Is there anything I can do to stop the PS5 and Xbox Series X scalpers? Eurogamer’s next-generation newscast! • Eurogamer.net

Another week, another bucket load of next-generation console news-and Eurogamer news editor Tom Phillips, reporter Emmacent and I have a lot to discuss in this week’s newscast.

Start by talking about the PS5 being the biggest console launch ever-a striking feat during a pandemic. Next, let’s move on to the analysis of some multi-platform games by Digital Foundry. These games have been shown to work on the PS5 rather than the Xbox Series X. This is surprising given the story that Microsoft consoles are the most powerful in the world. Microsoft has issued a statement about this, and developers seem to be beginning to understand the Xbox Series X, which is reportedly still very hot.

Speaking of company statements, Amazon has promised to “get it right” for customers who have never seen the PS5. But did Amazon do it right? Not exactly …

A big topic this week is Scalper’s impact, especially on the PS5 launch. One group claims to have picked up thousands of PS5s to make a profit and is promoting this scheme to members who pay subscription fees. The big question is what can be done to stop the scalper?

so! Join the video below and run the week. And keep an eye on the cameo from Tom’s cat.
