Analysts Expecting Nintendo Will Fail To Meet Profit Forecasts

Posted on Tuesday, December 3 @ 07:15:55 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Despite the fact that Wii U has failed to gain any real traction among consumers, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata remains optimistic about the company reaching its year-end financial goals. However, a number of analysts don't share his same positive outlook, remaining unconvinced that Wii U will sell the numbers Nintendo is hoping.

"Wii U has become a game console only for Nintendo fans," SMBC Nikko Securities analyst Eiji Maeda explained. "Wii U needs groundbreaking software to draw casual and hardcore gamers." 

The company's full-year operating profit forecast is 100 billion yen ($974 million) with a total number of projected Wii U sales pegged at 9 million. That said, the average estimate among analysts is 57 billion yen in profit and 6.2 million units in Wii U sales.

"They steadfastly refuse to consider that the product is not interesting to consumers," Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter said. "They will fail to hit 9 million, and they will likely miss their profit goals."

Do you think Nintendo is being a bit too optimistic about Wii U sales? Can the likes of a new Super Smash Bros. and Mario Kart really turn things around for the struggling console? Comment below and let us know.
