Sony and Square Enix stock prices have plummeted after Dragon Quest X was revealed for Wii and Wii U yesterday. Sony’s stock prices in particular has been falling for the past three days and today dropped to its lowest level this year. The reason Sony’s stock price dropped is due to the fact that Dragon Quest X wont be appearing on the PlayStation 3.
Only one word……Damn
one more word: PWNED
All together now…damnPWNED
Lmao you guyz are hilarious
This makes me happy.
Wow. Big win for nintendo I guess.
How is it a big win? Did you not read the part about Square’s stocks plummeting? Guess what? That means the buyers don’t like it coming to the Nintendo system.
No, it means shareholders don’t believe in Nintendo.
It’s a loss for everyone, including to Ninty.
But, we have to see what will happen in the near future… There’s nothing absolute yet.
I still expect sales for the game to be high. People are forgetting that the online part is only optional. The entire game can still be played in the amazing Dragon Quest format and battle system offline.
This make me so Happy that sony should stop making Console and worry about making TV
and the award for most idiotic fanboy goes to…
Obviously this kid never owned a Sony Product…
haha yeah, i’d argue the gaming is one of the few things they actually got right.
Now that was an idiotic statement >.>
Nintendo won this battle.
How do you figure? It’s pretty much showing that people don’t want it on the Nintendo console either. Use logic.
Doesn’t change the fact that they made sony price go down.
I don’t see how that is becuz nintendos stock would fall too if they didn’t want it on there. They’re disappointed that Sony won’t have it and at square enix for the fact that they won’t multiplat it.
Wow, that’s rather stupid…I’m interested to see how this experiment will turn out, myself. Because, after all, DQX was confirmed for Wii ages ago and Nintendo I’m sure loves that series too much to let it go.
Can’t say that I’m really all surprised by this development. Nintendo’s stock as been bad since E3, so a third-party announcing a game as a Nintendo-exclusive isn’t the best way for said third-party to win the hearts of investors.
This worries me. If Square Enix’s stocks plummeted, doesn’t that mean people don’t have faith in the Wii or the Wii U? I wonder if this could cause Square Enix to make this game across all platforms or at least for Sony as well.
Dragon Quest X was confirmed to be for the Wii a long time ago, though. Not sure why people are just now getting upset about that.
Also, that’s rather petty.
Yeah, it really doesn’t make much sense at all. I don’t see why it matters, the game is going to sell really well, regardless of what console it’s on, so people are totally overreacting
Because it’s a mmo?
Final fantasy Versus XIII release date will change that situation-troll-
unless final fantasy XIII is ported for the wii U or worse(even though i HIGHLY doubt it will happen) it get completely changed to the wii U
“I’m so happy Sony’s stock is falling! Yay!” Nowhere on the internet have I seen more people moan about Sony at any opportunity than here. Don’t get me wrong, I’m pro Nintendo but damn, stop being so petty.
And by “here” I mean the MyNintendoNews comments section in general, not just this one…
This website is full of trolls, don’t pay attention to them. Eventually they go away.
Trolls and fanboys. I support Nintendo over sony any day, but for christ’s sake, that doesn’t mean I want them to go bankrupt. People just overreact to everything
I support both parties equally. Sony And Nintendo are incredible. But I agree, there are TOO many Fanboys on this Site. Especially those who hate sony. Ofcourse this is a Nintendo site, which is understandable but some take it a little too far…
I support both also but nintendo is number 1 to me just because I have been a pretty big fan since the nes
Well see, i was close to finally getting along with sony again and buying a vita in addition to a 3ds, but recent press conferences have further confirmed sony’s arrogance and douchebaggyness. (like them publicly attacking other consoles etc)
So now i am boycotting. I’m not one of the people complaining about sony all the time though, and while i find this development just, i’m not going to be like “HA sony suckzs neener”
Exactly how I feel. Until they change their attitude, Sony is dead to me.
Don’t for a second think that all companies aren’t arrogant, example: the 3D’s retarded-ly high launch price…
Not to mention that Iwata was specifically quoted as saying they weren’t going to launch it for that high of a price, but launched at that price anyway because of the huge reception it got at E3 2010. So yes, he was being arrogant. All businesses are arrogant because all business live and die on money.
You sound like a hypocrite. So it’s okay for Nintendo to be douches, and screw people over with the 3DS, openly admitting it months later, but if Sony does something, it’s a problem?
Nintendo didn’t mean to screw ppl over. You as well as everybody knows it was an honest attempt with the 3DS which failed and they’ve apologized and are trying to make up for it. You try to create something for ppl to enjoy and wen it fails and ppl blame you, how would you feel
There’s a massive difference. Nintendo just wants to make money, of course they’d make the price higher. But Sony makes rude statements about its consumers, Nintendo’s consumers, Nintendo, Microsoft and Microsoft’s consumers.
Maybe the Sony stock is falling just like every other during the stock crisis. Or maybe its because of Sonys VirtualBoy2 ^^
sony had mg4 this gen and thats it.
If DQX won’t be on PS3 so Sony’s stock plummets, why would Square Enix also have plummeting stock prices?
Yeah, there’s a side to this story still left untold…I’m gonna go do more research.
Sony’s stock drops and there’s no immediate prediction of doom and Sony leaving the hardware business and selling Tacos on the street? Maybe it was labor day. If So I eagerly anticipate this balanced reporting from internet video game news websites any day now.
Wonder why SE dropped, they are making the game. Guess investors believe now no one cares about the Wii, and 3DS sales so far has them worried about the future. Investors are idiots.
I sometimes wonder if investors have any idea about the video game industry.
Yeah, who is investing? Are you investing? Is anyone here investing?
Hey Sickr, How come you never post news when Microsoft Xbox 360 makes an insulting comment to Nintendo, as well? Why only Sony?
Or anything else besides the insults? Like Sonys Stocks, in this post for example
Because Microsoft doesn’t publicly insult other companies very often. I’ve heard them say that their first party titles are the best, but… that’s just about it. And why would MyNintendoNews post about Sony if it doesn’t have anything to do with Nintendo? Insults are directed at Nintendo, so they’d be relevant to the site’s purpose. The reason for the stock drop is related to Nintendo, so that’d be relevant as well.
@Aravas nailed it.
Agreeing with a lot of people above. It’s great to be a Ninty fan, but wishing failure upon other companies (well, unless it’s relative failure) is just low. What ever happened to the humble Nintendo fan?
OMG Sony is Do0mm3d!!
Wow This game will be successful then.
Serves your ass right Sony. Next time, either don’t talk shit about the competition or keep your damn mouth shut.

It’s funny how none of these Nintendo fan boys realize that this is NOT a victory for Nintendo. It means people were so highly anticipating these games on the PS3 that when that time failed and was instead reverted to the Wii U, people stopped caring and the stock dropped. Tell me, did Nintendo’s stock go up?
Nope, but Square Enix’s stock went down.
Well, it’s not surprising. SE’s stock fell because of the new announcement. Every time Nintendo announces new hardware, their stock falls. These are investors worried about the product even though they know nothing about gaming, only business. If I had to take a guess, then I would say it’s not that gamers don’t want DQX on a Nintendo system, most of them are on Nintendo games, but rather, it’s the thought of being connected to the Internet even while playing on your own that gets into gamer’s minds.
Haters will just come here and say that it’s because it’s on a Nintendo system. Such ignorants.
Haha, so funny. Thanks Square Enix, for hurting yourself and Sony at the same time.
I’m going to say it’s due to the must have online part of DQX. People really don’t trust wii for online and be truthful, when you think of online gaming, you think PC, PS3, 360, not nintendo.
Sony stock fell because it’s release day for R3 and everyone thinks it’s gonna flop because it’s an FPS in the era of CoD.
It’s also on the Wii-U and I can expect a good online system, maybe not the Wii’s version but I can expect it on the Wii-U’s version.
I notice a lot of people above saying Nintendo won. In this case, nobody won today.
Sony lost by not having DQX, Square Enix lost through their stock plummet, and Nintendo lost through the prejudices created by their record with online on the Wii.
Wii U just needs to come out already so Nintendo can get respectability in that area.
Ppl shouldn’t be weary of the online with Wii becuz if done right, it works very well jus like how monster hunter tri and Mario Kart was. They had the best online experiences on the Wii. It is different to have a need of constant internet connectivity though
Still unsure, jus wait for Wii u version

I don’t quite understand the stockholders’ reactions here… they hate Dragon Quest X, but are also butthurt it won’t be on PS3? Pick a side, Asia.
that sucks i want playstation have games it drives nintendo to make better hardware to compete with playstation
better hardware+1st party games= best brand out their.
The PlayStation has enough games, Nintendo systems really need them, and no more need them, than the Wii. Besides, PlayStation has been getting all the IP’s that used to be exclusive to Nintendo systems since the first one so Nintendo systems need games, and Nintendo shouldn’t be the only ones making games for their systems.
I pray to God that this won’t be the precursor to a new “video game crash of 84”
well atleast we got Skyrim, right fellas.
agreed, DQX looks like a good rpg. but skyrim is easly GOTY.
You realize they play COMPLETELY different right.
Is it actually right to say it’s GOTY when it isn’t out yet?
Sheesh, and you call us fanboys.
everyone has opinions my friend…
^this, probably wont give a shyt for DQX
^this…only 66 more days…..
I actually feel really bad for Square Enix. When they finally make stuff on systems that I like they hurt. I will buy DQX day one. Heck, I will probably buy both the Wii version and the Wii U version. Hopefully this won’t discourage Square Enix from making big profile games on Nintendo systems.

I want a Final Fantasy games on the Wii U. And a real Final Fantasy game, like FFX (which I am currently playing), not one like Crystal Chronicles.
*ahem* SONY’S STOCK DROPPED YAY NOW SONY CAN GO FIRST PARTY AND WE’LL ALL PLAY UNCHARTED ON WII U!!!
thats how idiotic sony fanboys sounded
The S.E. stock plummet isn’t good for me but the Sony stock plummet is important because this could mean people won’t buy PS3 and that mean more sales for Wii and even more importantly the Wii U
Dragon Quest X is exclusive to PS3
they call it Ni No Kuni there
