They would. Whether it would succeed is a different matter. Unless they make an ip that easily mends itself to such a strategy, they are going to buy alot of ips or partner with other companies for this to work now.

They would have to market them differently. Amiibo, Skylanders, and Infinity are family friendly. Sony and Microsoft don't have dozens of recognizable, first party E rated stuff. I'm some young fans will buy that but you also gotta make adults want them too, and a lot of people aren't interested in collecting little figures.

It is doubtful that they will.

Doesn't seem like they would sell very well on those consoles. Nintendos reliance as children as a large sector of teir market, ensures that Amiibo's should perform pretty well, if only initially.

As for the "copying", we know Nintendo never does that.

Never.


You could also go for the much easier and more topical "Amiibo's are essentially Skylanders and Infinity Figures" Approach as well for this.

All other nonsense in this thread aside, why is it shameless copying when Sony or MS do it, but not when Nintendo does it?

The toy accessory business is only successful because it's targeted at children. Neither Sony or Microsoft have a library suitable for this.


Call of Duty is probably 70% children so........
