I've thought for the entire past generation that Nintendo should get out of the hardware business and lean on MS as their hardware/network.

You're old enough to have said "Sonic on Nintendo system" so you know know better.

Yeah I know...but that was after Sega didn't have a system anymore.

I'm 100% for it though....I have missed out on a lot of Nintendo 1st party games because of the lack of achievements.

I'm also almost 100% sure that the NX system will still have shit online function.

But they are a toy company, the investment in these electronic toys is just outrageous and to have a good online they will have to really invest in data centers to compete. I don't think that is the direction that a card company wants to go, too risky, too competitive. I think if you look at their recent move in the mobile phone space, it makes it more realistic that they would partner with someone.

To me, it's awesome for both companies.

Xbox could really use that type of boost right now. Nintendo is its own company and if they're able to stay alive even without performing as well as these other consoles, then I don't think its necessary to make such a big merge. If Nintendo were going bankrupt and going to disappear, then I could see it making sense.
