Holy milestone, Batman! We’re please to present you with episode 10 of MMO Radio, this week coinciding with the announcement of Sony’s next generation console, the Playstation 4! Since Adam has been unpacking from his week in marital bliss, Chris leads the conversation through the MMO possibilities that might accompany this new tech!
Think about it, folks. This new system finally brings its architecture close enough to PCs, and packs enough punch, where MMOs can finally see full, feature complete releases on consoles. Streaming guarantees hardware parity is no longer an issue. Even non-MMOs seem to push closer and closer persistence, as Bungie’s Destiny recently made clear. And hey, Sony has a whole branch kinda dedicated to this stuff, right Smed?
we are VERY excited about the Playstation 4. Read into that what you will

Apart from PS4 talk, we break down Adam’s issues with Nintendo and have a good time getting re-acquainted after a week apart!
It’s also a week of announcements!
- Epic Slant Press is publishing a game! Come play Havok & Hijinks at Saturday’s unpub event at Atomic Empire in Durham, NC. It’s a delightful little game that gamers and non-gamers can both enjoy!
- Chris is writing a column for MMORPG.com! Starting this Friday and running bi-weekly, read The Tourist and join in on an adventure through a new MMO every run.
- Another giveaway for 5-star iTunes reviews! This time we’re giving away a copy of the excellent procedurally generated action-platformer, A Valley Without Wind 2! Read Chris’ review of the first installment here. We also have another copy of Strike Suit Zero to give away. Just make sure your review is written so we have a name to accompany the rating!
