    1. Says the troll with no life. You’ve failed to realize that Nintendo owns Pokemon according to international copyright laws. The joke’s on you, boy toy.

      1. That doesn’t change the fact that, as he said, they DIDN’T MAKE the game. And Pokemon are only partially owned by Nintendo. It’s actually owned by The Pokemon Company, a consortium consisting of Nintendo, Game Freak and Creatures.

    2. I think your trolling but if your saying that then you have no clue or refuse to hears the major success on pokemon go and it tripled their stocks…destroying phone apps like angry birds. You might want to think though.

    1. It’s basically the closest thing to “Chief Executive Officer” without actually being CEOs. But quite frankly, I don’t know why they’re doing it like this. They should just straight-up promote them as CEO of their respective branches.

  1. Operating income (loss): 290 (millions of dollars)

    To clarify this is a profit, the bracketed loss was put there to mean for losses it would be enclosed in a bracket. Example: Operating income (loss): (290) (millions of dollars)

  2. 3.26 million Wii U sales globally, eh? So that puts their overall global sales up to around 15m from the around 12m it was last year. lol Terrible. Least the 3DS is still going strong so there’s that good news!

    And Reggie got promoted!? Fuck! NoA is doomed to continue to be shit! Hopefully NX will not be region locked so I can at least get games from the UK where they are less inclined to censor shit for the stupidest of fucking reasons or censoring shit that doesn’t need to be censored at all like when they used what looked like Chrom’s cape to censor Tharja simply fixing your bikini bottoms, like all females wearing bikinis do when on the beach and their bikini bottom is riding up their butt, and making it look a lot worse than what it really was.

        1. ||Technically yes but since unlike the Empire days, now he will be judged by the Titans every year to see if he shall continue or not…||

          ||In other words, his position is not that safe compared to before…||

  3. Kinda shitty that they took the titles of “President of” away from Reggie and the other fella.
    I think it’s cause they want to rein things in a bit..
    Maybe they don’t want other countries being confused that Nintendo is a Japanese company?
