Mark Cerny has told a conference in Spain that he dreams of PlayStation having the same kind of enduring impact on the games industry as Nintendo. (Mark Cerny, PS4)

IMO they already have, I know a lot of people raised on Playstation and not nintendo. Playstation has a number of memorable games like nintendo systems have. They both have different, but great legacies. They're both really great gaming companies and I love them both, and I don't want to see either of them leave anytime soon.

Totally agree.Both are already well cemented in the industry hall of fame forever.

Personally, i grew up playing Nintendo and Playstation (more nintendo back in Snes days) But as i grew up, Playstation grew up with me while nintendo kind of stayed the same.

I tend to think of the companies as, Nintendo being that old friend from elementary school who you just kind of stopped hanging out with over the years.Playstation being that longtime best friend you had, and get along with so well.Xbox is like that annoying 3rd wheel kid who tries so hard to hang out with you and playstation.Then there is PC, who is your asshole of a big brother.

Something like that lol

We should all thank Nintendo and Sega for Sony PlayStation.

Mark Cerny is such an inspired humble genius.

No they don't and this guy is right plus every top developer will agree end of Nintendo for quality are the benchmark.

I like the differences between the two.

Sony will never be Nintendo and Nintendo will never be Sony and that is ok. It's how it should be.

There are experiences you can't have on Sony that you can with Nintendo and the other way around.

It would be boring if every company was the same or tried to make the same games.
Triforce079  +   390d ago
Your right Sony do quick graphic heavy same old gameplay games with low frame rates to add even more detail,and Nintendo make complete game experiences,Sony's 1st party games are coming out almost as quick and rushed as EA's yearly rubbish....

Nintendo and SONY need to stay forever! I love both of these company's. I could not see gaming any other way. Nintendo gives the bright colorful fun worlds to play and SONY shows that darker side of gaming that we all like to dip into as well lol I will support BOTH of these gaming company's whole heartedly. As it is I already spend close to 4 grand a year on gaming. Nintendo and SONY will get my support for how ever long they decide to stay.

nypifisel  +   390d ago
This is actually true. Every single franchise Nintendo has practically came out of Miyamatos brain.
AnimeAvenger  +   390d ago
Just like how Sony is nothing without Naughty Dog
SoapShoes  +   390d ago
Not really, they have other studios like Santa Monica that are just as talented. Plus Sony operated without owning Naughty Dog for a while and only had 4 games from one franchise by them on PS1 while Miyamoto has created several franchises for Nintendo.
AnimeAvenger  +   390d ago
@SoapShoes

I'm just repeating what other PS3 owners have said. Naughty Dog is the sole reason some people are buying a PS4.
a_bro  +   390d ago
not really, people are talking about infamous: second son, and thats a sucker punch title. people are buying a PS4 for lots of other reasons besides naughty dog. you can never go wrong with Sony's 1st party studios, they always bring their big guns.

Also, Mark Cerny is the Bob Ross of gaming, just because of how he explains what he did with the system. Happy little clouds...

"Naughty Dog is the sole reason some people are buying a PS4."

Just one GT from Polyphony Digital would sell more than a lot of Naughty Dog titles combined.... -_- A Sony Santa Monica title would probably sell just as much... Hell, Sucker Punch's Infamous SS is actually the most talked about exclusive right now. More than any others....

So the same could be said for any other studio...

"Just like how Sony is nothing without Naughty Dog"

-_______- No, just no.... In NO way is that similar...

Miyamato = Pretty much ALL of Nintendo's franchises.

Naughty Dog = Crash, Jak, Uncharted, The Last Of Us.

^^^ LOL! Sony has A LOT more IP's, just as popular as those kiddo.

I would say that not only Sony has surpassed Nintendo in defining gaming in general but are also right on track to lead it into the future.

Sony will lead the next gen of gaming with their amazing PS4 console and great expertise and willingness to put gamers first.

The next generation of gamers will find that our entertainment medium "Videogames" is the absolute best one and is above and beyond anything else out there.

A medium that relates and connects to other ways entertainment but has it's own entity and is not here to be a part of the group rather than to be the leader worldwide.

I'm going to getting my ps4 with a bottle of champagne to celebrate with the champ.

Congrats Sony!

Nintendo saved gaming and Sony made it mainstream. Imo these are the the most important companies in the history of this industry and I'll support them both.
MakiSaad2  +   390d ago
100% TRUE
Garrison  +   390d ago
Nintendo saved CONSOLE gaming. Gaming was being done on the PC just fine.
RussellGorall  +   390d ago
You could also say the long console generation this time has saved PC gaming.
jcnba28  +   390d ago
Sony made it mainstream? I'm sorry but who was the company that made the Wii? You know the console that brought millions of non-gamers into the industry.
Imalwaysright  +   390d ago
Really? Tell me which is the best selling console of all time?
hazardman  +   390d ago
I think its awesome to know where Sony is trying to go with the PS brand. Im an old school gamer. Been playing video games since 86. Nintendo and Sega are the only ones on my mt Rushmore of gaming...but im already making room for Sony!
Garrison  +   390d ago
I miss the old Sega badly.
mkotechno  +   390d ago
Ok, then keep the legacy live and release a new WipEout!!!

If anybody wants the best gaming site out there, this is the site, Eurogamer.

This is coming from an American.

One of the few places to find any semblance of journalism.
CrimsonStar  +   390d ago
LOL N4G is the best????
RussellGorall  +   389d ago

windblowsagain  +   390d ago
It's actually quite easy to win gens. But some of them don't seem to grasp it.

JAPAN - RPG'S, UNIQUE EXPERIENCES, Big on story, honor etc.

USA - FPS/TPS/ Story, Mp sweetness.

EUROPE - FPS/RACING/TPS/RPG/. Good Story.

I know there are many types of games within each Genre. But Play to each countries likes, and you'll do well.

I wish I can want a wii u! But Nintendo are gods so are Sony . Imagine if Microsoft fell out the gaming biz, and burry all thier ips wouldn't let anyone touch em. That won't be good I think Microsoft made a nice spot in the biz too. Just keep the goodz coming all company's please!!'
jcnba28  +   390d ago
When it comes to quality, Nintendo just can't be beaten.
