Nintendo Is Literally More Valuable Than Sony Because You're All Nerd-Ass Pokémon Go Freaks

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 Pokémon fucking Go. Welp, 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 $7.5 billion.

But that’s small potatoes compared to where the company is at now because they’re worth almost $40 billion now. Sony, on the other hand, is worth a measly $38.38 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?

Yeah, yeah. Pokemon Go. Permanent part of the zeitgeist, that.

Just like Candy Crush and Words With Friends before it.

Don’t get me wrong; Nintendo was a strong company last month, and they will be after this fad dissipates. But that’s still all it is.
