Happy 125th Nintendo!


Happy 125th Nintendo!

Yes, you’ve read that right! September 23rd is Nintendo’s 125th birthday! Its NOT a typo.

 

( If most of us stop spending time bashing Nintendo, bashing each other and consoles and be real gamers, then this awesome gaming history would be common knowledge. I think all gamers should learn some gaming history about the present and past companies. (=    )

 

Nintendo has been in the business a long time before Microsoft and Sony came in, even though Nintendo wasn’t a gaming business at first their number of years before still count! Here’s a little history about Nintendo-

 

“Nintendo Co., Ltd.(任天堂株式会社Nintendō Kabushiki gaisha?) is a Japanesemultinationalconsumer electronics company headquartered inKyotoJapan. Nintendo is the world’s largest video game company by revenue.[8] Founded on September 23, 1889[2] by Fusajiro Yamauchi, it originally produced handmade hanafudaplaying cards.[9] By 1963, the company had tried several small niche businesses, such as cab services andlove hotels.[10]

Abandoning previous ventures in favor of toys in the 1960s, Nintendo then developed into a video gamecompany in the 1970s, ultimately becoming one of the most influential in the industry and Japan’s third most valuable listed company with a market value of overUS$85 billion.[11]Nintendo of America is also the majority owner of the Seattle Mariners Major League Baseballteam.[12]

The name Nintendo can be roughly translated from Japanese to English as “leave luck to heaven.”[13] As of March 31, 2014, Nintendo reports historically cumulative sales of over 670.43 million hardware units and 4.23 billion software units.[4]
