Should Sony follow Microsoft's lead and sell PS5s through the PS4? It's the Eurogamer News Cast!

Prized scalp.

Another week, another Eurogamer News Cast! Join Eurogamer reporter Emma Kent, news editor Tom Phillips and me in the video below as we dig into the headlines that matter.

This week we discuss Microsoft's new plan to beat the console scalpers. It's letting certain people buy an Xbox Series X/S through an Xbox One only. It's a clever plan, but will it work? And should Sony follow suit and sell PlayStation 5 through PlayStation 4s?

Eurogamer news cast: Microsoft's plan to kill console scalping

Meanwhile, we discuss Ubisoft's latest delay of Skull & Bones, as well as its promise not to abandon paid AAA games while making free-to-play versions of core franchises.

EA said Battlefield 6 is designed for PS5 and Xbox Series X, but will also run on last-gen. Are the two mutually exclusive? We discuss.

The Epic versus Apple trial keeps on giving, and it's rapidly approaching farce. This week Epic was forced to defend poor old Peely from Apple's lawyers. But what's really underneath Fortnite's fruity mascot?

The head-scratchers continue: Ubisoft will now slap the "Ubisoft Original" label on the games it makes, and Nintendo has let someone sell a Calculator app on its eShop for eight quid. That should help Switch owners work out the Nintendo tax.

All that plus the regular 'what we've been playing' (yes, Tom and I talk about Mass Effect Legendary Edition!) and 'mug check' segments are in the show. Give it a watch, and let us know what you think in the comments.
