i think nintendo needs to focus theirs efforts in wii U if they want to sell it because in Europe the sale are drop every week. I love nintendo games, actually i have the 3DS LL and i love it, but nintendo can´t launch a new console and customers have to wait one year to get games for the new console, this happen everytime that nintendo launch a new stuff, don´t understand why they make it. With my first 3ds I was waiting a year without using because there wasn´t games with the new 3ds LL happend the same, apart the hight price (350€ launch day)

They new portable console was very ugly. It seemed like a portable TV used in bathroom with cheap plastic.

" “So this is part of the transition of our products to new models.”

This is saying they are making way for something new.

If the Wii u is back-compatible then why not stop the Wii altogether?

As least they don't losing money like Sony and Microsoft and the 3DS is doing great, they need to focus on 1st party titles for the WiiU, those will sell systems.

I wouldn't exactly say that Nintendo is locked in a war with Sony and Microsoft for dominance. Sony and Microsoft are locked in a war for one audience and Nintendo covers a completely different one. Unfortunately for Nintendo, theirs doesn't bring in as much money.
