Welcome to Checkpoint. The show where we stop to break down all the biggest Xbox/PC gaming news stories of the week so far. In this episode, we discuss a PlayStation exclusive coming to Xbox Game Pass, Certain Affinity working on additional Halo Infinite content, the current state of Japanese games on Xbox, whether or not Xbox plans to deliver a handheld console, and so much more!
What is CHECKPOINT?
Our goal with CHECKPOINT is to deliver a quick and convenient way for our audience to digest Xbox news each and every week. We view this as a hybrid format that combines our favorite elements of standard news recaps with added editorial opinions and conversations from myself and my co-host, Jez Corden. The current target length for a standard episode is 15-20 minutes. As we already deliver a weekly gaming podcast called Xbox Chaturdays, we want to ensure that CHECKPOINT serves as a more digestible standalone video series on the Windows Central Gaming channel.
