The Scorpio Reveal, Persona 5 Streaming Drama, and the Rest of This Week's Headlines

ENDING CREDITS | Taking a look a back at this week's headlines and everything else you might have missed on USgamer.

As another week comes to a close, we find ourselves in the midst of a very weird console transition. Are you ready for 4K? Does anybody care? Microsoft thinks so.

I have the power!

This week's Project Scorpio specs reveal shows that Microsoft thinks there main problem is that the Xbox One isn't as powerful as Sony. They may be right. But as Mike points out, Microsoft has a bigger problem--a lack of compelling first-party games. And that's something no powerful boost is going to easily fix.

Here's the rest of this week's headlines:

With the crazy release schedule that defined last month having cooled considerably, we can now relax and actually play some of the games that we're excited about. It'll certainly be all Persona all the time in our house. On that note, here's your moment of zen to close out the week. Enjoy your weekend and we'll see you on Monday.
