You probably already know that Epic Games and Apple are in legal disputes and that this issue has left us interesting news in recent days, including a leaked skin of Samus Aran for Fortnite and the possible secret between Nintendo and Xbox. Well, now more news is coming to us again.
After Epic has claimed in the past that Apple’s App Store is a money-grabbing monopoly and is therefore hurting the gaming industry, Epic founder Tim Sweeney has decided to use a Nintendo Switch to prove it: he claims that it’s much easier to play video games on an iOS device than on Nintendo’s hybrid console mainly because the mobile has its own Internet connection and doesn’t need a second device to give WiFi.
However, the curious thing is that this theory of Sweeney’s was marred by a mistake: it is shared that while the founder was trying to demonstrate this with a Nintendo Switch in hand in front of a female judge, he was actually unable to connect one of the Joy-Con to the console. This showed that Sweeney was not used to playing with a Switch often and therefore was also not in his right to defend the theory we shared above. If you don’t know how to operate a Nintendo Switch, you’re in no position to say whether it’s more or less difficult to play on it or on a mobile.
“As you can see, I’m not a Switch gamer,” Sweeney shared when it was established that he didn’t know how to operate the console. U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers, present at the time, responded, “Well, now everyone knows that. It’s okay, I’m not a gamer either.”
Unfortunately there are no scenes from the moment, only the written text that has been published in the wake of the lawsuit.
