It would be bad in some ways and hilarious at the same time. But it ain't gonna happen Microsoft is worth more than Nintendo they're a conglomerate.


This. More likely for the reverse to happen, but it would make for a very interesting situation.

MS doesn't really have anything to offer Nintendo.
MS has what? 2-3 worthy IPs?

Xbox 360 is just a 3rd party waypoint.


You do realize there is more to MS than just games right?


Yes.
Overkill in Ads and overpriced downloadable everything all with in an organization filled with the most hated community this generation has ever seen.

I'd finally have HD Zelda on the Xbox with a real controller. I'd be in heaven.

IMO on how I would structure Xbox live.
(It would be amazing!)

1. Lots of ads for silver members including video advertisements as a trade off online play is free.
2. Paying members get no adds.
* You can however accept ads in return that will lower the cost of subscription.

3. With a membership some games are free to play (like PSN+)

I have a ton of other ideas

With this scenario I see

5 more editions of Ocarina of Time

2 more Starfox 64s

a re-re-release of Pikmin 1 & 2 with Kinect controls

the online marketplace flooded with games you already bought 3 times over.... but STILL no Earthbound.

Oh..... and Gold is replaced with friendcodes.

They would probably go bankrupt due to the fact that they would basically have to sell off all of their assets and have to borrow insane amounts of money to even consider buying a small portion of MS.
