If even Nintendo is making mobile titles, I cannot see either Sony or Microsoft staying out of the market. Whether it's for direct profits or brand advertisement, it's too big of a medium to ignore.
Yeah, and whats crazy is nintendo already has the formula for game design = profits figoured very well out.
They dont spend a ton on games (no voice acting, little to no storytelling, no motion cap, no photo realism, endless texture work ect).
and they sell like crazy anyways.
If even nintendo resorts to makeing a quick buck this way.... yeah Sony and Xbox will likely also attempt it.
It just makes me mad though, like just focus on your consoles.
To be fair, Nintendo isn't putting that much effort into the mobile market, just enough to get people to know their brands. The one IP that's really pushing mobile is Pokémon, and that's just because The Pokémon Co. became insatiable after seeing Pokémon Go's profits.
