      …This is not a publishing deal for Palworld the video game, or an acquisition by Sony, rather an attempt to make the most of the game’s huge popularity with non-video game products, such as merchandise and music…

    Players (suspicious): “So what is it you’re doing here, Sony?”

    Sony: “Merchandizing.”

    Players: “Merchandizing? What’s that?”

    Sony: “Merchandizing! Come, I’ll show you. Open up this door.”

    Fwooosh!

    Sony: “The kids love it.”

    Not gonna lie, I missed the pokemon craze as a kid. Like yeah it was there but I never really got into it.

    That said, I’d be down to get some kind of Palworld merch like a plush or something.
