We’re at the end of the week and a cavalcade of interesting gaming and tech news has come and gone through our lovely site. Before we close it out this Friday, we’re doing as we do and settling in for another packed Shacknews Dump. Tune in as we discuss Microsoft and Activision Blizzard, the June 2022 PlayStation State of Play, and more!

We also discuss Microsoft’s recent release of “principles” relating to unions and labor organization.
