Atari Founder says Nintendo 'Irrelevent'.

Nolan Bushnell was the Atari founder, not the guy who led it to its downfall. He was only with the company until like 1982 which was still in the 2600 days. Stop being fanboys about a company that sees you as a dollar sign and realize that the guy who essentially created the first home console has a worthwhile opinion.

its kinda hard to take this guy seriously, atari as systems has never had the success of nintendo, if anything wii u has probably outsold most of the ataris systems on its worse day.nintendo might not be a powerhouse this generation that it has been before, but its not going anywhere

Considering as all companies bidding for your money will all see you as dollar signs, your comment is a bit irrelevant on that end but yes, he would have a worthwhile opinion considering he probably had to watch the company fall out of sight. If Nintendo doesn't straighten then they won't be able to bid for your money anymore...which is true.

I meant hardcore brand loyalty in general, not just Nintendo.

His company singe handily caused the great Video Game crash of the 1980's and NINTENDO single handily revived the industry.

F*** you Nolan Bushnell!

Bushnell left Atari in 1978. Blaming him for the "crash" is monumentally ignorant.
