ShopTo News Gaming Discussion January 7th – Next Gen This Year?
| 2019-01-07

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 the moment!


Discussion: Do you think we will see next gen consoles this year?


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.


Super Mario Bros U Deluxe – January 11th – Nintendo Switch

Join Mario, Luigi, and pals for single-player or multiplayer fun anytime, anywhere!


Take on two family-friendly, side-scrolling adventures with up to three friends as you try to save the Mushroom Kingdom. Includes the New Super Mario Bros. U and harder, faster New Super Luigi U games - both of which include Nabbit and Toadette as playable characters!


Two games in one, for double the fun! Simple, straightforward controls, new playable characters optimized for younger and less - experienced players, and a wealth of bonus content-like a Hints gallery and helpful reference videos - make this a perfect choice for anyone looking to introduce their family to the wonderful world of Mario. All a player needs is one Joy-Con controller, so two people can team up right out of the box! Tackle 164 platforming courses in the two main game modes and enjoy extra replayability with three additional game modes in which you can also play as a Mii character: Challenges, Boost Rush, and Coin Battle!


So, then a solid week ahead of us with some promos, a new game and hopefully some gaming news to get excited about. Make sure to give your thoughts on the discussion topic down below and most importantly, have a great week everyone!
