Analysts believe Nintendo may announce its first profit drop in six years. Gamesindustry.biz reports analysts expected the game giant to announce 11 percent lower revenue and 30 percent lower profits.
Income for the Japanese giant is likely to fall 11 per cent to JPY 249.3 billion, the first drop since the 12 months ended March 2004, according to Bloomberg.
"Nintendo may cut its profit projection about 30 per cent because of sluggish sales in the first half, the price cut for the Wii and currency-related impact," said Satoru Kikuchi, of Deutsche Bank AG in Tokyo. "Investors are expecting the company to fully reflect its business environment in its forecast."
