I'll be honest... I kinda agree with Harada. This kind of console could combine the best parts of the Big Three.

Although a console like that would be nice, its nearly inconceivable because of how much those companies are in competition to each other.

I like his idea, and it sounds great and all, but like raytay286 said, I don't see these companies working together to collaborate on one super-awesome, top of the line console.

I think what you'd end up might be comparable to a gaming PC (obviously with a controller etc) with less knowledge required to use a regular computer with installing programs etc. Which would be a good thing in my eyes as it is always frustrating if a great game releases on a console you don't own.

MicroNinOny! It'd run a flavour of Windows 8 with a custom UI from Sony and some "revolutionary" controller from Nintendo with cutesy Mii-like user avatars. Achievements and Trophies would be changed to 'stickers' (influenced from Nintendo), and you'd have to pay to only play some of the games online.

tbh, I think Nintendo should bow out of the console scene (like SEGA) and stick to handheld gaming. I can't really see Microsoft of Sony out of the console picture, nor can I see them combining forces either.

It's incredibly unlikely it'll happen indeed, they are competitors after all. Still, the idea is good.

Lol why would nintendo back out? They continue to be the most innovative console company, and continui to bring gaming into the future. Ludicrous proposal.

Because they're consoles are almost on the level of Pimp My Ride, as in ridiculous?

I'm all for innovative but come the *bleep* on, they've always had stupid ideas for controllers, powerglove to name one.

Actually it was a good idea imo, just failed that's all...

Edit: I actually just looked it up it was not even made by nintendo.

Nintendo is still going strong and that speaks volumes about the way they do things. You don't make stupid ideas on a regular basis and do that well.

That being said its a good idea in theory but falls short in practice. Nintendo and Sony couldn't even get along for their disk based system back then what makes anyone think all three would just get along and everything would be just peachy?

Yes I know what Nintendo has done for gaming, doesn't mean the powerglove, Wiimote, N64, and currently their gamepad aren't stupid. Yeah they brought innovation but what kept me from buying the Wii was the controller, I loved the Gamecube controller. It's my favorite console to date.

I never said they were good ideas, especially Sony's ball on a stick.
