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 Mark Medina, Senior Editorial Producer here at IGN.
This week our game of the year watch begins! It has been an interesting year thus far for next-gen consoles, and while there haven’t been many next-gen exclusives, there have been some highlights throughout the year. While goliaths like Elden Ring have stolen the show, updates for games like GTA V and Cyberpunk have kept us coming back to old favorites.
