My Wife makes some incredible cakes

So last weeks announcement out of the way you would think that we would be able to dedicate the show to more than just the PS4.

You would be wrong, there was about half a show of follow-up, from the fact that the device is capable of 4K video to the way they may beat piracy.

However we did also manage to talk about some other news this week, from the next sale of the THQ IP’s & the shut down of 1Up & GameSpy, from EA forcing micro-transactions into all of their titles & the fact that Thomas Was Alone is coming to the PS3.

Anyway all that and much more in this episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.
