Nintendo Bails Furiously but the Worst May Be Yet to Come

E-Times: Nintendo has taken drastic measures to spur sales, but it appears the battered ship may be heading into heavier weather.

Wii U won't flop, bar the Virtua Boy (and possibly the 3DS if it continues the current trend), Nintendo's hardware, even if it doesn't sell huge sells well and still makes Nintendo a profit and still sees support from Nintendo. I think Nintendo's real problem is that although Wii sold insanely well, they didn't support it from a gamer's perspective as well as they should.

Sadly, Nintendo seem to have misunderstood what gamers want AGAIN with the WiiU as they show off a bunch of games that will be out on other platforms long before the WiiU launches and, launching in between gens, will help them for a while with easy ports of current gen games, but ultimately, developers are calling for more from consoles and if Sony and Microsoft go above and beyond Nintendo again, Nintendo are just not going to get the third party games or they'll get cut down versions.
