EA's stock gained 42% in 2015. Activision gained 89%. Take-Two gained 20%.
Microsoft gained 15%. Sony gained 15%. Nintendo gained 29%.
Konami gained 30%. Capcom gained 61%. Square Enix gained 17%. Namco stayed flat. Sega lost 27%.
Overall it was an amazing year for the financial health of the traditional video game industry.
Two years ago we were talking about bankruptcies and companies bleeding money very fast and THQ actually went bust. Now with a market generally flat, video games are doing extraordinarily well.
So cheer up, it's gonna be okay.
2015 was a very bad year for making money though, most people lost a lot of money, even the top billionaires like Bill Gates, Carlos Slim and Warren Buffett lost a big chunk of their wealth
This makes these gains even more impressive

Yeah welcome your new overlords. Nintendo and Sony had to go up because of previous grievous losses. The other Japanese devs cut major product lines which looks good to the investor but is shit for us. Enjoy your Candy Crush VR games.
>all these fucking clueless shitstains on /v/ who insist a videogame crash is moments away every single day
Just watch, one will even reply to tell me that it really is HAPPENING based on absolutely nothing. I love all these financial and business insider experts who find time to post their flawless predictions on /v/ instead of using it to become a rich wall street fatcat.
Won't be long before the apocalypse cometh.
