Nintendo's profits hit by poor Wii U sales

Nintendo has reported a return to profit for the six months to September 2013, but the firm is still hampered by poor sales of its Wii U games console.

The Japanese firm posted net income of 600m yen (£3.8m) during the period, in contrast to its 28bn yen loss during the same period in 2012. Nintendo said the Wii U had a "negative impact on Nintendo's profits". However, the company still predicts that it will sell nine million consoles by March 2014. The company, which also makes Super Mario and Donkey Kong, reported a 2.2% fall in sales to 196.6bn yen. It cut the prices of both its Wii U and 3DS consoles in order to make up for the falling sales.
