g8-summit-nintendo-ds-SJUNE 26, 2008 • Foreign Ministers attending the G8 summit in Kyoto were presented with special gifts, including a specially lacquered Nintendo DS, including their own Mii avatar.

Impact: Nintendo is getting very savvy with its marketing. With media from throughout the world on hand for the G8 summit, it provides special DSs to the foreign ministers. If footage of the ministers actually playing their new gifts surfaces, it will be gold for Nintendo.
