Ohes NOES!!!
only 37 million?

How much did sony lose on ps3 it's first year?


37 million yen at that. That's a minuscule amount of money for a company as large as Nintendo. But just remember who is posting this, he tries verrrrry hard to look smart but then ends up being pounded on by those of us with enough brains to know 37 million yen only equals a few hundred thousand dollars. Sure that's big money in our eyes, but like I said, its minuscule in a large corporations. That's only a one month paycheck for some of the head honchos lol.

Maybe someday kirby will grow enough intelligence to actually come up with something worth while, but until then he is still just a nitwit.

Where they once expected to make about 20 million yen, they now expect to lose about 37 million.

Maybe I'm missing something, or maybe it's just game "journalism" but...aren't those extremely small numbers?


20 million yen is $220000 us
37 million yen is $405000 us

Nothing to see here sony losses this every month


Um, profits and losses in the hundred thousand dollar range seem very minuscule for such big companies. Did Nintendo really expect to make such a small profit? The difference between the gain and loss doesn't even break a million dollars.

The sales don't offset some bad news from Nintendo—bad news that was expected and seemed to spur the unusually positive, news-rich Nintendo Direct showcase of last week. Nintendo is dropping its financial forecast for the next three months. Where they once expected to make about 20 million yen, they now expect to lose about 37 million.

Why?

The earnings forecast has been modified to reflect a lower-than-expected sales outlook based on the sales performance in the year-end sales season and afterward. Also, exchange rate assumptions have been revised from 80 yen to 90 yen per U.S. dollar, and from 100 yen to 120 yen per euro, in consideration of the trend of the recent exchange rate situation.

Nintendo is blaming softer demand for older systems, including the original Wii.


Nintendos luck is shifting. Hopefully they find some way to turn things around and make some money. Expect a Wii U price drop 3... 2.. 1...


Quit trolling nintendo just announced the are upping their expeected profit.

You guys had better hope this console doesn't fail. Because then you'd have nothing to troll the hell out of like you're doing now.

If Sony loses that much, then it's good to see that they're still fine.
