If SCE gave up on consoles and sold all their IPs to Nintendo does it make a sound?

Would Mario and Zelda games then be the best selling games on PS3/PS4?
Yes. But thus far they seem to be able to stick to making consoles, even though they are out of date by comparison. They make solid handheld systems though, so it's unlikely they'll go out of business anytime soon.
