1orlickTue 6th Oct 2009 I concur. They have been fantastic the last half decade or so.http://news.vgchartz.com/news.php?id=5449using this approach, Business Week concludes with the following:"Japanese electronics maker Nintendo (7974.T) claims the No. 1 spot this year. Its sales have risen 36% annually over the past five years, while its value growth averaged 38%. Despite the hard times of the past year, Nintendo's continued emphasis on innovation has helped the company develop must-haves such as the DS handheld game machine and the Wii console, which outsold rival offerings from Sony (SNE) and Microsoft (MSFT). Nintendo's strategy is emblematic of the tech companies on the list. Like Nintendo, American technology giants Google (GOOG) (No. 2), Apple (AAPL) (No. 3), and Amazon.com (AMZN) (No. 17) have continued to invest heavily in innovation, commanding large market share with new products even as consumer spending and confidence have declined sharply."Change is good. Innovation is good. I think we all know the Wimote will not replace the analog stick and d-pad, and yet, like those, it is also here to stay. Well done Nintendo. Do you ever stop to think about what a huge change it has all been? Edited on Tue 6th October, 2009 @ 05:07 by orlick Ben Cartwright: You and your education. Adam Cartwright: Education is progress!
