Sony’s Shawn Layden says Switch is “a great success,” sees Nintendo and PlayStation “sitting side-by-side”
Sony global game development boss Shawn Layden had high praise for Switch while speaking about the system with TIME recently. He said that that new platform is “a great success for Nintendo” and noted how “it’s definitely what that fanbase has been waiting for.”
Layden doesn’t personally view Switch as a rival. Rather, he believes Nintendo and PlayStation compliment each other with families often purchasing hardware from both companies.
“When you look at our numbers, I think it shows that a lot of gamers are a two-console family. And quite often those two consoles are PlayStation and Nintendo sitting side-by-side.”
