Appletendo?

I know, thats the worst name ever but it took me a whole 3 seconds to come up with it so thats why.

If Apple and Nintendo did decide to merge then it couldn’t be more perfect. My favourite games company, my favourite company in general as one.

This is from slashdot:

“CNET wonders if ‘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 behaviour than buying out the U.S.’s number three games console manufacturer?’ The article goes on to compare the companies, saying ‘both have followings whose brand dedication verges on the religiously devout’ and design styles that are so similar that ‘the Nintendo DS Lite practically looks like Jonathan Ive built it.’ The writer says an Apple and Nintendo merger will ‘penetrate the mainstream consumer market with Macintosh computers’. The possible outcome of a merger would be a console based around the Mac Mini. As for whether Apple have the cash to pull it off: ‘Cisco was rumoured to be looking at a purchase of Nintendo earlier in the year, so the idea of Nintendo being bought is not outlandish in itself. Apple’s market cap is $51.7bn (Nintendo’s is $23.1bn)'”
