Dear Scott,

     Nintendo is proud to have worked with your company over the past 8 years to market the highly successful Nintendo video game systems to your hotel customers. Our current License Agreement, dated May 12, 1998, continues through the year 2008, reflecting our mutual confidence in the future of our relationship and our commitment to the provision of quality entertainment products to your hotel customers and guests.

     You have recently discussed with us the current economic crisis in the lodging industry that has resulted from the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. You have asked for our assistance in providing some temporary economic relief as you and your customers work to rebuild business and economic stability in the wake of the significant impacts from the September 11 attacks.

     In recognition of our longstanding partnership with LodgeNet, Nintendo is offering to extend the following temporary pricing discounts to LodgeNet:

     This royalty discount is made in an effort to address a severe and, hopefully, temporary short-term economic problem in the lodging industry and is not in any way an admission of any obligation of Nintendo. The discounted royalties provided for herein are limited to the time period stated and are subject to the requirement of timely payment. submission of complete and accurate royalty reports and full compliance with all other terms and conditions of the License

     If you are agreeable to these terms, please sign and date one copy of this letter and return it to me by facsimile (425-882-3585).

     We took forward to the rebuilding of economic prosperity in your industry and to moving forward with our business relationship.
