They refused $25 billion offer from Microsoft (back in 90s). Lol. This wont be happening.


Wonder if MS is offering up again? Seems they are in buying mode.


I thought that story was debunked.

Not sure I'm just going off what he said and microsofts spending habits lately.

I really don't like the idea of Disney acquiring Nintendo. If anything, I'd much rather prefer a partnership between the two.

A partnership would be better, Nintendo needs to be itself sometimes.  Plus it's not like the 2 haven't been partners before:

Hiroshi Yamauchi, standing alongside Roy O. Disney, securing the infamous Disney/Nintendo playing card deal.



Phew. I was worried that the games didn't have nonsense characters already.



Could the thread title be changed to "Polygon Clickbait Bullshit"?

Cheers.

Thing is LucasArts and Marvel were going down the drain before being bought by Disney. Im not saying Nintendo is fairing amazingly well but they are still several years away from considering a buyout.

As for the notion.... Nintendo would get a huge boost in marketing and most likely movies and TV shows. But I feel the Nintendo brand would take a hit in fan base.

I didn't read the article, but I assume it's ultimately about bringing Nintendo games to PlayStation and Xbox.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Nintendo is not going to sell to Disney- the article is either clickbait or foolish

I think Nintendo would ask far more than Disney would be willing to pay.


They will never accept to be buying by anybody



PS4 - over 100 millions let's say 120m
Xbox One - 70m
Wii U - 25m

Vita - 15m if it will not get Final Fantasy Kingdoms Heart and Monster Hunter 20m otherwise
3DS - 80m

The flaw in this argument is that Nintendo needs "saving"

It doesn't

Financially Nintendo is in no danger from one failed console, or even a few failed consoles.

In fact even now they are turning a small profit (granted this is mostly due to the declining value of the yen, but still its not bleeding money)

What Nintendo needs is for its developers to stop making the games they want and start making the games the consumer wants, Nintendo doesn't like making old school style games, they want to make supergamecube games and that is why the system is selling so poorly.

The reason Wii sold so well for a few years was because Nintendo stopped making gamecube style games for a while, but then they squandered all that momentum with games like Skyward sword and Other M and Mario Galaxy.
