  1. People impress me. We supposed to be in a Padamic and Switch sales and PS5 preorders and Xbox Series X all sold out.

    So is the Pandamic a lie? If so many people are laid off work because of the covid 19, then how is it people have the money to still buy a $500 next generation console to where many retailers post poned the preorders?

    1. Do you realise not every country is the United States?
      Japan is going fine compared to a lot of countries, and a lot of people transitioned to working from home without an itch in the first place, it has not seen a gigantic surge in unemployment.
      The pandemic is very real. It’s really annoying to see people who don’t believe until they get sick or see a relative or close one suffer or die from it.

      1. You know what else is real? Evictions, not able to buy food, not able to pay bills. Pandamic Unemployment paying $300 a month. That’s more real than a stupid virus. I been outisde and in gyms with no mask. I aint sick. Why is that?

        So if Japan is doing so fine, then why arent Nintendo making new games but giving us weak ports at $60?

        People on here told me the Pandamic is the cause of a lack of new games.

        I dont believe in that coronavirus. I think its stupid.
