During his DICE 2019 keynote speech, SIE Worldwide Studios Chairman Shawn Layden discussed not only Sony’s place in the gaming market, but how both Nintendo and Microsoft are working to improve the industry in various ways.
In his Beyond Generations keynote, Layden said “The best-selling console of 2018 in the U.S. was… The Nintendo Switch. Nintendo took a massive risk when they brought this to the market. People thought Nintendo might one day be out of the hardware business. People would say things like ‘kids play games on mobile phones and tablets, dedicated portable gaming is dead and gone.’ But as I’ve said before: never underestimate Nintendo… All of us are better for their efforts.”
