Because Nintendo is a great company, and Apple would make money off them. But, in all honesty, I think Apple would ruin Nintendo. So no to that.
i would be done with nintendo if that ever happened as much as i like most of nintendos games i wouldn't care about paying 599 for their next system makes me wonder what they would have to offer for nintendo to even consider it they passed on 25 billion from micosoft and that was in the GC days
I kinda agree.. If they did then we would be buying a new console/system every 6 months or every year.. So no... Maybe just to design it for nintendo... But no on buying them.. My 2cents..
Nintendo doesn't sell its soul to evil , otherwise kids would cry .
I agree with you but if this happened i would never buy a Nintendo console again as they would mess nintendo up just like they have with iphone and ipad imo.
Why Sony should buy Nintendo Why Microsoft should buy Nintendo Why Apple should buy Nintendo We've heard this type of speculation before...
Before the question was Why Apple should buy Sony, now its Nintendo. lol!
Why aren't there any articles titled: "Why Steve Jobs should buy less turtleneck sweaters"?
no just no. apple will ruin real gaming, and in turn ruin gaming for all consoles which will follow APPLES trend. >.>
Why does everyone blindly say will ruin "real" gaming. Did they ruin the music industry with there MP3?? Did they ruin the PC when new Macs came out?? Did they ruin the phone industry with the iPhone?? In all these cases they push innovation and force the competition to compete and become better. They would force Sony and Microsoft to evolve and come to the table better!
it's popular to hate apple around here, as their clearly the devil.
Did they ruin the music industry with there MP3?? YES. MP3 quality sucks, there is a huge loss of quality when transferring music down to mp3 files. The other two are good things to stand by, although the iPhone did drive change the phone industry for better or for worse since they made a bunch of people join AT&T again for better or worse. I have no problem with Apple, and seeing how Nintendo is more than likely going to be hitting home the casual audience again, it seems like App-tendo would be a good collaboration.
Apple didn't invent mp3s. However they did ruin my bank account with all of their fucking iPods. Especially the ones it seems were almost purposely designed to break down (ahem: iPod Classic). Apple buying Nintendo would be the death of core gaming on any Nintendo system. Also, if you think a 7 year life cycle is too short, try Apple's cycle of releasing a new console every year, or every six months if you want a different coloured one.
One reason why they shouldn't...They don't need Nintendo it would be a waste of money.
Lol, no. Apple is not even in the same category. And did i mention Apple sucks?
Nope. I would rather Apple enter on its own and compete that way. Apple would shake up and change the console gaming scene for the good (if you ask me) All Appple really has to do is get some good apps and games for Apple TV and with iPlay they would enter the game at the cheapest affordable price and everyone would have to rethink. Could be good for the consumer!
You guys don't want that. Apple is a great company who just gets buy on being popular and expensive and overhyped.
I feel like Apple could help Nintendo quite a bit. Not only would Nintendo be able to produce cutting edge hardware, but I believe Apple would still allow Nintendo to innovate, and maintain their fanbase (probably better than they are currently).
"Nintendo hasn't done as well as they could recently..." Stopped reading it there. What a load of bollocks. I take it the Wii wasn't a success, then? Or what about the DS? I take it that was a flop too? It's only a matter of time before the 3DS start to pick up in sales, and anyone who doubts that hasn't been alive long enough.
Nintendo doesnt need help from anyone. They always figure out ways of their mistakes.
I just have one Q why apple should continue in the market ?? Please, Ipad Ipod Iphone it all the samething. I'am waiting new tablet or big phone with a windows system or MAC system not remote wifi system.
No just no...
I think nintendo has once more console cycle left then SOMEONE is going to buy them unless someone new enters the market. More than Likely someone heavily seeded into cloud gaming
no thanks. I don't want a touch based console. -_-
Nice, more improbable and inane company acquisition articles....
HELL NO! DON'T WANT APPLE IN MY GAMING!
