A partnership between Disney and Nintendo would be a win win for both companies for sure! Nintendo apps on Amazon are nice but can you imagine "Nintendo World" at one of Disney's theme parks? That would be really cool.

* So essentially the NX could be this? :

* Normal console at least as powerful as PS4

* Also includes ability to play ios phone games, which can get the iphone fans to buy in.

* Disney Partnership = Nintendo + Disney games or amiibos.

- Possible Mario + Star Wars = Possibility of Luke Skywalker or Obi-wan or Darth Vader in Super Smash Brothers NX.

* Disney will be the only company allowed, at first, to make video games or movies using Nintendo characters.

* Disney is partnered with Nintendo for a Disney theme park with a Nintendo theme, so they officially have a new working relationship involving a lot of money and IP use.

* I think if Nintendo wanted to allow it's IP's to be used, they wanted it to be with somebody they knew had the Talent, & could be trusted.

Disney would be that company.

* Imagine Disney/PiXar animators, + Nintendo IP's.

* Do you guys remember Aladdin for Sega Genesis ?

One of the reasons that game was so loved was the animations were done by Disney Animators, which made them stand out as the best on the system by far.

* THAT talent, those animations + Nintendo IP's WILL sell the NX.....just not sure how much.

You want those Wii sales back ? Partner with Disney and get that Star Wars money.

Even though what you said is a little over the top, I dont think you are far off from reality. The western World loves Disney and Disney is filthy stinking rich with tons of artists. This could change the current Skylanders deal and it become a group effort with Nintendo and Disney and Activision. This is a brilliant way for Nintendo to get their hands on the third partys money. A lot of what you said is interesting. We will have to see what happens.

OMG Disney is going to buy Nintendo.

mikel1015818d ago

Can't tell if sarcasm or just retarded

SmokingMonkey818d ago

No just being retarded, I don't actually believe this would happen. But then again, I would have never thought Disney would buy LucasArts...and well here we are.

deafdani817d ago

Disney bought Marvel and LucasArts. Do you really think Nintendo is outside of their grasp?

The biggest obstacle here would be japanese pride - Nintendo selling themselves to an American company -, not money.

GordonKnight817d ago

Microsoft wanted to purchase Nintendo when they first got into the gaming industry. Nintendo didn't sell then, but times have changed. IMO I would think Nintendo would wait until their company has a higher value to sell. That's only if they would sell. Either way my investment in Nintendo is going to bold way in future with all these big partnerships they're making.

Moonman818d ago

Nintendo is in a great place financial wise with Universal Theme Park partnership, DeNA and something like this would bring fortune.

Maybay818d ago

I like this idea.

It can mean big things for Nintendo. Maybe it's time to buy more stock (^o^).

Sly-Lupin817d ago

It would mean bigger things for Disney, from a gamer's perspective at least. Imagine Disney properties getting games with Nintendo-level quality? That'd be fantastic.

Even without the whole idea that we could get a Star Wars game that's does its own thing and is awesome.

A deal like this would definitely open up the possibility for a "Nintendo World". From what I remember, they were planning on opening up theme park attractions with Universal Parks.

EDIT: @Moonman beat me to the Universal news.
