Success, I’ve always said, is much more than market share.
To have a successful system, you must not only sell a lot of the system, but make money off it, too. You can sell all the systems you want, but if you don’t turn a profit, you’ll go down the drain as a company.
Nintendo understands this – nay, it lives by it. While many have been irked by Nintendo’s conservative business practices, if you look at the company’s bottom line, it’s not hard to see why it has gone down the path of fiscal responsibility.
