What in the world are you even talking about? Better to withold a statement than post something completely abstract that doesn’t make sense.
[quote=“spooie”]Sony EXPECTED to LOSE money on the Playstation 3, and Microsoft EXPECTS to lose money in different territories of the world. Both of them have subsidiaries in over departments of their company to cover the expenses of the PLANNED loses on their consoles. Nintendo does not. Nintendo has to lower their forecast because they DIDN’T expect any loses. That is bad for the company and that is bad for their investors and that means that NINTENDO losing money will equal people losing JOBS at Nintendo in the near future.
Just because they made more money than another company isn’t going to hide the fact that they’re suddenly losing a ton of money, or the people that lost money will effect.[/quote]
But Nintendo isn’t losing money. They made $1.2 billion profit! In six months! Nothing has changed other than they adjusted the amount of money they expect to make in the next fiscal year. That’s it. They’re still the most profitable of the three by far - this fiscal period, this year, this generation. Period. And that isn’t going to change.
Well I don’t know about you but September isn’t exactly the hottest month in gaming. To base anything on the summer months is just shaky right off the bat.
:lol But of course! Nintendo is primarily a software company. That’s a no duh moment.
Did you miss last E3? In terms of big blockbuster Nintendo games, 2010 is pretty stacked. Super Mario Galaxy 2, Metroid: Other M, and possibly Zelda Wii (or at least, much more revealed about it.)
As for the rest of this year and leading up to those games, NSMBW is going to be big. Count on it. I wasn’t expecting much from it at first, but it’s becoming increasingly apparent that it’s this year’s Mario Kart. It’s going to be big and sell a ton of units (software and hardware) for quite a couple years to come.
But again, why does everything rest on Nintendo? Sony’s financial are in the pits yet no one is complaining about their first-party output. Nintendo has been stellar this gen, and outside of a Kirby, F-Zero, or Star Fox game, has released practically one (and in some cases more) new entry in every one of their series that is bigger and/or better than previous entries.
The short-sightedness, both hindsight and foresight, in regards to Nintendo this generation is nothing short of staggeringly idiotic.
My beef with 1up is far-reaching and too complicated to go into here. But in the future, it would probably be better not to post anti-Nintendo news from 1up, because you’ll almost always get that response from me.
