    Saw this story in a few places:

    Personally, I'd love to see this. Nintendo makes great software, and I think that keeping them as a subsiduary, autonomous developer would be a great idea. It'll probably never happen though...

    My theory is that he was misheard or misquoted. I think what he really said is: "I want to buy a Nintendo." In other words, he wants a Game Cube for his kids. [​IMG]

    Actually, I'm glad the Nintendo refused Microsoft's offer. If Nintendo would have accepted Microsofts offer, this would mean less competition in the game industry.

    Nintendo doesn't not need to be under anybody as long as they got the gba...MS and Nintendo run on totally different planes of mind.
