Odd that they were willing to work with Nintendo, then found themselves cast against them. It's a tiny bit like the PlayStation story, except this time the "PlayStation" failed horribly.


it is like the original SONY-NINTY thing but there hasn't been anything since then so PS3 failure is another matter

I think Mr Khan was referring to the N-Gage as the 'Playstation' as they were both born out of similar circumstances according to the article.  

At least, I think

Eh? No, Nintendo stayed Nintendo. The comparison is, Once again, an outside company worked with Nintendo to create something that Nintendo ultimately rejected. This outside company then released this device on their own, to outstanding success in Sony's case and outstanding failure in Nokia's.

What? No. Nintendo worked with Sony to create a CD attachment for the SNES. Then suddenly they dropped that and went to Philips for what eventually became the CD-i, and Sony took what they had and made the PlayStation.

Yeah, Nintendo approached Sony - because Sony had helped develop the format and Nintendo was interested in using it for gaming, and because Sony hardware was already in the SNES. A contract was signed and work began, and it was only later that Nintendo decided the contract wasn't good for them and abandoned it. Sony decided to make it work, and after some legal wrangling, eventually released the PlayStation to great success.

Usually when everyone else wants to zig, Nintendo zags and makes money doing it.

So be very careful thinking that something Nintendo rejected is going to succeed for someone else.

Well, there's always the Playstation...



What people forget is,it was NOT Nintendo dropping the Nintendo Play Station project and Sony went ahead and made the Playstation that hurt Nintendo,it was the fact N64 stuck to expensive cartridges and the PS1 had cheap any easy CD roms to develop for so the 3rd parties flocked to sony.

Nintendo was right to drop the SNES CD project (look at Sega CD) it's just that N64 SHOULD have been CD.
