    Nintendo Issues Statement Regarding 14 Year Olds Manufacturing Wii U

    Nintendo has released a statement after it became known that children as young as 14 were helping manufacture the Wii U at Foxconn. The Koyoto based company says that it is investigating the matter which has caused outrage online. Here's Nintendo's response to the matter.

    “Nintendo is in communication with Foxconn and is investigating the matter. We take our responsibilities as a global company very seriously and are committed to an ethical policy on sourcing, manufacture and labor. In order to ensure the continued fulfillment of our social responsibility throughout our supply chain, we established the Nintendo CSR Procurement Guidelines in July 2008. We require that all production partners, including Foxconn, comply with these Guidelines, which are based on relevant laws, international standards and guidelines. If we were to find that any of our production partners did not meet our guidelines, we would require them to modify their practices according to Nintendo’s policy. For more information about Nintendo’s Corporate Social Responsibility report, please visit http://www.nintendo....en/index.html.”
