Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo Tops Toyo Keizai's List Of Japan's Richest Companies

Japanese business publication Toyo Keizai has released its list of the 500 richest companies in Japan, and Nintendo has come out on top.

Nintendo has a whopping 946 billion Yen in net cash reserves, and is - as we know - currently raking it in thanks to the incredibly successful Switch.

So much for Nintendo going software only



Think for yourself, question authority

Not bad for a company that has been making video games since the 70's.



Considering how much debt Sony is deemed to have and that it was poised to bankrupcy 4 years ago and that they didn't had any reserves I find this list strange.
Anyway, we know that Nintendo have a good financial health.

Mr Puggsly: "Hehe, I said good profit. You said big profit. Frankly, not losing money is what I meant by good. Don't get hung up on semantics"

Too lazy to actually read the OP's link in full. Is this just because Sony has other ventures that aren't as successful? If they went console/games-only wouldn't they be above Nintendo?

Either way, congratulations.

Nintendo might have more cash reserves

I would argue Sony is far more important to Japan. Sony employs 128,000 people with 40% of that coming from Japan. Nintendo is around 5k with about 2k coming from Japan. Crazy how such small companies can really rake in the dough.

Well this list of most riches companies, not most important. And like you wrote, it's actually very impressive for Nintendo because it's not that big company that have tens thousands of employes like other big comapanies, in this case Sony.



So that is $8.476 billion?



With this dire financial situation it's of course understandable(and defendable) that it was absolutely impossible for Nintendo to have even a slight loss on their hardware. With a company in those dire straits it's just not feasible to increase the value your consumer gets from your expensive devices.

God, I hope someone opens a kickstarter soon enough to help this struggling company from certain doom.
