Sony doesn’t think kids will like the Nintendo 3DS

March 24, 2010

In an interview with IGN, John Koller, SCEA’s director of hardware and marketing, confirmed Sony won’t be trying to compete with Nintendo for the “young gamers who want 3D-enabled portable gaming systems” demographic, mainly because he doesn’t think that demographic exists.

“Our focus on 3D right now is on the console,” he told IGN. “”I think it remains to be seen where Nintendo goes with 3D on a portable… Having been in the portable space for quite awhile, I think it’s an interesting move but one I’d like to see where they go from a demographic standpoint. 8 and 9 year-olds playing 3D is a little bit of a stretch given where some of our research is right now.”

Honestly, it sounds like the man is hating. You’re telling me my little, 8-year-old cousin wouldn’t love playing Mario Kart with banana peels and red shells popping out at him on a Nintendo 3DS? With force feedback? Pffffffffffff.
