the scenes (and also keep up with the latest and greatest in video games).
