Games giant Nintendo has warned of its first ever operating loss. Although it believes it will come back to profit quickly, a lot will depend on the forthcoming Wii U console which had lukewarm reactions at its launch. The company reported a 61% drop in profit for the third quarter last year, reaching 40.9bn Yen, but warned of a 45bn Yen loss for the year that will end in March.
