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.

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.

If Nintendo goes heavy with dlc they can make even more money.

Nice spin.

If you deemed profit as the utmost of importance then you'd foolishly think companies like Tesla, Amazon, Netflix, Uber were small players.

Any worthwhile analyst knows revenue is what highlights marketshare best.

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

PSN for a couple of years has made more money than the entirety of Nintendo. This FY its slight below.

Playstation as a whole made more money that Nintendo and MS Gaming combined for a few years. This FY, its below both combined.



Most companies last FY are in significant R&D mode with very few releases. Nintendo on the other hand had many releases last FY, and might be slowing down for this FY. I am sure the delayed Sony games didn't help at all, but in the next FY the profits will cover for the rest of PS5 R&D+ Marketing I suppose.

It is good to see most companies doing quite well.

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.

I was thinking they could still pump DLC or new Monster Hunter World for PC but start making a console specific MH game for Switch.  Now that I think about it might not be best match for Nintendo.  I just wanted to see more content pushed out on Switch from top tier IPs.  Who is to say any talent would stay with studio when bought.  It could be a Rare situation where most Rare employees left when Microsoft bought them out then Microsoft was left with some IPs but no talent to produce those IPs. 

I suppose the best way is for Nintendo to just establish more studios themselves.  They have a ton of neglected IPs that they could have the new studios work on till they get their feet wet.  Put them on a new F-Zero, Excitebike or truck, 1080, Wave Race, Advance Wars, Earthbound, etc with a few vets overlooking the projects.  That way they can have more AA games to fill in dates while waiting their big AAA releases.

Anything above 0 was already too much for EA, Konami and Activision Blizzard, they don't deserve making profit for their shenanigans.

let's include Coca-Cola and oil majors there.



Very nice. Now let's hope that these profits go back into making great improvements to their Hardware, Software, and Services. Same for Sony.

Be looking forward to improvements from both companies across the board.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, Fifa 20 (Not Switch Version), Madden 20, Sea of solitude and COD MW 2019 are good games, have you played them??



Crazy to think about.
