I don't see the big deal, but I guess that's just me. They offer plenty of new and interesting content to offset the apparent "milking", and frankly, if any company is more guilty of the "milking" process of the big three, it's Nintendo, but that's besides the point and not really a bad thing.


I agree. I also disagree when people only take into account the "main mario titles." If you look at the amount of Mario branded titles released over the wii's life, he is clearly milked, but his games are often high quality so it is pretty hard to complain lol.

During the PS1, and PS2 era Sony had 3rd parties keeping them on top. Now that they don't they are working more on 1st party games. The problem is those games have no impact on the industry or hardware when it comes to sales. Games like LBP, and Infamous, and Uncharted. May be great for the industry when it comes to new creative ips. Still the month to month industry growth numbers. Little to no impact at least this generation. The more these huge new games fail to make them real money. The sooner they will dissappear or get passed to someone else. Remember Sypro, and Crash. Those guys where new, but not really big time. Now they float from developer to developer. If Sony new games had as much of a impact as Wii series games, or even something like Mario games. Then you would have a point.  Your point of view is really only about being a fan or gamer. Still I bet at one time people who loved Neo Geo, and Dreamcast. Thought the same thing about the new games they were making.

 

Also Sony games that have had or will have 2 to 3 this generation are.

Ratchet and Clank, Infamous, Uncharted, Motorstorm, Killzone, LBP, and Resistance! Since Ratchet and Clank was created there has been more of those games. Then 3d and 2d Mario games combined. Where Nintendo has made Wii Fit that has out sold them all combined. The moral is there are those that need many, and those we need a few!

Milking a character is alot different than milking a franchise. Mario is in alot of different games. Were Ratchet is in alot of games. 5 different experiences featuring Mario is better than 3 sequels of Ratchet and Clank!



 

Just because someone is saying something different. Doesn't mean their point of view is right!

You can't be the best publisher when you are so bad at marketing. Nintendo is the best.

Man this would have made my day if it were a thing that actually happened and not NOTHING.



Sure Sony is a good publisher but their are nowhere near as good as Nintendo.  Nindendo created and published 23 of the top 25 best selling games of all times.  They have the best selling new IP of this generation in Wii Sports (not counting games that where bundled).  Also look at Wii Music the game was one of the worst new IP off all times and still went on to sell close to three million copies.  And even with its horrible hardware problems on the 360, Microsoft  managed to sell over 25 million more games when you compare the total sales of games published by Microsoft versus games published by Sony Computer Entertaiment on the 360 vs the PS3.  Also since the PSP pretty much was a flop software wise with no new major IP's its hard to give Sony too much credit this generation.

i thought we were sticking away from sales? Sure microsoft and nintendo sell a lot (microsoft relies on heavy advertising), but sony is the best at quality and variety. The only other publisher i can think of that comes close to sony is probably nintendo with their super mario galaxy, donkey kong, etc.

If the quality and variety really where that great it would generate more sales.  Also Microsoft doesn't advertive that much I see a lot more adds by Sony and Nintendo on TV.
