Phil Spencer: relationship with Nintendo is “incredibly strong”

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Phil Spencer: relationship with Nintendo is “incredibly strong”

This reminds me of this:

https://www.gamespot.com/articles/more-details-on-when-microsoft-tried-to-partner-wi/1100-6441237/

It wont happen. The development mentality and scope of Nintendo's ambition are totally different than what MS has in plans. I understand that Phil is in a hard spot, but come on. Statements like these simply make him less credible. And what about this quote:

"...relationship between Nintendo and I..."

What is up with this? The relationships between him and Nintendo? Like is he a fan? What does that have to do with what relationship MS has with Nintendo? Absolutely pointless talk from a soon to be pointless bloke.

What you think and what Nintendo is thinking or what they will do, are two different things.

First, smartphone gaming become bigger than console gaming and Nintendo couldn't ignore it any more, second, we dont have real Nintendo games on iOS/Android, those are smartphone games not full Nintendo games, and third, Nintendo was very clear about why they releasing mobile games, because they want in that way to make bridge between mobile and full console games and to use it like market tool for Nintendo consoles and their full games. If you release Metroid Prime on on Xbox thats one reason less for some people to buy Nintendo console and than people would be start expecting also another Nintendo IPs on Xbox.

In any case it won't happen, it's not realistic scenario at all.

Are you looking closely..

I have followed Videogaming from the start.. And from where i'm stand.. I think MS and Nintendo working together makes very much sense for both companys.. Not only becourse Switch and One are the most different "consols" that we have ever seen i Videogaming.. but mostly becourse of the next 10 years and future to come.

First of all.. I'm 100% sure that the biggest reason MS started Xbox.. was an atemt to (with time) to be like android and ios are for smathphones for TV's.. Meaning earning money on lots of other things than games.. With how good the smartphones has become and things like cromecast.. that marked is gone. MS have tried again and again to break into it with Windows mobil.. Not with any real luck..

We all know that pc's are becomming less and less important for the mass marked and MS can see that even windows will face a hard time against android and ios the next 10 years.

Then there is Nintendo.. Nintendo has by fare the most apelling gaming ip's for the mass marked.. but they are only good at games.. not all the other things that people today expect.. the online infra stucture.. OS and PR (outside gaming) And they also lack the contacks MS have.

And now it comes..

I could see MS.. Nintendo and even Nvidia making a "total partnership" (not that money should be split in 3) where they try to take on ios and android.

Nvidia.. does not earn any today outside hardware.. so for them it would makes sense.

Nintendo.. can get a much better deal.. than just selling on android and ios.

MS will have a "final shot" to be relevant in the future.

Wii sold 100m, DS sold 155m, 3DS will end up around 75m, and now seems that Switch will be huge success, without MS. Nintendo doesnt need MS, MS is one that is becoming more irelevant on console market where PS4 killing XB1 and where all MS IP are also avalible on PC.

Like I wrote, In any case Nintendo IPs on MS console it won't happen, it's not realistic scenario at all.

That is also not what I expect.. write..

I'm not talking about todays consols.. But IF Nintendo and MS behind the curten.. talks future.. It offcourse makes sense that.. Mostly MS will help Nintendo a litle today.. And IF we ever see real Nintendo games on something that MS are part of.. I expect Nintendo to be part of it too. (other companys like Amazon..  Valve.. Ea.. ubi.. and even sony could also.. A bit like the blu-ray disc association.. just where the goal is to compete against Android and Ios )



The unsecured people on this site is hilarious.

Well we cant know what will be in for instance 10 years, but currently or in near future (next Nintendo/MS console), hardly.

Lets see.. :) But as I see it.. next "Gen" is the perfect time for some like this.. and later would only make it much harder.

And don't forget..  I'm one of.. if not the biggest Nintendo fan on this side.. As I see it.. this is how we get the "true" Nintendo domination (Nintendo acces for more than 50% of worlds people.. and user numbers that can reach a billion.. with time :)



That's some nice PR talk, but it stays just that.



so basically Xbox Live is coming to nintendo someday LOL, all nintendo has to do is name there service something like "Nintendo Network" powered by Microsoft, without using the xbox live brand name.



A new Banjo game as a joint effort between Nintendo and MS would be pretty great lol.
