Are you high? If so....ermm nvm.
Are YOU FREAKING HIGH?
Nintendo doesn't own activision in any way. Nintendo is their own company, being a console maker, a publisher, a love hotel, a card maker, a taxi service, a developer, etc. Activision is their own separate thing, they publish games on various consoles.
Let me put it this way.
Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony are schools and we are the children.
Activision is the ice cream man. They will make money by selling their merchandise to us, the children. To be able to sell us candy and stuff, they have to get the permission of the schools to do so. BUT WAIT.....Microsoft has paid the ice cream man to be the first on the ice cream man's route.
nintendo doesnt own it yet but it might later.
vivines 60% of activision went for sale
MS and nintendo are likly candidtaes to buy this stake.
if MS gets it then xbox will get cod if nintendo then wiiU will get cod.
MS is currently more likly than nintendo.
personly i think the stocks will end up being split several ways.
from what i heard nintendo has 10b.
not sure how accreat that is.
MS has the most money becuase they sell a large veriety.
i think nintendo should buy atleast some of activision
ofcourse nintendo could screw themselfs over doing this if they do it wrong. this is probly the best time for a nintendo exclusive because xbox720 and PS4 come out in 1-2 years. id let there be xbox and PS3 versions, owner companies pay for their version, and have it be a noticable downgrade from teh wiiU version. have no versions available for xbox 720/PS4. if they are backwords compatiable then none for PS3 or xbox360 eather. have first 2 gens available to all consules and last be a wiiU exclusive, which would help wiiU sales and hurt the other 2. xbox and PS3 versions will probly be a downgrade from wiiU, probly wont as bad becasue xbox/PS3 isnt as far behind as wii was.
other games will need another kidn of slow imcorporation.
if they but and make a immediat wiiU exclusive they will probly cut the value of the game ot the point it isnt worth it, and hurt nintendo bad. sales from all systems, would help, they would rack up money on MS/Sony paying to have it on their system, and money activision would make on sales.
but i dont think nintendo would go through with it.
No offense, but its like watching two children talk nonsense(or watching two stoners talk....take your pick)....
Are you guys using your phones to write this? If not, then dafuq?
First of all, Nintendo is in debt(if I read this right, then yeah, they're in debt, much like everyone else on the planet). Just because they were console makers before microsoft and sony doesn't mean they have more money. Money doesn't last forever you know, you have to spend money to make money(and a lot of times, you end up losing money because your console failed *cough* virtual boy *cough*). Also, nintendo is a console maker and a publisher, while microsoft is freaking owned by one of the richest man on the planet, selling computers, consoles, phones, even cake. Sony sells TVs, Mp3s, basically anything electronic (they also sell toasters, the PS3 being their more popular model...haha padiego make a funny). When it comes to money, Nintendo doesn't have much to work with....oh and THEY'RE IN DEBT.
AND WTF ARE YOU GUYS SAYING?
I'm not sure where you're getting your info but Nintendo has 0 debt. This last quarter was their first loss in a long time. And it was only caused by the 3ds's unplanned price cut. I think you might have them confused with Sony, who's in trouble.
Here's the numbers just for comparison.

Now most of you know that the WiiU is Nintendo's first console to be sold at a loss at launch, unlike Sony/Microsoft who seem to always sell at a loss. However in a recent interview about the WiiU reggie stated that Nintendo as long as you buy one game with your console they make a profit:
Q: This will be the first Nintendo game machine that the company's going to be selling at a loss at launch. How does that change the business model for Nintendo?
A: The business model doesn't change dramatically, in that as soon as we get the consumer to buy one piece of software, then that entire transaction becomes profit positive.
In the end, the business model is still to drive the install base of hardware, and then to drive a strong tie ratio with all of the other software and experiences for the consumer. And if we're able to do that, then we will create significant profit for the company.
