Nintendo didn’t saw the iPad as a threat last year, but they better open their eyes. Cause one of the best employees in the public relations area of Nintendo will be leaving the company, and join Apple. His name is Rob Saunders, who was also responsible for the highly successful launched of the Nintendo Wii and DS. And Nick Grange, who had a similar position at game publisher Activation, will leave the company for Apple. Both will get a new job, which will meanly focus on iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch development.
It is however not yet sure what this exactly means, function like these can range from determining the hardware for the iPad 3, to rearrange the game section of the App Store.
Grange leaves as head of the European PR division of Activision. The developer that is responsible for hits like Call of Duty and Guitar Hero. Previously Grange already worked at gaming giants like Electronic Arts and Microsoft.
