No Comment 31 Views

Nintendo recently reported its year-end financial numbers. For the year ending March 31, 2010, Nintendo reported net sales of 1,434.3 billion yen with overseas sales of 1,206.6 billion yen, roughly 84% of sales. Operating income for the year was 356.5B ¥ and ordinary income was 364.3B ¥ making the net income for the year 228.6B ¥ or roughly $2.45B US.

Not hurting for money are they? They report that sales were somewhat lower than expected and were negatively impacted by the lowered price of the Wii, fewer strong Wii titles in the first half of the year and the appreciation of the Yen. I guess they feel they should have topped $3B US.
