It’s that time again, time for another episode of Next Gen News, CraveOnline’s weekly gaming podcast with your hosts Erik Norris, Joey Davidson and Alex Keen.

This week’s show covers two topics. First, we quickly blaze through the news of the PlayStation 3 dropping in price to $249.99. This discussion doesn’t last long because we’re all of the same mindset: if you haven’t bought a PS3 yet, now is the time. Then we move the conversation to some recent controversy that has swept through the gaming industry that makes us turn the magnifying glass on yourselves and ask, “Are gaming writers really journalists?” Our answer might surprise you, but it also leads to some pretty revealing discussion about the PR/gaming writer relationship. In the end, we manage to air our grievances with how this business is handled at times.
