SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT (publ. 11/25/2012, pg. A2)
In a story about Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime, Fils-Aime incorrectly said that Nintendo makes a profit on the Wii U console after consumers buy one piece of software. The number is more than one, but the company declined to say the exact number.

I still see people bringing up this outright lie so I wanted to correct it.

This is useful information. I had heard that the statement had been retracted, but I wasn't able to find it anywhere via Google.

Though it also doesn't prove that the Wii U ISN'T making a profit at the current 3-game attach rate.

Thanks TC. More people need to know. Reggie is a downright liar and terrible representative for Nintendo.

If this is the direction the company is headed in I can see why the masses don't want to be a part of it.
