Nintendo Sells 300,000 More Wii U Consoles But its Sales Still Hurting Profits

Nintendo has announced its consolidated results of past six months ended September 30, 2013. These results reveals a downwards trend in all areas especially in the net income. The net income of six months ended September 30, 2012 was 27,996 million yen which is now reduced to just 600 million yen this year. Net profit per share goes down to 4.69 yen which was 218.93 yen per share in last year. Nintendo reports gross profit of 62.0 billion yen and operating loss of 23.2 billion yen.

Nintendo sold 3.89 million units of Nintendo 3DS hardware devices while the software sales of 3DS reach 27.38 million units during past 6 months. But Nintendo Wii U hardware still fails to impress gamers as its sales have a negative impact on Nintendo’s profit. Just 0.46 million Wii U hardware units were sold. And 6.30 million units of Wii U games were sold. This might be the reason that the game maker has not changed its Wii U forecast for next year. The company is expecting same number of 9 million Wii U consoles sale through March 2014.

The worldwide sales of Nintendo DS (DS, DS Lite, DSi and DSi XL) hardware and software were 0.10 million and 5.25 million units respectively. And Nintendo Wii hardware and software sales hit 0.47 million and 14.90 million units respectively.
