September 19th, 2012

Nintendo just announced the price and launch date of the Wii U. The system will sell in $299 and $349 flavors, and it will be available starting November 18th.

The Next Gen News crew has elected to dive face first into the details of the launch, the games being offered and the overall values of each bundle. Should you buy a Wii U? We don't know. But, we certainly talk about it.

This episode is extra filthy. You've been warned.

Next Gen News - Episode #126

September 5th, 2012

On this week’s episode of Next Gen News, Erik, Joey and Mike discuss the recent statements by EA Games’ label president Frank Gibeau, who went on record saying publishers purposefully hold off introducing new IPs late in a console lifecycle because there is “no reward.”

Essentially, it’s safer for publishers to churn out tried-and-true sequels until new hardware comes to market so companies can wow audiences with fresh ideas. While Gibeau’s statements might be honest, they also make us super sad, so we discuss what this all means for consumers on this week’s program.

Oh, we also find time to make fun of Mike for attending a Papa Roach concert back in the day.
