well its walmart

whats nintendo gonna do? It's not like they're gonna threaten walmart in any way, shape, or form. with Nintendo's stock crashing they CAN'T do anything. They need Wal-Mart more than Wal-Mart needs them.

Classic example of what happens when corporations get too big for their own good. they become the dictator.

The real crime/ scam/ shenanigans here is Nintendo charging $40 for ocarina of time.
