It was at 4.2 or 4.3 million last month.

Anyway, I have a BAD feeling about that investors meeting. I know a lot of people want Iwata out, but really, the problem is that these investors would find someone to sell Nintendo out in a heartbeat, as a good chunk of them care nothing for game quality or what gamers actually want.

They need a strategy for the Wii U 5 million over a year now when MS and Sony are almost at that within 2 months is pretty horrendous

Iwata also halved his pay and Miyamoto took a 30% cut, along with a couple other members at Nintendo. Pretty admirable move.

@nintendoboy16: i thik the problem with wiiu was 2013. nintendo messed up big time they haad that full year and they barely released anygames. either mario kart or smash should have been released this year along side donkey kong country returns. nintendo delayed alot of games and who known when bayonetta is getting released.

they wasted a full year also wats stopping them of releasing gamecube games on the eshop res'd up. hopefully they will do better this year but apparently first quarter is dry season this year also with only donkey kong. and i have a feeling bayonetta will berealesed the end of the year and x will get moved to end of 2015

These numbers are pretty promising. Hopefully Nintendo can manage to stay in the black during Q4. Ending the fiscal year with a net gain would be pretty big for them.

Man I normally don't get mixed up on profit stuff like this, but didn't they say just recently that they are getting screwed over on their operating costs and are in the negatives? I think I might be forgetting something, making shit up, or both.

Edit: Oh wait, this is just one quarter. I was probably thinking of a yearly loss.
