With 45 million players worldwide, “Fortnite” has become the most popular video game on the market. The online shooter was officially released on Sept. 26, 2017 in conjunction with the multiplayer mode “Battle Royale” which enables players on platforms such as Playstation, Xbox and PC to play with their friends.

The one aspect that people have mainly been talking about is the lack of a headphone jack. What Apple wants the customers to do is buy the new “air pods,” which are Bluetooth headphones that come at a costly price.

Sophomore Kat Saylor said, “Honestly, I don’t like it having no headphone jack because I don’t want to spend $200 on headphones that I’m probably going to lose.”
