With Sony now spilling out information about the next PlayStation console, Carlos, Migs, and Matthew starts 189 by discussing what we know so far. Is it too soon to talk about the PS5 with how successful the PS4 is at the moment?

We also tackle the latest on Respawn Entertainment thanks to their success with Apex Legends and the recently announced Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Also, we talked about crunch, which have been reported that have plagued big studios like Netherrealm Studios (Mortal Kombat 11) and Epic Game (Fortnite).

And since Avengers: Endgame will be the talk of the town for weeks to come, the crew talks about their memorable Marvel games ever.
