The Xbox One release date is upon us and your host Brian Heater is joined by Ben Gilbert and Terrence O'Brien to game it up once again. Ben fell asleep at the controller the other night, so we've pumped him full of coffee in order to get the lowdown on Microsoft's newest console. The One's controller also grabs some of the spotlight, with its massive R&D budget having funded some interesting concepts; smell-o-vision anyone? We had the chance to get our hands on Nokia's Lumia 2520 tablet in the studio, too, and it shows... all over its fingerprint-prone glossy red shell. We have plenty more in store for you this week, so hop on down to the streaming links below for another episode of the Engadget Podcast!
