3. Reason for the revision
In Home Video Games business, "Phoenix Wright 4" (for Nintendo DS) and "Resident Evil 4 Wii edition" (for Wii) are achieving favorable sales, and "Monster Hunter Freedom 2nd" (for PlayStation Portable), which was released in the previous term also continues to grow.
In the meantime, Arcade Operations business and Arcade Games business are not achieving their sales as expected.
As a result, operating income, ordinary income as well as net income in mid-term period are expected to exceed over the latest forecast announced on May 18, 2007 due to favorable sales of Home Video Games business.
Forecast for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2008 is not changed due to continuous weak performance of Arcade Operations business and Arcade Games business.

(Note)
These forecasts are based on the Company's current assumptions and beliefs in light of the information currently available to it, and involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties. The Company's actual results may differ materially from above mentioned forecast.
