Why Super Mario Bros. comes with coins

Written by Nedim Hadzic

Money makes the world go around
It appears that bundling coins wasn’t the only option for Super Mario Bros, but that it was the most appealing.

The man who created Mario, Shigeru Miyamoto revealed that fruits were also among the choices. However, Nintendo’s president Satoru Iwata decided to go with coins as other items might confuse players.

Miyamoto said that they were looking for something that would make people want it and decided that “it’s gotta be money”. Quite funny if you ask us, since we heard that Nvidia exclaimed the same thing before their graphics rebrands.

I agree, they must have really struggled to try and link the two things in this case.

It's called a joke. The struggle only gets tough when ones sense of humor becomes impaired. Not that it was particularly funny, but it wasn't that hard to understand either.

i do like to see an sarcastic finger at nvidia for a change on this site tbh,
but either way..
it certainly worked out of super mario then, wich makes me wonder why we ARE throwing fruits in the cart games :)
it would be a lot funnier to throw pieces of iron to the guy driving next to u :P

but then again, that might upset ppl who dont have much to go around with.. ><

its not hard to be a terrorist these days, but its damn hard to be political correct.. to quote AtdT
