Forums - Gaming Discussion - Do the console makers games count as triple A?

Thats a silly question, like asking if Sony can make a blockbuster movie because thay make TV's. What does selling consoles have to do.with the budget off a game?

The only relation I can see is that Sony (and I would say only them) are willing to make investment of AAA grade on games they don't expect very high sales and may lose money (as Shu Yoshida put only 4 in 10 profit and like only 2 really bring the big numbers) just to create a good and diverse environment to have also 3rd parties releasing on PS.

Of course they do. They spend a lot of money on their games. Since triple A simply stands for big budget game. Also why do you assume most people do not consider Nintendo games triple A games. I still have to meet the first person who thinks BoTW is not a Triple A game.

So to answer your question they all make triple A games, but not every game they produce is a Triple A game.

None of the Nintendo games are AAA.both in terms of quality and production value.some of PlayStation and Xbox games can be considered as AAA.

That didn't take long..

 

Zelda is more like a AA game.actually most of the Nintendo games are either A or AA quality.nintendo are seriously a generation behind when it's come to their game production budget and quality.which is great for Nintendo because they will profit more from their games.
