Transitions of Quarterly Sales ResultsTransitions of Quarterly Operational Profit Results

Nintendo's sales in this fiscal year's first two quarters were at the highest they've ever been since 2005 - 2006, almost reaching 2007's third quarter holiday levels. Once again, the Nintendo DS and Wii's global hardware and software success are credited for the rise. Iwata also posits that "the so-called seasonality factor in determining demand has become smaller." Operational profit has matched the increased sales, resulting in quarterly numbers at their highest in the past three years.

The company's plan is to not only have a single Nintendo DS in every household, but multiple Nintendo DS systems for each household.
