Despite recent troubles in the North American and European branches, Sega overall had a good fiscal 2010, which ended March 31, financially speaking. The company as a whole saw its operating income rise to ¥36. 7 billion ($397 million), a huge increase over fiscal 2009′s operating income of 8. 3 billion ($89. 8 million). Operating income refers to profits minus expenses incurred in running the company — in case you wondered why we picked up on that random statistic.

The consumer games division made ¥6.3 billion ($68. 2 million) in operating income, returning to profitability despite a year-over-year drop of 7.5%. The profits in this division were driven by ridiculously strong sales of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games (6. 53 million copies! ), as well as million-plus sellers Aliens vs. Predator (1. 69 million), Bayonetta (1.35 million), and Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing (1. 07 million).
