- Nintendo (NTDOF) has warned that it expects an operating loss of ¥35B ($336M) for the fiscal year through March instead of a profit of ¥100B, as the company had previously forecast. Analysts predict ¥54.7B.
- Nintendo also projects a net loss of ¥25B vs a previous outlook for a profit of ¥55B, and it has cut its revenue estimate by 36% to ¥590B. The company will pay an FY dividend of ¥100 instead of ¥260.
- Nintendo said the dramatic reversal was due to much lower-than-expected sales of its Wii U and 3DS games machines during the holiday season. That might have something to do with the success of Sony's (SNE) PlayStation 4 and Microsoft's (MSFT) Xbox One, both of which were launched in the run up to Christmas.
- Nintendo now expects FY Wii U sales of 2.8M instead of 9M and 3DS sales of 13.5M vs 18M. The firm also cut its software outlook. (PR here and here.)
