PostSubject: Former Nintendo President Passes Away   Thu Sep 26, 2013 4:49 am

Former Nintendo president Hiroshi Yamauchi has passed away at the age of 85 because of pneumonia. He is the president of Nintendo from 1949-2002.

Yamauchi is the man that led the company through it's great transition form a maker of children's toys and card games, to one of the greatest video game companies in history.
It is under his reign that the company's NES (Famicom) system saved the video game industry after the video game industry crash back in the 80's.

Since then, the video game industry continues to flourish and become what it is today.
It is also under his reign that Nintendo introduced the GameBoy, one of the first handheld consoles in history.

Here's a little more of his history Smile

I'm sorry to hear that he passed away... He truly revolutionized video games as we see them today. I think the world will be eternally grateful to him. I hope he finds his peace.
