I hope MS buys out Nintendo

Say what you will about MS, but they know what gamers want in online gaming. If MS bought out Nintendo, there would be none of this drip-feeding us with obscure black and white Game Boy games one per week. They would come out guns-blazing with the games gamers want. If MS owned Nintendo, there would actually be a "deal of the week" on the eShop every week, instead of just "pick of the week" every week.

Don't get me wrong. Nintendo is great at making games. Their first-party lineup blows away MS' easily. The problem is they just don't know how to run their business, particularly the online portion of it. Flame if you will, but if MS bought out Nintendo, or even just the online portion of Nintendo, I think we as Nintendo customers would be much, much happier and you know it.

Whoever runs steam should take over for Nintendo's online system.

In fact, they should take over everyones online system

Then anything free Nintendo offers would also be gone.

Nintendo may be crazy like Hudson, but I like their "crazy" attitude to Microsofts "treat everyone like crap" Capcomish attitude. (I would say they're just like Capcom but they're successful. :F)

I hope Inafune buys Capcom.

One can dream, eh? :b

Didn't Bill Gates, at one point, admit he would swoop up on Nintendo in a heartbeat if they became open to sell?
#8SoaringDivePosted 7/24/2011 10:51:06 AM
Bill Gates is retired, IIRC.


Also, to the topic: No. They over charge for online play (and run ads even though you're paying) I don't want ads on my Wii U.

Microsoft does need to buy out Nintendo, then we could have the Master Chief in Smash Bros.

It would suck ass if MS bought out Nintendo. The future of videogames would be ruined forever.
