Firmware Update 2.23: Out to Launch

Joe & Malcolm both have shiny new PlayStation 5’s, and dang it they’re gonna tell you all about it! With three weeks of next-generation gaming under their belts, here are their impressions of the DualSense controller, system software, and, best of all, some dang video games. This is a good one, so come and get it!

Talking Points: Adventures in reselling old consoles; navigating the PS5’s shiny new UI; dipping our toes in backwards compatibility; the not-so-straightforward process of upgrading certain PS4 games to PS5; the glory of the DualSense controller; the sheer delight of exploring Astro’s Playroom; Destiny 2’s Beyond Light expansion keeps its hooks in Malcolm; Yakuza: Like a Dragon’s seamless transition to a new protagonist and gameplay genre; Bluepoint Games outdo themselves with the Demon’s Souls remake; Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is the latest step in the young hero’s mainstream takeover; Joe samples Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion on his Xbox Series X.

Hosts: Malcolm Spinedi (@PSMalc), Joe Garcia (@Wons23)
