The mission statement of the show has never been proven as strongly as it is during this episode. Brian and Corey's starting point to the episode is the Sony Press Conference from Paris Games Week.

Corey mentioned a clip from the PS Live broadcast. You can watch that here. Here is the super long Kotaku article...

You'll be wowed by the amount of money Dave has sunk in this, and if that doesn't get you, Brian makes a (possibly) shocking declaration. We also circle back to Visceral's closing and lots of feedback. Check out Dave on Twitter. We love the feedback we've been...
