Largely? I don't know.

But they'll get more than they did with the Wii.

At the very least Bayonetta 2 is Wii U exclusive.

Ask again in like 40 years.
Not changing this signature until a new F-Zero is announced. *started 6/18/10*
F-Zero > Mario Kart. If you disagree, it's because you're bad at F-Zero.

maybe for consuls, they will keep their strangle hold on handhelds.

Could the Wii U be discontinued? Sure. Will Nintendo go third party after one bomb? No.

They will, but only insofar as ALL of the major console manufacturers will be third-party next gen.

The modern world of game development won't support multiple proprietary machines past another generation. The current generation has already metamorphosed into generic set-top boxes, with the next gen set to go even further in that direction. By the NEXT gen, they'll have all conglomerated into a single 'home entertainment device' that's just manufactured by different companies, like VCRs and DVD players, and the notion of exclusives will have evaporated because developers and publishers won't be able to afford to develop multiple versions of the same game.

Given the monumental pile of money they are sitting on... No.

They may have enough money to sell Wii Us for their current price, with the casing made out of pure gold and still not go under.
