Or rather, an attempt at acquiring Nintendo? In a CNet article, both TiVo and Nintendo are mentioned as possible targets for a Cisco acquisition. From the article’s speculation: “Another possible acquisition candidate for Cisco is Nintendo, the No. 3 game console maker in the U.S. A stretch? Not really. Microsoft, which is emerging as a key competitor to Cisco in the home entertainment market, is already in this market with the Xbox 360. Gaming has already proved to be a strong application for broadband, so it makes sense that Cisco would want to own a game device to help drive more traffic on its network. With its popular GameBoy product, Nintendo would also provide Cisco an entree into the mobile-handheld market.”

So they speculate that Cisco is interested in buying, but is Nintendo interested in selling? I’d guess “No.”


I stopped there.

...and even IF Nintendo was interested in selling, I question if Cisco could come up with anywhere near enough cash.

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Video: most likely A Mock Up.

Posible Cisco Buyout: They obviously Don't get nintendo's Values. I highly doubt the company would sell.
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

GameSpot is on it now too.

Jesus, they make profit on everything they sell, they have no reason to sell. Don't they know that?

Nintendo isnt going to sell itself. They bought some 2 million shares of their own stock not too long ago to avoid a buyout. But who knows? I sure hope they arent ever bought out, though with its success, I think its inevitable.
