They made great games when they were third party, even more the reason to go third party.

You initially said that Nintendo should be third party now because Sony was before them. That wasn't the case.

The complete truth is that before that 2nd gen era (coleco vision and all), Nintendo was also a manufacturer, and made a first gen tennis console (back when consoles didn't use cartridges but had games loaded in the ROM).

Pretty fascinating stuff. :)

Basically Nintendo skipped gen 2 and so was open to releasing DK on 2nd gen consoles, that's until the Famicom came out ;)

Completely off-topic, but last year I got the TV-Game 15 off eBay from Japan boxed and complete. That means the only hardware (not counting all the redesigns) I'm missing is a Game & Watch and the Virtual Boy.

Why did I get it? Because I could .

Im a Xbox guy, and this idea makes no sense. As long as you got a console of your own, you stay off the competition. Simple.


Microsoft was involved in the making of games for the DS while having the x360.

 

Just saying...

Hey, like college, everybody experiments once in a while. I won't hold it against them lol

Older and wiser. Still bias and proud though ;)

Because I can't think of any Sony handheld game that would do particularly well on the 3DS. It's just not worth it in my opinion.

Are they selling particularly well on Vita?



Because I'd want to combine the strengths of both companies, not their weaknesses.

So Sony's weakness is game development.

Plus points for honesty.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I don't see Sony as a company going third party because they have the ps4 and its doing pretty good but the vita not so good. They should go away from portal and stay with consoles.



The Legend of Zelda: Darkness U

You lost me in the second sentence. What is this "Sony games" you speak of and what does it do?

No, but with the Vita it's their system they have to at least try and help it. They aren't making games on Vita for profit. They are making them to make the system more desirable. That's why I think making games for the 3DS would just be wasting resources for little profit.



Or Sony stops with the Handheld stuff and brings those games as "PSN" Games for the PS3/4?
Maybe even connect them to an App on Android phones/tablets were you are able to access and play them.

Lets do it like that

Sony Handheld goes either to PSN or 3DS
Nintendo Console Games go 3rd Party on PS4
Xbox goes either 3rd Party for PS4 or SteamBox/PC.
All the losing ones help the others and no competition exists anymore!
