Nintendo and Sony 2013-10-16 20:52:09
Let me take you back for a bit. My very first video game console was a Super Nintendo and my first video game was Super Mario World. For a long time I saw that as my favorite video game of all time. I loved it! I also loved playing Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Chrono Trigger, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, and Mortal Kombat just to name a few. When I turned 6-Years Old, I got a Nintendo 64 for Christmas and Super Mario 64. In 1998 I got Mario Party, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and Yoshi's Story, again just to name a few. I loved the Nintendo and I completely shunned the SEGA Genesis.
Then my parents got a Sony PlayStation. This confused me, I went from a life of cartridges... to discs? It was mind blowing. Not only that, games like Resident Evil 2, Parasite Eve, Crash Bandicoot, and Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen were all introduced to me. Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen is now my favorite video game of all time! A lot of my memories are wrapped up into these consoles and the games that I mentioned to you. So I have been having these weird thoughts lately.
I have a feeling that the PC market will completely dominate the console market. I could be wrong on this. Remember this is coming from the guy who thought Ocarina of Time was gonna flop. However if dire straits do come... what if Nintendo and Sony... merged.
They thought about it before, because the Super Nintendo was going to have a disk drive and play CD games. Sony were helping them with it. Through a complicated story, Sony took their information and made the Sony PlayStation. Just imagine if they were to merge though. It doesn't seem like a plausibility and you're absolutely right... just imagine what would happen if they were to merge.
This isn't really going anywhere, I mainly just wanted to present that hypothetical to you.
1. What do you think would happen if Nintendo and Sony merged their companies together?
2. What games would you like to see come from this merger?
3. How powerful do you think they would be in the video game industry?
4. What name would you call them?
5. Did you see what I did there?
