8-4 Play 5/6/2011: WII 2, PSN 0

7 May 2011

Bin Laden is dead. The galaxy is at peace. What better way to celebrate than with 8-4 Play and a ton more talk about Nintendo’s Wii successor and Sony’s ongoing PSN woes? To help brief us on the latest intel, we called in former US Navy Seals Shane “Bill Rizer” Bettenhausen and Evan “Lance Bean” Shamoon, who also share thoughts on Portal 2, the new Sony tablets, El Shaddai, and Sonic’s legitimacy (or lack thereof?).
