Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Saudi Arabia buys 5% of Nintendo

This is just the start. The first steps in the Saudi Prince's soon to come monopoly on videogames.
5% is not much, but bigger things are coming. I'd assume Sega is next.

I own a small portion of Nintendo as well...no where near 5% but yeah it' doesn't give Saudi Arabia any power over Nintendo. I suppose they could try to appoint someone to the board, not sure if it's as easy for activist investors to push around companies in Japan as it is in the USA.



People are so dramatic

They can buy as much shares as they want, Nintendo is public traded. If you don't like how open market works, don't support free traded companies, that's all



How is Captain Explosion gonna feel about this?

Saudi Arabia needs go invest in other things and not gaming. I don't how much I lose my brain if Saudi Arabia or Tencent bought majority shares of SEGA but hoping they get none on SEGA 0%. God please let Microsoft buy few stakes of Sega. You really like making feel bad about the Saudi targeting SEGA :(



Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.

Back in february he acquired 5% of Capcom.
Last month he became the owner of SNK.
He just acquired 5% of Nintendo.
I'd say by October he is probably gonna own 100% of Sega.

The sky is the limit.

So if i'm not a of fan of every stock purchase that ever happens I shouldn't be buying any products from a publicly traded company? That's an insane mentality.
