I find it perplexing when people use the argument "the 3DS will keep Nintendo...

Because is profiting and doing well now...


No, actually, it isn't. Nintendo posted its largest loss in history in November.


Which doesn't mean that 3DS is not profitable.
I dare to assume that the loss maybe probably possibly has something to do with that huge launch of their new console that they were preparing for?

...afloat"

Do people not realize that it has thus far been the costliest mistake Nintendo has ever made (due to timing, an unwarranted price drop, and a strong yen)?

Nintendo desperately needs e Wii U to sell gangbusters and with a high first party attach rate. The 3DS is causing them to hemorrhage cash at an unprecedented rate.


Hey dude, so what is keeping Sony afloat??? A raft made of junk bonds???

I know! It's like technology changes at a rapid rate that allows for decreases of prices and components rather quickly!

Microsoft sold tons of console they knew were defective and got away with it.....at least in my case. Since I didn't get a RROD till 5 yrs after I got the system.

I'm pretty sure Nintendo's billions of dollars with no debt will keep them afloat.


Basically, they will continue to pish it away at this rate.

The days of Nintendo making money off of mainly hardware is getting much harder for them. Exchange rates is NOT favourable for a Japanese company that is HIGHLY dependent on an export business (they can be as big as any company has ever been in the Japanese market but if you look at the global video games market, revenue mostly generates from the western markets). 3rd party support is STILL very lacking. Basically, Nintendo needs a new business model that includes much stronger 3rd party support (for licensing revenue) as well as a MUCH more robust alternative revenue streams (DLC, sped up software release schedule, new IPs, services based revenue streams, etc.).

And how much money did Nintendo lose? Like $150 million?

Do you understand that's literally pocket change to a company like Nintendo? Who has tens of billions on lock?

Do you understand most companies (like Sony) have losses in the billions?

If Nintendo's biggest loss is $150 million, lmao, they literally have nothing to worry about at all, especially since they usually make a profit.
