Here’s some news that’s making Wario an extremely happy guy. Nintendo’s market value has passed that of Sony. While Sony’s market shares total 17.7 billion dollars, Nintendo is reporting a slightly higher value of 18.4 Billion dollars.
This result can largely be attributed to the success of the 3DS and lift of the console ban in China. Both of these are doing wonders for Nintendo, even though the Wii U sales are still about average, despite recently reaching 4.3 million unit sales.
What’s interesting about these numbers is that Sony is a company that has other products besides the Playstation (TV, Music, laptops). Nintendo is solely a gaming company and is still worth more. This is merely a testament to the quality of Nintendo’s gaming experience.
