2.  Factors Causing the Revision

Under a challenging operating environment, net sales for the six-month period ended September 30, 2010 were impacted by sales of new game software releases which experienced relatively slower growth.

Operating income outperformed the Company's forecasts due to contribution from highly profitable carryover sales of major titles released in March of the previous fiscal year and strong performance from the Publication segment.

Further, revised forecasts include a non-operating foreign exchange loss and extraordinary losses including a loss on sale of property and equipment and the impact of a change in accounting standard for asset retirement obligations.  

There are no changes to the consolidated results forecasts for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2011.
