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".
Posting this pic should be mandatory every time some troll says nintendo is doomed.
To be fair, that's a year out of date. >__>'
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.

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.
