Sony has been one of the primary competitors with Nintendo dating back to the 90’s, but both companies have shown a lot of respect for each other versus the bloodbath treatment SEGA and Nintendo gave each other in years prior. That respect still holds true to this day, with Shuhei Yoshida, the President of Sony’s Worldwide Studios, singing a little praise for Nintendo’s new console release next year.
The following comes from an interview conducted at PSX by Digital Spy:
DS: 2017 will see the launch of another new console, Nintendo’s Switch. What do you think of it, and where do you see it sitting in the console ecosystem?
SY: I think it’s a very unique system. It’s very interesting that they’ve designed the system to work well with more conventional games in terms of inputs and buttons. So I think it’s good for core gamers and their marketing message focused on that.
DS: Do you still see Nintendo as competition in terms of hardware sales, or do they now exist in a completely different market?
SY: I think they’re going to cover a new market for themselves.
Are you happy with what he said?
