We are talking about 1st party & 3rd party games, since when you switched it to the existence of 3rd party studios??? 

Third party studios making games for Nintendo. They’re third party developed games. These games are made by third party studios because Nintendo doesn’t have the workforce to do everything by themselves. The game library would be thin if not for them. And there would be long droughts in between releases.

But you’re trying to say Nintendo doesn’t need third party games to survive, but at the same time, you say third party games are fine if they’re Nintendo’s IPs.

Those games count as third party games. They’re not developed by Nintendo, which rely on such games to fill their catalogue and alleviate the droughts.

So Smash Ultimate, Yoshi's Crafted World, Link's Awakening remake, Fire Emblem, Metroid Dread, WarioWare, Astral Chain, Mario Golf and Tennis and all Pokémon games are all third party games?

By your logic; Super Smash, Zelda Link's Awakening remake, Fire Emblem, Metroid Dread, Astral Chain, all Pokémon games are 3rd party games.

I guess if a new Uncharted, Killzone or Horizon get made by 3rd party studio, then they are 3rd party games. Tell that to Sony fans and let see how many people will agree with you.

Yeah. You correct, all 3° party. Thread here is Nintendo owned studios vs playstation owned studios. Imho,  Partners should not be included, no Bloodborne and the likes for Sony and no Bayonet, pokemon etc. for Nintendo

Well yeah, this thread is about the internal studios. But these games are still first party.

I explained to you the difference between a first party IP and a third party developed game.

Ratchet & Clank were third party games from an IP owned by Sony prior to their acquisition of Insomniac.

And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. I don’t know why you keep crying over all this.

If the platform holder publishes a game and plays a production role, then its first party. Death Stranding is a first party PlayStation game since its a PlayStation Studios branded production despite Sony not owning Kojima productions.

This thread is about PlayStation Studios vs. Nintendo EPD as production houses, not necessarily the studios that they own. A game that either of them produced doesn't have to come from an SIE or NCL subsidiary.

Any game that's produced and owned by the platform holder is first party, whether the studio that made it is first party or not.

People have been talking about the technical superiority of Sony but i think it's skin deep. Nintendo games have a lot of great technical quality under the hood. Like the physics if yheir games abd the accuracy of movement. Sony is really good but Nintendo devs are insane.



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

Another one not getting it.  😂

You mentioned that those are game developed by a third party studio. Correct, but that doesn't make them third party games. Third party games are those published by companies who aren't the platform holder. First party means both production and publishing.
