Today the game consoles of leading manufacturers Sony and Nintendo are in great short supply and production problems of components.Unfortunately, the issue can not be solved this year, as reported by the news publication The Wall Street Journal, citing the lack of semiconductor components.advertisementThe head of Nintendo Furukawa, who could not reassure potential buyers for lack of optimistic forecasts, also commented on the situation.According to his statement, to cover the shortage of supply of missing components this year will not be able, resulting in a decrease in sales volumes by 8.6%, that is, up to 21 million units. Of course, the manufacturer announced the analysis is not the final, but if you compare it to previous reports, the annual loss from the current deficit could be more than $ 2.6 billion.The situation is not better at Sony, whose financial chief says that during this year will be able to sell no more than 18 million consoles, which is 20.3% less when comparing the analysis with last year's sales volumes.And this is not the limit, because Mr.Hiroki Totoki believes that the strengthening of quarantine measures in the Celestial Empire will only worsen this already pessimistic forecast. There's no point in talking about the long-term outlook, either, since none of the companies has provided an official financial plan for the next few years.And in light of recent events related to the tightening of anti-coveting measures in Shanghai and a number of other cities in China honed in on foreign business, the situation is not surprising.The post is rewardedThis material was written by a website visitor, and it is rewarded.
Nintendo expects to sell no more than 21 million Switch consoles this fiscal year
The Japanese company Nintendo has prepared a report on the results of last fiscal year, which ended in March of this calendar year, only now, which allowed CNBC to clarify the statistics both in terms of finance and production volumes of game consoles.A total of 23.06 million Switch game consoles were sold during the period, down from 28.83 million consoles sold a year earlier.Advertisement Image source: NintendoIn the current fiscal year, which began April 1, Nintendo expects to sell no more than 21 million consoles.This will be the second straight year of declining Switch sales, but the company tends to attribute that to continued component shortages.When it will end, Nintendo isn't ready to predict - only that it won't be this year.Circulation of the updated version Switch with OLED-type display by the end of March did not exceed 5.8 million units.Nintendo's revenue from games increased by 1.8% compared to the previous fiscal year.Nintendo's annual player audience reached 100 million people.In the current fiscal year, the company expects to sell 210 million copies of games, down 10.7% from the previous year.Along the way, it announced a 10-to-1 split of Nintendo stock beginning Oct.1 this year, a move that should make the securities more accessible to retail investors.This week, the company will spend $432.9 million to buy back some of its own shares from the market.All of this has contributed to Nintendo's stock price rising 5 percent since the start of the current calendar year, although assets from technology companies have not been particularly popular with investors at this time.
