Nintendo had all of those opportunities two years ago too. And, yet, these are the results. What evidence do we have that Nintendo is doing anything any better to execute on all these strengths

The shipment data is directly from Nintendo 's documents. r nhttp://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/library/earnings/index.html r n r nNintendo may have plenty of cash, but there is no question that they are in a weaker position than they were five years ago. They are no longer bringing in as much revenue, nor as much ...

It is factually true that the growth slowed dramatically. The numbers are there for all to see, I pointed out that this has been going on for six months, said that future reports may shed light on the reasons, and that this growth is important to Nintendo. The only one ...

U.S. sales only, so the ...

U.S. sales only, so the math is right. r n r nUsing Nintendo 's shipment figures would be foolish. Those are not sold to consumers, and have been historically much higher than actual sales. Just look at the North American shipment figures Nintendo reported, and how far behind actual NPD ...

Andr : I believe that I 've written a reasoned analysis of the figures in the proper context for the market right now. The Wii U has almost zero support from third parties in the coming months, particularly Western third parties, and that limits its future significantly. I believe the ...

Yes, getting a full global view would be ideal. Unfortunately, putting that kind of information together is extremely challenging. For example, the public information we have on hardware sales in the UK is very sparse. On the other hand, there is more information available about platform-specific software sales in the ...

While I 'd like to think that Nintendo could consider a Wii U price drop, I don 't see that happening so soon nor in response to the PSV price cut. I think they 're still struggling to get rid of the initial stock which probably already cost them more ...

It isn 't my console-centricity, it 's what Take-Two said: r n r n Add-on content for Borderlands 2, including its season pass, was the single-largest contributor to our first quarter results. r n r n Our biggest contributor revenue was downloadable add-on content for Borderlands 2, and we think ...

Guacamelee is the best new game I 've played this year. And, like you I would not have finished it without cross-save.

EA now has no interest in traditional handheld gaming, i.e PSP, PSV, NDS, or 3DS. Mobile has taken over providing as much revenue as those traditional platforms historically provided for EA. That 's all.
