Sony hoping Nintendo does well with the 3DS
A few months ago, Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida mentioned working together with Nintendo to help promote 3D. It’s true that the two companies are offering different experiences, but but at the end of the day, it’s necessary to get the word out about the technology. Peter Dille, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment America, expressed sentiments similar to Yoshida’s in an interview with Siliconera. Dillie is hoping that Nintendo does well with the 3DS so that consumers become interested in 3D in general.
“Our perspective is they are doing something different and that’s what Nintendo does. They’ve got their own view, Sony has their own view. Our hope is they do it well because we’re big advocates of 3D. We need consumers to have good 3D experiences. I actually haven’t seen much of their technology. I know people are excited about it. I’ve heard a little bit that if you move your head a certain way you might lose the image. I just hope they do a great job, building a great 3D platform so people are interested in other 3D platforms. Because, collectively, we need to make sure a consumer has a good experience with 3D however they’re experiencing it so they have an interest in more 3D.”
