Nintedo won't sell to an American company, you are right Chanser. But as other peoplse said this story was started by fan boys, it was kicked off when Nintendo showed off the Revolution (now Wii) for the first time in "Apple White" colour. I personaly hope they do not sell to Apple, although Apple are good (I'm using a MacBook Pro at the mo), they have no idea about the games industry, and Nintendo need to keep doing what they are doing now!
Also I hate the "Apple White" colour so I want Nintendo to return to nice colours again.
Its nothing to do with how much money a company makes - mergers can happen between successful companies too for strategic reasons. In fact a successful company is obviously more attractive than an unsuccessful one. That said - never gonna happen.
The rumour actually began with Microsoft showing off that new handheld (cant remember the names) to go up against the Ipod. Its plays games as well, so suddenly Ipod needs games, then Nintendo got metioned. You can see where the rumour ended up.
In black yes, but the white looks crap like the eMac, and the new iMac range. Although I use macs I am lucky enough to have a MacBook Pro at the mo, so I don't have to put up with the white colour (they really should do iMacs in all the colours they used to, white is just nasty). Actually forget Black, Navy to match my DS Lite would be nice!
