Nintendo has had much higher operating income in their golden years. So it could be higher.
Nintendo had a very cheap to manufacture console, selling like hotcakes with an inflated price, and selling tons of wiimotes+nunchucks as it was used a lot as a party console. Add to this the huge number of non discounted ever games sold by Nintendo, so it's not comparable.
PS: And they had another moneyprinter, the DS.
