If Nintendo fired Iwata and hired you in his place, what would you do?

I'll Start:

Day one in office, complete pull the Wii U from the market and halt any and all Wii U related activities. I would put together a world wide press conference and publicly apologize for even producing the Wii U and beg gamers/developers for forgiveness.

The day after that, I would immediately put that billion+ dollar warchest to use by producing the Nintendo Revolution™ that would be a super powerful 1080p/4k console (making it future proof for the next 8 years) that I would make cheap ($399 maybe) and sell for a loss in an all in attempt to get gamers and developers back on board.

Yes, for the first couple of years (at least) I'd lose the company a **** ton of money, but I would be playing the long game, not the short game that Nintendo has been playing.

Hire Iwata back as my personal assistant and ask him how the hell I'm supposed to do this job.

It's a good thing that you DON'T run Nintendo. Otherwise, the gaming market would be suffocated with mediocre FPS's left and right!

I would sell off the company and make some bank while I still could. If I actually tried to run things, we'd tank.

I'd shoot to get more indie developers as second party developers by giving them much better rates for eShop sales

Outside of that, I'd pretty much be doing the same thing.

I would get autograph from Miyamoto, then i would play some unreleased Nintendo games after that i would buy Sega and then i would hire Iwata back and retire.
