Nintendo has $4.7 billion in bank, $10 billion in assets
Nintendo revealed today before their share holders meeting that they have $4.7 billion in the bank. This is substantially lower than the $8 billion plus they had during the height of the DS/Wii explosion.
Of course this is still very good even after 3 years of losses. With the 3DS and Wii U being sold at a profit now, I imagine Nintendo will stop bleeding money unless R&D for the QOL platform gets out of hand.
In addition to this, Nintendo says they’ve got $10 billion current assets. So whenever some idiot friend of yours starts talking about all the negative headlines they’ve seen about Nintendo and how they think the company will go third party or stop making game systems soon, tell them about this.
