Should Apple buy Nintendo?

I know this is total crazy talk but I think Nintendo and Apple could be a good fit together. Apple could do what they do best and make great hardware and this would free Nintendo up to do what they do best which is make great games. Both companies pride themselves on being true innovators and creating new experiences. Since Nintendo doesn't really cater to hardcore gamers I don't think it would be that big of a problem that Apple's hardware is multipurpose. Owning Nintendo would give Apple exclusive rights to the most valuable IP in gaming. Apple could start locking in new users at a very young age.

There's more of a chance SEGA releasing - Shenmue III than Apple buying Nintendo.

What you guys don't see it??? I'm worried Nintendo is going to wither and die if they don't do something big.

NO Y WOULD YOU WANT TO RUIN FOND MEMORIES OF MY CHILDHOOD YOU SICK HUMAN BEING. please just deactivate your account and go and sit in the corner and think about what youve done, you sick, sick man.

But in all seriousness, apple probably have offered to buy Nintendo before, they can't stand nintendos rejection, and when big companies can't stand rejection they either buy them out, or make an exact clone of the company.
I don't believe Nintendo would sell their soul to apple.. Nintendo have been around a lot longer than apple, over a hundred years, and they know how to keep a business running and how to constantly recreate themselves.
apple is a one trick pony. I love their phones and iPads for one reason, the content on the AppStore, of it wasnt for 3rd oarty developers, apple would be fueled by nothing but fanboy sheep. Apple should not be taking a 30% cut of games when it's what makes it.


Tldr- Nintendo has been around a long time, apple has not really stood the chance of time just yet.....Nintendo know more tricks than apple and know how to innovate. Nintendo > Apple.
