Nintendo & Sony Combine Okay Again!

Nintendo and Sony used to be the best of pals during the 16 bit era with the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.

Is it time for them to join forces again?

They must join forces or they will not survive the ever increasing pressure from the likes of huge American companies like Microsoft, Apple, Western developers, publishers and emerging entertainment hardware like smart phones and tablets.

Japan video game industry is really in great danger right now but I want Nintendo's and Sony PlayStation's tradition and culture to remain strong, relevant, alive and kicking.

I also don't want all the Japanese developer and publisher's who depend's so much on these two pillars of gaming to suffer... if one of them ever goes out of the race because NEC, Neo Geo, Sega outage from the console race were so tragic enough.

Sony and Nintendo should help each other because the Japanese game industry is being choked every minute every second of the day. What would happen if these Japanese developers fall one after the other because they could not compete with their multi-million dollar counter parts in the West?

I love shooters like Uncharted & Killzone but what would happen if all we have are western shooters and no variety?

I believe with Sony's established mainstream core gaming brand + Nintendo's established family friendly & casual reputation operating under one roof then we could say we will have a well balanced Western ( SCEA & NoA) & Eastern (SCEJ & NoJ) video games ecosystem that is impregnable from threats of the other forms of entertainment & industry.

we all heard of great companies merging together to keep their business stronger than ever like Namco-Bandai, Activision-Blizzard, Square-Enix etc etc. thus having more power and numbers to do even greater stuff than before.

Nintendo + Sony should leave all their differences behind them and deal with the greater solution needed by the Japanese industry.

Edit:
Sony and Nintendo has two options if they combine forces again:
1) Either let each other conduct their own business as usual with their respective target markets yet share the profit.
or
2) Make a Unified Gaming System capable of playing both Nintendo's and Sony's first party franchises which will make hardware production less expensive and share the profit.

For the greater good Nintendo and Sony PlayStation should help each other AGAIN to keep the Japanese gaming scene alive and growing.

If Nintendo and Sony joined up, their first-party line-up would be insane.

Nintendo and Sony have very different approaches to their businesses. Just look at their games and advertisements. Also, Killzone is made by a Dutch developer, not American. Where'd you get your info?

If you think about it Sony and Nintendo are very similar in their approach. The only difference is that Nintendo has the creativity to makes new hardware [Sony steals their ideas] while Sony is more liberal with the development process of their first party studios [Nintendo's way too strict on this regard and that's why they have so many Marios (casual), Zeldas(core) and Metroids(core); they don't let their first party studios create new stuff and the few times they do it never comes out to the west]. But they both try to cater to the biggest audience they can.

MS found their money tree with Kinect and basically abandoned the core gamers. Meanwhile Sony is trying to cater to the casual but without leaving behind the core gamers and Nintendo is trying to do the same.

As big as Nintendo and Sony are now, they would have the least of worries from apple who would just be starting off, and for Microsoft i think they are also big enough to rid of any new gaming console that comes out.

It would probably never happen but Sony and Nintendo combined would be an unstoppable force. Forget the console wars if this happened. With their combined tech, experience and first party developers they will destroy any future consoles. Maybe I exaggerate a little but Sony and Nintendo even at their weakest are still forces to be reckoned with. Maybe if Sony brought Nintendo. Is that possible?

It's possible but I don't think Nintendo would EVER want to be bought.

Unless things went even more downhill for them, I just wouldn't want Sony to listen to Nintendo's silly ideas for future consoles. It's only the games I would be interested in. I would be scared that Nintendo would suggest these "casual" ideas and things that have gotten them in this situation with the mixed reception towards the Nintendo Wii U and the 3DS price cut.

Don't want Sony to go down that road do we, as long as Sony stuck to what they do best and Nintendo kept making games for them I think that would be amazing.

If Sony and Nintendo combined forces, I call dibs on Cloud on the next Super Smash Bros game. xD

On a serious note, I think the 2 should join forces. Them combined would combine all of the nintendo and sony fans under 1 banner in other word if/when they make a new console, they would make huge sales and provide epic 1st party games.

They would be unstoppable that's for sure.

Can you say 400mil console sales and if not pretty damn close. I know i would buy at least 3 of the consoles & almost every 1st party title if it becomes reality.
miyamoto  +   1118d ago
you got the whole Japanese gaming industry backing the Nintendo Sony video game home & portable gaming devices in case it becomes reality.

.............wow this was not interesting at all. sony is not dying or isnt really that in trouble. just cause they messed up on 1 generation doesnt mean its over all over for them. nintendo has been struggling in the console race ever since sony hit them with the ps1. heck look at sega they released add ons that did not even sell. they were still struggling with the saturn. then after the 32bit era not only did nintendo had to go against the PS2 and DC they also had to compete with the xbox. and lol at square merging with enix. i dont know why you even mention them 2 being a powerful. square hasnt done anything to please ppl besides handheld games. xbox had just hit the scene. they didnt struggle to find a fanbase. but obviously they didnt have alot of what sony had during the that era. Look were MS is with the 360. besides nothing will happen to sony. they make other stuff besides video games. nintendo should be the one to worry. as they are a video game company. they dont have a movie studios or make an OS
