Apple Silicon unveiled, Xbox Series X & PlayStation 5 battle to win over gamers: Vertical Hold ep 304
That’s because it’s a big week in tech news, with Apple finally announcing its first “Apple Silicon” Macs. Apple had announced that it would launch at least one model with its own SoC silicon underneath by the end of the year, but it’s instead launching 3 of them, and very quickly too.
We delve into what it all means, and whether Apple can live up to the hype with Jennifer Dudley-Nicholson from News. Alex also wrote up the Apple Silcon news, which you can read here.
It’s also a huge week for gamers, with Sony and Microsoft delivering… some… Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 consoles to store shelves.
In one of life’s coincidences, episode 1 of Vertical Hold was all about the battle between Microsoft and Sony with the PS4 and Xbox One, but will history repeat itself this console generation? Alex chats to Alice Walker from the Age and Alex Walker from Kotaku about how you sell a “new” console that has very few “new” games — and which should you pick?
All this and further controversy around the best biscuit in the latest episode of Vertical Hold!
