Frosty Canucks Podcast ep 23

What would you attribute to Sony’s success over the last several years?

This week Jason and I cover the impact that third party exclusivity deals had on Sony’s success with the PlayStation 4. There’s a lot to unpack there so that takes the bulk of the episode before we transition over into the games we’ve been playing. Some of notable entries this week include Gorogoa which we both played, Resident Evil 7 which we played together, and Ni no Kuni II.

If you’d like to ask us a question or suggest a topic please reach out to us.
