When Will Nintendo Abandon the Wii U?

The Wii U is the biggest hardware misstep for Nintendo  (NASDAQOTH: NTDOY  )  since the Virtual Boy. Bearing in mind that the Wii U was put forth as the successor to the hugely popular Wii and that the Virtual Boy was never intended to serve as the company's primary home-console hardware, it's possible that the Wii U represents an even greater failure. Third parties have struggled to find any traction on the platform and Nintendo's own software efforts have been commercial underperformers.

Hey futura, why did you take down your last anti-Nintendo submission.

Next time submit This (both from The Wall Street Journal):

It is against the rules to submit blog posts on N4G.

Give it a break! Weren't the 3DS and Ps3s first years also bad in terms of sales? Look at them now!

though ps3 did start getting better in sales it wasn't til mid-late 2008

After all these games DO come out, what makes you think Nintendo is just gonna STOP making good games? If they want their platform to make a profit, then they'll keep it up, not just give up after the system sellers come.

And as a FINANCIAL adviser, you, Motley, should know that Nintendo stated NUMEROUS time that going 3rd party would HURT them long term, and they'd only make a SHORT term profit.

But other than that, this is actually one of his better articles. Maybe he's wising up.

I hope not I like the wii u and the gamepad. First time i brought a nintendo system before the others and almost felt like i didn't need the ps4 or xbox 1 but i don't want to miss out on infamous, elder scrolls online, destiny and etc. So i got a ps4 also but I hope the Wii u survives I still have friends who think they still make wii games and get confused about the two
