When I encountered this rumor, I pated a visit to Xbox.com and found this out for now....

Question: Did Microsoft try to buy Nintendo?

( doughthe1st has joined )
( Chris has joined )
Chris: Hello and welcome to Xbox interactive online chat support! My name is Chris.
doughthe1st: hi
Chris: I'm affraid we have no information to confirm that. However, I would rule it just a rumor.
doughthe1st: ok, would you know for sure later on?
Chris: Well, if Microsoft did buy Nintendo, I'm sure the news would be spread all over the internet.
doughthe1st: I just heard they tried to buy it, but Nintendo said no
doughthe1st: thats about it
Chris: I see. Well, again, if we do hear anything to confirm that, we will most likely have the news up on our site.
doughthe1st: ok, cool
doughthe1st: thanks
Chris: You're welcome.

The way the person talked about it it seemed as though it ws true. I do not think that M$ bought The Big N, but I think that they will keep trying and might get it in the future. You never know these days.

it's all in that new book, i forget what it's called, all about the formation of the Xbox from start to finish. I am sure that MS did TRY to buy Nintendo, there is no real reason for anyone to lie about this stuff.

That's not the way I read it. It sounded to me like the minimum-wage lackey had no idea.
