Locked: Nintendo is worth more than Sony!

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo is worth more than Sony!

Hmm, I appear to have misread part of the data. That and had a bad translation of Yen in my head. Makes sense.

Well, that makes the point I was going for entirely wrong.


Edit: Was curious as to why Nintendo's Total sales would be so Close to Sony's, had a very slow moment with translation of Yen (to the 69 billion dollars reported in their Americanized sheets) which essentially removed a decimal place, making Nintendo extremely close to total revenue with sony. Not quite the case. Hence, wrong.



See Ya George.

All Nintendo has to do is build in a multimedia player in a new gameboy, give it sleek design and compete on the MP3/4 player business. I don't know if they can outsell Ipod, but I think they could become the no.2 brand.
Or they could set up a anime producer and make animes of zelda and other franchises. That way, they could cooperate with disney to establish a solid place in the market.
And if they build a phone in the DS, they would gain even more sales in the Japanese market, watching the popularity of the DS and the endless possibilities of mobile phones in Japan.

So, that are three branches Nintendo could easily reach by EXPANDING the thing they already do so great: making games!



Owyea... The true leader has arisen ... ...

 This one is for another 20 succesful years!      And now i'm gonna drink on it ...

Nintendo's sales in the U.S. have not reached their potential, spokesman Toyoda said last week. The company has in the past sold about twice as many consoles in North America than in Japan or Europe, he said.

Nintendo has so far sold about 2.37 million Wii consoles in the U.S., 2 million in Japan and 1.47 million in other regions, including Europe, since the November debut, he said.

 

 Querying why the numbers for units sold quoted by the spokesman is so far off the numbers this site has.

Judging by how much they are spending in their hardware and software all that massive amount of money they are receiving will go to two places .....marketing and money for the shareholders .

The numbers that the spokesman mentioned are the ones of the latest financial report of Nintendo, which includes sales until March 31st, 2007. 

The numbers of this site include sales until the week ending June 17th, 2007.  



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

I think this can turn around quickly when actually (more) profitable slimline PSP and / or slimline PS3 products hit the market.

Nintendo is a tiny company in comparison to Sony, Sony employs over 50 (!) times the amount of people as Nintendo does (which IMO is a good thing!), Also Sony can easily afford to make huge investments they did for the PS3 as they have done over the past years and still generate healthy profits due to its overall consumer electronics performance.

Later when they generate profits from their gaming devision this adds to the overall profits. Shareholders often look at shares as a short term investment.



Naughty Dog: "At Naughty Dog, we're pretty sure we should be able to see leaps between games on the PS3 that are even bigger than they were on the PS2."

PS3 vs 360 sales

so... does that make Nintendo the worlds largest Consumer electronics company?



I guess so hea ...

 

Oh wait: I dunno what Philips' revenue is and stuff...

wow, if sony were to come back you'd probably say" evil has taken over" or "dont worry nintendo was #1 they'll do it again" You guys think this will last? You have an idea of what nintendo is dealing with? no comment..
