I'm not claiming anything, I'm telling you what the figure states. There's nothing subjective about it in the slightest. And you're not sure where I'm finding these numbers? I already told you the source. Their 2011 and their 2012 annual reports.
If you want to see the size of their bank account to find out how much cash they have in hand, you simply go to their consolidated balance sheet and look at the figure. There's absolutely no rocket science involved here. Nintendo is a publically traded corporation and these figures are public information available in their financial reports and said reports are extremely easy to locate online. Furthermore, Nintendo even converts it to the current USD figure at the time for you if you look in the appropriate column so there's not even a need for someone to do any conversion.
Just what is it you're looking at for 40 billion USD that makes you so sure you're correct and that what Nintendo themselves state in their reports is incorrect?
