Extremely High Demand For Nintendo Switch in Kuwait That Caused Increase in Prices

There is so much demand for video game consoles during the corona crisis. The highest demand is for Nintendo Switch and then Playstation 4. I am so surprised that Nintendo switch cost about $300 which is around 92 KD before the crisis. Now the world wide stock of Nintendo Switch is so low that caused increase in prices due to demand. Before the corona crisis, Nintendo Switch was selling for 115 KD in Kuwait, and sometimes 106 KD + a game. Now the cheapest price I found was 145 KD at AlFuhod and the most expensive is 169.9 at Xcite. I asked my friends who own stores in Rehab Comples about the reason that Nintendo Switch is selling out. They said parents need to keep their kids quite at this time since they are spending time with them much more than ever. Playstation 4 was at the end of cycle so it isn’t worth the investment right now and Playstation 5 is releasing at the end of the year.

Where To Pre-Order Playstation 5 (PS5) in Kuwait

The release of Sony Playstation 5 (PS5) this year will be totally different than previous years, because Sony PS5 will release globally at the same time. Now the big question is where to pre-order PS5 in Kuwait. I honestly don’t want to pay above market prices, which is something I used to do a lot back in the day. Going to Rehab Complex and seeing prices where they switch the original price in $ to KWD and still buy the product will never happen again. The first week of release usually have the highest prices then it drops gradually.

PS4 Dreams is The Most Creative Game Ever

I have always wanted to create my own video game, but the way to develop is extremely complex. Playstation created a very simple engine called Playstation Dreams to develop video games. I was impressed to see creations like Sonic, Mario, and Metal Gear. All games at the early stages, but the concepts are impressive. Since kids are completely out of school, it is a good time to utilize their talent and create wonderful Playstation games.

God of War 4 Review

Two months ago, I played a really amazing game on PS4 called God of War 4. I spent around 3 weeks playing the game and I can say it is one of the best games ever. Santa Monica studio is an impressive studio, and it is considered one of the main assets for Sony. When I saw the trailer of God of War 4, I was impressed with the graphics and the acting. The clever part is that Sony didn’t show much of the game, so I had no clue what I was getting into. They did set expectations lower than what they delivered and that was a genius move. When I finished the game, I tried so hard to beat the Valkyries and it took me few days to beat them all. One day I played more than 8 hours just to beat the Queen Valkyrie.

I wanted to buy the collector’s edition from my very favorite video game store in Kuwait which is ProGaming. Sadly I didn’t expect the collector’s edition to sell out very fast. Now I constantly check Pro Gaming website which is pgaming.com to see what other collector’s edition games they have.

Lets see what will I play during this summer.
