Nintendo: $71 million
Sony: $435 million

Is it time to start worrying about Sony's future?
they have the PC version of Darksiders 2 running on WiiU in 1080 native at 60 fps and full graphics options on. Neither 360 or PS3 can come close

Is that just Sony''s game division or all their products, TV shows, TV's, Movies etc. combined.

Because the only way Sony turned a profit is selling HQs, laying off thousands, and cutting exec bonuses. Nintendo paid money to build a new building, which would count as an expense.

Amazingly enough, having multiple revenue sources is far better than having one revenue source. For this same reason, it is more of an impact when you fail to make a profit because that means multiple sources in your company are failing to make good.

Can we get some trolls that actually put effort into their attempts, please?

Yeah because Sony is after all an electronics company.

My stance on the situation is completely neutral but it's worth noting that Sony's earnings included the entire company, not just their gaming division.

I hope they both do well in the future!

It's ok. Nintendo has a gajabazillion dollars in their bank account just sitting there! Doing nothing! And no debt!

Sony probably sold like 50 buildings to make that profit anyway.
