Sony worked for Nintendo

Nintendo and Sony were in a partnership. Nintendo broke contract, essentially striking first but it wasn't without reason. Simply put, through contract Sony would have commanded way too much power regarding Nintendo's resources and Yamauchi felt Nintendo could not give up this power if they were to function efficiently as an independent company. Nintendo forced the breach in contract in order to protect the integrity of Nintendo as a corporation.

Was it right for Nintendo to do so? Maybe morally it wasn't as they were quite far in development, but as far as business the decision was made in the best interest of the company. Sure enough, the now dominant Playstation brand was born from the strife but things could have been bad for Nintendo had things gone as planned. This is what they wanted to prevent.

3 console and a handheld later

they are big rivals!

I am on my school computer, uh oh, teacher!

Nintendo were stupid. If they had just teamed with sony and tried to make the power equal we could have an awesome system right now.

So then why is this thread's title "Sony worked for Nintendo"? It was just a partnership, was it not? Besides, if Sony was getting too much power then it would have been the other way around.

Agreed. Sony deserves even more power than Microsoft has. Speaking of Microsoft, everyone make sure to click that link in my sig and read for yourself why Microsoft is so bad.
