Nintendo’s financial woes – detailed several times over – could be a major hurdle for the entire industry. This is according to Sony UK MD Fergal Gara who states this despite acknowledging the 3DS as the best selling console of 2013.

Speaking to TrustedReviews, Gara said, “[The decline of Nintendo] could be detrimental to the market, unless people like us raise our game and help tap into the younger consumer group that they serve rather well.

“That is the challenge to us. We need to bring maybe more family-friendly, more casual experiences into the market. I think there’s a big market segment there that we should take the challenge to engage and I see lots of potential to do that.

“The DS family was the bestselling format last year, despite the stellar sales of the PS4 for the last four or five weeks, it was still the best selling console or console family.”

As 2014 begins, we’ll see if Nintendo can turn things around as Sony and even Microsoft surge ahead.
