I'm basing it off things he had said publicly throughout the years. I don't need to speak to him personally or read his mind.

A CEO will never, ever, announce a company is for sale until it has been acquired, or it is actually fishing the market for someone to acquire it. Those interviews you're talking about are so carefully planned that taking them on face value is a little... innocent... of you.

If Nintendo were that money hungry they would have given in to Sony. Instead, they took the fall and created a monster in the process all due to the fact that they didn't want someone else to have the rights to all their stuff.

How much do you understand about business, exactly? Nintendo and Sony's falling out had to do with the inability to come to a consensus about how some things should be done. It wasn't because Nintendo decided it didn't want money.

You're saying that Nintendo's games on Apple products would not change a thing? That is outright hilarious.

Prove it will. With facts, otherwise you've got nothing.

Well, it tells me that games and gamers mean more to him than they would a businessman. He would remain more loyal to the games and gamers whereas a business man would be more loyal to the money.

Then you don't understand what a CEO does. A CEO's job is to oversee a company, and ensure it grows. Iwata has decided that the best way to make money is make good games. He is not making good games for the sake of it (or, if he is, he's not a businessperson who should be running an $80 billion company).

In other words, regardless of Iwata's philosophy towards games, his job is to make money. The guy won't even be playing games at work. His entire life would be meetings and spreadsheets.

That still doesn't change who Iwata is as a person, only what position he is in.

While Iwata is working (and for a CEO, that's roughly 12 hours per day, 6-7 days per week), his position is what he is.

I really can't believe that people actually think a CEO of a major entertainment company is approaching his job like it's a hobby. It's incredible.

In my defence, I was being quite genuine - I reckon there is a greater chance that someone (personal wish, Apple, but could be someone else), will acquire Nintendo before Nintendo hits the generation after Wii U. :P

So technically I was on topic. Then I needed to break out some of the M&A 101 to back myself up :P

If anyone is going to buy out Nintendo (which I sincerely doubt will ever happen for quite awhile now), I'd rather it be someone like Sony, Valve, or heck, even Microsoft over Apple any day of the week. I hate Apple and I will quit console gaming and will stick to just PC gaming only if they ever bought Nintendo.

Do you lot actually enjoy gaming on whatever system is to your preference? because most of the time all I see is the postings of a bunch of Mike Pachter wannabe tools.

Of course not, we all know it's impossible to enjoy one product AND talk about the future of another. That would require a level of higher thinking and multitasking most of us simply aren't capable of.

Thank you for the wonderful contribution my friend.

Because this is a Wii U thread. Would you like us to talk about Facebook's acquisition of Instagram as well? lol

EDIT: This is a 100% response to the original poster. This is not directed at anybody else and I thought I needed to make that a bit clearer.

That's a very good question that I'm not sure how I could answer. However, the question of what happens after this/the next console generation is an interesting one that applies to every games console manufacturer. The games industry is in a very weird position right now; games are already very expensive to make, and a new console generation would only increase the budget of games by twofold. Increased budgets mean that companies need more copies of a game to sell, and thus creative/unconventional ideas will be completely pushed to the back and even kicked out of the theater in the pursuit of making a profit. And even right now we're seeing this stuff happening; EA says that Dead Space 3 needs to sell 5 million copies in order to be "Viable" and EA is achieving this by forcing the game to have co-op (I'm opposed to the execution, not idea) and making half of the enemies human soldiers. Essentially Dead Space, one of the most successful new IPs of this generation, has been morphed into a hybrid of what it originally was and another shooter in a market filled with a ridiculous amount of same-y shooters.

Apple had many years to make that happen, but they are too busy cattering to blind fanboy's to do anything about it. The closest they got was the rise of the App Store games, but as far as I know, Apple had nothing to do with that. They just offered the service for anyone to use it and that was it.

I know! I hate it when people try and use their brains to have halfway interesting conversations, too.

It was a joke my brother : )

So apparently Apple has become a bit of a sensitive issue for this site.. I did not know that in the beginning of the thread. lol

Not interesting in the slightest when every topic falls back on the same over spewed garble with the needle stuck while your record skips repeatedly. I wouldn't call that higher brain functioning, more like malfunctioning ;)
