The Mash Those Buttons Show #13: Playstation 5 Compatibility Strategy, Accessibility vs Competitive Balance, and June Games Preview

June 1st, 2020

The biggest news from last week is actually about this week. Sony will finally reveal the PS5 (hopefully) in their Playstation 5 event scheduled for June 4th. We also discuss how new PS4 games will need to be compatible with the PS5, and also that Sony doesn’t have much interest in making PS5 games work on the PS4.

We also have a discussion around accessibility vs competitive balance in multiplayer games, and go through our June games preview.

Hosts

Jarret is Executive Director as well as one of the founding members of Mash Those Buttons. He plays all types of games, but tends to lean more toward FPS, Stealth, and Racing Games. Currently too involved in Overwatch.

Host of WoW! Talk! and The Tauren & The Goblin. Sometimes known as the Video Games Public Defender. Wants to play more Destiny and Marvel Heroes but WoW is all-consuming. Decent F2P Hearthstone player. Sad that he lost the Wii that had Wrecking Crew on it. Would be happy if the only game ever made was M.U.L.E. Gragtharr on Skywall-US. Garresque on Ravencrest-US.
