Your reaction, Nintendo buys Valve.

Are you another Nintendo fan who somehow got the impression that companies are just up for sale all the time or what? Or that Nintendo even registers as a really huge company that can afford to buy things at will?

I am pretty sure Valve is worth more than Nintendo. Gabe Newell alone is worth over a billion dollars. I don't think Iwata is worth over a billion dollars.


That's funny cause last I checked nintendo was worth over 50billion in the beginning of the year... An valve was like 2b... Where they find that other 48b, summer sales?


Nintendo isn't actually worth that much, that's just how much their stock is worth if you bought all of it at the current beginning of fiscal year value.

If one person had 100% of their stock and tried to cash out all of it they wouldn't get anywhere close to 50 billion.

Valve is privately owned, so their perceived value is lower than it actually is. If someone wanted to buy Valve, they'd have to pony up a lot more than 2 billion, assuming you could convince Gabe Newell to sell it in the first place.

Even if GabeN considered the possibility of selling out, it'd be a hell of a lot more than a measly $3-4bil or whatever their networth is now. They practically print money.

On the other hand, Nintendo's posting hundreds of millions in operating losses a year. Even with 18bil in the bank, they can't afford to buy out anyone significant right now, let alone Valve. They kind of need to get their s*** together first.

Really? This is all you have to go on, Gabe likes SM64? This is why people hate Nintendo fans.

Gabe likes Super Mario 64. So Nintendo buys Valve.

Depends.


Would this means we would see a Zelda game for PC? Or that Steam would be console-only?


If its the former, YAY. If its the later, I would probably have a LOT less games to play...
