Sony And Nintendo, Best Friends ForeveR

The two companies almost seem like best friends. BFFs! And as a dedicated best friend, Sony has decided to do everything that Nintendo does.

The story is too old to be commented.

Another crazy article from Craptaku.

I like Sony and Nintendo both have great exclusives and free online.

What a useless rubbish flamebite article.

This crap blog called kotaku.com needs to be banned by gamers... Gamers need to stop visiting and read their stupid useless crap.

Straight up, Sony has copied Nintendo. However, they've improved on Nintendo's core design. It's something every business does. Look at phones, TV's, etc... When one company innovates the others soon follow.

If you ran a business why would you give your competition an advantage over you?

You wouldn't you would do what they did, but make it better and your own.

Same story here.

Same story with MS and Kinect "stealing" Eye Toy.

And if you want to get technical Nintendo's entire Wii U is based off Sony's Remote Play technology. Since the PS3 Sony has been all about trying to make your devices connect. PS3 and PSP were the first step. Then the Wii U comes and is basically founded on that same principle.

Nintendo tried it before with Controller Packs on N64'a Pokemon, but even then Sony's entire business strategy has been having all of their products interact with one another for decades.

There's nothing wrong with either side doing it, especially if they do it better.

no offense man, but sony's playstation 1 was gamechanger. Also nintendo has been rehashing and remaking mario, zelda, and pokemon for decades...just same game, new levels.

There's also Blu-ray. They also developed the Move in 2001 for PS2. The eyetoy came out alone in 2002. Sony also had remoteplay on the PSP 7 years ago.

And ins't nintendo just copying sony and microsoft by going into hd with their "new" console

"nintendo has been rehashing and remaking mario, zelda"

Mario 64 is nothing like Mario Galaxy and Majora's Mask is nothing like Skyward Sword. I'm going to go off on a limb and assume you have not played any of the games I just listed.

Also how is "going HD" a form of copying? Honestly, I'd really like an answer to that.

wollie1250d ago

@PopRocks

there examples of nintendo innovating, but those examples you listed are horrible. Mario 64 and galaxy are exactly the same game, and so are MM and SS.

Even the plots of the games are same, that kinda there thing you know. Every mario and zelda game is the same as the last with some new gimmick.

@wollie

wtf? Are you serious?

DivineAssault 1251d ago (Edited 1251d ago )

i know.. dual analogs, 4 triggers, dvd/blu ray game discs were just made by sega

**sarcasm**

" that can imitate but not innovate"

Nintendo: Though it was an officially licensed product, Nintendo was not involved in the design or release of this accessory. Rather, it was designed by Grant Goddard and Samuel Cooper Davis for Abrams Gentile Entertainment (AGE), made by Mattel in the United States. [licensed]

again:
WiiMote: [licensed] from http://www.gyration.com/

Microsoft: Kinect [licensed]from Primesense

Sony Playstation Move: [invented]

FACT #999 "Nintendo and Microsoft got awesome exclusives, but they lack evolutionary drive. They are like cyborgs; a robotic race that can Licence but not invent".

"Innovation differs from invention in that innovation refers to the use of a better and, as a result, novel idea or method, whereas invention refers more directly to the creation of the idea or method itself."

Mounce1249d ago

If you own a PS3, and you honestly have no idea how Sony and their internal dev stuios can 'Innovate' in comparison to what you seem to highly praise of Nintendo....

It's either you're ignorant of your own bias or fanboy'ism and you're a closet case...

Or you have Really shitty taste in games and are unable to do enough research to know what's been released and what are great games or hidden gems that are either PS3/360 exclusive or just PS3 exclusive....

The fanboy is strong with this one.

joeorc1249d ago

your Stating an opinion, not a fact, you and many other gamer's are confused what innovation is and what it's not!

"Innovation differs from invention in that innovation refers to the use of a better and, as a result, novel idea or method, whereas invention refers more directly to the creation of the idea or method itself."

Nintendo is an innovator, Sony invents

you state this:

"that can imitate"

but yet did Nintendo create the WiiMote? no

they licenced it, unlike Nintendo Sony really did invent a method for their Motion control, So if Nintendo Licenced the technology they did not invent it in the first place, so how is it that Sony is going to " imitate"

something they invented?

Deku-Johnny1249d ago

They didn't invent a method for their motion control. They copied a method that had been created before them. That's not inventive or innovative. Sony didn't imitate Nintendo with the Wiimote they imitated the guy who made it.

joeorc1249d ago (Edited 1249d ago )

the guy who made it was employed @ Sony!!!! this was Sony R&D LABS, HE HAS MULTIPLE Patents on the control scheme for pete's sake!

you know who else was at that 2000 siggraph event? Nintendo!

"They didn't invent a method for their motion control. They copied a method that had been created before them. That's not inventive or innovative. Sony didn't imitate Nintendo with the Wiimote they imitated the guy who made it."

Now your just pulling out crap out of your @ss, how do i know?

Well its very freaking simple. DR. marks in 2000 showed off the working Move concept with a working prototype software with a wand control scheme a wand with a multi- colored ball @ this is one freaking full year before gyration pitched the idea to Nintendo in 2001!

http://www.siggraph.org/s20...

see for your self 3rd down picture on the left!

Medieval Chamber
Richard Marks

here is the freaking PDF:

http://lukasz.dk/mirror/res...

that is one full frwaking year before Nintendo got their pitch, hmm did they get the idea from Sony? Nope, Nintendo never does that! LOL

oh' what's that a wand with a big colored ball with motion control gaming from a freaking PS2! ONE FULL YEAR BEFORE NINTENDO EVEN GOT THE PITCH FROM http://www.gyration.com/

so by that you heard it here first folk's Nintendo also invented Time Travel and DR. who is ripping off from Nintendo now also/ LMAO
