Q: This will be the first Nintendo game machine that the company's going to be selling at a loss at launch. How does that change the business modelforNintendo?

A: The business model doesn't change dramatically, in that as soon as we get the consumer to buy one piece of software, then that entire transaction becomes profit positive.

It's probably a safe bet that everyone who buys a Wii U will buy at least one game. Smart business model

I saw that this morning. This strikes me as a good plan for Nintendo. If need be I imagine when the ps4/720 launch Nintendo could reduce the price and still break even; given how production costs should go down over time. I bought a game, so Nintendo made money from me.:)

Maybe if the Wii U is successful enough, they can buy out SCEJ and her affiliates. I'm sure they can already afford it from their dominating sales from... Well, everything, but a little more never hurts.

I bought lots of games. Nintendo is definitely in the black from me.

Nintendo does need the money, given they haven't made a profit yet this year from a quaterly stand point. I would imagine that will change early next year, now that the 3DS is finally doing well. Once the Wii-U gets a solid base, I imagine game sales will pick up as well. This will also help profits. :)

The Secret Service better investigate Nintendo because they are just printing money.

They got the money from Fox when he bought it for the first time before selling it to you.
