PS5, Xbox Series X and S review embargo bonanza. It's the Eurogamer next-gen news cast!

Console yourself.

What a week! We've just had two big embargoes lifted: the PlayStation 5 review embargo, and the Xbox Series X and S review embargo. Oh yeah, and we've got review embargoes for Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Astro's Playroom. Finally, the gloves are off and we can talk freely about the next-generation!

That's exactly what Eurogamer news editor Tom Phillips, Eurogamer reporter Emma Kent and myself do in the video below, the fourth in our weekly next-gen news cast show. Emma talks about the Xbox Series S (her impressions are on the site now), Tom talks about the Xbox Series X (Digital Foundry's review is live now), and I discuss the PS5 (Digital Foundry's PS5 review is live now).

Eurogamer Next-Gen Newscast - PS5, Xbox Series X and S review embargo bonanza!

Meanwhile, we discuss Insomniac's PS5 launch title Spider-Man: Miles Morales (here's Martin's review), pack-in game Astro's Playroom (Martin again with the review), as well as all the rest of the week's next-gen news - including how you won't be able to queue up outside a shop to buy one of the fancy new consoles.

A huge amount, once again, to get through. I hope you enjoy the chat!
