It looks like mixing apples and oranges to me. Also Sony has already a varied 1st party lineup. An Xboxendo would make more sense to me.

I would love it. Sony makes the home consoles, Nintendo makes the portables, and they both make software for them. Its a win/win situation.



I think it's an awful idea and these threads should die already.



They are sworn enemies, it's not even possible. Neither would accept. They have tried to work together before, there's no more trust.



That would be awesome, I have to buy all my games for one system and only a hand full for the other. :)



Don’t follow the hype, follow the games

Sony's ability to make games for a wide range of audiences? We are on a sales website, for god's sake.

Anyway, no. Such a merger has no real benefits for me, but quite a few drawbacks. Hardware would be more expensive to buy, online multiplayer would be behind a paywall (thus no online for me, the few times I care to use it), the amount of games I would want to buy wouldn't increase substantially.



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

Sony used to publish their games on the NES & SNES, it was only when Sony released the Playstation that they stoped releasing games on Nintendo systems.  The Playstation itself, as I'm sure you know, started out as a joint project between Sony & Nintendo to create a CD add-on like the Sega CD but for the SNES.  For what ever reason, probably watching Sega's struggles with the Sega CD, Nintendo decided to scrap the idea & stick with cartradges for the remainder of the generation & the next.  Sony however where still interested in creating a CD based game system & decided to go it alone without Nintendo & created the Playstation.

All this was over 20 years ago, both companies have remained mostly civil with each other & had their own ups & downs.  I see no reason that they couldn't work together again.

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.


Seriously? More power does not equal innovation. Nintendo takes more chances with hardware.


I actually would like to see a merger.  I would prefer a merger over Nintendo going 3rd party. 
They would have both great home console and handheld devices.

Nice idea, but ultimately I doubt either company would want to venture that direction again

I know all that, and despite their civility to each other, I doubt they will ever work together again.
