What are some large tech companies that are really struggling these days? I'll start it off with Nintendo: Nintendo posts first annual loss of $460 million, predicts turnaround next year -- Engadget Nintendo has announced its first annual operating loss following an initially lukewarm response to its new 3DS handheld and an aging Wii console -- set to be replaced later this year. Nintendo made an operating loss of 37.3 billion yen ($459.54 million) from 2011 to 2012. Net sales dropped by 36.2 percent compared to 2010-2011, despite price cuts on its existing hardware like the 3DS and Wii. The Japanese games manufacturer has also seen increased competition from new rivals on Apple and Android hardware, as mobile gaming continues to go from strength to strength.
