Franklin commented on Rare Co-Founder Has No Idea Why Nintendo Didn'...:

I don't know why Nintendo doesn't buy more studios generally. It would solve their 3rd party games problem (well, technically they wouldn't be 3rd party anymore, but the result is same).

They certainly have enough money. They've worked closely with Capcom and Namco, giving them key franchises to work on, buying those would be a good idea.

What bewilders me though is that Nintendo hasn't bought Sega yet. I mean really, it virtually is a 2nd party developer for Nintendo already.



Franklin commented on Feature: How to Track Down Nintendo's Original...:

There's a Pokemon Center in most major cities, like Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya etc, though they're not always the easiest to get to. The one in Fukuoka is right in the main station, if you're visiting there.

In Tokyo, there is also the Nintendo Game Front, located on the 2nd floor of the Panasonic Center. It's OK, you can play the latest games there. Amazingly, there is no Nintendo World Store in Tokyo or anywhere in Japan. Really.

There's so much in Akhihabara, but the most famous is probably Super Potato.
