Kombo Reports: "Nintendo has released their Quarter 1 results for 2008, and it's quite impressive. To say the Wii and DS print money for Nintendo is now an understatement."
It prints money. :)
Is someone peeing in Kirbys mouth?
It really does...
LOL nice avatar/pic with kirby.
lol funny video wii printing money microsoft lost on fixing RROD sony lost on lowering price and for now 1-nintendo 2- microsoft 3- sony sony is still losing and didnt gain what its paid on it
sony's gaming division is already making a profit, and the PS3 division will probably make a profit within the next year (its selling like twice as much as it was selling last year)
yes sony made a profit but that doesnt erase the 3 billion they put in the red....1 profitable quarter of only 100 + million wont erase that 3 billion dollars gone...... nintendo on the other hand is just cashing in left and right
have to spend money to make money.
Whether you like or dislike the Wii, everyone has to admit that in terms of sales it's kicking the other consoles' asses.
Its amazing that this toy has sold do much.
Indeed, it has sold a lot compared to the two other toys.
The title is misleading because it seems that the 70 million DS's and 30 million Wii's was how much they made (which would be 100 million). After reading it, it clearly states that those are the amounts of UNITS sold, which produced one billion more in profits for the company. Misleading title for sure.
Nintendo are looking like geniuses with the Wii. With all the focus on the core gamer, nintendo changed the game by catering to the casual gamers. Good for them, glad to see Nintendo back on top. At this rate we can say that the Wii is not a gimmick or fad, it sparked a revolution whether we like it or not. Hopefully Wii 2 can have hardware upgrades so it can run state of the art games for the core gamer but I doubt it because Nintendo knows where the money is at.
Tell that to the handful of people I know who bought the wii in the beginning and either sold theirs or don't play it anymore cause they are bored with it and the majority of the games coming out are crap. Im not saying you are totally wrong but you aren't totally right.
Doesn't matter if the people are selling their consoles, they are still outselling both next-gen consoles combined every month. Nintendo is still pocketing every cent. Can't hate on success and Nintendo has plenty of it right now.
If they get people to buy their products, more power to them, I wouldn't go as far to say "revolution" though. It's not like they didn't try motion before. Do you think the Wii is on the same level as the other two? I personally hate when other people compare the three like they are similar. The only similarity there is they play games. It's like comparing a knife to a set of multi-purpose tools that cost more. Wii= Gaming console PS360= Entertainment Devices All are good but one does far less than others.
Nintendo stole that money from gamers and gave allmost nothing back for it besides a pile of sh!tty minigames.
Mart this is the second time I agree with you in just 10 minutes, whish I've never thought it would happen I know how you feel, (just like me).
yup, nintendo just charging a lot for wii for wat it offers and bringing few good kiddy games and some sport and fit games for the casual and the casual fall in it!!! and now any kid ask his parrents to buy him/she a wii they will be happy and willingly to buy it so they can use it too
Doesn't matter if its kiddie games or crappy minigames, overall this is a business and if the masses are going to keep buying these games then if it isn't broke don't fix it. It doesn't seems to be slowing down anytime soon so the Nintendo hate needs to stop pronto because it will continue to outsell both next gen consoles for years to come. I don't even own a Wii yet I'm defending them, crazy ain't it?
it is 107.16 million in profit not 1 billion. WOW HOW STUPID ARE PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD.
omg ur so dumb. u should learn how to read. its 29.62 million units sold for the wii and 77.54 million units sold for the nintendo ds. get it...UNITS. well aparently everybody is smart and ur the only dumb one in this world. LOL haaaaaahaahaa u got owned WOW HOW STUPID CAN ONE PERSON BE IN THIS WORLD LOL
Considering that Nintendo hasn't dropped the Wii's price at all and they are selling tons of Wii games every month, a 1 billion profit sounds pretty realistic. At this point, I don't think that Nintendo will ever drop the Wii's price for another 1-2 years at least.
i would tell all u hardcore gamers f**k off also. if i made so much dollars profit
I think I would tell god to f*ck off if I believed in it. I'll have a swimming pool full of dollars, and I'd put gold leaves in my drinks so I can say I sh*t gold.
For less than $20, a bottle of goldschlager will allow you to claim that last part =)
Lol, I know that, but I'd want to do it everyday. :D
I have the Wii and although it has a lot of garbage games, there are some unique games that are gems. You Wii-haters have way too much time on your hands. When do you boys go back to school? LOL
now re-invest that money into more game studios and more good games!
With all of that money Nintendo is making, I'm expecting some more good games like the above person said. Nintendo does have a handful of A+ titles but most of the games on the console suck. And I play my Wii everyday so I know what I'm talking about lol.
