Why Apple Should Buy Nintendo

While I still fundamentally disagree with the concept that the Nintendo Wii was “just a fad,” MG Siegler still makes the best case I’ve read so far of why Apple might want to buy Nintento:

I’m worried that instead they’ll go down the Sega road and just pump out cheap versions of their great old franchises to anyone who will take them. That’s why I’d love to see Apple step in and buy Nintendo, and let them operate as the independent iOS gaming wing of the company. If Apple wants to move hardware, it’s hard to imagine a better way than having exclusives on all of the Nintendo titles going forward (as well as the back catalog).
