Nintendo Releases Expectedly Ridiculous Numbers


Posted October 30, 2008 - By Raymond Padilla

Nintendo released its first-half financial results for the six-month period between April and September 2008. Part of the press release contains updated figures on many of its key products. The sales figures are likely to cause executives from Sony and Microsoft to weep or have a jealously-induced panic-attack.

  • With shipments of 84.33 million hardware units worldwide, the portable Nintendo DS has surpassed cumulative shipments for Nintendos iconic Game Boy Advance (81.36 million).
  • Nintendo DS has shipped 454.63 million software units worldwide.
  • Shipments of Nintendogs, the puppy-interaction game for Nintendo DS, have topped 20 million worldwide.
  • Shipments of the Wii console are at 34.55 million hardware units and 229.85 million software units worldwide.
  • Shipments of Wii Fit have topped 8.7 million worldwide.

Wow. Those numbers are ridiculous. More seriously, Nintendo is in an unique position considering how dire the Japanese market is. The yen is still amazingly strong against the dollar, pound, and Euro. Both the Wii and DS are still in high demand in North American and European countries. Considering these factors, which could very well change drastically at any given time, Nintendo is still in a strong position. This is a stark contrast to many East Asian consumer electronics companies (Sony, LG, Samsung, etc.) that are currently struggling.
