Am I reading this right? Nintendo lost 4 billion yen more than forecast over the first half of the fiscal year. But they reduced their forecast over the whole year by 15 billion. They still expect to make money though.
barely make money.

Looking at it I'm guessing they had some kind of issues with WiiU manufacturing that increased the costs slightly. Revenue forecasts were lowered less than profit which means costs are going up. Since the units forecast actually dropped a bit, means that costs per unit went up. WiiU only thing that would really make sense. Can't imagine Wii, DS or 3DS costs went up unexpectedly in the last 6 months.

It seems they're including digital copies of retail titles in both results and forecasts.

3DS during Q1 did 1.86 millions. Given it did 5.06 millions in six months, this means it did 3.20 millions in Q2.

Are they predicting they'll sell 5.5 million Wii U and 24million pieces of software by the end of March 2013?

By comparison, Nintendo shipped 5.84 million Wii hardware and 28.84 million Wii software by the end of March 2007.

So we're probably looking at around 2.5 million Wii U units available at launch worldwide. How does that compare to Wii?

5.5M will be easily done, remember Wii demand was way higher than Nintendo could supply.

So ... where did Parmenides go? He bumped the Q1 thread some hours ago >_>
His thread but it was someone else who bumped it.

5.5 million Wii U sales seems conservative but to also sell 5 million Wii in the year ending next March 31st? Will Wii really sell 5 million?
Yeah, this is what I'm more skeptical of, but then again it is Nintendo during the holidays.

even 5 million Wii Us seems to be such a small number for worldwide launch and they plan to spread that until the end of march? So glad I pre-ordered

I wonder how the numbers will break down by region

I actually didn't know "store 7" wasn't a store and was the source for first day sellthrough numbers until it was pointed out earlier. The rest are actually anecdotes from guys that do work at stores, though, as far as I know.
Ah ok, thanks for clearifying that.


Nintendoom has taken over the internets

I did not know Wii was getting so close to 100 million sold. 97.2 is impressive
What is Nintendoom with that article? Or do you mean the user comments in that article?

I doubt they can manufacture any more than that.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

Great BD:FF sales considering it was sold out. Performance on Vita titles is kinda poor and no effect on Hardware, still good on Sony that they can convince publishers like Bamco and MMV to support the system.

How good those second week Bravely Default sales are will depend on what sell-through is.

And yeah, Vita is just cratering at the moment, which is saying something given past performances.
