    And those who say Nintendo is suffering...of course people could always do better, but these are some strong numbers

    Impressive numbers. Mario sure has gotten a lot of sales, but then again there's like hundreds of Mario games these days. It would be interesting to compare average sales of Mario games to Metroid and Zelda games.

    Those are some pretty impressive numbers, but those are just the sales. I would be interesting in seeing financial statements showing the yearly profits of Nintendo.

    I wonder how much money is spent by Nintendo analyzing all of these numbers, and how much value they put on doing that? I'd imagine there are people there that only do that for their job.

    Yeah, the topic title is a little misleading. I thought it was going to show Nintendo's profits. I wonder if they make as much profit as everybody thinks. Obviously they make a ton off of their handhelds, but I'm not so sure Gamecube is doing that much for them.

    You might find this interesting about how well the DS and recent games, Animal Crossing and Mario Kart, are doing (all figures and dates relate to Japan only).

    I have to wonder how things will look 10 years from now. It's already been 20 years for Nintendo (I think). Who will still be around? I'd bet money that Nintendo will be. I don't think they will fade away.

    I made a post in another thread how Nintendo has made more profit than any other system off of hardware. Its because they actually make money when they sell a system.

    EDIT:
    And this is also only through September '05. So that does not include all of the sales from Mario Kart: DS or Animal Crossing, nor the new DS color (Pink, Turqoise, MK:DS Edition) and whatever other games that came out.
