    Allegedly Nintendo has bought a parcel near Belgrade, Serbia.
    Next to the new IKEA factory. Nothing is yet known about the price or the reason.

    Dude posting 2 line thread with no source is the best to go. How I get my news daily. Why post news without ANYTHING backing this up? Atleast you didn't post this in user submitted news

    Trying to figure that out myself.

    Nintendo of Europe is in Germany and most of their big stuff happens there. Even if you go on the UK website most of the positions are for Germany, and their store in the UK is a PO box https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Support/...icial-Nintendo-Nintendo-UK-Store-1106624.html .
    I don't think Serbia or the Balkans in general are the next great region, compared to say their efforts in Thailand and Korea.
    It is not the most technological country out there, electronics assembly for cheap goods/technically we are assembled in in this part of the world often going to Hungary which also has the benefits of being in Europe and Croatia would probably be said to beat them in tech. There are any number of other locations I might have picked for R&D. More heavy industrial is not absent but it is not something most would note.
    Shipping is not the easiest (it is landlocked, though land routes are not the worst, there is also the Danube).
    If it is a parcel of land then while it is not the most expensive country on earth it would surely still be cheaper to buy an existing warehouse or office, or subcontract out repairs or shipping and storage. If it comes with a warehouse or something (or one to be built) then OK.
    While I mentioned Europe above it might not be that, however it probably not the place I would pick for a push into the Balkans.

    Well that's my point. This country is a failure. So I really have no freaking idea if it's true or not. I see no benefits

    Conspiracy theory alert! I think I know why they're building the warehouse there: if ww3 breaks out in Europe and the middle east, they can bring about world peace by giving both sides nintendo switches. Right?

    Agree, that is why they chose a shitty country. No one would suspect a thing! #sneakygreedtendo

    Like I said, it was a question by a journalist to the president of Serbia while.opening some German factory, he said and I quote "no comment at the moment"
    Back in 1997 Sony was planing on opening something here, but reconsidered due to politics. All we got was some adress, still there

    I bet it's that NX that everyone was talking about before the Switch came out and everyone forgot about it.
    Fingers crossed!

    Don't get me started. Corruption is the biggest problem. If you're not in a political party(the one on the power) your chances of getting a job are slim to none. And so on, and ao on. I could on this subject for hours
