No. Nintendoomed is an absurd creation of the gaming media & the uninformed. Nintendo is strong.

No. The Wii U may be doomed but Nintendo most certainly is not.

No. And in fact, it's Sony which is doomed and perhaps Microsoft's Xbox venture too

Not for putting up an act or for lulz, do you believe Nintendo is doomed? Not talking any theoretical where Nintendo still exists on Earth in the distant future and can't escape some kind of planetary annihilation, just talking in the "foreseeable future".

nintendo ain't doomed at all they have the 3ds dominating everything everywhere

Wish I could say the same for the Wii U
Is Metroid's gun part of his armor or is he a cyborg like Data from Star wars?

True, though it's not like enough can happen in that much time to greatly disrupt the pattern it shows.

As for the poll, it could use an option between the first and second. I wouldn't say the Wii U is doomed, but while it's certainly not doing very well, there's still every chance it can do well in time.

3DS is like three years old now. Can't imagine why it's selling better than Wii U.
Oh that's right it's had more time to build a library duh.

Voted second option.

Wii U is probably up a creek at this point. Yes, it will probably recover some...maybe. Honestly it's defied even my most pessimistic outlook so far so maybe not. I'm guessing it winds up about like Gamecube, though it will be lucky to have as many quality games as GC that flew under the radar (GC deserved a better fate than it got, Wii U has deserved the bad sales so far).

Nintendo probably isn't doomed, but given their past 15 year history, they should re-evaluate what they're doing. They've been profitable even off of failed systems in the past, but Wii U supposedly isn't thus far, and they could be painting themselves into a corner on the home console market.

I dunno what you're trying to tell me here but...

if you compare the wii u with other nintendo (except virtua boy) consoles on its timeline its actually selling worse than even the gamecube

and don't give me that crap about waiting until mario kart and smash arrives because the gamecube had the those games as well and never really took off

I saw a wii-u thread on the front page and was wondering if the forums where in denial about it.

But it's almost kind of nice to see most people aren't in denial about how bad the wii-u turned out.
I don't give a damn if you don't like me, because I don't like you, because you're not like me.
