Cool Op, but I disagree. It's obvious (to me at least) that Sony sees the approach Apple takes and tries to emulate that. It's clear as day in their design language, and the fact that Sony has a very long history of fostering/trying to push proprietary software/hardware (this dates back to before Apples existence) helps prove my point. Go do some research on Sonys history and technological accomplishments and you'll see what I mean. Oh wait what's that? You want some examples?

Betamax
Walkman
CD
BluRay
SDDS

Were they an opportunist when they bought gaikai, in an effort to make game streaming relevant?

There's also evidence that Sony is building up its own ecosystem of products that talk to each other, spanning a wide array of smart devices. Hmm. Who else does that.

Nintendo isn't like any other company and never will be. Look at their branding. Odd controllers, games aimed for all ages, toys with NFC built in that communicate with games. You would probably draw a better comparison with Hasbro or Disney tbh. Actually yeah.

Sony is to Apple as Nintendo is to Disney. Microsoft doesn't really have a parallel that I can think of as most of their revenue comes from software/services. Which is definitely not a position Sony shares yet.

^ so much this!

Nintendo isnt a apple company, sony actually is.

Nintendo is just nintendo... they are more akin to disney than they are apple.

Nice story bro, nice to know Nintendo created gaming when they started in the 3rd generation.

apple didnt created smartphones either. There were smartphones before the iPhone. Apple just improve the technology that much and create a unique user expierence. That made them popular. Like Nintendo.

The OP said Apple created the PC and Microsoft took advantage over with it capitalism.

Then Nintendo is like Apple and Sony like Microsoft.

By the way, the Atari was very popular before Nintendo was even there, Nintendo was the one that took advantage of a weak market after a downhill period, when Sony took Nintendo they were at their prime, they had market leadership, fame, recognicion, and Sony took them down even then.

There is no sense in this thread, Nintendo was Microsoft (which once had a monopoly, Nintendo forced exclusivity to games to come to the NES and had no competition because of that) and Sony was like nothing in this sense, as nobody took Microsoft down yet in the PC world.

Oh you are right. The Note 5 is actually more powerful than the S6 which already blew the Iphone 6S plus out of the water. Wow! FYI the Note 5 is only 3 months younger than the S6.

http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Galaxy-N920-Factory-Unlocked/dp/B00716Q61I

Note 5: 819$

http://www.amazon.com/Apple-iPhone-Warranty-Unlocked-Cellphone/dp/B015E8VRWW/ref=sr_1_3?s=mobile&ie=UTF8&qid=1455034864&sr=1-3&keywords=iphone+6s+plus+32gb+unlocked

Iphone 6s plus: 905$

I was looking at looking at the 32GB model of the Note 5 first, didn't think about that. But the 32GB one is still ~100 dollars cheaper and much much more powerful

Like I said in my comment (If you read it), after you fator in a 4K screen which is about 500$, you still end up paying 1000$ less.

And sure, I can give you somethings outperforming macbook pros too:

Your ridiculous. I already prooved by several videos (speed test) and benchmark that the iPhone 6s is stronger then both the note 5 and galaxy s6, even in multicore socre (by 8 vs 2 cores) but your still claiming the samsung phones would be superior? Whats wrong with you? Are you able to READ?

 

PS: the only similar 5k screen at the moment is the Dell Ultrasharp 27 which alone is 2200 bucks. You probl dont even know the differences between 4k and 5k though.

 

PPS: "Outperforming" by using plastic case, an SSHD and not even an SSD, an Full HD LED Display (vs Retina IPS display) and just 8 GB Ram? Dude...just lol. The cheapest macbook pro (uses a HDD as well) is even cheaper btw.

You are really really unedcuated in terms of computer and mobile hardware. Just stop talking about it. Your just saying nonesense over and over again, still very amusing to read your comments :D

I dont even talk to you anymore, to obviously completly blind android fanboy who just close his eyes to not see the truth. The iPhone is and was always the strongest most powerfullst phone on the market. Android is just a cheap copy for pooor people. Handle that.

It's fine to disagree, but lets not sling personal insults at people!

Have you had that mod badge a while? I'm either really oblivious or you must have gotten a promotion

removed it. Although it wasnt really insulting. I prooved him (with videos and benchmarks) what the performance differences were and he just ignored it and claimed his favourite brand is stronger. Please explain me how this can happen without beeing highly subjective and probl a "blind fanboy who dont even bothering readin or looking at FACTS".

EG: If ill make an topic here and claiming the Xbox One would be more powerfull then the ps4 and just ignore all "facts" people throw at me with saying "Yes, the XBox is 3x as fast"...what do you think would happen? Wanna try it out?



What? But everyone wants an Iphone or Ipad, no one wants a Wii U. I mean almost no one. Apple isn't creative either. For them it's all about the product design (How it looks).

Just a bit of advice, calling someone a "blind fanboy" is never okay and is, indeed, flaming (Rule 13, Forum Rules). Try to deal with people in a less destructive manner. Makes things go smoother for everyone. :)
