Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo Finally Join Forces, but it’s Not to Create the Console of Our Dreams

In Japan Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo have finally joined forces, but unfortunately the initiative isn’t aimed to create a dream console that would unify the world of gaming, but to teach parental controls to the Japanese.

The three hardware manufacturers came together to create a joint flyer that explains the use of parental controls and intends to raise the awareness on game ratings between customers, to be distributed in Japanese stores.

I wish I could write that this is the sign of them working together for something bigger in the future, but I’m afraid it isn’t. A man can always dream, though.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
