After reading that, I really had to see what this was all about.

I remember reading about this a while ago, nice to see Nintendo actually cares, and did something for his family. *Looks* at Sony and Microsoft.

Nintendo just gave him a life time nintendo pass which was a nice thing but ruining the gaming industry was not.


They made the DS does that count?

I am confused how does Nintendo care? They didn't do anything at all!

These kinds of stories always make me roll my eyes. They have these massive statements like "someone was trapped in a basement being set ablaze, and one person had to go in and save him!" etc. and then the end result is so cheap and stupid.

The end result of this one is the kid using the DS light to unbuckle his mother or something. I mean come on are you serious. The article builds up this huge thing and then THAT'S the big reveal? So dumb.

Also the title is misleading. I thought Nintendo themselves gave someone some kind of lifetime pass. But it was just his mother who says Nintendo is okay now, or some BS.

your just mad cause you wouldnt be able to save em even with a flashlight
like common the kid if 5 years old, most kids that age would just cry until someone else rescues them

Nintendo didn't give him a was his mom.

I thought it was gonna say the kid used some amazing medical technique he learnt from trauma centre to save his mums life. Instead, he used the light from the screen to unbelt his mother. That's a good kid, but he would have been a great kid if he also used his trauma centre game to give that kangaroo CPR or something
