Nintendo struggling in the gaming market might not be the best news for Sony and Microsoft.
Playstation UK’s Managing Director, Fergal Gara, recently spoke about how Nintendo’s performance in the market could affect the industry.
"[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 said.
Along with noting the importance of reaching young consumers, Gara also stated his faith in the potential of the casual game market.
“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”, Gara said.
In contrast, Gara pointed Nintendo’s continued strength in the market, the DS family.
“Despite the stellar sales of the PS4 for the last four or five weeks, [The Nintendo 3DS] was still the best selling console or console family," Gara said.
