current exchange rates are favourable.

As someone who imports a good bit, the exchange rates are still horrible. Nintendo and Sony will continue to lose millions because of it.

Huh?  The weaker the Yen, the more profits Sony / Nintendo make overseas...which is the bulk of their sales.

That means they make more money.

But the yen isn't weak. It's still very strong and far too strong for their overseas business. 87 yen to 1 dollar is better than the 75-80~ it's been floating around for a year or two, but it was 130 yen to 1 dollar at the start of the generation.

Edit: I own the 5 millionith post on VgChartz. Huzzah!

And snuggle the girls be they short or tall,
Then follow young Mat whenever he calls,
To dance with Jak o' the Shadows."
