Trip Hawkins: Microsft Will Buy Nintendo

That's what he said in an interview with, anyway. Here's his quote:

My magic eight ball says they [Nintendo] will be acquired by Microsoft within five years.

Dude, that eight ball isn't magic. Did you bid on that at the 3DO bankruptcy auction?

I tend to immediately dismiss anything Trip Hawkins says because he's, well, Trip Hawkins. But let me play devil's advocate for a minute: Even when somebody's pants are pulled down and their head is buried in the sand with their ass in the air, they can still tell you when the sun is shining.

They'll have sand in their mouth, of course. You'll have to work around that.
