Video games are a huge industry globally, so in one way or another they end up making the news on issues related to politics. For example, today the gamer community in Mexico got a good laugh after Andrés Manuel López Obrador, president of Mexico, mispronounced the name of the PlayStation 5, Sony’s new generation console.
Like every morning of a business day since he began his mandate, López Obrador addressed the media in La Mañanera, the name by which he is known to his morning conferences. Almost at the end of the one that took place this Thursday, January 7, the president showed a cartoon of the Mexican cartoonist Patricio, which touches on the theme of Three Kings Day in the midst of the pandemic.
It is a cartoon in which we see a father who reads a letter from the Magi to one of his sons. In it they inform him that they had a lot of gifts – including a PlayStation 5 – but that they could not leave it due to the confinement caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
