No, Not ever.

Playstation brand has always pushed innovation in hardware and has always tried to bring the most unique and varied New IP's to their playstation consoles. Add to that that prices of games are reduced in a timely manner.

Nintendo has lacked in these 2 aries for many many years now.

This kind of merger would hold Sony back and drive gaming into a stale ( same old same old ) routine.

Sorry, but no way.


Let me correct that for you:

The PlayStation brand has always pushed technical specifications in hardware and has always tried to bring the most new IPs to their consoles.

Nintendo has always pushed hardware innovation and has always tried to bring the most of their existing IPs to their consoles.

But yeah, pretty different philosophies.

Evolution Studios making F-Zero
Japan Studio+Retro Studios...

It doesnt go well.

Nintendo has a very family/Kid friendly brand. Sony doesnt.

How do you market one system to entirely different demographics.

Some below you would argue otherwise.

It will be tough for Sony to go back to that image imo.

I think it would make sense financially as well.

Nintendo would still get the hardware control and exclusive feel they need.

Sony would get enough first party Nintendo titles to make their handheld work.

Sounds amazing, I would love to play inFamous: Second Son on my Wii U.

I would prefer Nintendo games on Sony hardware ;)

The "something for everyone" image, I would guess?

It only needs the games to back that one up.



It's a wet dream for a lot of gamers. Nintendo Playstation would be nice.
