Hiroshi Yamauchi, the man that led Nintendo to become a global gaming giant has died aged 85.

He led the company from its gaming beginnings, through the NES, SNES, Gameboy, N64 and into the GameCube years.

Thanks for the games, the fun and the memories, Yamauchi-San.

Really pioneered the platform/software business model, as well as understanding that top quailty First Party software is actually key to any long term sucess. A lesser man would have been overwhelmed on going against Sony, but he stuck to his guns and we are all better for it.

Amazing! The guy never actually even played a game!
