Namco Bandai has reported its financials and within the pages, a net loss of ¥6.04 billion ($66.7 million) for the first half of its fiscal year was noted.

A net income of ¥1.28 billion ($14.14 million) was reported for the same time period in its last fiscal year, and while the loss sounds like big one, the publisher is expecting to line the coffers with ¥8.5 billion ($93.6 million) net by the end of the fiscal year (March 31, 2010).

Ben 10 led in software sales,with Alien Force and Protector of the Earth sell a combined 810,000 units.

    I don’t know. I see this as a Japanesse company struggling with shifting markets. Add in second hand sales. Add in the fact that Ben 10 is their top game. I think it less to do with the downfall of the evil console gaming empire then you like to make things out to be. I would that Tekken sales should help pick these guys up a bit. But I truly think many JP devs/pubs should rethink their JP specific thinking.
