In their latest financial report in the wake of all the 3DS news, Nintendo's projected profits for the fiscal year fell from their original ¥110 billion to ¥20 billion (which, if you're wondering, still translates into a respectable $257 million). Things are obviously not going as well as the big N would have hoped, but with the PS Vita still looming at $249 or $299 with 3G, the now relatively budget-priced 3DS is looking to have a much stronger showing against its Sony competitor for the holiday season.

If 3DS sales start to pick up and they can drum up more investor confidence over the Wii U with more strong third-party support, Nintendo could easily bounce back during the next fiscal year. Only time will tell if they can pull that trick off, though.
