IMO the worst thing Nintendo ever did was backstab Sony when they were working on the Playstation together. It forced gamers to buy 2 consoles or miss out on every gen following the fiasco. If the deal would have worked out you would only have to spent half as much on consoles. Also MS would never have picked up any steam and then policies like "pay again for Internet you already paid for" would not have become industry standards.

Duh the virtual boy. Besides even if Sony and Nintendo had merged it's not like some other company wouldn't have still come along and tried to get a piece of the gaming pie. You still would likely not be able to play everything on one system which would have negated the need for multiple consoles. That's just the way it works. You want all the games you're just gonna have to swallow your pride and get the system it's on. We will probably never see a system that plays everything. That's competition and it's always around us.

Wii and Wii U. Atleast they were smart enough to abandon Virtual Boy.

Near 100 million units sold is considered "worst thing"?

Uh.... Sony 'backstabbed' Nintendo when they tried to take the rights all the money of every SNES game sale without doing any of the work while Nintendo would have gotten nothing.



OT; Virtual Boy.
