As every year, the editors of iGamesNews wish you the best for the next year, may all your wildest wishes come true, both personally and professionally. All editorial offices are obviously joining in with these wishes in order to end 2020 for good Dose of horribilisand start 2021 in much better shape. At least we hope so …
As you know, this year 2020 is going to have been very strange in many ways. Containment, containment, reconnection … and so on (and worse). In these conditions, it is not easy to remain calm and do coherent collective work, especially if we are not necessarily all in the same boat.
The arrival of the next generation in the editorial office has really forced us to show “flexibility” and imagination, but also extra working hours to ensure them a minimum of living. I hope you enjoyed that!
“The quote” isn’t
Somehow we also managed to finish the missions commonly referred to as podcasts (break during the vacation break at the end of the year) and create another meeting that is now essential The daily
The GB team is on site
The time to thank all the core teams, but also the freelancers who, at the risk of their lives, bring us human warmth and tests if their agenda as ministers or supervisors of the impossible is not overloaded. In all honor of the ambulance and the airport Dopamine, but also will, eve, Joniwan, Filipe, Yann, VRSings, Rami, Olivier Cortinovis, Without forgetting Nerces. Hoping that they will continue to support us mentally to start 2021 in better patronage (and love).
Of course, we will not forget you, dear readers of all kinds, for your loyalty, and without whom all this would hardly be possible, as well as all moderators of the website, young and old (sorry for the premium evening promised for so many months, snibirf …) . Thank you a thousand times!
What de l’Annee 2021?
It’s hard to project into 2021, let’s be humble. What about E3, TGS and other PGW shows? Will they move into the “profit and loss” category due to this covid life or is there still a (meager) hope of seeing them “live” again? This is the 1 million Brouzoufs question. Anyway, we’ll believe it until the end and hope that everything will go back to “normal” to some extent. Without continuing to do anything and everything. The madness of the people, everything has …
In short, it will be necessary as much as possible to remain vigilant while remaining true to our somewhat disturbed “habits” and most importantly, adapting to whatever it is. Indeed, 2020 has taught us that it is possible to “act differently” without falling into the trap of major video games such as trade shows, awards shows, interviews and other live game presentations and so on.
Spearhead of the PS5 and Xbox series … and the Switch Pro?
Obviously, the versions of the next-generation PS5 and Xbox series consoles were somewhat limited by these multiple readjustments, which made the manufacturers’ well-oiled strategy bad. This did not prevent these two war machines from flowing continuously, although the shortage continued to decrease by the end of the year. Indeed, it is not easy to get one of these machines (especially the PS5 a priori) and not everyone will have one under the tree as the whole production chain is affected and undoubtedly demands much more. strong than expected.
If everything is set up correctly again, 2021 should make it possible to serve everyone by the end of the financial year, next March. As for the possibility of a Switch Pro launching a particular Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, nothing is less certain, as Switch sales have peaked for many weeks. Nintendo does not have a habit of skipping the steps of a well-established strategy. But let’s face it, it would be a nice surprise from the Kyoto manufacturer and undoubtedly a fairer “weapon” to fight against the two “big” consoles from Sony and Microsoft. But until then, what tension …
Dear Aminches … It is high time you …
Happy New Year 2021 everyone on behalf of all the editors of iGamesNews (in my life)!
