The History of Nintendo


In case you haven’t already seen this oldie but goody, Gamespot has a nice little profile on Nintendo’s longstanding history in the entertainment business. From the article: “Nintendo has been in existence in one form or another since 1889, making it the oldest company to be involved in the manufacturing of video games. Started in Kyoto, Japan, by Fusajiro Uamauchi, the business made and sold Japanese-style Hanafuda playing cards… and into a business that would later become known as the video arcade.”

I can’t begin to tell you how cool this company is…
