    The Big N making Big $$$

    Nintendo has now become the fifth-largest company in Japan, according to Reuters via the engadget article below:
    http://www.engadget.com/2007/07/26/b...ggest-company/

    I guess it helps when they ship out 56.54 million units, and actually turn a small profit on the Wiis due to low manufacturing costs.
    Why can't you just be a good boy and die?

    This just shows how greedy they are. They could have given us a better console and taken a loss on them or at least have it evened out without them making a profit off the consoles as they will make enough off the games and accessories.

    Ya, its my fault that they're greedy. That just shows how biased you are that you can't see the greed.

    meh i might be a little biased, but whatever, can't say that your not biased towards the ps3,

    and they might be a little greedy but they're a company, what's the point of having a company if your not going to make much money off your products

    i never even read the article lol

    You're right about that, but you don't think Sony and Microsoft aren't trying to maximize their profits? They would milk the consumer at every chance too, but they got caught up in a game of one-upmanship, and it has turned out to be less than profitable for them so far. Really, the reason Nintendo is profiting is that they stepped back, and decided to go for a different angle. So far the consumer seems to think they did the right thing, but time will tell how it works out for them.

    I actually disagree with that, the reason why they are rollin in the dough is because of the wii. They knew by giving us a not so much "better" console would make them lots of money. Like it is the best console out of the 3 just not as powerfull. (thats debateable since i started playing xbox live)

    Obviously they made a good enough product, and I'm happy with it...they just decided maybe they should make money instead of losing it on consoles.
