What if Nintendo bought Sony back in the SNES days?

Like if they bought the company and it became a 2nd party AAA Nintendo developer?

Nintendo would still be on top of the world. No PlayStation brand to compete with.

Imagine how awesome it would have been! ^_^

If that had happened, I wonder if Sega would still be in the console race?

I don't think so. Sony had nothing to do with their many failed peripherals.

Anyone with a Wii U or PC, BUY RUNNER 2!

Then maybe Nintendo would've adopted CD-ROM technology and wouldn't have spent 10 years getting their asses kicked by Playstation and Playstation 2.

they have the PC version of Darksiders 2 running on WiiU in 1080 native at 60 fps and full graphics options on. Neither 360 or PS3 can come close

If Nintendo bought them, rather than having some sort of contract so they can only develop for Nintendo systems, they would be first party, not second.

If Nintendo had bought Sony, then maybe the trolls wouldn't attack this board.

Uh, wasn't Sony worth around 10-15x more than Nintendo in the early 90's? Wouldn't Sony be buying Nintendo?

A dev that isnt owned by the console maker, that develops exclusively for that console.
