Nintendo's Half Year Results

Forums - Sales Discussion - Nintendo's Half Year Results

Q1 - 18b Yen lost

Q2 - 10b Yen lost

H1 (Apr-Sept) - 28b Yen lost (down from 70.3b Yen lost last H1)

H1 Revenue - 201b Yen, down from 215.7b Yen in H1 of the prior fiscal year (Apr - Sept 2011).

Half Year had been projected to reach 230b Yen / 20b Yen lost

Full year projection - Before: 20b Yen profit...but now: 6b Yen Profit.

Full Year projection - Before: 820b Yen revenue...but now: 810b Yen revenue

 

Wii U Forecast: 5.5m HW and 24m Games (that probably isn't too crazy - NSMB Wii U and Nintendoland will attach to almost all systems)

Wii Forecast: 5m and 50.5m games (again, not too crazy, they are half way there before the holiday quarter)

Wii + Wii U had been forecast at 10.5m / 70m before, so the forecast is unchanged (as Nintendoland likely wasn't decided as a partial bundle previously)

3DS Forecast - 17.5m for hw, 70m for sw, down from 18.5m for hw and 73m for sw. Nintendo blames the US & Europe for being weaker than expected.

DS Forecast - Still 2.5m for hw and 37m for sw for the year, as before.

 

HW Quarterly Shipments:

3DS - 3.19m (19m to 22.19m)

Wii - 0.62m (96.56m to 97.18m)

DS - 0.45m (152.05m to 152.50m)

 

SW Quartetly Shipments:

Wii - 15.27m  (842.20m lifetime)

3DS - 11.64m   (64.45m lifetime  - including downloadable full games, but not 3DS Ware)

DS - 8.82m (917.61m lietime)

Thanks for the numbers, very useful!

Nintendo, as always nowadays, is meh in the US and Europe.
But good for Wii U, let's see if it can reach those numbers - to me it's going to be hard.



Wii and DS quickly dropping off the map. Will be interesting to see if Sony ships more PS2s than Nintendo does Wiis and DS's again



5.5m WiiUs by end of March 2013.

hmm. That's 1m less than Wii's launch.

That means they only expect ~3-3.5m before xmas and ~2m from Q1 2013.



Nintendo should keep selling Wiis in 3rd world markets if they are smart.

Older and wiser. Still bias and proud though ;)

It already has in some quarters (to be fair, it has for X360 / PS3 too in every year except for 2010-2012).

That said, Wii should jump up to 3-3.5m in Q4 2012 (which is still down by 2m-2.6m from last Q4), because of the price cut, new bundles and last vestiges of major software (Skylanders, Just Dance 4, and all the remnant stuff still selling well). I don't think it's impossible for Nintendo to ship almost 2m Wiis in December (750,000 US, 100,000 MX / CN / BR, 650,000 Europe, 200,000 rest of the world). Someone might be doing a "buy Wii for [$50, $70, $99]" deal in the US too for Black Friday.

Wii did 5.8m in the year to March 2007.

It's nice to know that you still around Source.

Quite impressive the reduction in losses, even with less revenue. On the other hand, thats a big reduction on Full Year's profit. Hopefully they'll have a good post-holiday season :)



Wii is dead i guess.

360 and Ps3 will once again dominate next year.



Now that I look at it, the 3DS did have a pretty decent quarter. XL and Mario did their job, I suppose. Was there a breakdown for regular 3DS and XL?
Also, the Wii U attach rate seems optimistic. Can Nintendo really ship nearly 4.5 games per console after not even two quarters? I mean, 3DS's attach rate is still under 3 games and it's been out for more than a year and a half.

This is for the past two quarters:

3DS

Japan: 2.09M (XL 820K)

The Americas: 1.39M (XL 550K)

Other: 1.58M (XL 730K)

So 2.1m XL vs. 1.1m normal 3DS for the quarter
