    И снова печальные новости от Nintendo

    Yesterday Nintendo reported for the previous financial year the 2013th and reported unexpectedly large loss, which reached 46.4 billion yen (457 million dollars). However disappointing sales figures were also the main product – consoles Wii U, failures last year holiday season.

    For the year the company was able to sell Kyoto only 6.17 million Wii U worldwide, of which 310,000 were sold in the last quarter – which means a 20% drop in sales compared to the same period last year.

    For comparison, Sony was able to realize 7000000 console PlayStation 4 as of April 6 this year.

    The number of portable consoles sold 3DS – has not reached a million, amounting to 590 000 pieces. However, for all the time Nintendo sold no less – 43.3 million of these consoles.

    In the new fiscal 2014, Nintendo plans to get a plus, but how much hope will match reality – the big question.
