    Default Microsoft and Nintendo VS. Sony?

    Do you think that Microsoft and Nintendo could in the future work together [edit-some ppl take a joke waaay to seriously]

    With RARE still developing and publishing games for Nintendos DS what are the possibilities of an even more cohesive Union between M$ and the big N?

    Sure this MIGHT only be becuase Microsoft has no interest in the handheld market but could it lead to something more? If for instance the Revolution loses to much ground after a late release etc?

    Dont get me wrong this isnt another DEATH OF thread Im just curious as to what other gamers here at the DP boards think could happen or even will happen (hypothetically of course) between these two companies?

    I think that there is a great possibility of some sort of partnership/alliance between Nintendo and Microsoft if Sonys dominance continues into the next generation with PS3.

    A few examples of the possibilities:

    Since Nintendo is finally diving into the online market with the Revolution what if Microsoft lends it support in some way or another for the online aspects of the REV?

    Another: DS to Xbox360 connectivity? Hey why not? I mean RARE is making games for the DS and could easily program a game to work with the 360 for something as simple as downloadable extras etc.

    After 2 complete generations dominated by Sony I just have this feeling that SOMETHING HAS TO GIVE somewhere in the industry in this upcoming generation something has to change with the current 3 console manufacturers and I believe that something WILL something SIGNIFICANT something MAJOR the question is what?

    My answer is no, I don't think <Sony/Microsoft/Nintendo/Other> will join forces with <Sony/Microsoft/Nintendo/Other> in order to defeat the evil <Sony/Microsoft/Nintendo/Other> anytime soon.

    I think it could happen.

    Also, There was a rumor that Nintendo was producing the graphics chip for use in the Xbox 360. (Or was it the Ram chip?)

    I think Microsoft and Sony getting together to defeat Nintendo would be just as likely as what you said. Not likely.

    nintendo is the shit, but i really like sony. they have good studios with good games, its just that their hardware has been behind the last 2 gens. however, sony is not an evil empire. if anything, microsoft is the one making moves to put the other two out of business, and talking a lot of shit to be the big kid on the block. however, microsoft and nintendo will not be joining forces anytime soon, and i doubt it will ever happen.

    Heh.

    The problem is, apparently it's not ok to just play the games you like and let others do the same. For some reason, it's more importaint to some people that their company "wins" than it is to actually enjoy the games they put out. I will never understand this mentality for the life of me, but whatever gets people through the day.

    Do you think Atari and Coleco or Mattel will ever pair up to take on that new nintendo system that's been selling lately? I bet they could really kick nintendo's ass if they worked together.

    No they didn't, that was a completely fake article. As prideful as the Japanese are, the CEO of a company would likely never tell another company to "Suck my tiny yellow balls."

    As for the merger being used to dominate sony... meh. I doubt it would ever happen, and if it did it would be a complete work of frustration for East and West to meet the same ideals to be able to agree on one system globally.

    It was a fake article. if NOTHING ELSE AT ALL, it's the chinese who are referred to as being yellow, not japanese. So if the CEO was chinese, then maybe I'd give it some credit.

    That's like a mexican saying suck my big black balls. He's not black.

    Wow.

    Following that logic, someone in Nigeria must really be waiting to deposit a bunch of money in my bank account because I've seen that email a bunch of places.

    What e-mail? And why would someone in Nigeria deposit money to you bank account for seeing a e-mail? Do you know someone from Nigeria that want to give you money? Cool
    But let me try to explain it to you, dunno if you understand tho. Might be too complicated for your brain. If so, let me know or ask someone else for further assistance, thanks.
    I just find it strange that so many sites would write about it if it was completely fake. Even big ones like CNN. Even if the buying wasnt very serious I think the idea might have been brought up. This is what I think, I didnt say it was like it.
    Please prove me wrong, that the article was fake. I havnt read that atleast.
    Now that wasnt so hard to understand was it? Or maybe it was for you..? If so, let me know.

    Almost scared me there for a minute. Nintendo joining the legions of hell? I don't really know about that. I support Nintendo 100% ever since they started, but a decision like that would cause me to scratch my head, and the word "disown" may be said several times.

    But as unpredictable as the game world has gotten nowadays, I really wouldn't be surprised.....

    Dude, the article is real. I also got an email from Microsoft that says every time you forward it to someone then Microsoft will give you a ton of money. Ill forward it to you if you want to see it for yourself, it's in my inbox right now, dude. Dont try to tell me whats real and what isnt...my mom is the one that sent it to me and she doesnt even know enough about the internet to fake something like that.
    Now back to Nintendo. I would let Nintendo do me in my butt if they asked. Really, if I saw a Pokemon running around my house I'd catch it and make little Nintnedo lovin' PokeBabies, then I'd call them Nintenkemon. Then Id make babies with the little Nintenkemon...and more babies made out of the babies I made from the Nintenkemon babies. You dont want none of this , man. Ill love Nintendo so hard it'll make your head spin.
    Wow...thatís all too believable.
