Built to Play 16: Sharing is Caring

In this Toronto International Film Festival delayed episode, we have more news than you could possibly imagine. Valve announced their new sharing plan for Steam that's eerily similar to the Xbox One. At a pre-TGS press conference, Sony remembered that the Vita exists, announced a new model, the Vita TV and the Japan PS4 release date. Ouya's funding scheme remains terrible. Apple surprised no one one by announcing the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. Plus we have an interview with Matt Gilgenbach on his kickstarter, Neverending Nightmares and how the game reflects his experiences with obsessive-compulsive disorder and depression

Music used in this weeks episode is Money Talks by Luca La Morgia.
