If that was the actual case than sure Nintendo broke the code and I will say the same for them, however I believe their was more to it than them breaking the code, and unless we have actual proof of what happened it is just a guessing game and feels like it was both greed. Anyway let me say this again so you understand, that is NOT the topic we are talking about, this is about Square leaving Nintendo, what ever Sony's and Nintendo business was is another topic altogether. Also Sunset Overdrive was not a Sony IP nor was it even a game, if Square went off to make another IP for Sony than no one would have cared but the fact it was a well established IP that was made famous on Nintendo platforms and Square dropped everything and left is why Nintendo was pissed. Like I said, very different circumstances for two very different scenarios.
Yes, Nintendo wouldn't care, so much that for NES they forbade any company that developed to their system to develop to other system. And during SNES if a game launched on it them it couldn't launch anywhere else. Those evil SE and Sony backstabbing angel Nintendo.

Mr Puggsly: "Hehe, I said good profit. You said big profit. Frankly, not losing money is what I meant by good. Don't get hung up on semantics"
