They are hardly comfortable now

While I agree with what you are saying, I hardly think it's time to pull the plug on the Wii U.

Remember that even if both consoles launch this holiday season, getting one is going to be like pulling teeth. The Wii U was pretty hard to find right before Xmas, but into the new year there was supply. If the PS4 and 720 do release, there is going to definitely be a shortage of hardware to go around. This leaves Nintendo in a great position provided they have some great software.

I think this Xmas is actually a make or break for Nintendo, they could do some serious damage since the 1 million launch units of PS4's (obviously not a real number but usually each console launches with around those numbers) will be swallowed up in no time flat. If they can have some AAA Nintendo games available, then sales could definitely improve drastically.

Nintendo should use extra pillows. Works for me anyway..

Nintendo wasted their head start and E3 conference last year..The PS4 hype is spreading and now people are waiting for MS to respond...The Wii-U spotlight is gone and @ E3 it's gonna be all about PS4 and 720..Xmas 2013 will be split between PS4 and 720 if both launch..

Agree, they should kill the wiiu and do a bc wii and wiiu with a new beast of console to compete with ps4 and 720. Dont waste time, resources and loose income when you already know what sony and ms has. A smart industry knows when to win and know when to fold them. Now is the time to quit the wiiu and do a new console.

I think Nintendo has packed a pretty solid console that can easily compete for a big share of the videogame market. I find these ideas of killing their newest console ridiculous to say the least...

I have a WiiU and I'm pretty happy with it.

I'm pretty sure Nintendo still does't care what Sony and Microsoft does. I don't see that changing anytime soon.

They did with the gamecube. Which is why they tried a new strategy with the Wii which was a hit for them.

The Wii was all about not caring what the competition did. It wouldn't have existed any other way.

As long as Nintendo sticks to that, they are fine.
