They lost $926 million.

Look at that, almost $1 billion.

Now, Nintendo usually looses a fair amount of money at the first half of every year and make up for it at Holiday times... Now, that's usually happens but this time it probably wont. Last year, they lost $26 million... But that was last year, and this year the total loss increased by %3,000.

From what I'm reading, they are just talking about how bad the games are for the 3DS but I DISAGREE completely with that... Seriously, the 3DS failed but don't blame the games. Games like Luigi's Mansion 2, Animal Crossing, Mario Kart 7, and New Super Mario Bros are coming and you try to say that these games are the problem? It's not.

We are looking at it all wrong, the problem is the hardware. Nintendo took the decision of making a touch screen device which made it go against the big dogs (Apple, Sony, Microsoft...) and it just can't keep up with all of these recent devices. I mean, if you try to compare the 3DS to the iPhone as devices the iPhone wins hands-down. It's hardware, not games.
Your kind of imploding my mind right now...

Nintendo said that Skyward was their main focus for some time now, so I'm pretty sure this game is going to be AWESOME.

Sad news. That Nintendo lost so much money. I thought the 3DS was awesome, and that's despite the fact that mine refuses to do system updates. And yet I STILL enjoyed the damn console. That has to say something.

Also, I agree, Skyward Sword is surely going to be a big money maker. I'm not even a big Zelda fan anymore, and I'm totally excited for this game. It looks incredible. I thought Twilight Princess was awesome too, and now SS is making it look like a pushover, if you ask me.
