3. Reason for the revision
Regarding Home Video Game business, "Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles" achieved robust sales particularly in the US and Europe. Additionally, "Monster Hunter Freedom 2", which was released in February 2007, achieved sales of over 1.5 million copies in Japan. "Monster Hunter Freedom 2" is the first title to achieve these record sales among those developed for PlayStation Portable. Moreover, in fourth quarter, sales and pre-order of "Devil May Cry 4" as well as "Monster Hunter Freedom 2 G" showed healthy growth, which covered the weak performance of Arcade Operations business and Arcade Game Sales business. However, ordinary income on non-consolidated basis is expected to underperform our forecast due to the accelerated appreciation of the yen.

(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.
