Should Microsoft buy Nintendo and Sony?

If by "business sense" you mean locking everything behind a paywall and spamming you with advertisements and microtransactions, then yes, they've got a great business sense.

It won't even happen and if it did. It would be the end of video games as we know it as Microsoft is all about ripping off customers. (Windows, Microsoft Word, ect.)

If Microsoft somehow got the Nintendo games like Pokemon. I'd be sold XD I would actually support Xbox more than PS systems lol

They won't ever also if Microsoft had Pokemon. It would be pay to get online and trade your Pokemon. Let alone they would ruin it like they did Halo. rofl However, you can keep dreaming! :)

They can't. Last I checked, Japanese companies can't be bought by foreign companies.

I wouldn't want it anyway since competition is good.

Nintendo would cease to exist before that happens.

Sony, no.

But if MS could aquiere Nintendo and keep all it's talent I would say go for it.

Nintendo first party games were the best thing on the Wii and seem to be the best thing on the Wii U(Super Mario 3D). Not to mention playing Smash Bros over XBL would be glorious.

Also with every Xbox One having a Kinect I expect Nintendo devs to want to explore the hands free side of motion gaming more.

Sony would be nice but Uncharted, God of War and such doesn't carry the weight of Nintendo first party games. And the Xbox 360 were given games in that genre so Xbox only owners didn't miss out on much. But the Xbox and Playstation has nothing to match Mario, Smash Bros(playstation All-star was mediocre), F-Zero, Pokemon, ect.

MS should just buy the country of Japan.
