Sometimes I wake up in a tizzy 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 Pokemon GO. Welp, turns out I am. Because Pokemon GO is 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 $US7.5 billion ($10 billion).
But that’s small potatoes compared to where the company is at now because they’re worth almost $US40 billion ($53.2 billion) now. Sony, on the other hand, is worth a measly $US38.38 billion ($51.1 billion). 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?
You all are freaky as hell with this Pokemon GO stuff. Like, freaky freaky.
