If the pre-order rates are anything to go by it doesn't look like there'll be a slump for Nintendo between Wii and Wii U, especially with NSMBU launching.

^ Nah they have a good lineup of casual kid games this holiday like All Stars, LBP Karting, Wonderbook, Ratchet & Clank, etc. All they have to do is show it off and market it right.

As for Nintendo it looks like they're having stock issues with the Wii U or they simply just didn't make enough on purpose so that can be a big advantage for Sony, getting sells from people who can't get a Wii U. Also the regular Wii has been in a slump for a while allowing the PS3 to surpass it in total sells for a few years now.

It's going to be interesting to see once the old stock sells through. Will Sony introduce the 12GB SKU in North America?
