Former PlayStation head joins Nintendo in third-party role

Gio Corsi, former PlayStation head, joins Nintendo in a similar role, impacting game development for Nintendo platforms.

If you're a gaming enthusiast, you might be interested to know that Gio Corsi, formerly the head of third-party relations at PlayStation, has now moved to in a similar role, gearing up for the upcoming hardware release.

Corsi's new role at Nintendo

As reported by Wccftech, Corsi took to X / Twitter to announce his new position within Nintendo of America's “AAA 3rd Party Portfolio [management] crew.” His primary responsibility will involve assisting development teams in bringing their games to Nintendo platforms. This move aligns well with the anticipated launch of the Nintendo Switch 2 in 2025, making his hiring particularly timely.

Corsi's Impact and Nintendo's Future

While you may not be familiar with Corsi, his contributions to PlayStation, especially with the PlayStation Vita, are noteworthy. He played a significant role in bringing Japanese-exclusive Vita titles to Western audiences. Fans of titles like A Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name and Like A Dragon: Infinite Wealth may owe their enjoyment to Corsi's efforts, as he actively worked to boost the series' popularity in the West.

Nintendo's decision to bring Corsi on board is likely to be a strategic move. With rumours suggesting that the Nintendo Switch 2 will be a more powerful version of its predecessor, there's potential for more third-party publishers to consider developing Nintendo's platforms. If the Switch's current limitations regarding power are addressed, this could attract a broader range of games. Corsi's expertise may also lead to an increase in the availability of Japanese titles in Western markets.

While is certain at this stage, Corsi's hiring indicates Nintendo's intent to appeal to AAA-focused developers such as Ubisoft, Square Enix, and Capcom.
