Nintendo deserves it, with their wonderful games, and winning system strategy. Sony hasn’t given people a reason to pursue the PS5 like the Switch.

I just wish that they didn’t have to go after copyright infringements so hard. But it’s understandable.

Edit: hmm I think I know why as well. I had some Wi-Fi trouble just know and it sent like 10 replies that were all duplicates. Oof.
