Nintendo believes that its games are best experienced on its own platforms and refuses to port them to smartphones, tablets or other formats. Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida, however, says the same does not apply necessarily with his own company.

When asked if bringing Sony IP to Facebook or mobile platforms is a possibility, Yoshida responded, “That’s a really good question, and that I believe is totally possible. We’ve been discussing [that possibility] and if you noticed, we released an inFamous themed Facebook game at the launch of inFamous 2. So we are experimenting, and I don’t necessarily believe we’re competing against cell phones or social networks – because everybody uses Facebook and lots more people have cell phones and smartphones already. With people’s lifestyles, they’re always connected and engaged socially, so why not put our IP on there… or give some small experience [related to our IP] like you said ”

“So we like the idea and will continue to experiment to see how best we can use this new medium to connect to our new IPs,” he concluded.
