Relevant text: Nintendo shares rose as high as 46,350 yen (£187.65), a record, boosting its market value to 6.57 trillion yen and narrowly surpassing Sony's market capitalisation for a time, before settling lower. The achievement is extraordinary because, where Nintendo is a pure gaming company, Sony is a multinational entertainment and consumer electronics conglomerate whose interests run from movie studios to mobile phones.
It really isn't a matter of wanting, frankly.
Even when Sony was dominating the market, their games division was making less money than Nintendo was, because Nintendo continued to dominate the hand held market and because Sony took such drastic price cuts and lost so much money on the console itself. So if Nintendo was already making more money when Sony was dominant and they were marginalized, imagine the disparity when that situation is reversed.
Just remember that this has little to do with the actual gaming experience of the consumers. Just because Nintendo makes more money does NOT mean that Sony cannot get great games and, for that matter, doesn't preclude them from winning the generation; again, just look at last generation. All this means is that Nintendo makes more money.
I never said that Sony's -->gaming<--- division ever made more money than Nintendo, or even Sony Corp. and it's subsidiaries as whole do(even though yes they do) I simply said once, twice, eighteen times before. I have yet to see anyone show that the NET worth of Nintendo to be greater than Sony, which is what the thread title leads one to believe....... I've really gotta stop posting on this thread, later.
