Redding business news examines how much Nintendo may have paid the former owner — a Washington company — for wii.com: “Domain Name Journal, which tracks public auctions of domain names, reported in June that wii.us [not wii.com] sold for $2,500 in a private sale. But the journal’s editor and publisher, Ron Jackson, said the value of wii.com ‘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.
