    Move over Nintendo

    Here's something I found I thought some of you
    might be interested in...

    "Latest Figures Bode
    Ill For Nintendo
    Industry: Recently released sales
    figures strongly suggest that the European gaming market,
    especially in the UK, is becoming increasingly disillusioned
    with Nintendo's release policies. European gamers are
    obviously tired of waiting for top releases months after
    their Stateside and Japanese counterparts and seem to
    be seeking solice from the mighty PlayStation. The
    figures speak for themselves. ChartTrack indicate sales
    of British PlayStation games outsold N64 cartridges
    by 3.5 to one in 1997, and the trend is continuing.
    This year, Sony is reckoned to be outselling Nintendo
    by about 3.75 to one."

    3.75 to one!!! GO
    SONY! Good Luck.....Pete

      Sony had stated slowing playstation sales were
      expected until they get the new system out. Appears
      Playstation products are doing very well and hope they shock
      when it comes to earnings.

      Also if interested
      check out aklm game line up in the N64 release dates
      area while there. Stock play for that period between
      Aug and Christmas. Aklm will be a turn around if it
      continues its earnings +. Last Q .03 expected and .09
      actual. This Q it appears 300% + is a cake walk as
      estimates mostly still down while games are blasting. I
      already own the stock and my apologies if this post
      affends.

      • (COMTEX) B: Japanese stocks likely to hold firm
        in coming weak
        B: Japanese stocks likely to hold
        firm in coming weak

        TOKYO, July 17 (AFP) -
        Japanese share prices are likely to stay firm in
        the
        coming week as market participants pin hopes on a new
        premier to be
        elected on July 24, brokers said
        Friday.

        "The market chose hope rather than concern"
        following the ruling
        Liberal Democratic Party's crushing
        defeat in upper-house elections
        last weekend, Masaaki
        Higashida of Nomura Securities Co. Ltd. said.


        Premier Ryutaro hashimoto resigned earlier this week in
        the wake of the
        election defeat, with his
        successor set to be selected next Friday.

        The
        challenge in the race for the premiership from Seiroku
        Kajiyama, a
        former chief cabinet secretary, has driven
        the yen higher against the
        dollar in the hope he
        will herald aggressive economic policies,
        dealers
        said.

        The other candidates are Foreign Minister
        Keizo Obuchi and Health and
        Welfare Minister
        Junichiro Koizumi.

        The market "began to think the
        successor to Hashimoto, following
        voters' severe
        judgement, will step up efforts for an economic
        recovery
        and do its upmost to stabilise the financial system,"
        Higashida said.

        He predicted the key Nikkei index
        would move between 16,000 and 17,000
        on the Tokyo
        Stock Exchange in the coming week.

        In the past
        week, the key barometer rose 480.72 points, or 3.0
        percent,
        to end at 16,570.78, reversing a drop loss of 2.6
        percent in the
        preceding week.

        The Topix index
        of all issues on the first section gained 36.45
        points
        to end the week at 1,277.95.

        Daily turnover
        on the major board averaged 421.9 million shares,
        down
        from 517.6 million shares in the week before. But
        average value of
        transactions increased to 452.6
        billion yen (3.3 billion dollars) a day
        from 341.1
        billion yen.

        The Nikkei fell steeply in early
        trading Monday after the election
        results but rallied
        later on rises in banking stocks.

        Buying
        prevailed on Thursday, driven by the hope that Kajiyama
        would
        enter the premiership race, but eased Friday on
        profit-taking.

        Obuchi promised late Friday more than six
        trillion yen in tax cuts if
        he lands the top job.


        He also promised an extra 10 trillion yen in
        stimulus spending and a
        new team to tackle the nation's
        economic woes.

        Kajiyama also promised tax cuts but
        warned lending rates should be
        raised.


        Financial markets will be closed here on Monday for a
        national holiday.

        In the past week, Bank of
        Tokyo-Mitsubishi rose 75 yen to end at 1,550.
        Sumitomo Bank
        went up 43 yen to 1,403.

        Sony rose 850 yen to
        13,150 in active trade focused on its strong
        earnings
        outlook.

        High-technology leaders also gained ground,
        with Kyocera up 300 yen at
        7,150 and TDK up 610 at
        11,110.
