From Us to You! Analyzes the PlayStation 4 Pro and Super Mario Run Announcements

PODCAST: Kat, Bob, and Nadia go in-depth on today's big announcements.

On this week's episode of From Us to You! (download link here), Kat, Bob, and Nadia delve into Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro announcement and its prospects, as well as the newly-announced Super Mario Run.

The reaction to the PlayStation 4 Pro has been oddly... muted. Maybe it's because we've known about it since at least GDC? Or maybe it's because no on actually cares that much about 4K output? In any case, we go in-depth on Sony's new premium console, which leads to an interesting discussion on the relevance of photorealistic graphics.

Also in this podcast: A Mario Bros. endless runner! In terms of mobile development, Nintendo could hardly have made a safer choice. But was it the right choice? We discuss!
