I dont think it's possible. A game that forces u to get out of home is something unique.

DS fittness games, that plaza game and all the AR games on play store and IOS.

Pokemon Go was only a phenomenon because of the strength of the Pokemon brand.

No because they never had a real big Hit anime/cartoon for their games!



The Bitch is back! And better then ever! #BritneyReturns

SONY Bring them BACK for PS4 and VITA!

I don't think so.
And I don't see what's the big deal with pokemon go.It's a shitty mainstream phone game.

is nintendo?

niantic did all the work of creating the genre before nintendo ever got involved.

Sure, but that isn't what is asked in the OP. Ingress never made nearly as much buzz as Pokemon Go does.

Why you will not convince me I have chosen bad consoles. / awesome Miiverse art / my greatest games list

Bet with platformmaster918 and ethomaz about PS3 overtaking Wii in total sales.

Predictions: Switch / Switch / Switch / MHWorld / GOW > BOTW / Switch vs. XB1 in the US

No, it's not Pokémon. Maybe Capcom could with Monster Hunter.

Oh, that would be quite a use for AR, if the Monster is rampaging in your city. And hundreds of fellow hunters join you in the fight to bring the beast down. This could be epic.

No, and tbh thats probably a good thing.

Agreed. Don't want them shifting to mobile, something Nintendo may do if the NX tanks.  And while Sony may not be doing it with SW, they are constantly doing it with HW.  You had the Walkman back in the day, a huge phenomenon, and more recently the PS brand, which has become synonymous with gaming in a lot of countries.

This is a pretty good comparison, the walkman surely was a cultural phenomenom like Pokemon Go is today. Even today a movie like Guardians of the Galaxy features the walkman.

With their current Ips? Not even remotely close.

maybe not with their IPs, but they have a little thing called 3rd party, GTAV, COD BO3, nuff said, destroys everything nintendo

Popularity isn't asked for here. Sure GTA, COD, Battlefield, Halo are very popular. But do they create a cultural phenomenom?

Would a master chief hell march catch on like this:

I can talk to my sister or my mother about Pikachu and they have an inkling what I talk about. But Master Chief? COD doesn't even feature something memorable, no figure, scenery or something else associated with. Assassins Creed have Templars and Assassins, but both words are more well known for their original meaning for the Everyday Joe. How much T-Shirts with battlefield themes do you have compared to Pokemon themes? That is a cultural phenomenom.

That said, Minecraft does have the potential.

"Can Sony or Microsoft create a cultural phenomenon like pokemon go"? A: yes they already have with PS and Xbox. 

Do you understand what a cultural phenomenom is? Yes, XBox and PS are popular consoles and brands, but cultural phenomenoms are different. Do you see much T-shirts with funny PS or XBox related themes? What is with Pokemon?

Or an Playstation march: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLdgM8VQu7I

As someone already said: Walkman was a culture phenomenom, Playstation is just popular.

Minecraft might work though.
