How much did Nintendo purchase for?

Redding business news examines how much Nintendo may have paid the former owner — a Washington company — for “Domain Name Journal, which tracks public auctions of domain names, reported in June that [not] sold for $2,500 in a private sale. But the journal’s editor and publisher, Ron Jackson, said the value of ‘would be impossible to peg … outside of an extremely wide range – approximately $5,000 to $250,000.'”

Due to the non-disclosure, the amount could have easily gone for much more, and it’s highly unlikely the company accepted a low offer from a company like Nintendo with very deep pockets. So I guess we’ll never know for sure how much Nintendo may have paid Weyerhauser for the sale, but it better have been a grundle if Wii ultimately delivers on what it intends to be; a revolution in gaming.
