Forums - Sales Discussion - In the last full FY of 19/20 Nintendo generates more operating profit than Sony(G&NS), Capcom, Square Enix, Ubisoft, Konami, and Sega Sammy combined.

Oh thats surprising. Did anyone else read somewhere that Playstation Network alone made more revenue than the all of Nintendo?

Im bad with these fiscal reports, too much data

Operating Profit ≠ Revenue.

I'm aware. But if that was Playstation network alone, it reinforces why I'm surprised. But of course with PS5 around the corner I'm sure sonys spending is through the roof



Surprised Ubi is losing money. I thought Rainbow Six was doing well for them. Then again they ruined Division and Ghost Recon, so who knows.

Also Nintendo dominates this because of their strong full priced software. MicroSony would fucking love to sell their titles at 60 for an eternity. But they are third party boxes mostly.



Wish Nintendo would make a bold moved and pick up a major Japanese third party through buy out. I think Capcom would be perfect with all their IPs and they could even leave their games on PC and mobile while moving everything else to Switch after last games in development for MS and Sony are released.

I don't think Capcom would go for that since 66% of their software shipments are for PS4 which has a huge fanbase on that platform. Also with the new direction Capcom has taken with Monster Hunter (World) the Switch would struggle to handle that game and any future sequel for it.

It's quite shocking to see that Ubisoft is apparently losing money. I think they had to delay a ton of games if I remember right, so that is likely to blame.

Nintendo has always had a great eye for making profits, they've learned from there mistakes from the wii u era.

I barely touch Ubisoft games any more.  Played one last gen, and two this gen, having started Far Cry 4 a few weeks ago. I was basically loving it, but also living in dread at the prospect of having my entire campaign fall apart. The amount of main campaign mission bugs. Uhg. I've had to re-do several main and side missions because I couldn't progress, ie: pick up the bobble, get in the truck, anyway, not really what I'm driving at.

The game harasses the player to sign up for Uplay every time the game is booted. I pick "skip", because I don't want to give the ghouls at Ubisoft access to all my online information so that they can sell said information to their cockroach friends, in exchange for Elephant War Paint, and a couple of stupid guns. Moving on...

A few days ago, I decided to buy a Far Cry pack, on sale on PSN. Far Cry 5, Far Cry New Dawn, and Far Cry 3 remaster + all the DLC for these games. But. I also decided to wait as long as possible to do so, to give Ubisoft an opportunity to fail. Which they did.

After finishing the campaign last night, I wanted to go online. Yeah. Now the option to skip Uplay sign up, is not there. I mean, they literally still present it as an option, but to go online, you have to create a Uplay account. Unbelievable. I can't stand it when companies hold back content I've already purchased behind some fake-ass barrier. So, these greedy shaved apes have taken the goodwill generated by a piece of software I mostly, really enjoyed, and flushed an immediate purchase of 3 games, and all future purchases, down the toilet. Forever. Except South Park. 🤕

So when I see Ubisoft in the red, it doesn't surprise me. But really, this was an excuse to rant.

Yes, very impressive of Nintendo to win an arbitrary comparison for which only Nintendo is eligible.

No, to be honest, I'm really surprised that Nintendo was making a bigger profit than EA.
I also thought that japanese third parties were as small as ants compared to the West. I'm glad they're doing well lately.



My prediction in 2021.

SW: 30m

PS5 16m

XBS: 7.5m

That's right people. 1 awesome game console and tonnes of amazing games can turn the company back at top.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

I was expecting Take Two to be rolling in money. I'm sure they still are but not as much as I was expecting...
