Nintendo Shouldn't Overlook Sony?

Quote:
Originally Posted by Examiner
In a recent interview with Geoff Keighley of GameTrailers TV, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime was quick to dismiss Sony and Playstation 3. He and the rest of Nintendo are making a big mistake by overlooking Sony, however. Here are a few reasons why Nintendo should take Sony seriously.

PSP
Before Sony came along, Nintendo was all alone on top of the handheld gaming market. Their monopoly came to an end when Sony decided to release the PSP. So although Nintendo is making more money than ever on the handheld gaming market with Nintendo DS, Sony also got a big piece of that pie.

Playstation Network
Both the Playstation Network and Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection are free. However, the Playstation Network is light years ahead of Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection in terms of features and services. This is true for both home consoles and handheld gaming. Nintendo should therefore take some notes from Sony instead of brushing their competitor off so quickly.

First-Party Strength
For years, there wasn’t any developer better than Nintendo. That may be finally changing. Sony has the biggest and most diverse first-party development core in the gaming industry. While Sony has quite a ways to go in terms of sales, their games are quickly gaining steam with one critical hit after another and are surpassing the quality of Nintendo titles.

Third-Party Support
Although the Nintendo Wii is selling significantly more than the Playstation 3, most third-party gaming companies are still choosing to develop for the Playstation 3 over the Nintendo Wii. Thus, almost all of the big third-party titles end up on Sony’s system rather than Nintendo’s. Nintendo should pay more attention to how Sony is courting third-party companies despite being in last place.

Although Sony most likely won’t catch up to Nintendo this generation, they are certainly a real threat to overthrow Nintendo and become the industry leader during the next round of next-generation video game systems. Nintendo would be foolish not to keep an eye on Sony.
Thoughts?

I don't think Sony is ever going to be a compeditor for Nintendo.
EDIT: Also, I have a PSP and a DSi, and to me, the wireless capabilities of the DSi greatly surpass that of the PSP. All I wanted to do was verse someone on Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters, and there was so many things I had to do first.
DOUBLE EDIT: I never actually got it to work.

i have a PS3 for Ratchet & Clank and a Wii for Mario, they're both getting my money because of the exclusive games they produce, graphics and innovation really don't matter to me just games.
if Nintendo makes better games this year than they won't have to worry. but if Super Punch Out is all you've got, your screwed cause' the PS3 has another R&C on the way.
as far handhelds go, no worries the DSi rocks and i think the PSP2 might be the final nail in Sony's portable coffin. i'm already ready for the next Nintendo handheld in a couple of years!

While it's true that Nintendo's third-party strength isn't anywhere near Sony's, Sony still can't get their first-party games together. I don't see them catching up anytime soon. On the other hand, third-party on the Wii has largely been a success in terms of sales.

I still think Nintendo should have just made the DSi a whole new system. Like give it it's own games with better graphics and stuff but use the same type carts so it can be backwards compatible with DS games. Plus the bonus web browser, camera, big screen, sound, SD slot, music player, better processor, etc. Anyhoo, to stick to the topic, I don't think Sony is a huge enough problem to like sell out Nintendo or anything but in terms of gamers interest, I think Nintendo might start noticing a difference in sales if they don't come up with some great games soon.

By all means, overlook Sony. The PS3 has gone way downhill, and it wasn't even that high up the hill in the first place. I want them to go the way of SEGA.

Hmm, I don't know if Sony will compete with Nintendo, but Microsoft sure is. Maybe not so much in Japan, but in America, it's a lot closer.

In Australia, everyone either has a Wii, or wants a Wii.
The 'hardcore' gamers have a Wii and an XBOX 360.
Nobody has a PS3.

Lol

Aussies aren't showing the PS3 no love. Go figure. Ah well, the Wii is the most user-friendly in a sense. I'm more of a hardcore gamer, so I have a 360, want a PS3, and need my Wii back.
