[Special] This very special edition of our weekly news show was recorded live during Gonzo Planetary Expo 2013, the annual meet-up of the Gonzo Planet community. In it, the GameBurst team are united for the very first time and discuss both the latest news and hottest topics in the games industry today. Subjects included rumours of Rainbow Six Patriots' cancellation, EA's decision to scrap Online Passes, whether or not a 'new super IP' could reverse Wii U's fortunes, Sony's cautious optimism for PlayStation Vita, the YouTube ad disagreement between Nintendo and Let's Play, and the future of MMOs.

As has been stated, this was recorded live so please forgive any audio discrepancies and the general throb of people in the background playing board games provided by GameBurst Unplugged.
