ShopTo News Gaming Discussion January 7th – Next Gen This Year?
Good afternoon everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend!
Its been a bit chilly these past few days and as I managed to finish my last assignment
on Friday, I've actually had some time to play games! I spent a few hours on
Rocket League on Friday night, followed by a bit of Fortnite and a lot of FIFA.
I was tempted to get back into some of the single player games I've had to put
on pause but I had to resist as I knew it would be a slippery slope and I would
end up getting anything done! Anyway, there wasn’t much in the way of gaming
news last week so apologies for the lack of articles, I’m hoping we should get
something to talk about this week and we will of course have coverage of Mario
Bros U Deluxe when it launches on Friday. Our UK Chart series also returns
today after a week off so make sure to keep an eye out for that and of course,
FIFA 19 Team of the Year kicks off at 6pm too so I will also have an article
discussing all the details from what is probably the second biggest FIFA promo
of the year. These next few days will see me play some more Pokemon Go,
prepping for the community day this Saturday, FIFA, as I try to pack a TOTY
item (wish me luck) and probably some more Smash Bros as I’m really into it at
Discussion: Do you think we will see next gen consoles this
Georges answer: I do actually think we will, I’m not sure if
they will launch in 2019 but I think we will definitely hear about them! I also
wouldn’t be surprised to hear about a hardware revision for the Switch seen as
that is approaching its second anniversary, maybe not a performance boost but perhaps
a slimmer system with a bigger screen? I can’t see them upping the resolution
just yet, I would expect to see that in a few more years.
Let us know what you think about this discussion topic down
in the comments below, lets get a discussion going!
Out This Week
Just one big release this week and its for the Switch!
Sadly, it’s a game we've already had but I’m still looking forward to it none
the less, check out the product links below to get your copy.
