Neil Young, the founder of mobile gaming company ngmoco, has told online gaming publication IndustryGamers that Sony is ‘in trouble’ in the hardware space whilst Microsoft and Nintendo are in a formidable position.
“In the hardware world, I think Sony’s massively out of position. I think they’re in trouble. I think Microsoft’s in much better shape.”
“They understand cloud computing; the Xbox Live service is a world-class service, and they’ve got a foothold in mobile, albeit a tenuous one. I think they’re in better shape.”
“I think Nintendo always has the benefit of its franchises, but I don’t think it ends up being a really rich ecosystem for third parties.”
