For the quarter, yes.  For the half they still have a small loss in Operating Income, but profit in Ordinary and Net Income.

OLoss went from 9.4 bil to 0.2 bil correct? That's a massive improvement that's hidden from plain sight. I wonder what they did to lower it so much.

3DS sales were quite a bit stronger than last quarter.  If comparing to last year, their selling, general, and administrative expenses were substantially lower in Q2.  Down almost 11%.  If it had been flat (or up like in Q1), we'd be looking at a ~5 billion yen Operating Loss for the half.

What brought them down so far?



So is this it? Is there going to be any Q&A? Or a schedule of upcoming Wii U and 3DS games? Or am I thinking of something else?

Oh kk. I can go to sleep then lol



Wait, so Nintendo was PROFITABLE this quarter?
Is it opposites day or something?



Better than I expected, although I don't expect much anymore.

So the new LTD shipment total means that VGC has not been that far off for July to September. They added only another 100k too much. Could have been worse.



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

Not sure, don't see any elaboration in the report.  It does seem that their more favorable Ordinary/Net Income is due in large part to a 15.5 billion exchange gain due to yen depreciation (most of their sales are overseas and they report in yen, so in this instance the depreciation can be advantageous).



3ds shipments for this quarter are half of the same quarter last year. WiiU still poor.

WiiU shipped: 7.29m, VGC sell through: 7.31m (overtracked by a few hundred k)

3DS shipped: 45.42m, VGC sell through: 45.04m (spot on I'd say)



I'm not really here!
