Nintendo Reports 46% Profit Fall

IGN.com: Q3 profits take a hit as company makes way for 3DS... (3DS, Nintendo, Nintendo DS, Wii)

This is good. This means that we should be seeing the Wii 2 sooner than we think.

THAT IS BAD.
Cause it will be twilight princess all over again...

The release of the 3DS will turn this around pretty quickly.

Twilight Princess was a good game. Not the best Zelda, but a good one nonetheless.
ChickeyCantor  +   1679d ago
Im not talking about that, im talking about the fact that it will be a port from a Wii game put onto the next console.

Still outsold the competition and made over $600 MILLION in profit before 3DS (that they announced spring 2010). I want to see another company announce something a year off and still dominate. :)

Oh how the mighty have fallen. It's only a matter of time when Nintendo's profits rise due to the 3DS.
SasanovaS1987  +   1680d ago
even with their 46% profit fall, im sure they made the most money :/ so i cant really call it a fall...more like...hey, their making shitz load of moneys, but not as much shitz loads of moneys as before...a billion dollars is still a billion dollars even if its half of 2 billion...ITS FREAKING BILLION DOLLARS FFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

To be fair, i still think they earn more than sony and microsoft's game studios put together, i could be wrong but, it would be rather funny.
SonyNGP  +   1679d ago
Hmm...
Thudd  +   1679d ago
Well its still over a billion dollars so they are doing just fine. MS made 600+ million and Sony will show a smaller profit by far than that. Nintendo is still smiling.
ozstar  +   1679d ago
source on that 600 million?

And i didn't see Nintendo losing millions on their other divisions, like for eg. smart phones that nobody bought.
Louis_Guzman  +   1679d ago
So they only made a cool billion instead of 2 billion. Yeah, poor Nintendo..
HungryGoku  +   1679d ago
All Nintendo produce are Wii and Ds there not as loaded as you people make them out to be. Yeah all this money but there hardware is the weakest psh ok lol.

But I do have to admit Mario Kart sells like crack.

Nintendo doesnt care they have the release of the 3DS around the corner
kesvalk  +   1679d ago
well, i think there is a shortage of ppl that still didn't brought a wii, but as others said, the 3DS comes and they will be swiming on money again...

It simply means - more money was send on R&D (Wii2) and ramping up for production of 3DS. Normal business curve.
