Good question. Do G5 ponies play video games? Pegasi might, possibly earth ponies, but unicorns might not be that far along with the tech yet. I could see something like that being a youtube short promo type thing though.

If the characters have smartphones and internet content such as streaming, it wouldn’t be too crazy to see them playing videogames. After all, that also happened in G4.

Heh. I loved how everything in G4 was old school.
The pegasi have smartphones in G5 but I didn’t see any EP’s or unicorns with one. If it turns out that they do all have phones that would really change the dynamic of how they communicate and interact. Whatever the case may be, I do hope that smartphones are used sparingly in G5.

Well yeah, you are not wrong about Sunny, she has to encounter more highly concentrated disappointment than Twilight ever faced because of that, and her situation about recovering from despair and disappointment was more difficult as well.
Meanwhile Hitch is the “safety first” opposite of Sunny.

It’s all but inevitable that the other tribes would take interest in that sort of technology. Though setting up the proper infrastructure in the other cities (especially Bridlewood which doesn’t even have electricity as far as we know) would take years.
And speaking of Bridlewood: It would be interesting to have them develop a standard of living comparable to Zephyr Heights, but primarily by way of rediscovering and refining their magic rather than just importing technology from other tribes. Though that would take long enough that we’d be ready for G6 by the time they get there.

Different strokes for different folks. Not everypony is going to embrace the tech the way the pegasi do. Maybe the Bridlewood ponies prefer the backwoods style of living. Pegasi clearly love big city life, but the Maretime Bay ponies are more the small-town-by-the-sea type, albeit with a taste for odd tech that makes them feel safe.

I’m not a big fan of the eyes Rainbow Dash has in this leak, because it looks like a model created by a fan. Bigger eyes is not enough. If you want big eyes, go watch again MLP:FiM. I wanna see different things, not the same thing over and over again. As a result, the current design the G5 characters have is much better, more consistent and more appealing.
That said, Twilight here is very cute.

If that’s what you want- stuff that’s “new” and “different,” then why do you say the same old things over and over?

Do you feel like Twilight and Sunny have more differences than similarities?

I don’t get all the “Sunny is Twilight” chatter. They are two very different characters. Yeah they have some similarities, but consider their radically different backgrounds…
Right off the bat, Twilight was an elite super-genius prodigy gifted with incredible magical ability. She was the apprentice of the ruler of her kingdom. She answered directly to the highest authority. She was effectively a representative of the established order. She was methodical and diligent.
Sunny is an average pony from a small town. She makes smoothies for a living. She is not a genius, but has a big heart and is focused on her cause. Her gift is her faith. She’s nothing particularly special, just a pony that wears her heart on her sleeve. She goes against the grain and has contempt for the status quo. She is intuitive and spontaneous.
So while Twilight was “the chosen one” in G4, Sunny is more “the trailblazer” in G5. They each took different paths to arrive at the same point of understanding.
