Maybe fibre is better?

Turns out it's still hard to pre-order a game console when online stores fall apart. We check in on whether Nic or Shay decided to pre-order anything or wait it out post-launch.

This slides into the whole Microsoft buying ZeniMax Media thing and all the studios that brings, and whether this leads us down a path of more or less platform exclusive games in future.

And then, as the news keeps developing in real-time, we discuss the decision to expand the NBN to giving more people fibre to the home. How could they have known people might eventually want faster broadband?
