JamesO writes: "Nintendo has today reported fiscal year revenues of 966.5 billion yen and operating profits of 226.0 billion yen for the year ending March 31, 2007. This is an increase of 90 percent and 150 percent respectively, over the same period one year ago. The Revenues and profits reported are both record highs for the company.

The company has also announced that over the year more than 23 million Nintendo DS systems sold worldwide, with around 123 million Nintendo DS games. In total the Nintendo DS has now sold more than 40 million units.

The Wii is also performing well, selling 5.84 million units worldwide since its release around five months ago. Consumers have also bought almost 29 million Wii games.

For the fiscal year beginning April 1, 2007 Nintendo estimates sales of 14 million Wii systems along with 55 million Wii software titles. The company projects sales of 22 million Nintendo DS units and 130 million DS software sales.

As of March 31, 2008, these estimates would put worldwide sales of Wii at 19.84 million, with the DS sitting pretty with sales of 62 million units."
