Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo Q2 Earnings October 30th - Results Inside


EDIT: Q2 Results are as followed:

Operating Loss of 187 million (embarrassing)

Shipments of Wii U - 300k

Shipments of Wii U Software - 5 million

Shipments of 3DS - 2.4 million

Shipments of 3DS software - 16 million

Wii U still sold at a a loss - affects Nintendo's profits greatly.

Good. Looks like they are on track to meet their full year forecast of 0.9m units for the Wii U.

Fact: Grizzly is the best bear. Disagree and he will kill you with his bear hands.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Biased reviews are a pleasure to read. Just my opinion, of course.

If Nintendo could post an operating income this quarter it would be quite a coup considering the abysmal Wii U performance.

Go Wii U!

Next Quarter Nintendo going to Rockkk!

This one unless MH4 did alot (oh yea it did)....

Ha. I still don't know how they came up with 9 million.

Q: Do the big 3 typically start shipping holiday stock late September?? It seems rather early.

Europe + Japan seems to be under US, so 350k might be too high. Wouldn't surprise me though I guess.


I think Nintendo will have a net profit but an operating loss.

DirtyP2002 criticizing Sony:

The PS4 is your console if you are into Indies and Free2Play games. AAA is not their strength. 

Do these guys like ever lose money? Like I think I heard them not make any profit once in the last 25 years... Like wtf... Nintendo is a gaming only company.... They don't make anything else yet they can still make a ton of profit even when they are losing money on their flagship console? What magic is this?

Iwata said 100 billion yen operating profit ALONE for the FY. So far with the Q1 results they are further away from that goal since they've posted a loss. I doubt things will change for Q2.

Bets with Conegamer:

Pandora's Tower will have an opening week of less than 37k in Japan. (Won!)
Pandora's Tower will sell less than 100k lifetime in Japan.
Stakes: 1 week of avatar control for each one.
