Wow! Looks like Nintendo copies a lot from it as well. You never know what the past is going to bring up.
Did it ever occur to you that since they were working together before the PS release that Nintendo shared with them their idea for M64 and Sony took the concept and did their own game just like they took the Snes controller and made it there own thing?
muahahahahaha- you mean Nintendo showed Sony their plans?lol.
And when? in 1992 when they worked with nintendo on the psx before nintendo did with them what they did with many?And than Sony went to polyphony digital and told them:"Well ,Nintendo even has not started to work on their new console but they already started coding mario64 and they were so stupid to show us all their plans"
Sadly polyphony messed it up.Though Sony knew about Mario64 they made jumping flash a first person game instead of a third person game?
I'd say that polyphony never heard of 3d mario when they started making this game.They simply wanted to show the potential of the ps1 and showing that first person games don''t have to be always shooters.
