What the Xbox & Activision Deal Means for PS6, Xbox Series Consoles – Next-Gen Console Watch

Welcome back to Next-Gen Console Watch, our show following all the news and rumors on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Series S. I’m Daemon Hatfield, and this week I’m joined by Ryan McCaffrey, host of IGN’s Xbox podcast, Podcast Unlocked, and Jonathon Dornbush, host of IGN’s PlayStation podcast, Podcast Beyond.
