It may only be a rumor, but I can't help thinking of the possibilities of playing the new Zelda on my x-box....

They'll make an offer IF nintendo is willing to sell. I think the only reason nintendo will try and sell is if their DS and their next gen console both flop completely, then they'll probably do waht they can to cut losses and run.

Japanese video game company Nintendo on Thursday denied the possibility of a takeover by Microsoft as previously reported by German magazine, Wirtschaftswoche.

Microsoft has never approached Nintendo for a possible purchase of shares, according to Nintendo's Yasuhiro Minagawa, public relations. "Nintendo is not on sale, and there is no such talk at all."

This was in the last issue of the Official Xbox magazine. meaning that they knew about it 5 months ago meaning that Microsoft told them to print it as a rumor. Sorry to all the anti-xbox nintendo fanboys.

It was in the official xbox magazine that nintendo might make the next xbox and that was last month's issue which is made ready 3 months in advance.

I knew Bill Gates was an evil genius. :p First Microsoft buys Rare, then they attempted to kill Link and Mario. At least they're persistent.........
