On a GAAP basis, net loss widened to $415.3 million, or $4.15 per share, from $24.9 million, or $0.24 per share, in the prior-year quarter, due to a goodwill impairment charge. Adjusted net loss from continuing operations was $32 million or $0.32 per share. Analysts had forecast a loss of $0.20 per share.

New hardware sales fell 41.1%, reflective of recent announcements for next generation console launches in 2020. New software sales dropped 5.3%, as growth in Nintendo Switch software titles was more than offset by weaker title launches across other consoles.
