    Oh god, please don't let this happen! Nintendo will always have a soft spot in my heart. I grew up with Nintendo. Yes, some people say that XBox and PS2 have now taken over, but nothing beats the imagination of many of the games created for the Nintendo systems. To me, they're like the Apple of the games console business, and I hope they never die. :)

    "...and with the company being in Yamauchi's family for over a century..."

    Wait a sec, computers have only been around for about half a century (ENIAC, 1946). o_O

    Maybe Nintendo used to make board games?

    I highly doubt Nintendo would give in to Microscrap. I can see it now, "In other news, Nintendo's new console gets its first ever trojan virus after switching hands..."

    Nintendo says the company isn't going to be a part of Microsoft.

    Yesterday, Bill Gates made an offer to buy Nintendo out from Hiroshi Yamauchi, and Nintendo has issued a response. "Nintendo is not for sale, and there is no such talk at all," said Yasuhiro Minagawa, Nintendo's public relations headman.

    Well, that clears that up. I guess there won't be an "XCube" anytime soon.

    Well you never know...they always say this when there ARE talks too.... But I kinda hope not also. I really have a soft spot for the great Nintendo characters. Don't know how I feel about Super Mario Service Pack 2. To me Nintendo has always been better at developing characters in their game series than anyone....

    This is sad and i hope nintendo will continue on its own. If anyone is going to buy nintendo it should be apple :p (j/k)
