We had a lot of fun with our VHS Gaming Tape bonus stream - if you are subscribed to the VOGNetwork Twitch channel, check out the VOD! Sony has (now confirmed) announcing the closure of the PS3, PSP, and Vita digital storefronts this summer. Since this was recorded, we learned that they are NOT closing down the ability to redownload existing purchases. Microsoft is rebranding Xbox Live to just the Xbox Network, further cementing their desire for an Xbox ecosystem rather than just a console. Microsoft is the current primary suitor for chat app Discord - what does this mean for the future of Discord communities if it happens? Then we talk to OLR about Sony's backwards compatibility and the future of Discord.
