@Kidfried @nessisonett I’m completely an uneducated layperson regarding the tech industry, but I have enough insight to know that there’s a lot of inaccurate statements and ill-informed armchair managers that make some ridiculous statements.
I don’t follow them closely but everyone always defers to Digital Foundry for some of the technical detail. I can only assume they know what they’re doing over there. But as far as the business side of things, I definitely agree that a lot of popular websites and gaming journalists seem shockingly ignorant of the industry. Push Square staff are very well grounded and make a great balance of newsy type of reporting and research, occasional industry analytics, dabbling slightly into technical aspects, but keeping the fervor and laid back nature of a fan site replete with outlandish rumors from time to time and stuff like weird Japanese commercials and viral Twitter stories when they apply.
