    ._. . I was expecting the opposite after the announcement of Fire Emblem, the MH games and the release dates.

    Small note: I translated it myself, so sorry if there were any mistakes with the translation.

    Funny how this also happened when Nintendo announced their Wii U. Same with the Wii.


    Perhaps it's a trend that they lose money before they make some, or so the saying goes? [​IMG]

    And I was expecting a decent explanation to what the hell happened and how they are going to fix it. [​IMG]

    To be honest, though, a company like Nintendo, at the moment, makes more money when less people own their stocks, since more money goes just to the company on their sales, now. This is what makes money fall in their pockets, making devs happier, making more, better games, and leads to a happy circulation of money. Don't see this is a problem of doubt: see it as a solution, by peeling their layers of stock owners!

    You're not investors. So your wet dreams of a Fire Emblem with 3D aren't a widely held dream.

    Investors like $.99 cheap app games, not the announcement of $40 games and lame accessories.

    Plus Monster Hunter on a Nintendo system isn't gonna get people ecstatic, especially when the PSP games sold a hell of a lot more each (minus the original Monster Hunter Freedom).

    stock market is filled with retards. thats simply it

    95% of the investors have no idea what the fuck they are even investing into.

    they dont inform themselves about the product, the marked, the consumer, nothing. chances are half of the people investing in nintendo drop the stock after they realize its a game company

    No, but you can predict based on MH sales in the past

    Yep. Which is why they might sell even more than the PSP titles.

    ...That is, if they get localized.

    Seems like they have little faith in the 3DS. Maybe when the games start selling, they'll be singing a different tune.

    I think we've been through this before. Stock holders and investors have no clue in the industries in which the companies they invest in are operating. The fact that stocks drop after such announcements isn't an indication of a flop, but merely of the fact their investors, whom have no idea how Nintendo or other gaming companies operate to appeal to their audiences, chose to think that this move is too much to handle.

    Stocks dropped across the board in Japan, it wasn't limited to gaming companies.

    Their stock went down not only after the announcement of the Wii U, but also when they had announced the Wii years ago. Yet, the Wii made them a ton of money in the long run.

    Investors buy/sell based on their expectations, not consumer expectations.

    Isn't this basically restating what I said a page ago?
    This is not a bad thing for Nintendo. Rather, this is a sign that shows that each console sold will earn them more money than before. And I do think that they're in need of some cash, judging from their salary cuts...
