Do you foresee the historical 2020 Presidential Election stealing some attention from the consoles? They’ll launch right around the actual election (early November 2020). I don’t think any recent console has released in an election year, but I could be wrong about that.

The winner will probably affect how much they cost due to tariffs on China, but no they aren't going to affect the launch window.

Based on the bullshit republicans say:
Bernie will make the US the Udssr 2.0 and everyone will get a console for free

I'm trying to envision a possible scenario where it would affect the console launches....but I can't.

What kind of idiotic question is that? America isn't the only country in the world, and even still, no.

For me, yes. The results of this election have the potential to be absolutely catastrophic for the US, and that would leave a new gaming console as feeling very trivial indeed.

Will the election itself provide a material delay to the console launches? No, but if you feel insulated enough from the result of this election to still think about video games, consider yourself quite lucky.
