Nintendo should give back to the world

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo should give back to the world

With all the money Nintendo is making they should give back to the world it would be good publicity and a good deed.

For every Wii purchased $10 would be donated to X charity; for every virtual or Wiiware game purchased $2 donated to X charity.

It's easy to be a big talker when it isn't your money.



Easier said than done..

All companys should do that..Then the world would be saved.."Hopes and dreams"



.. They do that. a couple of months ago they hosted a Wii fit event in central Park for the American Heart Association, they made Wii modules for hospitals, etc.

(This one ^ is more of a discount than charity)

Just some of their charity work.

 

They also support local community sports around the world and provide developer seminars to kids who want to make games.

 

 

BTW, no one should feel obligated to give because someone else tells them to.



I would cite regulation, but I know you will simply ignore it.

You're bound to be a successful politician.

Spend someone else's money :)



Yes, I bet their investors would just love that.



So Nintendo should give away $280+ million cause you told them to.

Also with some VC games costing $5, giving $2 (40%) of the money made is not good business.



So why did they call it the 360?because when you see it, you'll turn 360 degrees and walk away- some guy on Gamespot
