Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night, jolted awake with the anxiety that I am somehow separate from regular society because I fundamentally do not understand the appeal of Pokémon fucking Go. Well, turns out I am. Because Pokémon Go is fucking unstoppable, and now, according to Bloomberg, Nintendo is worth more than Sony. Let that sink in for a second.
Two days after the game was released, Nintendo increased in value by over £5 billion.
But that’s nothing compared to where the company is at now because they’re worth almost £30 billion at present. Sony, on the other hand, is worth a measly £28 billy. Losers. Nintendo’s value has increased exponentially because of a literal app where — if I understand correctly — you walk around so made-up creatures can battle with other made-up creatures, and sometimes they turn into different creatures?
