Bello! By name is Brian Badongy.

http://www.videogamer.com/news/iwata_accepts_blame_for_nintendo_3ds_takes_50_pay_cut.html

Nintendos Satoru Iwata has taken a 50% bay cut for the 3DS not explobing in sales.

Do you think that if Xbox 360 had failed, Bill Gates would have done the same?

Boo.

Oh no, then he will only be making ONE billion dollars a year instead of 2. That must suck.

No because he has nothing to do with the Xbox team and stepped down in 2008.

Bill Gates was never involved with the Xbox, and he retired in 2008 and is giving i believe 75% of his wealth to charity

Bill Gates has given away more money to charity than Iwata will ever see in a lifetime.

Um, not to ruin your fun TC but the Xbox did not fail.

Regardless of the poor Bill Gates joke, there is a lot to be said about this issue.

I'm sick of seeing companies run into the ground and being bailed out by the government, and then seeing the CEO of said company receive his multi-million dollar bonus. Contract or not, failure should NEVER be rewarded.
