Super Joystiq Podcast 096: Kinect-less Xbox One, Far Cry 4, Nintendo E3 future


This week's Super Joystiq Podcast demands that you enjoy its "priest deck."

We are still a few weeks out from Watch Dogs, but in the absence of big releases (Mario Kart talk next week) we have big news. Anthony is in for Ludwig this week – flanked by Susan, Alexander, and Jess, the group hits Ubisoft's financial call and Microsoft's announcement that Kinect is going the way of the add-on peripheral. Tune in to hear the crew's thoughts on Far Cry 4, the delay of The Division, the impact of a Kinect-less Xbox, Nintendo's future, and E3 2014 speculation.
