Before you read the citation provided below, please do note first that it was NOT confirmed NOR debunked that Brian Fargo actually said any of the things which are being cited below this warning. This text was sent to me by one of my very close friends who happens to work in the video game making industry (he's from a small indie studio that distributes their games through PSN store), and he said that Brian Fargo said those things in one of closed game developer online chat sessions, so I cannot provide proofs that this actually happened, but I also can't provide proof of it being otherwise.

Anyway, here it is (the thing Brian Fargo supposedly said during a closed chat session with some of the video game developers):
"Satoru Iwata died several hours ago, at the age of 55. Current President of Nintendo. He was one of those people who created and co-developed MOTHER, Zelda, Metroid, and many other of Nintendo's IPs. This is a truly massive blow not only to the corporation itself, but also to the entire worldwide gaming society. It looks like this is it. This is that very moment thousands upon thousands of gamers across the planet feared the most - Nintendo is slowly (but surely) dying after all. The decline was just way too strong in the last 5 or so years. After more than 125 years of existence, Nintendo is now finally dying...like a true dragon. A truly historical moment."


P.S. If you don't know who Brian Fargo is: he's the creator of Wasteland, Fallout, Bard's Tale and Neuromancer.
I play these anytime and at any place: "Guitar Freaks" series, "Silent Hill" series, "The King of Fighters" series, X series, DDR.

I understand a massive change could take place following his death but the way a respected developer uses his death to start death of the company is highly disrespectful of him. The arrogance western developers have gotten because they now out-compete pretty much every Japanese company is showing more and more every single day.

yes nintendo will focus on replacing their ceo but you cannot cry death to them so soon. What a disrespectful person.

iPhone 5? Bigger screen? Sells like hotcakes.
It sells, but is nothing interesting to the older fans.

Seriously. No offense to Cook, but Jobs created the momentum Apple has today. The Apple Watch was supposed to be their next iPad, and it seems to be a dud.
Don't forget about your self-care~!

It's more like Samsung died when he died, considering the Samsung Galaxy S6 is pretty much an Iphone. Well, at least it's more durable and has a better camera.

Anyway, I'd say it's pretty stupid to use it as an example of a company dying. If anything, deaths of kings are usually associated with new life and change. Company presidents are like kings in that regard.

That seems like someone using someone else's death to push forward his animosity towards a company, or his ill wishes towards it.
I refuse to think a professional would do that. If I'm wrong, it's just another step down for humanity; we're already pretty low, anyhow.

Nintendo isn't dying though. They've been actively planning a different direction for the future. What a dumb ass.
