After this situation could be observed last eleven months ago, the market value of Nintendo just before the weekend rose once again over that of Sony. The success of the Nintendo Switch pushes the expectations of the investors apparently in the high.
After the sales of the Wii U was rather manageable and many of the third-party publishers jumped off, it was above all the 3DS, which filled the coffers of Nintendo. Later, the company was extremely successful in the mobile market and with the Nintendo switch the cards were completely remixed. The handheld console even made sure that Nintendo has again a higher stock exchange value than Sony.
As a trigger for the renewed price increase, Nintendo’s announcement is intended to boost the production of the Nintendo Switch, so that the high demand can be served, which is currently not the case. On Friday, the stock market value of Nintendo rose to 5.44 trillion yen or 48.9 billion US dollars. Sony’s market value at this time was $ 48.5 billion.
It’s not the first time Nintendo has been able to get past Sony. Already a little more than a year ago already happened – if only for a short time. Even as the Wii a year ago caused a lot of upswing, the switch manufacturer was positioned ahead of the competition from its own country. The Nintendo Switch came last March and sold alone in the first month nearly three million times.
