On this episode of Video Games 2 the MAX, Sean Garmer and Marc Morrison discuss the big announcement that the Xbox Series X won’t have console exclusives for a few years, instead they will be cross-gen. Does this hurt potential sales of the new console? How does it affect the games if they need to be scaled down for Xbox One X or Xbox One S? Or is being consumer-friendly more important than all of that?
Also, more rumors of a Nintendo Switch Pro have surfaced. Does Sean or Marc think it actually releases in 2020?
Plus, Sean gives his thoughts on the Pokemon Direct, the controversy surrounding the expansion pass, and what he thought of the demo for Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Team Rescue DX on Nintendo Switch too.
