73 - Xbox One's First Party Problem and Sonic's Future

Xbox One is still selling well, but some fans, including Rocket Punch, are a little concerned about their upcoming games lineup, and are here to discuss! With the delay of Crackdown 3 to 2018, the first-party lineup for Xbox continues to look bare, and this week the Rocket Punch crew talks about what problems the company is facing on that front, and what can be done to help improve their perception to players and critics. Plus, the crew discusses what the success of Sonic Mania means for Sega, and what pressures that may put on their upcoming release, Sonic Forces. All this, plus talks on No Man's Sky, Splatoon 2, and more await!
