Nintendo: Liars and Thieves?

They lied about the cost of the U to boost sales;

And they also stole a former Sony employee's tech to make the 3DS;

So is this all wrong or are Nintendo's business practices getting disgustingly shady?

Also; good news, I'm getting a 3DS next week. Red!

Wasn't there an urban legend at one time where Nintendo had ties to the Yakuza? Might not be too far from the truth. ~,O *whips out paper fan*

1. That's only an estimate on parts, not every other costs that goes into a console.

2. Sharp is the ones that develop the screens for the 3DS. Nintendo didn't create the screens and we have no idea what patent Sharp is even using.

I do enjoy records, but that's irrelevant. I was just citing some sources so people don't call me a troll.

Yeah because that tactic totally works.

Consumers totally care about how much it costs to make a console

"The Wii U is a steal honey! Let's buy 5 of them!"

That's totally why the Wii U is selling by the boatload, right?!

Provoking other users to respond inappropriately = Troll
Even the most positive remark can provoke inappropriate responses. Thus, we ALL troll.

If you were getting a deal on the hardware you could literally scrap it and make money.

Hence one of the many reasons why your initial point is illogical.

No, you see if you can MAKE MONEY from buying a U everyone would. Nintendo was basically implying this.
