An interview with Hiroshi Yamauchi
, former president of Nintendo, has been doing the rounds. It's supposedly published in the February issue of Wired
. The interview is quite colorful, to say the least. For instance, at one point Yamauchi claims that during a meeting with Microsoft's Steve Ballmer he said to him, 'hey, Ballmer, why don't you suck my tiny yellow balls.'
This was his response to Microsoft's offer to buy Nintendo. The quotation is offered up in bold letters in the sidebar, so there's no chance you'll miss it. There's also some other equally outrageous stuff. Is any of it real? No. It's a fake interview and a fake Wired magazine mock-up. Digit magazine has an article
apparently thought the article was real.
According to this article
, Nintendo has officially confirmed that the interview is a hoax.
