Episode 70 - Is It No Mans Skys Next
Platinum Explosion: The PlayStation Podcast
A weekly PlayStation podcast focusing on the oceanic perspective on the latest news.
Every episode is guaranteed laughs and antics and bound to go off-topic before wrapping up in the latest PS trophy talk in #everytrophycounts
Dylan has barely recovered from a week out sick since the last episode and attempts not to cough or sniffle too much in your ear as Ashley and himself discuss No Man's Sky's big update titled 'Next.'
The guys also discuss Michael Pachter predicting the next console generation beginning in 2020, Sony's recent next-gen comments and mention of the VITA!
PlayStation has finally revealed that Concrete Genie from PixelOpus will be releasing October 9th with both a Standard and Deluxe Edition now available for pre-order.
The next Grand Prix coming to Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled will introduce a brand new track as well as lots of new unlockables and characters. Oh, and Activision is now adding the micro-transactions that most of us felt was oddly missing in the way the games Wumpa Coins system was set-up.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood is launching for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch tomorrow the 26th of July. Honestly, though, there hasn't been that much promotion for the game, which leaves some questions to be answered.

Platinum Explosion Youtube Series:
We set the challenge a couple of weeks ago and now Dylan & Ashley share their #HeartmanChallenge lists. The rules are simple: at least one movie and TV scene with a song or music video and tally up to less than 21-minutes.
Concrete Genie, the upcoming PlayStation exclusive, has finally received a release date! Joel Gralton from Ani-Game managed to get a chance to preview the game (read that here), so Dylan invited him on the show to answer some questions about the game.
With its latest entry into the Wolfenstein franchise, there comes an odd mix. Youngblood lets you play cooperatively, but its mission design and RPG flair has Dylan confused about the direction of the game. He's enjoying it though and discusses with Ash.
Hideo Kojima has let loose at San Diego Comic-Con and gave us ALL the details on the Heartman character! I kid, of course, he gave a very weird piece of information, but it makes for an inspired #challenge that we'll be doing in the coming week(s).
A new report suggests Oculus could be trying to secure an Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell VR game exclusive to Oculus platforms. What would this mean to PSVR if a big triple-a — and what is known as a console series — was pulled away from the PSVR? We discuss and speculate this week.
Sony is looking to join the Monopoly game that Xbox has been playing for a while now by themselves. Which hot properties will be left on the board to pick up after Xbox has been passed go a few times?
Dylan has grabbed himself the latest in the VR craze, the Oculus Quest. It's no wires, no hassle approach to VR has Dylan hoping that PlayStation could adopt that approach, rather than focusing on visual fidelity of VR games.
Crash Team Racing is back and Dylan and Ashley discuss it from both ends of the track. Dylan, as someone who has played the original game many times over, and Ash, as someone hasn't touched a Crash racing game before.
