Do they need a kick in the ass? Yes.


You're going to be disappointed then, because this forecast revision is for the full year, not just Q4 so it takes the previous losses from 2012 into account. They are currently turning a profit, just not a big enough profit to turn the year completely around for them.

Honestly, they bet too much on NSMBU and Nintendo Land selling Wii Us, but at least they seem to have planned well for this year.

I'll be happy for nintendo if sales spike up, it's gonna happen once better games release. They released with no exclusive "killer apps", it's pretty simple formula for success. I intend too buy a WiiU by the time Wind Waker in HD releases.

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.


It isn't going to fail because Nintendo's franchises are huge.

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

Protip: It's not a strawman argument if what you say is true and non exaggerated.

The people on this board hate Sony. Sony is the one that cut short nintendos golden age. The SNES and NES were the pinnacle of Nintendo gaming and then Sony comes along and we are stuck with the N64, gamecube and worst of all, the wii. While those consoles are ok in their own right (some more so than others) nintendo fanboys will never forgive Sony

inb4 some tool posts wii sales (and ignores n64 gamecube sales) and ignores sales =/=quality.

Nice narrative you have going there.

Sony is brought up when Nintendo's financial situation is brought up. Why? Because Sony's is wrose. In every way. So we use Sony's to put Nintendo's into prospective. So if Nintendo is really doomed by how "poorly" the Wii U is selling then that means that Sony and MS should have been doomed before If Nintendo's supposed "loss", which consequently isn't even true, is so "bad", then Sony's is apocalyptic.

It has nothing to do with hating Sony. But by all means please keep repeating your narrative. The more you say it the more true it becomes right? No it has everything to do with putting numbers into prospective to show that Nintendo isn't doomed and is doing just fine.
