Nintendo's financials are still in the black, despite the Wii U struggling, and it'll take more than the Wii U's perceived failure to do any permanent harm to Nintendo's long-term chances of success.

Their stocks even recovered significantly the same day they dropped.
So, yeah, Nintendo's finances aren't up to where Nintendo wants them to be, but they aren't in the range where we have anything to actually worry about yet.

I wish people would quit taking every word about Nintendo's Wii U struggles, then blowing Nintendo's financial situation out of proportion because of them.

Yes, they've got work to do on the Wii U, but they aren't in danger of financial collapse.[yes, I know that's not the words the article is using or implying, but that's what the more cynical people would take it to mean, if someone didn't step in and say something]

Still not sure where I stand on Broken Age, personally, but there's definitely a lot of great games due out this year that are worth looking forward to.
