Articolo interessante che però speravo rivelasse qualche scena sconvolgente
.. grazie Guy! Ciao
Here's an excerpt from the book I typed up for you guys. Atari, who owned the floppy-disk computer game rights to Nintendo's "Donkey Kong", threatened Nintendo with legal action and the cancellation of a deal made with Nintendo. Atari thought Nintendo had double-crossed them and sold the game to Coleco.
"Arakawa whispered to Lincoln, "Don't say anything. Mr. Yamauchi will do this." ...
Yamauchi entered the room abruptly and, without addressing anyone, stood at the end of the table. He became, as one of those present put it, "unglued."
He began with a breathy, high-pitched tirade in a Marlon Brando monotone and quickly became loud and abusive. With a piercing cry, he swung his arm in an arc in front of him, shooting his outstretched index finger toward [Coleco president Arnold] Greenberg.
Yamauchi's diatribe, all in Japanese, completely stunned everyone in the room, with the possible exception of the Arakawas. Howard Lincoln says, "It scared the hell out of me." ...
When Greenberg turned to Arakawa for help, he was met with a cold stare. By the time Yamauchi wound down, no one in the room said a word.
The translator finally began to speak. "Mr. Yamauchi is very upset," the man said. ...
Yamauchi spoke again, never wavering. He made it clear that there was nothing else to be said. No excuses would be listened to."
Lunga vita al Presidente.
