Sony: Nintendo’s Decline Will Result in More Casual Focus for PlayStation

The current state of Nintendo is a major discussion topic among gamers and members of the industry, even the higher-ups at Sony. In fact, PlayStation UK exec Fergal Gara recently discussed the importance of the Big N, and how the company's potential downfall could really hurt the gaming market as a whole.

"[The decline of Nintendo] could be detrimental to the market, unless people like us raise our game and help tap into the younger consumer group that they serve rather well," Gara told Trusted Reviews.

He then went on to explain how this may impact the future outlook at Sony, adding, "That is the challenge to us. We need to bring maybe more family-friendly, more casual experiences into the market. I think there's a big market segment there that we should take the challenge to engage and I see lots of potential to do that."

Would you like to see the PlayStation platform become a more family-friendly place for gamers of all ages? Are they better off sticking with appealing to the core first and foremost? Is there a happy middle ground that can be achieved?
