This probably belongs in the Gaming Thread, but I thought it was such a nice story that everyone should hear it

Also, it proves not all customer services are full of scumbags

they're going to have to pay the extra 50 dollars for the Destroyed-by-fire fee that comes with every Microsoft product including Xbox!


+100 points to nintendo for proving they have had and always will have more soul that any other console company ever made.

Must be the side effects from the "Fat Man" and "Little Boy."

Pfft. Sony didn't replace my PS2 whenever my house burnt down. And I'd only had it for one day.

Good for Nintendo, though.

They were the names of the atomic bombs dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima respectively in WWII; the joke was suggesting that since Nintendo is a Japanese company, the side effects of the radiation from aforementioned bombs must have resulted in congenital defects in the figureheads of Nintendo, which is why they are acting compassionately instead of adhering to the practices of most other companies who would blow off their consumers.


My humor is too sophisticated for the pit
#19
even though this is great i cant help but think if this happened in the last gen of gaming (when the gamecube was out) nintendo might not have done this because they weren't sitting so pretty on the sales of the wii and ds. good on them anyway

Was it really worth it? Wouldn't a joke with poop or pee or boobs be easier?

Short answer: Yes.

Long answer: If even just one person understood it, then I am content. Who would have thought no one would remember the names of the bombs dropped on Japan?

...Everyone seems to remember the Enola Gay easily enough, I wonder why

Would have been way cooler if they replaced his entire Nintendo gaming collection

Yeah!

All the cool kids and/or sociopath's remember what they hear about atomic bombs
#25
that was some nice gesture... even though its more publicity than anything, i must say that in the end Nintendo did something great for this guy, and it goes beyond the Gameboy and Wii IMO

I skipped the first 3 periods of school for that, had to deal with an extremely packed parking lot, and a long wait...probably the best decision I've made in a while.

If you think it's a marketing ploy then that makes YOU cynical. It makes NINTENDO pragmatic.

It is cynical if they do "a good deed" purely because they know the good publicity will boost their reputation and sales.

Note, if you pm it to me, please make note in thread. I'd hate to get five or six pm's with the same message.

Perhaps this is a bit out of the way, but I actually find this joke kind of...fail.

Sony is a Japanese company also, so why wouldn't they receive the same effect?

Oh, and to the guy who got the PS2 and his house burned down the next day, it was probably the PS2 that caused it. That's what Sony stuff does to you. I'm sure their scheme was to burn your house down in a chance that, perhaps, you would receive new merch for your house that was made by Sony.

However Sony are also a Japanese based company, surely they should fall under the same effect hmmmmmm?

the thing is, this is at a time when there is no problem selling wiis. instead of giving a boy something he doesn't need which he lost in a fire (they could have given him a second hand microwave which would have been more useful), they could have sold the nintendo product and instead given the money to charity. let's face it, this helps market their product(s).
