Nintendo's market cap right now is pretty close to $50 billion dollars, but to acquire a company generally you have to overpay, so you're talking $60-$75 billion ... don't think even Microsoft could stomach that. The largest purchase they've ever made was LinkedIn for $26 billion. Spending three times that amount for a *video game company* is a grossly ineffecient use of resources, it would take them forever to recoup that money.
