  1. Showing us that the little blight that is the Xbox in the last two months was just that. Even then young king PLayStation held UK for some years; but the true king Nintendo always delivers. In fun, game mechanics, and video game systems. Imagine what the Switch-pro ( Zelda breath of the wild 2 ), or the Switch 2 will do ūüėä! This is healthy for gaming, PlayStation will be back swinging with better games. Competition is a win for we the players.
