Truth or Tale: President Of Sony Asked Nintendo For One Mario Game To Help Sell The Vita

A report from Play4Real says Sony has been asking Nintendo to allow them to publish one Mario game on the Vita to help spur sales.According to a source within Nintendo who wishes to remain anonymous said that president of Sony Computer Entertainment, Andrew House, has been meeting with Nintendo employees in hopes to secure a Mario title for the PlayStation Vita. The Nintendo employee said that this has been going on for the past four months.

“I don’t know why he keeps coming here because we have clearly said no. But he keeps showing up unannounced with gifts and begs us to let them [Sony] have one Mario title for the Vita, said the source. I feel kind of bad because these gifts are really nice. Well, everything except the free Vita. There really are no compelling games for that thing. Lately, he’s been upping the offers Sony will make if we give them a Mario game,” continued the source.

“They even offered to port three PlayStation 4 games of our choice to the Wii U at no cost to us,” the source explained. He said that they don’t care which Mario game we give them. They’d even take New Super Mario Bros. 3 if they had to.”

Play4real spoke with Sony for a comment regarding this story and a spokesperson gave us this statement:

“Sony and Nintendo have a long history together. Despite being competitors in the video game industry, many top executives are long-time acquaintances with each other. Friends do things for one another and while there is no truth to these rumors, Sony believes that Nintendo is a good company who would do the right thing if asked.”

Nintendo of America president, Reggie Fils-Aime, also commented on the story saying, “I haven’t heard of these unscheduled visits from Sony, but I will allow them to publish Steel Diver for those ports.”

Gaming After Hours perspective: 
Even if there is some truth to this story, the likelihood of ever seeing a Mario game on anything other then a Nintendo platform is nonresistance given how close Nintendo holds their franchises to their chest. It be wise to take this story with a grain of salt. 

One comment on “Truth or Tale: President Of Sony Asked Nintendo For One Mario Game To Help Sell The Vita

  1. A further issue is that video gaming has become one of the all-time
    largest forms of fun for people of nearly every age. Kids have fun with video games, and adults do,
    too. The particular XBox 360 is one of the favorite gaming systems for folks who love to have
    hundreds of games available to them, and who like to play live with other individuals all over the world.
    Thank you for sharing your opinions.
