The thing is if they did then people would call them for copying Nintedo

Well nintendos copying skylanders.

I mean i doubt if Sony as a corporation cares whether or not people think they're "copying". The PS Move proves that. If there's money to be made they'll consider it.

I cant say i'd find this working for sony anyway unless they make another PSASBR or something similar.

-Foxtrot1161d ago

Yeah but lets be honest most people are going to ignore the fact Nintendo copied EA/Activison. I see people now who try and twist it to make it look like Amiibo is totally different when it's not.

So if Sony did come out they would most likely be called at copying Nintendo, not EA/Activision.

The PS Move / Eyetoy exists even before the Wii mote / kinect
both Nintendo and M$ copied Sony in term of motion controls

Even if they had the concept of PS move before nintendo, they still released the Move knowing they would be accused of copying. That still proves they don't care as a corporation if they're accused of copying, if there's money to be made. Which isn't really a bad thing.

Well can you blame people for saying that? I mean how many times has Sony followed in Nintendo's steps in the past?

LightDiego1161d ago

Would be great, i'm waiting for the release of Amiibos to start a collection and Sony has a lot of great characters, obviously.
We also can make Super Smash Bros X PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, lol.

Well I'm just buying them mostly because their official Nintendo figurines and looks pretty awesome. I wouldn't mind if Sony did the same. Again, your not obligated to buy it so as long as it isn't forced, I'm cool with it.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo! No No No!

People bitch and moan about paid DLC and then want a system like this which is worse because it always has you buying new figurines and somehow each new version seems to require a new base every year.. It's worse than DLC

Most importantly, it's more embarassing than DLC. How do you explain your partner or (adult) visitors that you are collecting small figurines of fantasy characters? Gaming is great but I wouldn't go that far for my hobby.

marloc_x1160d ago

Not even Hunter Gascoigne?

nX1160d ago

^not even Kratos :D
I just don't see a benefit for >gaming< in these figurines, sure they can exist but Sony should not follow Nintendo in this case.

playstation has the characters, but idk figures cost a lot lol
