View Full Version : Game over for Nintendo chief

Japanese video game maker Nintendo said Friday that its charismatic president Hiroshi Yamauchi, 74, would step down after more than half a century at the helm, handing power to a carefully groomed management group.

Yamauchi, outspoken but publicity-shy and a standout with his purple suits and plainspoken style, guided Nintendo's meteoric rise from a tiny maker of card games to a video game powerhouse.

Is this the end of Nintendo!?!? Are they bowing out to the Almighty Xbox?!?!?! Am I blowing smoke out my A$$?!?!?! more then likely :cool:
