James, Neil, Gary and friend of the show Richard "Major Lag" Portchmouth discuss the latest gaming headlines, including:

Nintendo 3DS price cut

The week's most surprising news is that Nintendo is lowering the trade price of the 3DS, meaning retailers are likely to knock it down to £130. But what message is this sending?

Skyrim to have 'bigger', 'complete package' DLC

Bethesda says we can expect Skyrim DLC releases akin to those of Fallout 3 and Rockstar's games. And that's made the pimp of Tamriel very happy...

Average XBLA price on the rise

Microsoft admits that the average price of Xbox Live Arcade games has risen over the past few years, but that gamers are more than happy to pay for them. Does the team agree?

Armageddon for Red Faction

THQ axes the Red Faction franchise after poor financial results and disappointing sales of it's recent release, Armageddon. But that's okay - Gary's more interested in Saints Row.

Riccitiello: The console cycle has gone forever

EA CEO Jon Riccitiello believes that the console cycle we've come to know has ended, thanks to the rise of mobile gaming and downloads. We discuss our thoughts on the future of consoles.

EA hopes to resolve Steam issues

A disagreement between Electronic Arts and Valve has seen the former's games removed from Steam. Who's in the right? Who will be the most affected? And does it even matter to gamers?

This month's quiz is very special: it's the very first GameBurst Listener Free-For-All.

Rather than having the usual formula of two teams pitted against each other in a battle of wits, we have four fans of GameBurst foolish enough to come on the show and try to take on the quiz themselves. And they're not allowed to work together, either. It's every man (and one woman) for themselves.

In the four corners we have Ben Walker, Phil Laidler, Matt Whetter and Marti Bennett. In the centre of the ring we have James, wielding the usual arsenal of In The News, Music Round, Mystery Questions and of course Defend the Indefensible.
