The Passing of a Video Game Visionary

Today we were saddened to learn that former Nintendo president Hiroshi Yamauchi had passed away at the age of 85.

Working at Nintendo since 1949, he led the company during their most critical times - reinventing themselves as an electronics entertainment business during a time when such things were first being developed. He spearheaded the development of the NES, SNES, Nintendo 64, GameBoy, and GameCube, and his name is widely recognized throughout the history of video games.
