Sony's Best Franchises Not Enough To Beat Nintendo

Chris Buffa (Modojo): In the head to head match-up against Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, some feel Sony has outmaneuvered Microsoft with a variety of critically acclaimed first party franchises, including Uncharted, Resistance, Infamous, God of War and Wipeout.

I can't lie, I think Sony now outpaces Nintendo in terms of quality first party variety. I still think that Zelda is better than any of Sony's franchises, but Nintendo is rinsing and repeating the same franchises, with next to no new core IP's this generation. Course I'm looking forward to Skyward Sword and the next Pikmin and Smash Bros on Wii U, but Sony has embarrassed the competition this gen with their first party efforts. Sure they don't sell as much as Nintendo games but the variety is there. Only first party IP's I look forward to these days from Nintendo are:

Zelda
Mario
Mario Kart
Donkey Kong
Golden Sun
Pikmin
Smash Bros

Sony has

God of War
Resistance
Killzone
Little Big Planet
Heavy Rain
Uncharted
White Knight Chronicles
Demons Souls

etc etc.

Next generation needs to see an emergence of first party IP's. Real talk.

some of the new IPs sony has created this generation and i love them all , i love Zelda , i really do ( TP was the only reason i got a wii ) but zelda alone wont do the trick next gen hopefully nintendo bring more exciting new IPs next gen because im pretty sure sony will create new ones as exciting as the current ones or even better , i was a nintendo fan before i started playing on playstation, but im not 6 years old anymore

well they had the motion controller first so that would be something innovative but still not good enough in my opinion , its ok if they wanna keep bringing the marios , zeldas , yoshis and all that but mix them with new IPs , hopefully they adopt a good online service and full HD next gen with a little more mature games too

I agree as well. After playing so many Mario's and Zelda games I start to get tired of playing the same old characters over and over again. The reason why Nintendo holds onto these old franchises is because they manage to sell them to their loyal fans. I hope in the future Nintendo will come up with a ton of new IPS for the WiiU.

I think new IPS will be introduced for the Wii U, since nintendo is entering the HD arena.
