Apple + Nintendo: Cult Fans Keep Wishing

Double cult fans are still talking about an Apple buyout of Nintendo. Crave Talk writes: “Online conspiracy theorists suggest that Apple is about to frag the gaming community with a revelation that could shake Microsoft to its core: Apple will buy Nintendo. What could be more quintessentially left-field Apple behavior than buying out the US’s number three games console manufacturer?”

Don’t get me wrong, I like both Nintendo and Apple for what they are good at, but the notion that the latter will buy the former is absurd. Sure, Apple has amassed huge success from it’s music business, which just so happens to be in the entertainment space like games, but if Apple wanted to get into video games, I think they’d do it themselves in some small manner, and build it up.
