Reasons Why Nintendo Is Better Than Microsoft & Sony

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Their New Consoles Actually Seem New

I know it's not a big deal, I'm always baffled as to why people don't find a new console special enough even though there's a ton of new games. But still, Microsoft taking the Xbox, making it bigger and less stupid looking, and adding a random number to it, as well as Sony never so much as making a new controller, it just really seems like every few years their presidents say "Oh, let's barely do anything, our fans will do anything.

Nintendo is also so much better with making lovable characters and stories in there games unlike Sony and Microsoft with every game being a first person shooter And with Call of Duty and Killzone what's the difference beetween them both?

The 3ds is more convenient than PS Vita due to 3D graphics and it has 3D camera to show better photos. It also has motion sensors that is great. Also, it uses a stylus than your fingers. I think it's better with stylus because using your fingers will get sore. So, 3ds and Nintendo I would vote for.

The great thing about nintendo is that their not just upgrading their consoles ( like xbox or ps). But nintendo actually changes things. like, once you have a ps4 there is no point in having a ps3 because it's just worse. while with nintendo u can own a wii u and a switch because they are very different.

22 Fewer Hardware Issues

Ps3 dies for no reason and red ring of death Nintendo has none of these issues at all

Problems are starting to happen on the Switch with the left joy con but Nintendo handles it well and actually replaces the left joy con for free. - Kid_ethinederland

When you play for a long time, the Xbox 360 will be overheated and it will surely cause damage.

No batteries is not a hardware problem...

I'm looking at you, Xbox 360.

23 The Music

Nintendo has the best music in the biz. In games like The Legend of Zelda, being stuck is a lot more tolerable with a beautiful symphony that matches the mood of situation.

Great point! Have you heard the music from Star Fox 64? Sounds awesome!

The music from the Super Mario Galaxy series is one of the most beautiful soundtracks to ever be in a video game.

Their music is very calm and relaxing

The world's best gamer is with Nintendo.

Copy cat (number 4)

The best reason

25 WiiU

The Wii U is awesome! I don't get why people hate it.

Wii u is awesome

It wasn't hated. It was just a poor execution and critical confusion.

One reason I think the Wii u is the best gaming console, Splatoon, I mean there is no game like it. I never wanted to play a shooter game because they were to violent, but then Splatoon came out and I was like, what is that? So I got it for my birthday and it was the best game ever, with a costumable character with great gear, colourful and NON VIOLENT. Do I need to say more

26 Nintendo almost never jumps in on a bandwagon.

Nintendo doesn't do things that other companies are doing just because their idea sold well. Nintendo innovates and tries to make their own successful ideas.

Nintendo tries to make each of their series original. Sony and Microsoft just do what they know people will eat up. Nintendo has made platformers, racing, RPGs, sports, shooters and puzzle games, just to name a few.

Jumped on a bandwagon: Miiverse to Facebook...kind of
Pulled the bandwagon: Motion Controls. Return of old classics (Virtual Console). And maybe soon the idea of the 3D Graphics (3DS) and the hybrid console (Nintendo Switch) - SoaPuffball

27 They Actually Make 1st-Party Games

Microsoft, we all know you've got a huge computer company keepin' you busy, but if you could make just one game on your own, not have a company you own do it, that would be nice.

At least Sony makes first party games.

People troll Nintendo for not having consoles built around third party, and while that does show with the Wii U, the Wii was a first party cosnoel and, sales-wise, it STILL kicked the 360's and ps3's asses! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Mocrosoft has rear were bango kasuy and perfict dark why why no use that

28 Their Gimmicks are Actually Pretty Cool

Nintendo wii actually has cool channels and n64 has all those paks like rumble pak when all sony & Microsoft does copy Nintendo and copy each other like Kinect & playstation move and lets be honest, Nintendo makes way cooler gaming experiences when sony & microsoft just makes those lame controllers.

Yeah! Nintendo invented selfies thanks to their Game Boy Camera & Game Boy Printer. Nice job, Nintendo. What else? Game Boy Calculator?

Really 1% but I everything

One word: SWITCH.

29 Nintendo Makes, Sony Takes

While Nintendo makes innovation, Sony takes their ideas copying them, and trying to make them better than Nintendo.

Nintendo create the best experience and they always have new ways to play.

Microsoft also always copies Nintendo, not just Sony.

Sony is a Nintendo wannabe.

Sony makes Jak and Daxter, LBP, And GT

30 They're An Actual Video Game Company

This doesn't really make a difference either, but if there was no longer any consoles being made by real game companies, I'd feel like I'm in 1983.

This one is true. I here people complain how they hardly see 3rd party games on this. That's because they are a game company. Sega is a game company. That's why even Sonic Boom is popular because Nintendo and Sega know what there doing. PlayStations cool but it's not as fun as Nintendo. Which games aren't really fun unless Nintendo has it too. The only game I like from PS4 is Arkham Knights. Not much of anything else. Sega may have crashed but they still know what they are doing just like Nintendo. The other ones just aren't fun at all half the time

Nintendo has been around since 1889 that's ALMOST 130 YEARS - Kid_ethinederland

Nintendo s the best and like he said they r a company microsoft and sny are olny lik "hey should we do a thing so we willtry" "hahahha trying hahahhaha good joke"

32 Pokémon X and Y Are Better Than Anything Sony and Microsoft Have Ever Made

Better plot, better gameplay. And they call me weird for liking it when they just want to play their shooter clones all day.

Nintendo don't make games where you basically watch a movie

A great boost to console and software sales. Excellent game too. Also, I get kind of annoyed when the rivalry of nintendo sony and Microsoft comed up. The real enemies are smartphones and tablets. Though they can't produce games like x and Y...

But Sony made Guitar Hero. - LemonComputer

33 Nintendo Makes Best Software to Sell More Hardware

Nintendo says: "Software sells Hardware" and they have the reason. Istead of Sony and Microsoft that they only focus on graphics, Nintendo makes the best and innovating Software to sell more Hardware.

34 Mario Kart 7

I love Nintendo and Mario Kart but Mario Kart Wii and 8 were funner than Mario Kart 7. Not saying it's bad, but I Mario Kart DS for a handheld would be my choosing.

ThiS game was ind of boring :/

35 Mario Mario Mario is the main character in the Mario Bros. Franchise, who was created by the creative director and video game designer at Nintendo of Japan, Shigeru Miyamoto. Mario has appeared in almost every Mario Game, including spinoff series, as a playable character, with few exceptions including New Super ...read more.

While the Mario series continues to innovate gaming and change the genres of their games, Call of Duty is the SAME THING every time. Adding 5 new guns doesn't innovate a thing.

Mario saved the gaming industry!

I like Zelda better.

Mario is the Kim Jong-Un of video games. - thearkis

36 Free Online Play

Nintendo is actually having people pay for internet starting in 2018. BUT you'll only have to pay about $20, UNLIKE Sony and Microsoft which have you pay $60 a year. SONY AND MICROSOFT CAN "SUCK IT"!

Why does paying for going online on games exist? - Jake09

Xbox charge for online play while you can use Nintendo wifi for maeio kart or something for free whenever you want

Sadly in 2018 you are going to need to pay for it 😢

I love smash bros

They made great SSB and Kirby games. The third party games for Nintendo consoles are still amazing.

Kirby and Smash Bros are better than just shooting and killing people all day. XBOX and PS are pointless - XpizzamanXx

38 Microsoft and Sony Are Overrated

I have played a majority of the game genres included in PlayStation and Xbox, so this is from experience. Their games, innovations, ideas, and purposes can be seen as solely based on competition. Some people will deny that Nintendo is good because they refuse to try anything new. The irrelevant labels that people implicate on Nintendo are opaque in their sense, like someone saying another person is stupid without even knowing who they are. Many of these games are truly overrated, such as the mundane production of FPS, racing, and sports games. No doubt Xbox and PlayStation both have their exclusively appealing games, but they all stick to their subject, and never change. For example, Call of Duty has over ten games in its franchise, and one can see that they blatantly attempt to improve their games every year through a bland series of poorly thought ambition. Some of their games are fun to play for a while, but they quickly get shunned out by their feeble innovations. Xbox and ...more

The ps1 and ps2 had barely any must have games apart from spyro, and the n64 has Zelda, Mario 007, conkers, and donkey kong - Harri666

What is so special in Xbox and PlayStation? All of the games are violent. All of their genres are FPS, racing and sports. SONY AND Microsoft are so stupid. I have played Xbox and PS consoles over a 100 times. When I knew about Nintendo, I tested many consoles and their games and no games of Microsoft and sony could even beat on game of Nintendo, neither in story nor in gameplay. Nintendo is the best and it is the real winner of the three.

I think that Little big planet, halo and other series that I like (Wwe) should join netendo becuse a lot more people would realize what the other systems are: violent gaming consoles that cost a lot more money than 3 ds.

39 Gameplay > Graphics

Nintendo actually cares about gameplay, iconic atmosphere, variety, and innovation. Microsoft and Sony only care about overhyping graphics and doing anything they can to get more and more money. Examples: Nintendo introduced motion control with the Wii, has a large variety of games (from the social simulation of Animal Crossing to the action and puzzles of The Legend of Zelda), and probably has the most iconic characters in gaming (Mario, Kirby, Link, etc.).

Their only objective. I actually don't know why this is low. - Koro

40 Nintendo Doesn't Cause Video Game Obsession

I know, right? Shigeru Miyamoto said "Video games are bad for you? That's what they said about rock-and-roll." When does a video game company ever tell you "Don't stop playing our games." & you become obsessed with video games? Nobody! So, why are some people obsessed with video games? Because they choose to be that way. I like video games, and I don't want to be obsessed with them.

They make games fun and interesting, but not obsessive.

Because the games are boring on Nintendo"Well Maybe for you. Have fun listening to squeakers squeak in the mike.

Because the games are boring on Nintendo.
