Recently, the “Ship Traffic Jam” incident on the Suez Canal has affected the gaming industry. This “Ship Traffic Jam” incident has had a significant impact on the transportation of goods in Asia and Europe. It has a particularly strong impact on electronic products such as PS5, which are mainly produced by Asian factories. It is expected that the global supply of PS5 will drop significantly in the future. At the same time, experts estimate that the delay in cargo transportation caused by the ship’s trapping may last for at least several months. If your goods or parcel does not arrive at any time, please don’t be mad at your deliveryman.
Next, due to the impact of the pandemic, many offline game exhibitions, anime exhibitions, and other events have been canceled or delayed. The activities that will be affected in 2021 summarize all activities from large to small. Although E3 has been canceled and going to use online mode, there is still no more information announced, only notified that it will be carried out in an online mode. The second is PAX East 2021, this large event has also decided to adopt an online mode and postpone it from June to July 15th.
However, there is good news. For example, Tokyo Game Show 2021 will be held online from September 30th to October 3rd, and the theme this year is “We’ll always have games”. However, it seems that there is no need to worry about issues such as postponement but stay tune in case there are any incidents.
The next one is quite special, a Japanese “Apex Legends” player was playing the game, then he was reported to have hate speech which causes his account to get suspended. After investigating the reason, it was discovered that he was banned only because he said: “Nigero” (Japanese for Run Away). Although it is very close to N-word, the meaning is not the same at all.
The above is today’s daily game news, do remind everyone to be careful when speaking, to not be banned for a ridiculous reason like this Japanese player. Anyway, see you tomorrow!
