    All right Nintendo, you still got some of the magic. Also, the problem with a bunch my fellow IABers trying to imitate this little trick is that whoever responded can probably spot a little girl earnestly writing about why she wants a DS, and a 20 year-old writing with their left hand about how much they want a DS too...

    it also says "with compliments". that means they sent her something other than that letter. one could only assume they sent her the DS, because that is the only thing mentioned in the return letter.

    If they say they hope they will enjoy the DS, it implies that they sent it since the class didn`t have one to begin with. But that`s cool >< I would`ve revised and given the girl a triple A+ for succeeding.

    "Beware Geeks bearing gifts. Did they include a voucher for 10 free games at over $50 each? No. Gotcha."

    Lion, you are right, as usual. They`d give those things away if they weren`t a status symbol and people weren`t willing to spend hundreds of dollars on them. They make all the money through games and accessories. That goes for all video game consoles.

    @ZNaught how she wrote the lower case b in cursive was odd, and sort of interesting. and i change my mind about the A/B+. i think she should get a C+/B- because of her grammatical and spelling errors but extra credit for having a successful letter

    You DO realize that both Microsoft and Apple have fairly active charity divisions which do exactly that? A girl at the school I taught at got cancer, I wrote to Apple and they sent her not just a top-of-the-line computer (better than mine at the time dadnurbit!) but about 20K worth of peripherals and software too. Big companies do stuff like that all the time.

    Oh man.. I remember I remember my only letter to Nintendo Power EVER got through. I was so embarrassed because I was basically criticizing some of their choices on their yearly awards.

    I regretted it THE INSTANT I sent the letter, and I swear my heart almost stopped when I saw that my letter was put in the next issue.

    Yay Nintendo!

    Im sure they only actually cost the company like 10 bucks a piece to make in materials, anyway, since they produce them by the millions.

    On the other hand, business is business. That`s 25 kids who`ll never touch an Xbox now.

    Good point.

    But I thought that was really thoughtfull, nevertheless. For that letter to actually go through the levels of beauraucracy so many companies of that size have and then to have the request granted... Wow.
    Yes, business is business. I just love it when the business-side of things can be compassionate too.

    I`m having a hard time understanding this... While most of you are saying `good on Nintendo` there`s a slight problem here.

    The biggest being that the parents told the girl she could not have a DS which is clearly stated in the letter. So nintendo just giving her one for nothing is undermining the parents wishes and at the same time the girl is learning if you appear pathetic enough people will give you nice things.

    Second is that this was part of a school assignment where kids are supposed to learn how to write to companies. This girl writes a letter and at the same time is soliciting nintendo for freebies. The teacher didn`t even correct most of the problems with that letter, so why did it even get sent?

    Good for the girl for working the system to her advantage, but she`s clearly being taught the wrong message.

    Oh shut up k3vin. It`s an 11 year old girl who has the IQ of a squirrel (as conferred by her poorly written/worded letter). Let her have her gameboys so she can rot what`s left of her undersized brain and become a hooker that you will probably pay for in a year to make up for your lack of a sex life.

    xxPinkxx - Actually, most (if not all) video game companies sell their consoles at a loss. They make a profit however in the games themselves (or so I have been told - correct me if I`m wrong though). It was still pretty decent of them.

    Exactly. Grade the letter, make the corrections,
    then have the kid re-write the corrected letter before sending it.

    A sixth grader should be able to spell better than that, and most certainly should be able to comprehend the existance of grammatical mistakes. "Writting"? Give me a break.

    Dear Bank United,

    My name is SalokinX and I am in desperate need of money. I spent all my money on heroin and cocaine, because they are really fun, and I busted my Credit Cards. I also have a pending loan of 50 thousand dollars, which I used to pay for college, which will probably result in my Dad loosing his house. And let`s not forget the 10 thousand dollars I own to the local loan shark, which has promised to make my life miserable.

    I send you this letter in hopes of getting not a loan, but simply "credit" (let`s call it that) of a few thousand dollars (it would be great if you could squeeze the word `hundred` before the thousand, eh?) to pay my debts and buy more cocaine and heroin.

    Thank you for taking time to read my letter and I really appreciate it if you replied or send me my biggest request. I hope you have a nice day.

    SalokinX

    I guess I`ll try to have a baby now and teach him how to write right away so that I, too, can get free stuff. I`ll make my child send a letter or two every day to a different company and see what I can gather...

    Or I could just learn how to write like a child... Better yet! A Down Syndrome child! YES! Better still! A poor down syndrome child with leukemia who has no money to pay for school and whose parent`s are addicted to heroin and beat me everyday!

    Oh, I`m going to make a fortune!
