I don't feel it would be fair to blame Sony & MS, they've mostly been trying to kill each other and ignoring Nintendo for the most part, I think most of the blame belongs to Apple because they've stolen the casuals that made the Wii a success

Obviously Nintendo for their terrible marketing and ideas.

I want to move to a nice, quaint house in the suburbs with the T-Mobile girl and make lots of babies with her.

If the Wii U becomes a failure it is due solely to Nintendo whether it be by marketing, support, or whatever else.

Sega died because of itself and Sony is dieing because of itself. You can't blame others for your failure.

anyone who says anything other than Nintendo is a complete moron. Blaming someone else because your product is a failure is just asinine.

NOTE: Before the NDF comes in and attempts to protect Nintendo's honor from the mean internet tough guys, I am NOT saying the Wii U is a failure. But if it was, it would be 100% Nintendo's fault.

Nintendo but for the Wii U to get discountinued means two things

The system is a failure

Or

The system has reached the end of it's life span

Which both are too early to tell at this point.

Pretty much, anyone that attacks you for it is an idiot because honestly the only ones that can mainly fail a system is the company that owns it. The only way other companies can cause a system to fail would be playing dirty with the 3rd party devs and that just creates a slue of issues.
