i think nintendo was under the impression that they would scoop up the wii fanbase with the wii u, and since things are slower than expected, they are shifting all the focus on the real money maker for them, and rightfully so. but they need to do something about the wii u, fast.

The thing is...
The Wii, and NDS is selling. Nintendo wants to make sure that the 3DS could ''coast'' throughout this year (2013), so they may focus entirely on the Wii U.

Sales aren't great (Wii U), though with everything thing else putting up decent unit sales numbers (Wii, NDS, 3DS), Nintendo isn't as panicked about the situation as must people are.
