TOKYO -- Namco Bandai said profits for the three-month period, ended June 30, rose 8% to $694.8 million based on higher global videogame sales. Net sales for Namco's first quarter rose 7.7% to $1.14 billion, yielding profits of $42.1 million. | SEE RELEASE

Consumer videogame sales led the entertainment company's positive performance with 3.3 million new retail game units sold. Arcade revenues were flat at $190.5 million for the quarter, but Namco said Japanese same-store sales rose 7.9% compared with the same period last year.
