  • Here are some very interesting numbers taken from the article. The chart at the top reveals the profits as well as the losses for all of the biggest video game companies. As you can clearly see, Nintendo is, quite simply, SWIMMING IN POOLS OF MONEY ala Scrooge McDuck from DuckTales.

    Below you will see another chart that shows the Global Revenue for each of the various video game publishers. As you can see, it paints a drastically different picture than the above chart. But once again, Nintendo is rolling in the dough and seem quite unstoppable at this point.
