And no chrome trim. That was key.

Christian, you bring up good points. The gutting of the handheld market and Nintendo 's failure overall are clearly contributing factors. But that 's just another instance of the traditional market contracting. Nintendo, more than Microsoft and Sony, was always a better partner for GameStop because of their long history ...

Nintendo 's digital sales are ...

Nintendo 's digital sales are also down 12 from the same 3 month period last year: from 5.7 billion to 5.0 billion. Compare that to most other companies with a digital segment, and you can see just how hard they are struggling to survive in the new reality.

First, apologies in advance, for I only skimmed for a sense of the article 's many points. r n- Nostalgia is poison. Avoid it as much as possible, and continue looking forward. r n- Because they require player interaction, games are particularly susceptible to changes in expectations. I can watch ...

The original Lara, by my recollection, was simply an accomplished adventurer. There was no backstory -- she simply existed, was powerful, and no reasons needed to be given. r n r nMoreover, the first scene in which she appears has three characters: Lara, Jacqueline Natla, and Larson Conway. The man ...

Nintendo had all of those opportunities two years ago too. And, yet, these are the results. What evidence do we have that Nintendo is doing anything any better to execute on all these strengths

The shipment data is directly from Nintendo 's documents. r nhttp://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/library/earnings/index.html r n r nNintendo may have plenty of cash, but there is no question that they are in a weaker position than they were five years ago. They are no longer bringing in as much revenue, nor as much ...

It is factually true that the growth slowed dramatically. The numbers are there for all to see, I pointed out that this has been going on for six months, said that future reports may shed light on the reasons, and that this growth is important to Nintendo. The only one ...

U.S. sales only, so the math is right. r n r nUsing Nintendo 's shipment figures would be foolish. Those are not sold to consumers, and have been historically much higher than actual sales. Just look at the North American shipment figures Nintendo reported, and how far behind actual NPD ...
