    [100% Legit News] Nintendo CEO bought 10,000 Wii U's

    “When I saw the sales figures come in for the Wii U, I was dismayed,” said Iwata at a press conference, “As CEO, I can not just do nothing. This is why I bought ten thousand Wii Us in an effort to make the numbers appear larger. I apologize for attempting to deceive investors, but please understand that I really believe in this product and the potential it has.”

    Iwata paused for a moment and then continued speaking, “Personally, I barely use my Wii U so I understand where some users are coming from. I can assure them that if they wait until 2014 or 2015 that games will eventually come. In the meantime, I suggest that current Wii U owners browse Miiverse and draw a lot of pictures.”

    One member of the press asked how Nintendo will entice potential buyers of the system to which Iwata replied, “Currently there is not much to sway consumers into purchasing a Wii U right this instant. To be honest, I’m surprised that there are still people who are thinking about buying a Wii U. In any case, you can browse Miiverse on your computer and smartphone and look at the pictures that current Wii U owners have drawn.”

    Iwata ended the conference stating, “Does anyone want to buy a Wii U from me right now?”

    I'd buy a Wii U from him if he'd sign it, the collector's value would be epic. And in a few years, worth hundreds if not thousands of dollars.

    There is no way this can be real, right? If so this is terrible news, and perhaps the most negative action in history for Nintendo. Talk about doom and gloom.

    It reeks fake in my opinion. Posted it to share a laugh to be honest.

    But it's genuinely hilarious lmao. Some of these quotes are comedy gold, even better than the fake Kaz account

    Nintendo's CEO is a very, very noble. This deserves a bow for such humility, modesty, and pure honesty.

    I loved one of the comments!

    I went to interview Mr Iwata at his house yesterday, it was quite awkward. It was hard to walk around, with all the consoles laying around. He had about 20 WiiUs hooked up to his TV. His “couch” was really just a bunch of Wii-U boxes stacked together. So was his entertainment center. Same with his tables, chairs, everything. And his toilet…

    He said, “You wee on WiiU,” followed by laughter.
