Editorial: Games / Facebook / Twitter / YouTube / Instagram / News / Discord / Forums

Video games are a huge industry on a global scale, so somehow they end up making the news on political issues. For example, today the gaming community in Mexico had a good laugh after Andrés Manuel López Obrador, President of Mexico, mispronounced the name of PlayStation 5, Sony’s next-generation console.

As every morning on a working day since the start of his mandate, López Obrador has frequented the media at La Mañanera, the name by which he is known during his morning lectures. Almost at the end of the one that took place this Thursday, January 7, the president showed a card by Mexican cartoonist Patricio, which addresses the theme of the Day of the Three Kings in the middle of the pandemic.

It is a cartoon in which we see a father reading a letter from the Three Kings to one of his sons. They inform there that they had a lot of gifts – including a PlayStation 5 – but that they could not leave it due to the containment caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

La Mañanera’s last moment didn’t exactly call the reason for Patricio’s clever joke. He did it because of the way Andrés Manuel López Obrador pronounced the name of the console. “This year we had your ‘Playsion 5’ out of the box” was how the president read the first line of the cartoon.
