As soon as the WiiU was announced and after the conference the Tokyo Stock Exchange showed their true colours for Nintendo's new invention.
Wii F U
Wii U mad bro? Also, a 5% drop means nothing. Fluctuation is common
Yeah, fluctuation upwards is common too, only that didn't happen upon the official announcement of their next system. Hmmmmm, it probably just means nothing, but maybe showing off what looks like a new handheld when they really need to start shifting 3DSs has something to do with the stock price dropping. Just a wild guess though.
Bah. Stocks and trading are very fickle and illogical. I mean apple stocks took a dive when Steve Jobs went to the doctor. Yet he is still healthy. I don't believe this has anything to do with Wii U or Nintendo.
Tell me that again in a few years when Nintendo stocks are half of what they are today. Because there isn't a way in the universe that WiiU or 3DS will match the success of their predecessors. The ones selling their stocks now or right at the end of the holiday season, are the ones with brains (assuming they bought the stock post-gamecube).
When they showed this on E3 it left many wondering wtf is it,? It it a controller or a Console? Many said the console was not shown but wtf would Nintendo not show the console? It's like announcing the new PS4 or Xbox and just showing everyone the controller? Makes no sense Nintendo freaked up.
I think the console was shown at the floor. Don't know why they botched the presentation though
great now every wannabe journalists is cracking stupid wii jokes.
2006 all over again.
No this generation all over again.
It's not unusual for stocks to swing 5% any given day though... <dd
but not when a company has a supposedly great announcement.
hmmmm really?? http://www.gamesindustry.bi...
Nintendo is all about gaming so stocks react directly to gaming related stuff. For Sony the big problems are from other divisions, especially the TV division that is dragging the company for some years now. So stocks react to many factors for them. Same thing for MS, the XBOX turned in big profits and Kinect had record sales but the stock was devalued twice last year.
Stocks go up and down, how this is news?
Because when it comes to Nintendo the people on this site will find any excuse. If you know about Stoks then you would know why this has happened plus it was not even allot nor was it tide to the Wii u. Apple, Rbs, Barclays etc announce profits and shares fall. Ps don't forget this is just a prototype
Tide comes in tide goes out, you can't explain that.
Fu***'n tides! How do they work?
Stocks probably dropped a lot more when wii specs were released. Shows what stockholders know...
Its not gonna make money as much as the casual Wii so thats why
Like I stated,.. There is a lot of mid-long term market speculation every day regarding risk,.. Maybe they see the decline of profits from wii this fiscal year,.. which is normal since new console is announced,.. even if wii drops price,..It is normal,..(plus Nitty did a shitty job explaining what this console actually is) Plus it is probably regulating itself since this will be a bit more core kind of console and not such a huge money bukake,.. And to people who are shitting the specs,.. well,.. you wanted HD zelda and third party ,.. You have it,.. (it may not be truly next gen,.. but nitty was always about fun and their ip games,..) I really would not mind Zelda with Unchearted3 graphics,. and my mom can still play wii bowling,.. they just need to price it competitively to 360 and ps3 and have their ips,..It will do ok,.. lolololo,.. I am defending wiiu,.. and I am not even interested in it until new zelda/Mario or maby Metroid is launched,.. People who write such shit are just a dumb mofos
Well said. It took about 2 minutes of research to see that your main statement is true. The writer of the article should have mentioned that in his article to show how relevant it is to trend of Nintendo stock for the past few months.
To be fair it looks like Nintendo stocks have been on a steady decline from the beginning of the year so I doubt that the announcement of the WiiU had much to do with the drop. Also to note, the stocks are now as low as they were a couple months before the original Wii was released in 2006. It will be interesting to see if Nintendo will be able to regain their stock value to what it was when the Wii was at it's peak. It will probably be hard to tell before a price and release date is announced though.
READ ALL ABOUT IT Stocks go up and down THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE.
So? Sony is down too. So is Microsoft. That's the kind of market we live in...
Good time to buy?
Stocks go down for a reason!
Lol, I love how they're trying to slap this on the Wii U's reveal. As it's already been stated here multiple times, stocks fluctuate all the time, randomly. The casuals are gonna eat this mess up, I'm pretty sure we can all agree on that. It'd be smart to invest in Nintendo right now.
Spoken well. Bubbles.
If you think stocks randomly fluctuate you don't know S%#t about the stock market. I now see how Madoff got rich.
Its sure to rebound. I friend of mine who drives a good ways to work everday said he heard them talking about it on the radio. The way he told me was nintendos share holder are afrird nintendo is going mutimedia. I kind of want nintendo to do that. I'm sure it will rebound tho.
