Nintendo Investor Wants Micro-transactions In Mario

Last month, Nintendo finally bowed to the pressure and decided to start making mini versions of its games for smartphones. Those games are meant to act as teasers to entice gamers to buy the complete versions on Nintendo's consoles.

Nonetheless, it seems that this is not enough for investors who still want the company to fully endorse freemium and microtransactions model.

"We believe Nintendo can create very profitable games based on in-game revenue models with the right development team,"wrote Investor Seth Fischer in a letter to Nintendo president Satoru Iwata.. "Just think of paying 99 cents just to get Mario to jump a little higher."

Fischer runs a hedge fund that owns shares in Nintendo.
