So says a ranking in business publication BusinessWeek. The top forty companies were rated on 2008 sales and international sales percentage.


Consulting firm A.T. Kearney picked the best of the best from 2,500 companies worldwide. According to BusinessWeek, "Kearney then only considers those companies with 2008 sales greater than $10 billion, with at least 25% derived from outside their home region."

Here's how the top five looks:

5. Hyundai Heavy Industries (Shipbuilding)
4. Doosan Heavy Industries (Construction Products and Services)
3. Apple (Electronics)
2. Google (Internet Services)
1. Nintendo (Electronics)


Sony and Microsoft did not make the top forty.

I think the reason why Nintendo is at the top right now is because they didn't take ANY risk at all last year. Unlike Sony and MS who took a gamble on products like zune,pspgo,ps3,windows 7, xbox360. if you look at Nintendo they kept it safe with the usually Wii peripherals and the new DS which is basically the same thing as an hold DS. Theirs nothing wrong with doing this since they saved a massive amount of money on hardware, I'm no expert but im pretty sure the DSi and the Wii are pretty cheap to produce.
