This starts sounding better and better

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

It only needs the games to back that one up.

Yeah, it actually shouldn't be that hard to do...

Anywho, it would never work. One company would end up overtaking another and the games/hardware/public image/whatever would never be the same. Humungous mergers like this nearly always make sacrifices.



Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

I'd be good with it. Only one console to have to buy.

You sure. What if Xbox fans leave. There would be no further confict. The eventual monotony would drive you insane. Both Nintendo and Sony fans would split, causing the cycle to repeat.

Lonely at the top kinda thing? I see your point, actually.

But to worry about that, the merger would need to happen. That essentially says that I'll never need to worry about it





No thanks, I don't want virtually the same controller over and over again and being friends with Sony fans? Oh gawd the horror!!! (jk) The only way I am on board is if Sony designs the hardware and Nintendo designs the controller and handheld with some of Sony's influsence (such as the triggers but stay away from everything else)

In any case, competition is good for the industry... Two gaming giants combining into one will have monoploy over the gaming industry, not that it matters to MS cause they can buy both of them

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

I would prefer Nintendo games on Sony hardware ;) 

Of course. You can't please everyone, which is why things are fine staying the way they are. The PS4 is nice, but I much prefer the 3DS to the Vita. Others prefer the Vita, of course, which is fine too. Having a choice is nice.

I suppose this poses a problem for people who like Nintendo games but dislike Nintendo hardware, and for people who like Sony hardware but don't care for Sony's games. But again, you can't please everyone.

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.

No, not ever.

Nintendo has always pushed innovation in hardware and gameplay, and have always brought the most unique and varied gaming experiences to Nintendo consoles. Add to that that they often release their games at a lower price point.

Sony has lacked in in these 2 areas for many many years now.

This kind of merger would hold Nintendo back.
