  1. Ah yes, continuing to show just how Nintendo’s manipulated the masses with a shitty cheaply made tablet and how many had to be bought to replace them.

    Sony, your PS5 better be worth that hype if you want your status back as the company that really saved gaming

      1. Pretty much. No other company has saved the industry more than what Nintendo did in the 1980s with the NES; that mid-decade is what changed video games forever.

    1. I’m sure the reps from Sony will be around soon to search for feedback in the comments section of a Nintendo news website and will pass your comments up the ladder.

      No, no… I’m not being sarcastic. I’m sure most Sony employees are playing their Switch primarily these days :)

    1. Unless it’s coming this year. It’s true that Switch Mini came in 2019 but rumours about the Switch Pro were around with the rumours of Switch mini.

    2. *Switch Lite. Not Switch mini. I don’t know why I called it Switch mini.
