The Ready Up Podcast – Season 3 Episode 12 – “The Next Generation”

This week Tony and Simon lost a guest. A bit careless but with any luck the technology will allow us to reconstitute them for next time! Meanwhile the boys are all over the Xbox One and the PS4 having both between them. Hardware, system software and games are all dissected and scrutinised.


  • It’s pronounced For’t’za – who knew??
  • Controller comparisons and Producer John’s gorilla paws
  • “Xbox, play ‘Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-powered Battle Cars’” – would you feel stupid?
  • Kinect IS cool – at least it reads QR codes well
  • FIFA 14 – next-gen improvements – can they improve a football game?
  • There should be a ‘cool’ button in every game which allows you to put sunglasses on!
  • Auto-install is nice on both new systems
  • Sharing pics and videos is good but falls short of where we ideally want it to be


James got to name Simon’s game this week so we hope you enjoy “Counter-Strike It Lucky!”
