Hopefully when they move their sales team, it also will pulling along their development teams too to SF!
Game Informer reports the Mario factory is looking to move part of Washington operation to either San Francisco or New York.
Nintendo's sales and marketing teams might soon take on a sunnier disposition, or at least find themselves in sunnier locales. Game Informer Online is reporting that Nintendo of America is planning to move its sales and marketing force out of the rainy Pacific Northwest, with San Francisco and New York listed as a pair of potential destinations.
The Web site attributed the news to "sources close to Game Informer Online" but did not specify their relationship to Nintendo. According to the site, employees at Nintendo's Redmond, Washington, headquarters were told the news yesterday. They were reportedly told to choose between relocating or accepting severance packages by the beginning of next month, with the new offices expected to open in the fall.
As of press time, a Nintendo representative had not yet returned GameSpot's request for comment.
Man, can there be a bigger culture shock than moving from Redmond, WA, to S.F. or NYC? Those poor, poor people...
two words... Monterrey Nuevo Leon Mexico... well maybe those were more than two... who cares any way? I could be your office boy Mr. Reggie, i will do it for free. i can awser the phone, take your notes and kick some asses for you!!!
NOA will never move its headquarters out of Redmond. The fact of the matter is, Seattle happens to be the closest U.S. continental port from Japan. The whole reason that Nintendo even moved to Redmond from NYC in the first place was to save on shipping costs. Its also the reason why Nintendo's Canadian headquarters are located in Vancouver B.C. Frankly, this article is just talking about moving the marketing division, which really can be loacted anywhere in the U.S.
nintendo should set up a massive base in england like in the north east and get to rural areas or britain!
Actually Nintendo should come to Hartford CT, or New Haven CT. Cause we need better things here in CT.
Screw yall... NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK FTW It would be perfect, Nintendo World in NYC, Nintendo Head Quarters in NYC... Nintendo and New York both begin with "N". Nintendo York....
Screw Chicago go San Francisco, I am going to be a computer animator so i'd like to be close to anything Nintendo., and seriously what do New yorkers or Chicago people have anything to do with technology, nothing TWO WORDS: SILICON VALLEY the bay area has the best HQs in the world-Google, Apple, Microsoft all started here in the Bay Area
I don't know why everyone is high on Nintendo moving near whereone lives... marketing and sales? Hardly the first sector of gaming we think of.
why move, stupid. what they need to do is stock wii's in the stores, i still can't find one, Darn nintendo.
"They were reportedly told to choose between relocating or accepting severance packages by the beginning of next month..." Gully...
WOW, WHY DO PEOPLE NOT READ?! A bunch of people have posted their "regrets" that they can't work for Nintendo now, since they are "moving". Number one: this isn't confirmed yet. Number two: it's just ONE DIVISION! Their headquarters will still be there!!!
Well this sucks cause I know a lot of people that work for nintendo!! some people on my girlfriend's bowling team for instance!!! don't leave us nintendo!!!
Who cares? It's sales and marketing. Most of the sales and marketing people don't know anything about games anyways. This is pretty lame news.
Game Informer reported this? A magazine that made it's mark by being the add-on sale shoved down consumers throats with every purchase at Gamestop reports something and Gamespot posts about it... look, if I remember correctly, Game Informer reported in early 2003 that GTA 3 and Vice City will NEVER make it to Microsofts Xbox.... thus, they've lost all credibility with me.
Seattle area is losing too much love. UPS to Atlanta, Boeing to Chicago. Well, Boeing was a giganitc lost for tax money for the state. San Fran and NY are expensive. Nintendo was be making some serious cash with the Wii.
Well NOA is located in Redmond (for now) and Nintendo Canada (as laughable as that may be) is located in Richmond, BC, in the same region. Maybe that's part of the move. Ah **** who am I kidding.
