Default Wii U's weak sales hurt Nintendo earnings

http://www.latimes.com/entertainment...,6553854.story

http://www.forbes.com/sites/insertco...is-struggling/

In an admission that the launch of its new Wii U console has been slower than hoped, Nintendo Co. slashed its earnings forecast on Wednesday.

The Japanese gaming giant said its revenue for the fiscal year ending March 31 would be about $7.35 billion, down from a previous estimate of $8.883 billion.

And instead of an anticipated $219 million in operating income, Nintendo predicted that it will end the year with a $219-million operating loss.

The number of games sold for each console appears to be falling and, in further bad news for Nintendo, consumers are shifting their gaming time to other devices such as smartphones and tablets.

Doubt anyone is surprised at that.

To be fair, all I have seen here is one advert for Wii U and that was for Mario Bros Wii U. Haven't seen it in any shops either. No promotion?

Default Re: Wii U's weak sales hurt Nintendo earnings

That's what happens when you have one decent game at launch which isn't even remotely near worth buying a console for, and minimum adverts (what, 2 weeks beforehand?)Nintendo can be pretty perplexing sometimes. Hopefully this changes with Zelda HD, WWHD, XCII etc.

Also, somebody should probably check on Chibi. His dick has probably fell off from masturbating over this news.

Default Re: Wii U's weak sales hurt Nintendo earnings

I haven't seen a single significant reason to own one.

You want my money Nintendo? Come out with a remake of every 8 and 16 bit Castlevania for the Wii U in newer graphics, but keep them 2D. Fix bugs from Simon's Quest as well. Release a really really good new Metroid game, and make a brand new 16 bit version of Zelda and Metroid while we're at it. Oh and a couple Chrono Trigger/FFVI style old JRPG's Then I'll buy one.

Nintendo needs to learn the following words:


Marketing

Competition

System-wide Achievements

Now, go ahead. Tell me she died of cancer. Tell me she was in a car crash. Tell me she can only move her fucking eyelids. Yeah, why don't you tell me some sentimental bullshit that will make me 'ashamed' of what I just said.

You pricks are all the same, and if we met in real life I'd bury my boot up your ass. I get more sex than you, little man. So pogo on that you stupid cunt.
