Sony Ranks Second and Nintendo Seventh Between Companies the Japanese are Most Proud of

The Japanese are known to be very proud of their local corporations, but which ones are they most proud of? The business firm Risk Monster sought to answer that question via a recently published survey titled “Japanese Companies to be Proud of in Front of the World,” and Sony and Nintendo are in the top 20. (3DS, Nintendo, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, Sony, Wii U)

indeed Nintendo is impressive as well because they only make video games to be in the top 10 and all you do is video games is a great honor congrats to Sony for placing 2nd

"Nintendo’s result is especially significant, considering that it’s the only company in the top 20 that makes only video games and consoles"

Does the article writer realize Nintendo has been around for over a 100 years? They have done just about everything including making playing cards (their start) and running a love hotel (I'm not kidding). This fact means that the Nintendo name has been known to Japan LONG before they did only video games and consoles.

Right lets vote up a company because of what they did 100 years ago /s
All they do, in this day and age, is make videogames. That's all theyve done sincr the 80's. The author's statement is correct because it is in the present tense, not the past.

Agreed on Honda > Toyota, but personally I would also say Subaru, Mitsubish and Nissan are all better than either... They obviously aren't as popular though, Toyota is a name you can say in a isolated small village in some forgotten corner of the world and people will still know what you're talking about.

@Army_of_Darkness - Samsung/LG/Sony LCD's > All.

Sharp is near the bottom of the barrel, heck even Vizio is surpassing Sharp in regards to LCD HDTV quality, picture accuracy and overall advanced technology.

Both Sharp and Panasonic would never be TV brands I would consider. My primary choice would be Samsung, then LG then Sony.

lilbroRx  +   176d ago
That is a total lie. How are you getting agrees for that?

Nintendo didn't agree with the deal for the same reason they didn't agree with the Origin deal EA tried to make. Sony/EA wanted control and dominance, but Nintendo wasn't going to give it to them. Nintendo did help with a disc based system. The Panasonic CD-i. It failed, and they stuck with the cartridge afterward.

@lil bro and other guy...

Some of use were alive when this all went down. It's easy to rewrite history when no one remembers. N was the dominant force in gaming and Sony wanted a piece of it so they offered up discs.

Nintendo refused because Nintendo was the most arrogant company and hardest to work with. It was their way or the highway. N CHOSE outdated cartridges over discs and it cost them dearly...

It's the same reason why EA has always struggled with Nintendo.

Everyone is the badguy and Nintendo does no wrong....what a crock of s***.

Wow. How are so many of you so ignorant? Sony was developing the CD addon for the SNES (actually called the PlayStation). They went back and forth with Nintendo for a while on the design, but ultimately Nintendo canceled the project because Sega's SegaCD was not commercially successful. Before cancelling it, Nintendo was in negotiations with Phillips to make the cd addon instead (albeit different than Sony's design) and terminated their agreement with Sony. This pissed off Sony, since all their time and engineering had gone to waste. So rather than abort the whole thing, they continued forward and made the PlayStation as a standalone console to compete with Nintendo and Sega. This had nothing to do with Nintendo releasing a cartridge based N64.

Wow no one remembers sony wanting to own nintendo ip? Basically making nintendo a 1st party to sony?

That was ultimately the problem in the deal. Had this went thur little big planet would have been numb lol.

Sure nintendo was hard to work with if you produced crap and carts costed an arm and a leg compared to slow bigger cds.

Nec and sega had cd based systems out along with the Pippin by guess who!

I was there during a lot of that. Sony did see it as a betrayal because they wanted in on Nintendo powerhouse and knew they where bigger. Sony had worked with Nintendo for the sound processor in the snes. The decision came at an E3 of all places. Phillips was a laughing stock at the end. Because they wanted a similar deal as sony. Nintendo effect lyrics let them borrow zelda and the worst zelda ever was made lol.

so sony wagged war against nintendo by making every thing cheaper for developers and even paying for exclusives by offering media deals for certain companies. This is where the Konami and cap come and EAs made most of their money.

After years of basically paying their way into gaming ms notices this. Unfortunately ms already had a legion of people hating windows and strong arm tactics. By the ps3 the revenge had run its course and the other products that sony made suffered ken was fired and now we sit here looking at the ps4 while sony is selling parts of it self off in order to stay afloat.

Had sony offered nintendo a better deal ms would have been decimated. Nintendo does just fine working with a bunch of different companies for disks, cpus ibm, ati now amd. None of those companies reacted like sony did they are bigger.

Yet sony is on the ropes now and Nintendo have had conservative success and can take another lose. Only ms can afford to pay their way into gaming. .. due to windows.

In the end nintendo did the right thing. Their was even a book wrote about the ps3 disaster.

I kinda agree with you there. Those divisions are Sony' best divisions. Plus the Mobile/tablet, Tv, Playstation and Entertainment divisions have blown up lately.

This above post is what you called blind fanboyism as the one right under you points out. Sony has been losing ridiculous amounts of money.

Nintendo is now worth more than Sony moreso because of how much Sony has lost than how much Nintendo has gained. Despite Nintendo posting some losses, they are still losing no where near as much as Sony.

@ scissor: I never denied that they are having problems, but if you're going to defend the notion that they are going bankrupt, you need to show me just how that is happening. Losing money doesn't simply equate to going bankrupt.

If you think they are going bankrupt, then you must also expect their current bright spots, like the PS4, to be discontinued soon. Yes?

It's not about losing. The wii and 3ds beat the crap out of the ps3 and vita earnings wise. I would also argue we got the better games.

The sore lower idea works much better for yourself. We are getting mariokart and smash which only adds to what I'm already playing. Oh 3rd party? That is what pcs are for. Sure sales are down but luckily nintendo isn't selling parts of it self. I mean did you forget about the pspgo? The experia whatever ps4 phone crap? The cell cpu design bill? I've been saying they are playing with fired since the ps2. The ps1 was cool yet the ps2 and ps3 set them up for what is now happening.

Anyways it doesn't matter. I'm sure uncharted will look just nice on the pc also. They better have a great E3.

I don't have a favorite manufacturer. I simply buy what I want. No one is gripping. I'm only stating facts to back up a point that yes sony is much more on the ropes than before. They need something to propel them forward. I think game play is a must if sony is going to rely on gaming to fix their problems.

Japan should be proud of sonys past the Walkman was big. Sony also was lead astray it seems.

As a gamer I'm not losing. I'm not much of a fanboy which is why I believe most gamers are not true fanboys they only act as such, unless they have websites lol. They, gamers, jump ship all of the time. The sore loser idea is just a deflect to ignore sony is in trouble along with Nintendo and the industry as a whole. Some blame the problem on macro economy issues while some believe we have a talent drought etc etc.

We can't talk about it because you want to believe they are not in trouble. Unfortunately comment sections are a great place to talk about it. I have no need to attack you my words are here to inform.

One reason why Nintendo is so good is because they get the most critical comments. Any professional needs good critiques to grow.

So I'm a sore loser?

I'm not sure what I lost? Did you gain anything?
I get nothing from sales or pr hype. I also don't own a website. So what did I lose? Nothing I believe of any worth. Is this your way of coping with bad news?

It's fine you can keep attacking me and ignoring the writing on the wall. I don't think sony would listen to gamers that want game play either.

It is very possible that gaming can not fix sonys problems. If sonys gaming sector doesn't preform well their stock could be hit... which would crippled them. Kaz has alot of fires to put out. They may not go bankrupt but they can not operate like the sony of the past.

1988 Nintendo and Sony had a joint project to create a CD-ROM for the Super Famicom.
Nintendo went the ass backward route they are still taking and every other console went on ahead.

But its, to you know, make money and survive, Nintendo is looking just fine at the "rich kids table."

Also there are just a ton of documentation to how Sony wanted full rights and licensing to any Nintedo game produced on the SNES-CD joint venture. Not exactly a good deal for Nintendo, then and now.

How many wii's you think landed as party games for when guests come over? while most of the gaming was done on 360 or ps3 or pc? Cause I know many who got a wii for it to end up paper weight.

N64 was my last N console. After N refusing to move ahead along with their fans like every console and pc gaming has done I have nothing but contempt for them.

Well, Nintendo's the first consideration for me. I couldn't imagine gaming without a Wii U and 3DS. Not to say I don't like the other consoles, cause I own a PS4 and Vita, and will be buying an X1 when a slim comes out.

I like em all, but being a gamer and NOT playing games like DKC Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8, Zelda Link Between Worlds, Fire Emblem Awakening or Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate would be too much to bear. I'd probably end up hanging up my controller for good.
