In an interview with Digital Spy, PlayStation boss Shuhei Yoshida has given his thoughts on the upcoming Nintendo Switch. The Wii U's successor is supposedly launching in March next year, but Yoshida doesn't seem to be too worried about it being potential competition for the seemingly unstoppable PlayStation 4.

"I think it's a very unique system," he begins. "It's very interesting that they've designed the system to work well with more conventional games in terms of inputs and buttons. So I think it's good for core gamers and their marketing message focused on that."

When asked whether he thinks that the Switch will be competing against Sony's current-gen system, Yoshida states, "I think they're going to cover a new market for themselves." Given the device's hybrid design, it's clear that the Big N is trying to carve out some space for a new kind of product, so on that basis, Shu's comments certainly seem to form a fair assumption.

What kind of impact do you think the Switch will have? Do you see it competing with the PS4, or is Nintendo going its own way? Embrace the console wars in the comments section below.
