8-4 Play: 6/12/2020: HI, FIVE

Big gaming news on a Friday again, huh? Guess it won’t be in the latest 8-4 Play… WRONG. We went all out and recorded a special PS5 segment on Friday! Join us, as we gaze into the traceable rays and haptic sounds of the future.

Every other week, tune into 8-4 Play for talk about video games, Japan, and Japanese video games, straight from the 8-4 offices in beautiful downtown Tokyo. Hosted by 1UP Japan's own Mark MacDonald, John Ricciardi, and Hiroko Minamoto.
