Not too sure about that. Sounds like "cloud-based software" drove the earnings.
I was being sarcastic, because with numbers that have no breakdown for us to really determine the cause some are claiming that other companies should copy them even if Nintendo is at a very succesful pace with Switch and Sony have hit it highest evaluation in 10 years... so for me it's like 3 different paths that so far have been showing good results (that we lack info to really compare)
