Konami has revealed their QY 2012/2013 report, listing a 15 percent year-on-year loss in its digital entertainment and pachinko divisions but saw a growth in its social gaming sector thanks to the Dragon Collection.

Net revenues for Konami amounted to 226 billion Yen ($2.4B) which is down 15 percent compared to their earnings of 266 billion Yen last year. Net income saw an even larger loss, with 13.2 billion Yen earned ($140M), a decrease of 42.8% compared to last year's reported income of 23 billion yen.

Konami's largest losses were reportedly in the pachinko sector, where revenue fell more than 70 percent compared to last year. In the digital entertainment Konami reported more favourably, only seeing loss of 17.1 percent in year-on-year revenue. The release of titles like Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance did however help boost earnings through solid worldwide performances.

Finances for the company were however helped by the success of the new Metal Gear Solid Social Ops social title, as well as the launch of Dragon Collection which operates in partnership with Japanese social networking service GREE. The Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card game series was also continuing strong performance, recently being recognised by Guinness World Records as the world's largest trading card game tournament for their Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series held in the U.S.

I don't know how many Ausgamers/QGL guys have an understanding of the 'pac****o sector' but having visited the 'land of the rising sun' earlier this year, essentially it's Japan's version of Casinos; and in the places I visited (Tokyo, Sapporo, Kyoto, Iwade) they were EVERYWHERE.
