What's in it for Opera financially with the Nintendo deal?

May 10, 2006

The internet is buzzing with the recent announcement of the Nintendo Wii. Of course today Opera announced that the Nintendo Wii would come with the Opera browser.

I was able to dig up a bit more information on the Nintendo-Opera deal.

In January, Opera received an initial payment from Nintendo of 670,000 Euros (around $851,000 U.S. dollars) to cover the engineering work. Opera will receive a royalty fee per unit sold.

Both the Nintendo DS and Nintendo Wii will sell millions. Do the math yourself, and see what’s in it for Opera financially.

    it’s quite hard to do the math with 2 variables missing, isn’t it? πŸ˜‰

    Hmmm let’s be modest, suppose Opera only got 1$ and Wii was as successful as GameCube (20.6 Million units sold), Opera will make USD 20 Million.

    I think that’s great new for Opera! Making the browser free made me wonder where money would come from. But that Nintendo agreement sure does it all.

    But don’t forget that opera is sold seperatly and not bundled with the systems.

    So you just can count the people who buy the operasoftware

    AFAIK only the DS won’t have a browser on it.. so opera will be sold as a cartridge instead.

    yep, opera will be an optional goodie

    I hope that opera uses this money on a *really* aggressive marketing campaign.It needs to reach out to more users.

    I’m pretty sure Opera is pre-installed on the Wii.
