This generation, Nintendo made ~$19 billion while Sony lost ~$4 billion and MS lost ~$1 billion. Having one unprofitable quarter (due to "R&D expenses and currency exchanges") is not reason to throw a hissy fit.

Also, the Pokemon game you referred to is a free promotional spin-off, similar to previous non-Nintendo system Pokemon releases such as the Pokémon PC games, the free to play online game or the cell phone game from 2006.
I'm sure Nintendo will be fine, but pretending their issues amount to one bad quarter is laughable.

Wii has been in trouble for abit. Hope Nintendo learns from its mistakes. Think they got over confident on the back of the wii/ds, back to reality time.

Plan very soon to announce strategy for combination of digital and packaged and synergy between the two
I want to believe this...I really do. But my faith in Nintendo with anything online related is almost zero percent.

More tweets from Gibson. A few of the points seem a bit garbled, but I guess that's what happens when you livetweet a conference like this.

Mobile phones, tablets, PCs, and streaming games is where it's at.

There's no turning back. All console manufacturers will either become part of that world or be left behind.
Portable gaming changing but it going to take much longer for that to happen to console gaming .
There still going to be new hardware for a while.
Nintendo mess up with 3DS , let see what they can do with Wii U .

You're missing the point, it seems. How many paycuts did Balmer take for RROD? How many did Hirai take for the PSP's failure to absolutely crush the DS like everyone in the gaming media said it would?
Hirai and Stringer took a paycut last month. Ballmer had his bonus cut last year.

I think this is the one you're referring to: http://youtu.be/oRrviEHeN2M (so everyone can see) "This isn't DS. This is Nintendo 3DS"
Isn't it weird how this ad doesn't show off or really mention the 3D effect at all

The US ads I've seen heavily emphasize the 3D (which I have 0 interest in, but I would think it would be a major bullet point to emphasize??)

To me, even though its probably a poorly translated tweet from something Iwata actually said, its still just empty Nintendo PR talk promising better online, better digital offerings, better 3rd party support, etc. Same old, same old.
