Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada believes Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo could join forces to make one powerful console in order to create limitless innovation.
In a recent interview, Harada said he would love if the Big Three would focus on one console due to the changing face of gaming. The possibilities would be "endless" if Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo created one console, according to Harada.
"I think it would be interesting if Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo got together just to make one console. It makes me very happy to think about all the possibilities that could occur because of that."
Sony already began innovating when it removed region locking on the PlayStation 3, which Harada said put Sony ahead of the curve, and hopefully we see more things like that if the Big Three join forces.
Harada goes on to say that the industry can no longer dictate where players game through devices. The rise of mobile and browser games have opened up new platforms to people, and now the game industry needs to change as a result.
"For a long time, the game industry has been able to control the way people play games. There was a platform that people used solely for their gaming needs, and the industry had control of the trends and such that occurred. [But now] people are able to not be tied down by consoles, and it doesn't stop with phones; we have browser gaming and all these different platforms."
If one console is the future of gaming, then perhaps Harada is the most forward thinking member of the industry yet.
