Episode 123 | “Stonks”

Sik is out this week so Nick is joined by Xbox Era’s own Dan a.k.a. Knottian and Aarsal a.k.a. Soulblazerz.

Gamescom Opening Night Live and Xbox’s own streams happened, with Lies of P stealing the show. Pentiment got dated, Sony is making their version of an Elite controller and raising prices in every market but one. Phil got interviewed on Bloomberg and so much more, holy cow!

Oh yeah, the rumor is there may be a Rumor Mill this week.
