At last some reasonable news for the two Japanese manufacturers.
The Yen has weakened a little in recent days and is moving slowly back toward more sustainable levels for their exports.
If you remember Nintendo said it was expecting exhcange rates for the rest of their fiscal year of 77 for the dollar and 107 for the Euro.
Unfortunately ever since they said that the Yen has strengthened and the exchange rates have worsened.
However, some seeds of comfort over the last few days, they are now back up at 77 and 104.8 so although they are still losing money on a lot of inventory sold in the two regions, particularly in Europe, the hurt is at last reducing. In Nintendo's case this at least means that the exchange rate issues are in the same ball park of what they expected.
They will both be hoping this continues.
